Well we here at the BGN were out and about this weekend: Blowfish went to
the Middle East to see The New Collisions and The Luxury.
Blowfish says: The New Collisions were New Wave deja vu. The singer Sarah Guild was ultra cute. Do we want to hear New Wave in 2009? I don't know but if anyone does this is band for you. It was a kick seeing Greg Hawkes up there for a few songs including one Cars song. Rumble winners The Luxury were very stong. Nice playing all around and they added horns and two violins at different times to good effect. They had some songs that had lots of mood to them without being slow and maudlin, that's a nice groove to be in.
On a little birthday outing with BeatGirl and Kim Ackland we went to Allston to Horror Business , at 77 Harvard Ave, on Saturday to check out their Mode Merr store take-over/trunk show. Horror Business is owned by Troy who fronts Razors In The Night..... So now I understand the big punk fashion statements being made by the guys in his band! Troy is right on top of it and is doing an excellent job! Also you will find a very good local music section in the back of the store too! While there we ran into Nancy Neon who had just bought a cute black dress, she was having a grand old time! So next time you are in Allston, stop by at Horror Business and say hello to Troy!!
