Well I guess we gotta say it...he was not a good friend of mine, but he died...RIP
Jim Carroll...I personally was not a fan of Basketball Diaries but
many many punks were.
And I also gotta say RIP Patrick Swayze....a very cool guy...I love it
when guys have the cajones to be macho yet dance better than anyone and act
in movies as a drag queen
OK...so on to brighter things...whew.....
Awesome weekend for music here in Boston: This Thursday is Juliette Lewis
at the Middle East down...I think I heard a song or two by her before
and it was pretty lame but she has sure been in some fab films and done an awesome
job acting in them so she deserves a listen and a lot of respect as far as I'm
concerned!!...and I am damned sure she's gonna put on an excellent show!!!...
Friday the 18th you can find The Swinedells (on at 9PM so get
there early) , Barrence Whitfield and The Raging Teens at TT
The Bear's in Central Sq Cambridge....

Tavern over in The Fenway along with Razors in the Night and The
Sprained Ankles...excellent show!

Boys, Everybody Out, Confront, Have Nots, Burning Streets....

"Reunion" Rootoo Family Benefit...playing will be James Straight

some excellent ones!!! "Throw me up a flight of stairs, throw me down a flight
of stairs...." also on the bill will be Girl On Top...and From Karen
Di Biassi we hear: " Lou Miami came to me for voice lessons around 1984
and we became close friends. After the Kozmetix broke up Jack Rootoo (guitarist)
joined Girl On Top and played with us for fifteen years. Both have since passed
away:-( They are missed. Please come and support them." ...the word is that
Jack Rootoo's family is having a very difficult time and need help so
please come out and give some support.......it's $10 at the door......
