way to the show. Got there just in time for NOMO to start. Couldn't
have planned it any better. They rocked then I went home and went to
bed. I picked up a copy of their second to last record but not their
latest, latest. Apparently everything they played was off the record I
got. Maybe they didn't have the personnel for the new stuff. At any
rate, great show. Hardly anybody saw it, though.
The 506 is really starting to sound good, now, with the new sound guy.
Don't know his name, but I've seen him around.
