hey we tried to get into Precinct this Saturday to catch The Young
Tremors CD Release Party with Watts and The Dirty Truckers but as we approached
what do we see but A WAITING LINE!!! Damn!!! They were filled to capacity and
the line was long and the temps were cold so we left...went to the old stand by
the Middle East up and they were sold out!!! We should have gone to Johnny D's to catch Thee Cuban Heels and Rock Bottom but we spaced that out...
typical of we here at the BGN..uh, duh - but that's what makes us so damned lovable right???..anyway I posted on Facebook that I was frustrated coz we couldn't
get in and Laura M commented "there are too many good shows happening in tiny venues that sell out, whereas all the crap music
gets to play in the large venues. Go figure!"...yup! In agreement Laura, I've said it before...the bigger venues have all the crap and now we're
getting shut out? that sucks big time! Anyway I hear It was an excellent show and I am sure it was.
We're into March now folks! ....hopefully winter will be over soon.....to keep us going though there's lots to look forward to.....
For all of us that could not get into Precinct for the Young Tremors CD
Release Party they are playing at The Midway every Friday on March: this
