new trailer is almost ready and will be up sometime before month's end. SO keep
checking their FB page for the new trailer..of course we'll tell you when it's
The benefit concert of the An American Revolution film
about WBCN at the House of Blues went on for four hours!! Judging
from the clips and material they've uncovered that should be an amazing film
for us locals and sixties music fans.
Here's a clip of the Fools
and then Willie Loco.
On the visual side there are some paintings by Woody Giessmann
ex-Del Fuegos being shown in Allston at the Artful Edge Gallery,
55 Harvard Ave. The show is called Faces in Rock and Other Compositions.
He has some portraits of some Rolling Stones but I think he should paint
up some local musicians- check
out his work .
All the shows scheduled for the new Harvard Square club Sinclair are
being moved because its scheduled opening has been delayed because they are
still renovating…that's what we hear….I wonder if they'll have it ready for
Mission of Burma in January???
