A week or two ago I was at the Skybar, and saw this band called Magonia. They’re an instrumental 3-piece rock band, and they were really a modern version of the lounge band that you’d expect to be playing in a really smoky, seedy bar–instrumental rock that created a certain atmosphere without resorting to cliche. I really enjoyed them.
And in other news, it looks like Clickers broke up. Oh well.
