OUR BUSY JUNE
We're gearing up for a lot of activity this month, which is just the way we like it!
If you are in the greater Boston area, we hope you will be able to catch us opening for Down By Law and Doc Hopper at the Middle East Downstairs on Friday, June 14th. I shared a stage with both of those groups more than a few times "back in the day," so this should be a fun little reunion! Plus, we don't get to play the big room at the Middle East all that often, so that's always a treat.
A couple of weeks later -- Saturday, June 29th -- we'll be taking our act "on the road" and returning to Baltimore, MD for INSUBORDINATION FEST 2013. This is our second Insub Fest in a row, and they gave us a sweet time slot this year alongside some terrific bands (including The Mopes, Plow United, The Kepi-rights and Danny Vapid & the Cheats).
The next night we make a rare NYC appearance when we "rock" Union Hall in glamorous Park Slope, Brooklyn, alongside The Power of Love (only Boston's finest and only Huey Lewis and The News cover act ... in addition to being a group that might just feature a familiar face or two).
Can't wait to see everyone! Details are below:

MIX TAPE 1991
I was alive and I waited, waited. I was alive and I waited for this. MIXTAPE is back.
Picture it. 1991. Your 80s-flavored cassingles (Color Me Badd! Bryan Adams! Paula Abdul! C+C Music Factory! Boyz II Men!) sat side by side with CD longboxes (longboxes!) of everything 90s (Nirvana! Soundgarden! Pumpkins! Teenage Fanclub!). Stalwarts like U2, REM, and Metallica put out seminal albums, Lollapalooza was launched, Donnie Wahlberg set his hotel room on fire, and everyone was doing the Bartman. It was kind of a quietly – and weirdly – brilliant year for music.
Featuring the aforementioned music and so much more, as performed by:
- The Field Effect
- The Fatal Flaw
- Joe Turner and the Seven Levels
- and opening mini-sets from The Friends of Mixtape
Saturday, May 11th at Radio
$10, 21+, doors at 8pm, Music at 9pm
Spoiler: No one is doing “More Than Words.” You’re welcome.
