Los Flaming Warthogs

Not the greatest name, but tonight was office band Los Flaming Warthogs' debut performance in a tiny bar in Condesa. Couple of managers, three teachers and a ringer drummer. It was a short set, but they weren't bad at all. A mixture of covers - Psycho Killer, Teenage Kicks and an interesting version of While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night set to the tune of The House of the Rising Sun - plus two or three self-penned songs. 
We brought A&N along - their first ever gig. I think I was 15 before I saw anyone live. They were slightly concerned about the prospect of drink, drugs, debauchery and a deafening din, but it was a very well-behaved crowd. 
The Warthogs plan to go into the studio next year but I don't think they'll be giving up their day jobs. And they should change their name.
