    Rocker turned police man turned author Johnny Barnes has just released his third book called Dead on the Internet. This has a series of murders at MIT. His books are great reads for local rockers because he puts in places and names from the scene. His other books are reviewed here...click. He's moving up in the literary world: his books can be bought at Barnes and Noble or Amazon among other places...also his site at WWW.JOHNNYBARNES.COM.

    I happened to be walking down Main Street in Central Square by where The Club used to be and saw a big HOLE. For years the building was there but now its been wiped of the face of the earth. There was talk that the site was contaminated some way and that's why the building stood empty for a few years. After it's years as the Club it was open under the name Nightstage for a while. There were many great shows at The Club including The Ramones and Talking Heads. I loved the set up of that club with the balcony. Back in the day it was either The Rat or The Club that was basically the only places to see punk regularly.

The club, now as hole
