Weekend Ramblings

Posted By on Fri, Jul 25, 2008 at 1:44 PM

It never fails. Every weekend I have to be out of town, there's a whole bunch of stuff going on that I would much rather stay home to do. Like what, you ask? Actually, in this case almost anything. But I digress.

For starters, there's the Daryl Rabidoux benefit tonight at Metronome — featuring Daryl! I've already spilled a fair amount of ink on this show, so I won't waste your time covering the same ground. However, I've been asked by a certain concerned party to report that The Jazz Gu . . . er, The Vanderpolls are actually going by the new name of The MaxFranks. I'm still rooting for The WonderPoles, but that's just me.

Also, there may or may not be a secret wink-wink dance party happening in the relative vicinity of the benny show. I'm not really supposed to divulge any more info about it, I'm afraid. So I apologize if that TICKs you off. I'm like a TICKing time bomb here.

Moving on, I've always wanted to take part in The Ramble's North vs. South Field Days happening this Saturday at Battery Park. We North End toughs will likely crush you bourgeois South End ninnies with or without my help. But still, it sounds like fun. Plus, the Ramble Round-Up lineup is pretty awesome. Any chance to see Space Tiger is always recommended. Also, Blowtorch is playing. I didn't discover this until recently, but Blowtorch is actually guitar god Bill Mullins' old band from like 20 years ago. Crazy.

Hopefully, I will be back in time to catch Vetiver with Cannon Fodder and Greg Davis at Metronome on Sunday night. And if I'm not . . . shoot me.

Have a great weekend, everyone.
