Ninja High School - It's All Right to Fight

The shuttering of Blocks Recording Club came in a couple stages, with news of the collective cleaning out their office and a retrospective at Long Winter bringing feelings of nostalgia to a certain segment of local music fans. But it was still proper that there was an occasion for folks to come together in one last celebration that felt a bit like a high-school reunion, with old show-friends getting caught up through a long night of music.

The night began with one of the label's most emblematic groups taking the stage with a joking list of possible updates to their name (Ninja Retirement Home, Ninja Hip Replacement, etc., etc.) as Matt Collins and co. struggled to remember the bulk of their rapid-fire lyrics, in between friendly bickering on stage. Not too much has changed, in other words.
