   .....also on the 26th, just down the street at the Middle East (down) is the Lucky Lady Burlesque Show along with Lenny Lashley and friends....should be quite an entertaining event......
    And on Saturday August 27th @ the Dillboy V.F.W. Post in in Davis Square , Cadillac Heart is doing a show with Girl on Top. This show is actually going to be The Rayboy Fernandes Going Away Party!!! He's moving to the land of WKRP...yup Cincinnati.

    Oh YAY!! I'm psyched: Cal Cali has put together a great show for 3PM Sunday the 28th at The Rosebud with The Neats - this time with Jerry Channell, original Neat's bass player joining Eric Martin and Randall Lee Gibson IV and Jack Hickey will be playing lead guitar. This will be a legendary event!!!!
    The band is psyched to get together!!~ They will be performing their first single on the independent Propeller label from 1981, the song, "Six", a swirling, Vox-washed slab of garage rock.for the first time in over twenty years!!!!
    Cal Cali's Jetset continues the third year of "reunion" shows-with some powerpop songs not done since back in the day and new shoegaze psych originals.

    And for you North Shore folks who can't make it there's a show on Sunday at The Black Lobster in Salem Corolla DeVille will be doing an afternoon show..on stage at 4:30!!;

    up north in New Hampshire there's gonna be a killer show comes September 3rd at Milly's Tavern in Manchester, NH

    The Harvard Film Archive is having a film series called American Punk...no Boston punk film is in there but they have covered all the higher profile films...The Decline of Western Civilization, Suburbia, and The Blank Generation. They also have the ultra low buget cheese Desperate Teenage Lovedolls - HARVARD FILM ARCHIVE-AMERICAN PUNK. It goes from September 2 to Sptember 26...and (for those that care) the HFA is in the Carpenter Center the only Le Corbusier building in America.

    And from the Phoenix....some news everyone seems to be talking about....understandably so: Just a few weekends ago, while running back and forth and all over in between the Starlabfest BBQ and Deep Heaven Now's two stages at P.A.'s Lounge and Precinct, we marveled at the vibrancy of Union Square in Somerville. This October, it'll gain even more action within the city's music scene, as the recently shuttered Club Choices on Somerville Avenue re-opens under new ownership as RADIO, a restaurant and live music venue headed up by Rosebud bartender Josh Banville and booked by Boston Band Crush's Ashley Willard. And from Boston Band Crush : Our own Ashley Willard will be acting as the club's booker, and chef Jim Seery (formerly of The Plough & Stars) will be coming on board with a menu of American comfort food... Booking inquires: playatradio@gmail.com" This place sounds like it will be awesome!!

    AND if that isn't enough.....a new record store: Somerville Grooves , opened in Union Square, on August 13th For address and directions click here

    I'm lovin' it!! I still miss the Abbey and how close it was to my own humble abode so this helps the hurt a little.......
