Hey folks, first I gotta say I was wrong about who was gone from Red Invasion...it's Iain...bye bye Iain, I'll miss your interesting hair-dos!......so glad Ryan is still with the band...I hear they are going on as a three piece...so check out the new Red Invasion next time 'round~and as a matter of fact they are doing an early show at 1PM on Sunday November 29th at the Middle East UP along with The Egos, The Spoilers, and the Murder
It was an email from Cheryle Crane (Happy Birthday!!) that lead me to The Colonel's 1st Annual Super Dooper Guitar Party taking place in Pawtucket.. It promised displays of guitars along with live acts. That's a combo I couldn't resist and it did deliver.
It was a three day affair, I took in Saturday afternoon. There were some unique guitars to look at and Susquehannah Industrial Tool and Die were playing real old style rockabilly.
The only punker I recognized was Jami from the Midnight Creeps and the Sleazies. I assumed he wasn't getting too much out of the rockabilly band but he pointed out that he does the Scotty Moore part in an Elvis tribute band every now and then. You never know. Jami also has a plentiful collection of guitars.
Downstairs there were some clinics that I didn't get to but that's just another great idea of this guitar oriented festival.
Some cool posters caught my eye. They were done by Jerry Clayworth from San Antonio. He has great classic rock stlye along with great taste in music. If you want him to do a poster or some CD art you can contact him at www.atomicjukebox.com/.
This is the first year for this festival and the Colonel promises another one next year.
While I was in Pawtucket ,a neat looking mill town, I shot over to Luke's Record Exchange. He was having his 30th Anniversary celebration. Earlier he received a plaque from the city. Luke's is a great source of rock vinyl and CD's at great prices. I've been going there for close to 30 years myself.
