Part of an ongoing series.

In August, local duo The Pity Party (MySpace) -- previously covered here -- performed at Spaceland (MySpace) in Silver Lake, opening with The Meeting Places (MySpace) for Film School (MySpace). With The Pity Party's M unable to play guitar due to a bicycle accident, and necessity often being the proverbial mother-of-invention, filling in were Jason71 from Eskimohunter (MySpace), Will Etling from The Deadly Syndrome (MySpace), and Hiram Fleites from The Human Value (MySpace).

The Pity Party's Heisenflei described the experiment in her unique manner:

My fucking guitar player broke his fucking finger in two fucking places and now he needs to get fucking surgery and it's going to take him fucking two months to fucking heal and we won't be able to play any fucking shows or even fucking practice for the fucking duration... At least the guys who are taking on guitar duties are totally hot and come totally prepared to practices and are being totally amazing and we've totally bonded and I'm totally inspired to play with more totally rad hotties like totally all the total time.

Flashfoward two months, and Heisenflei and M -- fully mended in both body and spirit -- will perform tonight at the Silverlake Lounge for what is being billed as their "reunion show," opening with The Library (MySpace) for the Portland-based Jaguar Love (MySpace).

Special thanks to The Pity Party, Eskimohunter, The Deadly Syndrome, The Human Value, and Spaceland.
