Squirrel Nut Zippers + HUMANWINE @ Paradise Boston 7-18-2008

Late late update.

Natalie and I were very happy to see these guys touring this year. Squirrel Nut Zippers is fun, the Dise is a fun place to see bands (as long as I can stake out my pole early), so it was a no brainer. We got lucky, for this show was greatness.

Pictures, sure

Bosstones and Dropkicks, 7-10-2008

[music | The Breeders - Sinister Foxx]

Fun fun fun. This show was apparently the first ever at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, I hope they do more after this, it was great. The floor they put down was way easier on an old man's knees than concrete or even wood. After jumping around for 3 hours I can still pretty much walk, which is a bonus.

We went to Beth Orton's 7pm show at the MFA, and I can say, finally, a relaxing show :-)

Unqualified Review, couple of pics

Peter Murphy @ The Roxy

Peter Murphy @ The Roxy

[music | Leonard Cohen - Jazz Police]

Ali Eskandarian opened. I have no pictures of him, because I didn't want to get bounced since the place was still pretty empty, but he was a spaz. I especially liked his cohort, whose name I can't find. He looked just like Early Grayce (Brad Pitt) from Kalifornia, and did a good job of engineering the bleeps and bloops.

Q: Are We Not Men?

[music | The Bruisers - Greed]

DEVO came to Boston for the first time in 20 years and rocked the Pavilion. They brought with them Tom Tom Club. The Dork was strong with this show.

Pics!

There aren't that many bands that have been constant through every phase of music I've gone through since I was 12, DEVO and Talking Heads are two. We jumped at the DEVO tickets before I even considered who was opening for them, much like the Win-Win we scored with Squirrel Nut Zippers & HUMANWINE next month.

Fire in Amherst

[music | The The - True Happiness This Way Lies]

I saw the smoke from this fire in Lowell, MA on my way home, about 25 miles away. I wondered why Nashua was burning down and my wife wasn't calling me. Turned out that it was the second fire in a couple of years at Amherst Plaza on 101a.

If you've ever wondered what every emergency vehicle in Hillsborough County looks like all in the same spot, these photos will give you an idea what that would look like.
