Squids Eye Records 2-Year Anniversary @ Blind Bob's 3.14.09

...as soon as we walked into Blind Bob's last night, we knew it was going to be a good one. Mixing in with the legions out on the town for a St. Patty's warm-up round, it was exciting to see so many people out specifically to support the lovable Dayton label, Squids Eye Records. Standing at the 2-year mark, the label's work in Dayton is impressive: they've helped to revive a once-flailing scene and redefine in many ways the Dayton sound. On this particular night, label head Tony Gilbert put together an eclectic bill, giving many of the unknown artists on Squids Eye Records a minute in the spotlight. From the drum-machine driven indie rock of Scott Deadelus and Joey Deady to the jazz-prog of Five Deadly Venoms to the folk-tinged laptop dance party of The Happy Planets, Squids Eye Records showed their range. Sadly, we missed the exciting conclusion of Cry Baby Genius and Astro Fang. By the time we departed, the staff had finally removed the last few tables near the stage as the crowd swelled to near-capacity. If you were there, we'd love to hear about it....

Zing!!

Nice to know Dayton is still full of hate, evil gasses, negativity, and other destructive forces.
