Hey folks I have been busy with Somerville Open Studios so not too many interesting tales to tell here.
Tom Hauck who used to play guitar for the Atlantics has a new CD out. It's called PISTONHEAD and is a companion piece to his book of the same name. It sounds good and that's no surprise because he has John Lynch on drums and Tony Goddess on bass. You can get more info on Tom's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/TomHauckMusic.
We had an inkling and now the Phoenix had a story confirming that Looney Tunes near Berklee is closing. And how cool it's going to move in along with the Studio 54 space on Harvard Ave? Allston rock city continues to grow.
It's nice to see Jeff and Jane Hudson continuing to do some gigs out in western Mass. Their gig at the Magic Room was so much fun.
