Hey folks, another week gone by and this week we made it out to see some music
and it was really a great night of bands. We headed on down to the Baseball
Tavern on Saturday to see The Sprained Ankles, Razors in the Night
and The Marvels....
excellent bill and excellent show!!!
The Sprained Ankles are fun to watch...the lead singer is a riot...in
some ways he reminds me of Joey Boy from Red Invasion, he's got this natural
super energy and he's very animated up there. He definitely has his very own moves
down and he's just great to watch. Allen Lavesque is now in the band playing
bass and they sounded quite good Saturday night......next up was Razors in
the Night...well these guys must be keeping Hootenany in Harvard Sq in
business...they are perfectly punk in their appearance...ALL the right accoutrements...I
have seen Todd out at many shows and he is always dressed in ultra punk
regalia...but I don't' doubt their authenticity either....and frankly I am glad
there are so many people out there today keeping the punk thing alive....anyway
Razors are straight ahead hardcore punk...fast furious but they also seemed to
be very good natured and cool guys...my only complaint...please guys have someone
other than Ian sing back up...the guy sings worse than I do and that is
pretty bad......but all in all it was an excellent set, TONS of energy and feeling!!
Definitely a good band!...now, next up was The Marvels...yup,they are now
more my favorite Boston band than ever before!!! Wooo, something happened
while they were broken up because they were tighter and more energized than ever...wow!!!
amazing set really...Staffy - what can I say, as awesome as ever (I just
wish someone would give him some fashion advice...like "Staffy, wear tighter pants
maybe so they aren't falling down off your ass!" ) ...Michele and Jesse...what
a freaking rhythm section, I mean they were pounding it OUT!!! These guys sound
better than EVER!!!! Their next show is in November with Muck and The Mires
and if you haven't' seen them this time around you just HAVE to go see them!!!
I mean , They blew the fuses in the club they during their set and they even got
the audience demanding an encore!! ....And as Eric Law said when they finished
their last song "Now THAT's rock and roll!" ...YUP!....
Now here'S what coming up....... This Saturday Sept 26th is Padded
Hell Penis Fly Trap and The Egos at O'Brien's....hmmm,

Di Biassi we hear: " Lou Miami came to me for voice lessons around 1984

joined Girl On Top and played with us for fifteen years. Both have since passed
away:-( They are missed. Please come and support them." ...the word is that
