Review in Labotomy Magazine #3 (1-20-78: Party at the Screamers house): http://www.synthpunk.org/screamers/1-20-78labrev.html: “FARTY REVIEW: TOMATA & CHLOE’S WILD SOIREE, JAN.20, WILTON HILTON”: “Heard about those swingin’ parties; have ya? This was no exception! The place was loaded with loaded ‘personalities’ … Tomata served ice-cream, potato salad, and p-nut butter sandwhiches. The decor was charming, too. Streamers fashioned from the yellow-pages, making the place look like the cocoanut grove in it’s hey-day. Very rowdy sphaghetti fight in the kitchen. Damages estimated at: $78,000,060.54…” -Pleasant Geham

  1. I believe everything composed made a great deal of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you added a little information?

    I ain’t saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention?

    I mean Alternative | HouseShowsZine is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to get people interested. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

  2. It is the best time to make some plans for
    the future and it is
    time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read more things about it!
