So, the Boys From
Nowhere documentary is comin' along….-Here's the latest from the BFN guys:
"On Wednesday the BFN crew trucked on down to NYC for a funny, entertaining
interview with actor/author/comedian Denis Leary about his memories of
the Boston punk scene of the '70s. Denis talked about the Real Kids, DMZ,
Lyres, Willie Loco, the Neighborhoods, the Nervous Eaters and more-including
stealing the Clash's beer at the Orpheum, with Eaters' guitarist Jonathan Paley.
Huge thanks to Denis, Sawyer Williams at Apostle Films, Jonathan Paley
for helping to set it up, and Roger Brodeur for getting us there."..... but hey you
guys on the crew: wrap it up already everyone wants to see this doc!!!
Also we want to say CONGRATULATIONS are in order for The Midnight Creeps' Jennifer LaHurricane and The Sleazies' Jami Sleaze as wedding bells chimed for this couple just recently!!
Here's stuff that's coming up and worthy:
Friday, September 14 is a busy night!!
The Woggles do their thing -and it should be wild- in the small space
of The Plough and Stars. Muck and The Mires are also there that
And at Radio on the 14th there's a good line up with The 360's, Pop
Gun, A Terrible Beauty, Cooling Towers
At The Rosebud there's Cal Cali's New Experience for covers
from your life along with Danny O'Halloran's band The Black Cheer
and Liz Borden Band and Axemunkee
And wow here's one awesome show this Saturday Sept 15 at Great Scott's

a reunion of The Alrighters!! Also DJ Easy Ed spins the platters all night long!
AND a new last minute addition to this show: Rob "DEWITT DOES CASH" DeWitt has graciously agreed
to appear onstage at this event. We hear he will duet with the late great Johnny Cash via Hologram!!!
And I don't know what's going on but there must have been a shake up at The
Cantab's Club Bohemia….there are some very interesting shows booked there
for the near future including Friday 9/14 with Triple Thick, The Thick
Shakes , Jack of Hearts and The Monsieurs.
Then there's two excellent nights coming up at Radio later in September:
Friday, Sept 21st is the WMBR 35th Anniversary Party There will be a
backing band with various singers from around town covering bands like the Diodes,
Stiff Little Fingers, The Boys, etc. plus Cocked n' Loaded doing heavier
stuff like Motorhead and Turbo Negro. Downstairs in Moe's Lounge, Artie Friedman
will screen old local videos and perhaps a screening of the LRC documentary.
Cover charge is only $5! On the air that week they will be playing one decade
of punk each half hour. You can even buy
tickets in advance, which might actually be needed. When was the last time
you paid $5 for a show? 1977 when this radio program started probably. Feel
free to post the flyer and spread the word.
then on Saturday the 22nd there's a killer show celebrating Joan
Jett's Birthday with The Dirty Truckers, Tijuana Sweetheart, Gene Dante,
The Other Girls and Cradle to the Grave, The Acro-Brats….doing all Joan
