War Wizards/The Start (Club Dada): I'm proud to say that the War Wizards' live debut was at a We Shot Jr show back in January. That was definitely a highlight of the three shows we've had, though this past one yielded plenty of new good memories. War Wizards are very harsh in every aspect of their setup, whether it's their vocals, guitar, or electronics. With everything pounding full force at all times, it can be a real challenge to focus on any one thing, and that's why I think they're great. I'd like to add that they were picked apart and criticized pretty badly in a review recently that failed to mention them by name. I know we're anonymous and all, but failing to mention a band's name even in a bad review is to deprive them of the one advantage of such situations: having their name in print. History has proven that bad press can work wonders for a band's image, so if you're going to let them have it, at least give them that. Oh, and The Start is from LA and they make the live music sequences from Hannah Montana sound like The Poison Girls.
