Machine Go Boom lurks in dark and obscure Cleveland joints like Pat's in the Flats and the little room at the Beachland -- exactly where rockers worth their salt should be. Started on a whim by bored singer-guitarist Mikey Machine, the band kept absorbing other indie-rock notables, most recently Hook Boy's Mike Uva. The Machine has been compared to the Dead Milkmen and the Pixies. And as the band notes on its website, "People seem to like it." That includes us. -ferris
