Gloriously rising from the ashes of one of my favorite unsung bands of all-time One Star Hotel, the philly outfit The Swimmers finally brought their straight-ahead pop to the wonderfully dirty Garfield Artworks. I was really surprised at the turn-out. There were maybe twenty something attendees present when I can remember three people waiting for Steve's former band to play The Quiet Storm a few scant years earlier. The band sounded great and even though I was looking forward to catch up with bass player/band artist in resident Rick, Tony made up for it with his playing and all around laid-back attitude.
