We wanted to check out The Rosebud with Jordan
Valentine in it one last time and man what a night last Friday was!
It was the Township CD Release and Jordan Valentine singing with Brown Boot.
Well, we were pretty much clueless...I have to admit....I mean how could we have known,.
We lived through (or should I say suffered through) classic rock in the 70's and
threw ourselves madly into punk because of it but here it is...a resurgence of the
stuff ( it's all riff rock with tandem leads a la Allman Brothers and of course - cowbell action.) ....with bands like Brown
Boot and Township
... but I will be the first one to say this was an excellent gig!! These
bands were fun and commanding and talented!!!
Township are excellent!!! I am a
huge fan of John the bass player (who is also in Spitzz) and he
is just one hell of a bass player and awesome to watch too...the lead singer despite
his(what should be illegal amount of) facial hair had and great voice and was
a fantastic front man...I was there and present and enjoying it rather than feeling
like the minutes were dragging by....if you are anywhere near into this kind of
stuff visit Township's site and buy their new CD and check 'em out at their next gig!!!
This Monday. MArch 7th, we got a pleasant alternative available at
The Middle East Corner with "Vinyl
Solution" Blood Spit PUNK DJ Nite" with Dj Skitskrieg (spinning all
Foreign Punk) DJ Space Cat - (Spinning
Punk, Hardcore, Oi!,77,82 etc) and as they say go early for din din and
stay to pogo!! (I hope they move some tables out of the way for that!!) ...sounds
like a good way to start out the week.......you can listen to music from real vinyl...psst,
hiss, pop and scratch and all!!....and there's no cover!!...
Here is it her final weekend .....Jordan Valentine is retiring from her awesome DJ position (and booking the club too) at The Rosebud Diner and we suggest you get your butt over to the Rosebud and spend a Friday night listening to some awesome music spun by Miss Valentine and maybe dance your ass off too!!, her last night is February 27th....so get over there
to bid Jordan bye bye from the Rosebud....
Oh but there's SO many good choices for this last weekend of Feb!!! besides the Rosebud…
This Saturday 2/27, you can go to Johnny D's in Davis
Square, there's Rock Bottom and Thee Cuban
Heels.…just in case all that talk about 70's music got you craving…
…coz…. Rock Bottom came about when a bunch
of well known Boston rockers (from bands the Upper
Crust, the Baggs, Ross Phasor, and other bands) started playing their
favorite 70 s covers, strictly for kicks. Fortunately, they didn't know when
to quit and you'll never hear better renditions of guilty pleasure classics
by Kansas, Billy Squire, Styx, and Led Zeppelin. Setting off the evenings
fireworks, Downbeat 5/DMZ guitarist, JJ Rassler,
and his hot new quartet, Thee Cuban Heels,
churn out dirty rock 'n soul, and greasy R&B. Comes with two side dishes, country,
and doo-wop...friends this is not for the squeamish. OH! Sounds like a good
And there is an fun show at Precinct on
Saturday, Feb 27: The Young Tremors, The Dirty
Truckers, Memphis59 and Watts ,,,,,yeah!! and it is the Young
Tremors CD Release party so come on down and help them celebrate "Very Nice,
and you can catch Jon Macey with some friends
like Sal Baglio in a band called
The Bittersweets at The Cantab on
Feb 27th as well
