"The Secret's Out" blared the headline, as both the Missoulian and the Independent covered Secret Powers, last week. Saturday night, the band held their CD release party in the Palace. The Palace is a comfy basement pool room, under the Badlander. Well, actually it is under the Golden Rose, but let's not quibble. It filled quickly with the party spirit, as the featured band took the stage.
The flowers made it look like Shmedly was playing a coffin.
I don't know why the drummer was wearing that wig, and I also can't grasp the symbolism of Shmedly in a night gown. It was obvious who was handling sound, and he kept the system humming.
These guys cook. It's a gentle symmetry I've missed, since GNP left town. The flickr archive has images from previous performances by Secret Powers.
