Tonight drew more members of the rock community with vocal extraordinaire Mike Patton's (Faith No More, Mr Bungle, Fantomas, Peeping Tom, Tomahawk to name a few) latest offering Mondo Cane: an ensemble including a twenty five piece orchestra performing Italian pop songs of the 1950 and 60s.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Brous EP Launch + Pearls + Domeyko / Gonzalez - FBi Social (18.11.11)

Pearls were unleashing a spectacular wall of noise when I entered the venue. Unfortunately this happened to be the last few minutes of the set so I don't have much I can say.
