Shells Bells     Hey folks there's two things we want you to do …and they are fun so go ahead and do 'em…..
First go to Kitten Koffin Zombies to vote for Shells Bells as December Pin Up Calendar Girl…..she's a winner…..AND she's Lenny Lashley's fabulous wife of 9 years no less!!
OK second thing is go to the Boston Punk Oral History Project and check it out, listen to Katie The Kleaning Lady and Maura ask you for a video with your stories about the old punk scene and then make a video and send it to 'em.
This is such an awesome idea, I wish we had thought of it!! YOU can be a part of the way cool project

This month is a killer month for music here in Boston it's a pretty impressive list of stuff happening....
To start off with, this Wednesday, August 6th, at Great Scott is the great Triple Thick
this Friday August 8th is a not to be missed show at Harpers Ferry; Eddie & The Hot Rods along with The Pinkerton Thugs, Spittz and Death &Taxes!!great show!

but be happy my friends in Boston coz they are in town on Saturday the 10 at The Middle East UP (changed from Down, unless I was confused last week which is quite possible!)
But the Abbey has an awesome triple play this week:
Friday the 8th is the Creepy Crawly Video premier and the Coffin Lids, Chocolat (members of Demons Claws and Los Sexareenos),and the Hospital Rats
And on Saturday the 9th its Eric Martin and the Illyrians, St. Helena, Monique Ortiz And the Black Mossettes who are back after a hiatus of a few months

1) is the Somerville Rock and Roll Yard Sale!! It's an outdoor sale In Union Square Somerville , open to sellers of records, art, crafts, vintage items, etc. Vendor cost is only $25 , the hours are 3-7pm (it may run later if people want)
they are still looking for vendors though space is limited so email 'em if you want to sell stuff . And if you don't want to be a vendor well you'll want to be there as a shopper so save the date!!
2) after that you can go to the Middle East for Magic Christian (members of Blondie, Flaming Groovies, Plimsouls), Muck and The Mires, Parallel Project, Fox Pass
Oh no, I went to Muck's site and saw that the Doreen single is out, that song is so great!! It's gonna stick in my head for a week!! And oh, you can buy it, watch the video etc .. amd for all you record fanatics out there, it is a limited edition, 10 inch vinyl 45 from England, WHEW!!
