Here's some news for ya:

   You may have heard that Liz Borden was int eh hospital and at home now recuperating but she's got a bit of a slow recvoery ahead of her so there has been a GoFundMe page started for her
   All we know is what has been said on-line: "Our friend Liz Borden is experiencing a health issue which will sideline her for about a month. Working for herself as a musician she will be unable to earn an income while she is recovering. We all know how stressful it is to have a health issue but put not earning your income on top of that and it is cause for worry. We would like for Liz to be able to recover without having to worry about money. Liz has brought so much joy to many of us through her performances for many years in Boston. We are hoping that Boston can show Liz some love! Rock on!” BEST wishes for a speedy recovery Liz!!!

   Looks like another batch of DOT ALE is on sale…they're doing tastings at Morrissey Boulevard Wines and Liquors.

   We are kinda glad to hear that Church now has Punk Rock Mondays...starting this very Monday July 7th with a luanch party! its FREE They are saying: a rotating group of curators, with the goal of having a weekly that represents the diversity of the local punk rock community. The goal for this event is to get people (bands, people interested in helping out, etc) to check out the space and brainstorm with us about the night. BUT WHY a Monday??? Grrrr.
