Chris Parcellin and Lenny Scollata have just released a new trailer for their much awaited doc Boys From Nowhere...I am telling you I cannot wait for this film to be out...it will be AWESOME!!!! Like 'em on (that awful) Facebook, go to their website and watch the trailer on You Tube!
There is just so much happening in the weeks ahead!! Friday the 9th at The Beachcomber in Quincy they're getting ready for ST. Patty's Day early with a Big Blowout show featuring Big Bad Bollocks, the Beantown Boozehounds, Drunk Robb & The Shots and Jesse Ahern & The Ramblin Souls
what to do, what to do ......there's some really great shows this night...
Jeff and Jane Hudson at the Magic Room!!! ..And here's the lowdown on the show they are the only act that night and they are playing a 55 minute set starting at 9 PM they will be screening some 80's music videos (Soft Cell, Kraftwerk, etc.) around the set. This show is celebrating the 30 year anniversary of their album Flesh so they are doing 11 songs from that release as well as two new numbers recently released on Electric Voice Records out of Halifax. Check out their site: Jeff and Jane it has all their info and links to everything!! So you can catch Jeff and Jane and still make it over to Church or Radio or any place you like!!. Tickets are on sale at Brown Paper Ticket too....
Over at Radio in Union Sq Somerville there's the 1st show of an ongoing acoustic, Nashville style, "in the round" series. The idea is that songwriters from various musical genres will rotate all evening, performing 3-song mini sets in solo, duo or trio format. This will take place at the happening new Moe's Lounge in the cozy downstairs room . Songwriters performing on the 10th will be-Tad Overbaugh w/ Bruce Freisinger (Tad Overbaugh & The Late Arrivals), Tom Baker w/Evan Shore (The Dirty Truckers, Muck & The Mires), John Powhida (John Powhida International Airport, The Rudds) , Jay Allen (Jay Allen & The Archcriminals) and Scott Ricciuti (Scott Ricciuti & Pistol Whipped, Huck)
The of course the show we've all been waiting for at Church there's Lyres, Nervous Eaters, Satin Kittens and Port Charles Quintet with Boston's best drummer Dennis McCarthy coming up from Pittsburgh for the show!!- I believe it will be the last PCQ show...and that's Kim Ackland's birthday weekend so wish her an excellent one!!
And then its St Patty's day weekend...a Saturday no less! So there's
lots to do
Friday the 16th at Radio is a good show with one of our fave bands The Acrobrats......along with Vapid Descent and Goddamn Draculas...
There are two good nights over at Church: on Friday the 16th is Jason Bennett, The Cretins, Riki Rocksteady & The Arraignment, CuDubh, and The Beantown Boozehounds...and as a special added attraction everybody that pays to get in (or buys a ticket in advance) will get a ticket stub for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Cock Sparrer show on May 19th. We will be drawing the winner before the Beantown Boozehounds set. The winner must be present to win the tickets!!....and on St Patrick's Day, Saturday, March 17th is The Swaggerin' Growlers, The Pinkerton Thugs, Refuse Resist, Dead Aces and The Old Edison
Over at Club Bohemia at The Cantab there a Paddy's Day Celebration with Cadillac Heart, Foxpass, The Pilgrims and Death Paeso
Store 54 has been consistently hosting some pretty way cool events and here's another one on Saturday, March 24th: The New Frustrations and Darling Pet Monkey will be playing there - show start s at 9PM...that definitely promises to be a good show!.
On April 21st James Straight and the Wide Stance with Cadillac Heart will be at The Magic Room - and this has become a rather special show because Third Rail's Richard Nolan will be performing with Cadillac Heart that night. And as a special added attraction Frank Rowe will be doing one of his solo acoustic sets to start the evening.
And on Monday April 17th Bad Brains are at The Paradise…they have a new album out and are touring to promote it...
And people here's an event you must go to....BC60....Boston's most devoted scenester Bob Colby celebrates his 60th birthday at TT's on Sunday August 12th...so mark your calendars now for this very special event we should All be there to celebrate Bob...beside the list of bands performing is just crazy!!! Sheperdess, Classic Ruins, The Downbeat 5, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, Mary Lou Lord, Nina Violet, Kenne Highland, Moose & The Mudbugs...and lots lots more!!! And really I think if the Real Kids are ever going to perform it should be at this event!!
Don't forget about the Kickstarter Project starting this Saturday on March 10th for the club called The Icepick. an historical PUNK club in Muskegon, MI that's been around for over 25 years...think The Rat , CBGB's all the
other awesome places we've lost over time that were like home to us all.
Well the owner is planning on selling the place and the punks want to keep it going ( an honorable choice!) so they are starting a Kickstart Project on March 10th to get up the money to buy The Icepick at a special price and keep it going as a Punk Rock venue...if you love punk and honor all its memories...you maybe will think of going to the page and donating some dough for this good cause. We here at the BGN wish them all the luck in the world on this project!!!
