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....
    Saturday, Sept 19th, The Marvels are playing again at The Baseball Tavern over in The Fenway along with Razors in the Night and The Sprained Ankles...excellent show!
    Then on Sunday September 20th at 1PM - Harper's Ferry: another awesome show with The Ducky Boys, Everybody Out, Confront, Have Nots, Burning Streets....
And at The Cantab on Sat Sept 26 it is Neon Nite (as in Nancy!) with The Joe Harvard Band, My Own Worst Enemy, Fox Pass and The Varmints...

And here is a very special event....
    on Sunday 9/27 at 8pm at Church there is a Lou Miami "Reunion" Rootoo Family Benefit...playing will be James Straight and The Kozmetics (JS used to be in James Straight and The Beaureaucrats and was a good friend of Lou Miami's) the band will include former members of Lou Miami's bands, they'll be doing Lou songs...and man did he writer 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......
