Danielle Scruggs, Washington, DC, photographer says:
"Really been feeling Laughing Man, a rock/blues band in the DC area especially the song "Gestures". I saw them at a show back in June and even though the venue kind of sucked, they were great."
Mona Martinez shouts out:
"Year of the Dragon's Blunt Force karma. Dirty Walt's Still smokin'. One of the best records for 2009. Also, thought their show at SXSW was great."
