SHANE HINES GALAXY HUT HOOP DEE DO REVIEWGalaxy Hut is the hippest establishment I've entered since Tortilla's on Ponce in Atlanta closed. The vibe in there is vivid, ripe for an indie film setting. I wasn't afraid to grab a couple of Galaxy Hut matchboxes in the hopes some of the cool would rub off on me.

Shane's music is a little more "for the masses" than the clientele is used to, but the band was received well, and they sounded tighter than ever, even without the benefit of the Hut's broken monitors. Their cover of Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" was my favorite of the evening.
