    Bunratty's Reunion.... will be on Sunday afternoon, July 19 at the Wonder Bar (formerly BUNRATTY'S!!!!) in Allston. Music starts at 2PM and here's the latest from AJ Wachtel: the Bristols are performing for the first time in 9 years. Their versions of Aerosmith's Seasons of Wither is their only song they have ever recorded. They will be going on at about 4PM. Black Number Nine is also performing for the first time in many moons. this is Charlie Leger's band. Charlie used to be in Unattached and the Fighting Cocks. I think they will also "back up" Nikki Stone and Des from The Boston Brats for a few songs. Alizon Lissance x from Girls Night Out and now in the Lovedogs will be performing as will Jody Sandwich. And Marky Mark's old friend Jada Tringale will also be live and onstage at Bunratty's on Sunday afternoon July 19. this should be a pretty cool show

The Memphis Rockabilly Band at the Randolph AmVets - July 3
   I saw this gig posted by Joe Coughlin on the Noise Board. Not the usual club venue but it was pretty nice. Free admission and cheep booze for starters and a nice low key crowd finally my age for a follow up.
    The band is all experienced players who have it down pat. The guitarist did it all - rock, country bends and double stop runs, chicken picking, Duane Eddy style and then picks up a sax and blows a solid lead! The other guitarist also plays piano and the bass player used an electric and stand up bass.
   They play with a quiet authority and little fuss, nothing between them and the music, no big dress up or tattoo fetish.
   This was a neat night of rockin' in the suburbs. Check out The Memphis Rockabilly Band if you get a chance.

   And hey check this out: The Crybabies return to the stage at The Midway Café Friday July 31st and they have a new line-up: Artie Sneiderman- Lead vocals, Steve Aquino - Guitar, Danny McCormack - Guitar, background vocals, Kevin Mahoney (from Lucky 57 and Diamond Platinum Rings)on Bass, and Richee Johnson- drums.....don't miss 'em!!
    Thursday August 6th at The Cantab Club Bohemia it's the Frank Strom's Birthday Bash!!!! This party starts early with Corolla DeVille on at 8PM, then Hotrod Fury, , Black Mosettes and the Sprained Ankles
    And of course coming up Friday, August 7th, at Church is Faster & Louder that's Richie "Swinging Dick" Parsons - vocals, "Fritz the Boss" Erickson - guitar, Johnny "Top 20" Black - guitar, Lee "The Lawman" Harrington - bass and "Johnny Rock" Lynch - drums
They will play the entire Bloodbrothers album by the Dictators and a few more 'Tators tunes.

    And in August, the 21st, At The Middle East UP to be exact it is the return of THE MARVELS!!! (here's their MySpace site) , Along with Dirty Truckers, Vagiant and Pulp 45....that is a most awesome show my friends and only to be equaled by....,
