The Monday Show Low Down (or “Take the Wrong Way Home”)

Oh, The Movies, The Movies, The Movies… They’re such complete heart-breakers and life-takers, and have an onstage presence so goddamn larger than life that they sometimes spill out over the stage.

They played at The Derby last Thursday night and sounded fantastic -- the new songs off their forthcoming album, especially. If only my digital camera hadn’t been destroyed in a tragic poolside beach ball accident, I’d have shots from that night’s performance. Next time…
