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

Lashley & Friends and Brunt of It at Harpers Ferry
And Whoa Friday Sept 11th at The Middle East UP is The Angry Samoans
along with Dirty Tactics, 007 Hundred Club, The Acro-brats, ....
And again a great show at Precinct on Sept 12th with Muck and The
Mires and THE ODDS ...yes you read it right, The Odds...their
first show in 25 years as a matter of fact...DMZ broke up they split
into two bands...The Lyres and The Odds...this is a do not miss show!!
And note that Muck is on at 10, the Odds at 12 and Muck again at Midnight.
