The Buddha Den NTRO/XPO feat. Engine the Gun/Tin Toy Robot @ Oregon Express 9.24.08

...although we've been without Internet here at The Buddha Den for the last several days, we are still active and hosted our third NTRO/XPO last night at The Oregon Express. Opening the evening we had a fine trio of acoustic performers for the open mic portion of the evening, including the requisite set by AJ (along with a couple of tuned from Phil Whittaker), Ben Schwab (from Costa Mesa, CA), and newcomer Tyler Terry...

...stepping into the featured performances for the night, Tin Toy Robot made their debut. The new band, featuring three members of local fave Astro Fang, tore through a brief but torrid set of punk-inflected synth-driven numbers that were destined to bore themselves into yr psyche. Augmented by projectors and and animatronic reindeer, the band certainly made quite the splash on the Dayton scene. Keep an eye out for them in the coming months...

...winding out the night, we had a subdued set from Engine the Gun. Due to some technical glitches, the typical loops that define Engine the Gun were absent on this night and, in an attempt to carry on, ETG proceeded with a short set of self-proclaimed "sad bastard music". Regardless, Engine the Gun delivered a sleepy set that was a fine way to close out a Wednesday night...
