Transmography + La Snacks Videos

Last night's tour kick-off show at the Ghost Room was a smashing success. The room wasn't packed but it wasn't empty either, lots of good energy flowing around. It was my first time in the, former Gingerman, now Ghost Room and I must say I was quite impressed. The lay out is cozy, intimate, classy without being over the top. There are places to sit and watch the show as well as an area to stand and nod/dance/hipster-the-f*ck-out, not to mention surfaces for setting down drinks, jackets etc. The sound was also quite nice, it was loud without clipping or sounding unnecessarily noisy. As far as the performances I didn't see the very first band but both Transmography and La Snacks delivered solid performances. Don't take my word for it though, check out the video I captured:

Lead singer for La Snacks, Robert, must have drank 4-5 pints of beer while they performed their 45 minute set. His rants got more comical and venomous as the set progressed, unfortunately I decided to omit those clips from the Bloggy YouTube this time around. Don't be surprised if you witness a similar scenario when you catch La Snacks on tour though.

Now, I'm kind of upset with myself that I didn't write down the name of this Transmography song I'm about to post but I didn't and those are the breaks. At some point in the future I'll remember/be told the name of the song and I will properly label it. In the meantime here's an Untitled track from Transmography:

I already knew the name of this next song, it's on their album Polydactyl. However, it doesn't feature that cool Zelda keyboard sound like the last song.
