The Key Figures, Live at The RTX, 11/27/10


The Key Figures (and Ambition Burning) rocked the house last night at a free afterhours show at The Record and Tape Exchange in Fairfax, Virginia.

(I worked at the original RTX in College Park, Maryland 23 years ago, and that job lead to the gig at my beloved Record Co-Op where I worked with a very good friend who now works at this RTX on a part-time basis!)

These guys have a great very American punk rock sound: equal parts early Cheap Trick and Black Flag.

The band has already recorded a CD with D.C.'s legendary Don Zientara and it's got me wanting to hear more.

For now, check out the band's website:

I shot a couple of minutes of footage last night. I should have shot more but the camera is new to me.
