The Secret Machines @ the Hiro Ballroom

The Hiro Ballroom + a special "in the round" performance + The Secret Machines = BRILLIANT! Last night the Secret Machines celebrated the release of their second album "Ten Silver Drops" by performing a "one of a kind" set in the round. The stage was set up in the middle of the floor with all three members of the group facing each other and the audience surrounding them. This stage set up for some reason really fit the Secret Machines. The set featured a lot of new material which all sounded really great to me. At time the band was plagued with technical difficulties. Other than these few problem the set was great. It definitely restored my interest in the Secret Machines which had been depleting for a while. The set was also filmed for a possible DVD release.

They played for about an hour and twenty minutes. They almost didn't encore because of the technical problems they were having but I am glad they did because they played First Wave Intact which is one of my favs.

I'd hope they play a little longer than that when they hit Chicago, but honestly, they could fart on a snaredrum and I'd still be happy seeing them. These guys rule...

Killer photos by the way...
