September 3, 2012

   Here's stuff that's coming up and worthy:

    OK folks this Monday - Sept 3rd, Unnatural Axe will be making their ONLY Boston appearance for 2012 at Radio on September 2nd and to make it even more special Richie Parsons is bringing over a band called Guida....from Rome…here's their song "Number 10"

   I guess those Axe guys never rest coz the very next night Tuesday Sept 4th Tommy White's band The Beachcombovers are at Club Noir at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square - Brother Cleve has been brewing up a scene there and its brilliant; it's 6 to 9 PM, great for the after work crowd Admission is free! Club Noir is located in the Charles Hotel Courtyard and the band will be performing as part of Brother Cleve's Tiki Tuesday series. Here's a video from one of The Combovers latest shows downstairs at the Cantab

   Saturday, September 8th sees the next installment of One Night Band a day-long music experiment in which 40 selected Boston musicians are randomly shuffled into bands of five on a Saturday morning. These newly formed bands must prepare a four-song set (including one cover) to play that night in front of an audience at legendary Cambridge rock club the Middle East. This weekend's roster includes people like Jay Allen, Bob Maloney, Walter Sickert and Alison Murray.

    Friday, September 14 The Woggles do their thing and it should be wild in the small space of The Plough and Stars. Muck and The Mires are also there that night!
And at Radio on the 14th there's a good line up with The 360's, Pop Gun, A Terrible Beauty, Cooling Towers

   Then there's two excellent nights coming up at Radio later in September:
Friday, Sept 21st is the Late Risers' Club 35th Anniversary Party. They have a facebook page LATE RISERS' CLUB FACEBOOK PAGE You have to go there to see what they have listed but even that isn't all they are going to have....if you get my drift ....but they do say it will "feature a one-time-only set from The Shirt Lifters, a band featuring members of Spitzz and The Tampoffs backing an all-star roster of guest vocalists from bands like Unnatural Axe and Bullet Lavolta playing covers of the punk rock classics you've been hearing on the LR C since 1977". ....They also have Cocked n' Loaded doing heavier stuff like Motorhead and Turbo Negro. On the air that week they will be playing one decade of punk each half hour. Downstairs in Moe's Lounge, Artie Friedman will screen old local videos and perhaps a screening of the LRC documentary. Cover charge is only $5...which includes 2 FREE Narragansetts. Must we...can we go on?

    then on Saturday the 22nd there's a killer show celebrating Joan Jett's Birthday with The Dirty Truckers, Tijuana Sweetheart, Gene Dante, The Other Girls and Cradle to the Grave, The Acro-Brats....doing all Joan Jett all night long - excellent!!

   Wednesday Sept 26 - Afghan Wigs at HOB....I love those guys!!

    And Thursday Sept 27, at The Lizard Lounge, Tony Savarino -guitarman extraordinaire- is having a Record Release Party for his new disc: Guitaresque......this CD was produced by Barry Marshall! Sounds like a pretty amazing combo to me! Tony will also have a stellar belly dancer in the house that night as well!

   And into that weekend there's a two night Crash Safely Benefit at The Davis Square Theater (not the Somerville Theater but down the street from it!) Friday 9/28 has The Unholy 3, The Dirty Truckers, The Gentlemen, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents and The Phil Aiken Army.
Saturday 9/29 has The Upper Crust, Sidewalk Driver, TRiPLE THiCK, Thick Shake sand Cotton Candy- that sounds like a totally fun night!! And a worthy cause my friends- help fight MS!! And you can buy your tix here!

   Thee Cuban Heels are at Toad on the 29th's just a short walk from Davis to Porter to check them out too! and its FREE!

   And it looks like Nicole Tammaro is having another book release party... this one's at Radio on Friday October 5th with Razors in the Night, Full Body Anchor and Jason Bennett & The Resistance - only $5 folks!!...

   Joanie Lindstrom went vacationing closer to home than usual...a trip one could duplicate before the season is over...JOANIE's MAINE VACATION.
