Our buddy George had clued us in to the Protomen a little while ago, and their music is a lot of fun - to sum up, Megaman Rock Opera. They played two shows last Saturday, one in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn, and we went to both (Darryl joined us in Brooklyn) - ohhhh man. These guys rocked Manhattan, but they blew the doors off the Brooklyn venue. The drummer, Reanimator, threw his drumstick to George, who caught it - WITH HIS FACE. Awesome.
Afterwards we got to hang out and chat with the band, and they are a (large) bunch of very nice guys and gals! Reanimator went out of his way to help us get the drumstick and the top of the snare signed for Yuko and George - thanks man!!
There's not a whole lot I can say without sounding like a huge nerd, but check out their albums (Act II just came out) and if they sail through your town, go see them! You won't be disappointed.
Also, some new things in the store -- stickers and buttons! Take a look:
