An inspired night of local, no-bullshit, cool-kids rawk. The Choke are a riot, like the Dead Boys if Patti Smith sang for them and completely forgotten how to write poetry. With Fiasco doing full volume Minutemen herky-jerk and The Back C.C. combing new Columbus with old Detroit. Opener GDFX is the odd-man out, doing wacky chiptunes for the Devo set.
