There's got to be an interesting backstory to this show. A metal show at the Troubadour without a touring headliner? All local bands?? I don't recall a similar show this millennia. When you consider all the bad shit that has happened venue-wise in this town over the last few years, it's nice to announce a good development for a change. We can't get too excited. This could be just a one-off. IT'S CASUAL's Eddie Solis may have put on that smile and overwhelmed them with a charm offensive. But however it happened, all these bands got in the door of a room that sounds damn good loud. And if we don't show up in numbers, don't expect it to happen again.
