So pumped that they won. They really deserve it. If you're going to bamboozle and get a chance, catch one of their sets, since they are playing all 3 days.

I wonder if the Break contest is still fixed? A few years ago, a band (Band A) was competing at Mexicali at their Break Contest. They were beat by a band (Band B) who was previously eliminated at the Stone Pony date. Band B ended up winning the entire Break Contest that year. That's the only story I heard about the Break being fixed. I'm not sure if there's more but I'm sure the bands that entered The Break in the past knows more inside information.

Anyways this is not a dig at TGR. Mike is a great guy and deserve nothing but the best.

Band is very unique, best of luck to them at bamboozle. However when this band first started (right after Michael quit PP) they posted one demo on mysapce that I really like and since then they've taken it down and I cant find it anywhere. Very upsetting
