[phlipcam video] Protokoll @ Great Scott + Weekend @ the Middle East

Oh sure, there was the beginning of a Rumble going on last night in Cambridge, but somewhere along the way I found the time to catch two phenomenal post-punk performances around town -- noisy San Francisco trio WEEKEND opened for Wire at the Middle East (next door to TTs Rumble'ing) and a reunited PROTOKOLL threw down in Allston, the second of a two-night stand (and shout!) at Great Scott that saw the once-promising Boston band play their first shows in four years. Indeed, we partied like it was 2006. And it felt good.

Here are clips from both. One regret: Not having the ol' Flip ready for Protokoll's closing number, a cover of Misfits' "Hybrid Monents."
