I just received a spiffy new Black Halos autographed CD in the mail. It seems I won a contest or something-or-other. Anyways, the Black Halos are a great band out of Vancouver, Canada and are pretty freaking fantastic live. I recommend them highly. Have a look at some of their posters here: http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?band=2075 . And they aren't even paying me to say this.
The Halos are great, but sadly it looks like they are breaking up. Their guitarist Rich has split to go to LA to play with some other band. Let hope they simply replace him. I've got new Halos poster that I did a while back that I'll scan and submit as soon as I can.
