As we've long since determined, bands didn't give up the atrocious masked trend in 2010. And though things have slowed down considerably, Reverb darling Erin Thompson was kind enough to remind me that SBTRKT is not only coming through town this week, but keeping the mask alive.
Side note. I was -- and remain -- a huge fan of Pearly Gate Music's self-titled debut. And I think my affection for the record caused me to overlook the fact that PGM's Zach Tillman sports a mask on the cover of the record. Nobody's perfect.
