OK…Halloween was a fun night at The Cantab…and there were some amazing
costumes out there. Wigs seemed to be the big thing this year. Amy Winehouse wig,
Marie Antoinette wig, a couple different kinds of Poison Ivy wigs, afro wigs,
the list goes on and on.
So now that's Halloween is over we are looking into November and speaking of shows in November: THIS Saturday Nov 7th (note date correction!!!) The Marvels are at Church with The Curses, The Swindells and Muck & The Mires....I mean come on...that's a show NOT to be missed!!
Then to make it a truly incredible weekend I am going to Sleep
No More before Church!
…please join us!!! This show IS an incredible
experience and one you aren't likely to find in Boston again soon. Yes, read
up a bit about Macbeth if you like, to help you understand the plot and
know you will be leaving the introductory elevator on one of the 4 floors (and
know you have to check out all 4 floors) it's playing until December or January
so if you can't make it November 7th go another time!!…
But this is a big weekend with lots of good stuff going on so we also have an important event: The Plough & Stars 40th Anniversary Celebration on Nov 6th, 7th and 8th….including The Family Jewels and Andrea Gillis on Friday 11/6, Angeline and Monique Ortiz on Saturday the 7th and The Konks, Triple Thick and The Raging Teens on Sunday the 8th…please note: The Saturday and Sunday shows are afternoon shows starting at 4PM!!
And happy birthday Plough!! And a congrats to Jim Seery for doing such a great job there these days!

and I just got word of a cool Rock T shirt site called Electric T Shirts I particularly like that Joy Division T! …
And we heard from What Cheer Antiques + Vintage in Wayland Square in Providence, RI and they have another Rock'n'Roll Yard Sale comin' up: here's what they said "our shop is about to Celebrate our 10th Anniversary and throughout the rest of the year we'll be hosting some fun events to commemorate this milestone. The first one will be on November 6th and 7th and it's one of our Rock And Roll Yard Sale events which we've done for the past 7 years in both Providence and Somerville, Mass. (and also in conjunction with Foo-Fest and the indieArts Fest) and is the same event we've done for years now with lots of sellers offering Vinyl Records and other Music Related Stuff plus DIY Handmade Crafts but for the first time, this is going to be a 2-Day Event at a New Location in Downtown Providence": so go check 'em out and see what they got! Blowfish loves it down there and will be going to see what he can find as well!
