So a couple weeks ago I threw a big show in recognition of running Hex Records for the last 10 years. So I assembled a pretty sweet lineup of bands on the label, or that I've at least done records for at one time or another. Everything went pretty freakin' awesome in my opinion.
Highlights included Ed Gein playing at the Westcott Community Center for the first time in about 3 or 4 years, Prize Country's first time in Syracuse (as well as additional free after show with Git Some) to very warm reception, the final No Idols show after a three year absence, and a swine flu-ridden Pat Kindlon from End Of a Year singing with a surgical mask.... yikes!
The first 25 people in the door got a free copies of a special numbered edition of the Hex Records 10 Year Anniversary compilation (of which there are just a few remaining before the real version comes out... there's actually not much difference at all), as well as a raffle for test pressings of some of the records that were released on Hex this year.
Check the photos below for some of the action. All black and white pics, plus the Night Owls pic were taken by Enrique Blanco. Go to his page for some additional photos from this show and the after show. The rest were taken by me.
