Hey guys, this weekend I attended the Scooter Rally at Union Square to
see the Prime Movers play and check out some cool scooters...there was a
decent turn out, lots of scooters and other than The Acklands and The Movers the
only person I saw that I knew was Tim Kelly of the Late Risers Club..it
was a cool night though......earlier on Saturday I had a yard sale and Chrissie, I
mean um Ivanah Rock from the Killer Abs happened buy and purchased a most
lovely teapot for $2.00...yeah yeah....
Now we've all heard about the Abbey and its financial troubles so you know ya gotta get on over there a least for a couple nights in the next week so check out Abbey site for a list of shows
...and my picks are: well actually it looks like there's an excellent t reason to go every night!!
Check it out: right off the bat, this Monday: The Tampoffs and The Sprained Ankles!!...then, Tuesday night is an awesome line up with The Alrighters, The Spoilers and The Classic Ruins and Girl on Top....Wednesday is Coffin Lids, Muck and The Mires, Watts...then The Swindells among others are there Thursday....Friday (9/19) is The Konks ...
.and OH!!! A reason to get here EARLY on Saturday: Buried In Leather on the Pub Stage!!!!...
OK- that's gonna be worth every penny of your $12 right there I bet ya,
but then you also get the Throwaways, The Acrobats and The Curses on Saturday night too...whew!!...
then next week Red Invasion headlines on Friday night, Sept 26th along with Doggfight US, Insult and Fake Boys, excellent!!!
I have to say I can quite understand how a bar with a LOAD of beer and liquor swilling drunks and music fans shellin' o ut dough every night of the week can end up in such serious debt...but OK, whatever...I love the Abbey!! Maybe better management? Maybe better bands, like the beginning days when you wanted to be there every single night of the week?... whatever, I still Love the Abbey!!! It's an awesome club and we need it!!!! So get your butt over there and support the place!!! PLEEEZ!!!
But I also have to mention this : a guaranteed excellent show for Friday Sept 19:
Rocky Velvet at The Plough & Stars on Friday Sept 19th
…check these guys out, they are really really great!!! they are a good time and are wild crazy and FUN rock-a-billy!!
and then Saturday (after you give the Abbey $12 and see Buried In Leather) you can also head over to Church for The Bags!! And help celebrate the release of The Bags '89…..
And here's some really big news:
DMZ Reunion !!!!!
at Church on Thursday October 23rd with Red Invasion and The New Frustrations!!!!
Oh oh and watch out, The Neighborhoods and The Figgs at Church November
….well ok my friends…until next time…and please do send along a little message to make my day…. ML
