No goin' out this week but I want to say
R.I.P. Sebastian Horsley!! I bought his book "Dandy
in the Underworld" a few weeks ago and look forward to going to bed at night
to read more of his unauthorized autobiography and well, be with Sebastian!! He
was influenced by Marc Bolan, The Sex Pistols and wealth and friends with
Nick Cave....witty, debauched and seriously entertaining...and one of the few
to actually tell the truth about The Clash: "Nice middle-class boys who,
of course, had been to de-elocution lessons."
And Sebastian would not want anyone to stop partying so we'll go right into what's up.....this : Thursday July 1at the Middle East
Up you got The Saints, Acrobrats, 007 Hundred Club and Burning
Friday July 2nd is Swinedells FINAL
gig at The Midway and it's a great bill: DJ Easy Ed is
spinning some fine tunes and on stage will be Nick Curran and The Low Lifes
along with the Swinedells. Also as a special added treat: if you
show up early at like 8PM you can get free 50's dance lessons from the
lovely ladies Miss Arinae and Miss Beck
Also on Friday the 2nd is a excellent show over at O'Brien's in Allston:
The Naiheads, The Nose Jobs and Triple Thick....The Nailheads are
from Montreal and say this about themselves: "The
Nailheads' sound and statement is and always will be strictly for those
of you that can't get enough of that tight, stripped down soundin', do-it-yourself,
raw energy fueled Punk Rock that marked its territory in 1977." Well that is
a lot to promise and live up to! ...I'm looking forward to the show.
And on Saturday, the 3rd The Illyrians are playing up on the Nawth Showah (that's north shore for you non-Bostonites) at In A Pig's Eye Pub in Salem, They have it listed as the Neats but in actuality it will be Eric Martin, Randall Gibson, Chris MacLachlan, it'll be nice to hear that gorgeous Eric Martin voice!

Leather, Cocked and Loaded, Tiajuana Sweetheart and Tenafly Vipers - Whew!
