WattsTwo.jpg - 132.09 K     We figured we go check out the show at Precinct in Union Square Somerville, on Friday night. I like this place! It's small but there are two levels, there's a little area in the back that is a couple stairs up and if it is crowded, as it was for the Gentlemen, then there's a huge mirror to the left of the stage and you can look in the mirror to see the band that way. I got a beer for $3.50 so drinks are reasonably priced and the sounds was excellent...it wasn't blast your ears out loud it was loud but comfortable, I didn't even have to wear ear plugs. The sounds person absolutely knows his stuff I would say. The only problem with Union Square is parking but I think since there ain't much else going on in that area your prowl for a spot shouldn't be too long.
So we caught Watts; they sounded really good and have lots of excellent songs....for example One Below The All Time Low .... And of course John Blout is just (as Boby Bear put it ) "a vision " up there on stage...you just can't stop watching him...that hair -do is part 60's british invasion part glam and part heavy metal...it's this amazing hair style that encompasses all the great looks in music!! And of course he's a beauty and has lots of entertaining moves up there as well. John Lynch is a fantastic drummer and paired with bass player Craig they make an awesome rhythm section. Lead guitarist and singer Dan Kopko is a strong presence up there, an excellent front man!!(and if you'd like another chance to catch them they are playing at the Precinct on Friday Sept 11th) .....The Gentlemen were also great this evening...the place got very crowded for their set since they haven't played for about a year and this was their 10 th anniversary.

    we have a good week coming up with
The Murder at O'Brien's this Thursday Sept 3rd,
and Friday, Sept 4th is an awesome show at Church ...the New Alibis are back after a month or so off and they are sharing the night with Blood Stained Brindle, Yesterday's Heroes, She Rides, Hold the Morning Light

    And Whoa Friday Sept 11th at The Middle East UP is The Angry Samoans along with Dirty Tactics, 007 Hundred Club, The Acro-brats, ....
