SIMGE On The Scene: Samantha Louise, Girl, The LeMats and The Jolly Daggers Played The Saint
"What music has done for me and for us, I want to give back to that. Music has always been there for me. If you're getting through a tough situation music can be very cathartic, that's really what I'm drawn towards. Music pulls me in, and that's how I write." - Frank Calabrese of The Lemats

SIMGE On The Scene: Psychiatric Metaphors, The LeMats and Prehistoric Forest Played Happy Mondays
Next up, complete with masks were locals, The LeMats. Taking photos of these guys was a bit on the freaky side, looking at the faces totally broke my concentration.
"The Astronomer" is alt-rock with some prominent lead guitar. The guitar moves in tandem with the vocals in a way that -- and I'm reaching back into the memory bank here, but sometimes music will shake things loose like that -- reminds me of a band like The Church. Remember them?
