boston // i miss you

June 21, 2012 § 1 Comment

I’ve been on a pretty incessant rose-colored-glasses (or not?) Boston kick as of late. Something about planning to move to a new apartment, and realizing we’re all getting older / behaving the same, and looking at pictures of Clarence (he’s my cat) as a kitten in Allston in the arms of my friends, it’s a lot.

I’m pulling back from being a nostalgic loser (someone needs to write the book, though), and just posting more about Boston shows as a way of acting out, so, Internet, I hope you’ll indulge this latest burst of teenage angst.

Really this is all a very dramatic way of telling you there’s a JEFF the Brotherhood show at TT the Bears tonight (I first heard JEFF in my friend Jay from Frogball’s kitchen. See, I’m being ridiculous).

And in the spirit of Boston-love, I ask you to wrap your head around the rest of the line-up (with convenient set-times!)

JEFF the Brotherhood
Uncle Bad Touch

Such a good night. Plus doesn’t TT’s have AC?

boston // pilgrims in boston and what

June 17, 2012 § 1 Comment

Today’s a special day. I have been clicking “yes” on Ex-Magician’s Facebook event invites fooor about… geez… six months now? Keep thinking I’ll somehow apparate myself into Charlie’s Kitchen on a Monday (don’t we all wish that could happen? #wafflefries), but it keeps not happening…

Tonight, though…

It’s happening! Ex-Magicians tape release*** is at WWTA tonight, with…

NO FUN (“loud and ribald and a wonderfully chaotic mixture of everything you like”)
DIG SAFE (“strike a real “groovy” chord with me, like if ash from evil dead stumbled into a teenage stoner comedy and started a band in the 3rd act”)

… And I will finally be there.

Quotes are Jon’s because it’s 9 in the morning and I have to leave in fifteen minutes (and the part where he nails it).

***Added bonus is how much I like this tape. Talented friends, you make my life easy

boston // royal pain

June 15, 2012 § 1 Comment

Here’s your dilemma, Boston, as I see it…

1. Royal Headache at PA’s Lounge

I got to see these dudes Wednesday night in NYC, as my comrades and I were among the way-a-lot of people packed into the Cake Shop basement. I was fully prepared to be underwhelmed but was not expecting the reality (to be completely floored – everything was right). The kind of right that makes you want to go home immediately and revisit the record. Plus there are a bunch of hilarious pictures of my friends (somehow I avoided the lense) over at Brooklyn Vegan

RADIO CONTROL (Somerville, MA)
WHITE PAGES (Cambridge, MA)
GUILTY PARTY (Somerville, MA)

2. Buddy Rock at its FINEST

Bent Shapes (you may remember them as Girlfriends)
Slow Animal (these guys are from NEW JERSEY
Earthquake Party!
Fat Creeps

at WWTA, 7 PM.


I have absolutely no idea which is the right decision.

Where Am I?
