As a few of you know, we were pleased to host a night with The Gaslamp Killer, live in his physical being @ The Drake Underground. Part of a late night series of soirées during TIFF, this was in part a return to Toronto as well as a reintroduction, to a raucous crowd.
After brilliant sets by Ultragamma and yours truly, your man GLK took the stage - to the stupefaction and jubilation to the few hundreds who braved through a Sunday night until the wee hrs.
Rolling an old silent film as a back drop, The Gaslamp Killer displayed the exothermic performance that has made him one of the stalwarts of the LA scene, and the darling of EU as well.
Without getting into the nitty of gritty of the night, watching and hearing him rawk was hella entertaining, as he showed love. And the fans showed it right back. Cats bought merch and thanked him post show, and be assured we will have him back.
Anyhow, for those who were there - glad you came. For those who missed out, i'll see you on the rebound - and we'll do our best to have it on a true weekend night. You'll need the time to recoup.
So in a recap. here are some a/v goodies.

Here's a short vid of the night, to give you a vibe of the event.
To boot, for all you iPhone/iPod Touch users, i've made the above file downloadable so you can take it witcha - in full stereo. Say wrd. You can now watch it on the subway, in class, show your friends who he is, and remember to make it out on the next run.
You can get that here.
And for those who missed out, you need to get to the next show.... and now you know. You'll get to hear the madness for yourself.
Don't say I didn't love you.
Shouts to The Gaslamp Killer for coming down and good look on the 10" (pause), shouts to DMoney, Ultragamma, Andre and the good ppl @ The Drake and all the folks who came thru.
Catch us on the rebound.
