Moon McMullen + David Jones - [excerpt]

Who says we can't have nice things? Local promotion duo Man Finds Fire launched their new venue with an afternoon party, showing off a beautiful space nestled in a warehouse-like building in the industrial strip by Dufferin and Dupont. The main floor features a large (but not imposingly cavernous) open area, with a bar and couches and tall white walls that give the whole thing the feel of a modern art gallery. There's even a comfy upstairs patio with a nice view of the railway tracks and the city beyond. Recently used for film work, the room also sounds more like an intimate hall than a reverberating cave. It's a bit off the beaten track, but well-worth heading out for. Promising to specialize in more experimental sounds (their next couple shows are already announced), let's wish MFF great success and a long tenure at Geary Lane.

Throughout the day, the announced bands alternated with "surprise pop up performances", the last of which was David Jones (who had helped lead off the day as a member of Bile Sister) and the Mysterious Moon McMullen (who happened to bear more than a passing resemblance to Man Finds Fire's Justin Adam) who combined for a spirited set of glitch/noise electronic experimentation.
