Dear Coast,I am writing to give huge props to my fave local band Broken Ohms.I saw them play last night (June 30) at Gus' Pub and it occurred to me just how truly great they are. I'll keep the superlatives to a minimum, but to paraphrase (and respectfully disagree with) their myspace page, they are indie AND metal enough to satisfy those who like both, or only one of the above.We all know that attendance is a real problem for gigs in Halifax even at the best of times, but I was gladdened to see so many people last night. The Ohms deserve to play to ever-increasing numbers of people.I would just finish by saying that if you are a fan of music, and one who wants to see local talent go farther, then scope out Broken Ohms.Oh yeah, Coast? How about a cover for the boys? We've seen countless lesser bands on your front page in the last year, it wouldn't kill you help these guys out.
