As expected, Gutbucket (above) were great. Pitom (below), who closed out the night, were also excellent, although for some reason I have their CD pinned as a somewhat aggressive mix of jazz and heavy rock. Live, they were more moody and fusion-oriented, but still great.

What was really shocking was the turnout: around 50 people packing Galaxy Hut on a Monday night. I’m sure some portion of those folks weren’t there for the music, but hey, they paid the cover like everyone else. Strong representation from the D.C. avant-rock/prog scene; it’s always nice to see this many people come out for fringey events.
