Ran over to at The Aviary Gallery. last Thursday for the Sound on Sight, Photography of Boston Rock show. Lots of very cool work going on there! And the place was PACKED and kept getting more pecked until it was spilling out onto the sidewalk! Richie Parson of Unnatural Axe had 3 great photos: including a fantastic pic of Stiv Bators.I asked him how old he was when that pic was snapped: 18!! It is an amazing photo! How could an 18 year old be thinking of how to frame these great shots? I asked. He said he was inspired by Denise Donahue Rowe who he worked with at Filene's Basement at the time. Denise inspired many of us and it was great to hear that from Richie!
and Speaking of Stiv....that means Dead Boys and that can also mean Cheetah Chrome and he is appearing, along with Mike Hudson of the Pagans and Bob Pfeifer of the Human Switchboard in the Cleveland Confidential Book Tour .... On Thursday April 7th they will be in our area, down in Providence RI at the Knight Memorial Library (275 Elmwood Avenue, Provi.) they will be reading from and discussing their books - A Dead Boy's Tale, Diary of a Punk and University of Strangers! Put this on your calendars NOW!!
And whoa, just heard about this...April 16th a screening of Andy Warhol's film The Velvet Underground in Boston!!! This is being presented by Arts Emerson and should be a fantastic thing to see!!
The Frustrators is a punk rock band where the members are also members of other bands. The most notable is Mike Dirnt from Green Day. They have had two releases with Adeline Records. Thier new EP entitled "Griller" contains a credible version of The Neighborhoods' "Prettiest Girl".
