The following night SSM will be playing Skull Alley for the last time along with Supertruck and Bu Hao Ting. $5, doors at 8pm. The sets at this show are being recorded for inclusion on an upcoming 7".
And two more reviews of SSM's Screaming Secrets album...
"Just the sort of off-kilter punk rock that made Louisville famous oh-so-long ago. Second Story Man is more tuneful than its predecessors, but the eclectic (and generally bone-breaking) approach to these songs does ring a bell. A fine set from a band that just might have something exceptional going on."

"If The B-52s were a power pop band with loud guitars...they might something like Louisville, Kentucky's Second Story Man. The folks in this band have been around for about eleven years now and during that time they've pretty much remained intact...the only change being that they switched bass players in 2004. Screaming Secrets is the band's third full-length release. Though the band has been around awhile their music still sounds fresh and exciting. The songs are strong and very melodic...and the rhythms drive hard and heavy. Ten fun cuts here including "Want Within the Need," "Quietly," "The Mav," and "Bottom Line."
