Last night, we went to the newly reopened Town Hall to see one of the first gigs there, three local, experimental bands. Shady Bard were the only band we knew, and played an excellent set. My friend wants to do a video for them, and conveniently enough had an idea for it while watching them. Modified Toy Orchestra were true to their name. I liked the Speak ‘n Spell vocals which took me right back. Pram had one exceptional song and lots of others of varying quality. Most impressive for an electronica band was the array of instruments which they deployed, everything from a Theremin to a Marimba.
