The band will now have to deal with the Curse of the Rumble, which supposedly dooms winners to a career of Monday-night sets in local bars. Then again, they dealt with it moderately well in last night's finals, when the Curse broke up their set with a rare stage appearance, scoffing at a bible and crucifix before finally being banished with a poster of former Rumble winners 'Til Tuesday.
The wild card finalist, Apollo Sunshine, also put in a very strong set. Baby Strange, on the other hand, wouldn't have been my pick to win their round of the semifinals. Where the heck were The Downbeat 5?
