I went with BeatGirl and Michele to T. Max and Des' Brett Milano Roast
, at the Magic Room Saturday night. This was my first time at the Magic
Room and the place is awesome. It's like hanging out at a party in someone's home.
The décor is an eclectic mix of vintage and freaky, it is VERY cool!!!
Comin' out to honor Brett was a decent group of friends, some who knew him before he came to Boston, they reminisced about the days at college when Brett was a writer there as well. Reflecting my own sentiments were a few folks that got up to say "I don't have any 'roasting' to do to Brett but I just wanted to say he is a great and sweet guy." And I must add that Pete Sutton did a fine job of hosting the event.
This is the first year I didn't have to work on Saturday so I could go to Record Store Day. The whole concept has grown and been embraced by more people. I went to Newbury Comics in Braintree to see Watts and the Dirty Truckers.
There were a good amount of people there, a huge amount for a record store. People were in a good mood and sales were brisk. From the stories it sounded like there were people there all day; early to get the freebies and later to hear the groups. I left after 6pm and there were still a good amount of people left.
Because of the venue it was a different sound coming at you. It sounded more like a band rehearsal room than a club, pretty neat actually.
This is a good idea to give record stores a boost but that they need the boost is not good. When ever I go on a trip I look up the local record stores and lots of you do too (like we see in Joanie Lindstrom's vacation pictures on this site). I hate to think of the day when that will not be possible.
