Old Kids on the Block 

Published December 11, 2008 at 4:49 p.m.

I went to the Boston Music Awards last Sunday to see my niece's band, Drug Rug, perform. Their song, "Day I Die," was nominated for Song of the Year. They kicked ass — as is normal (and runs in the family) — and the band that performed after them, Big Digit, blew me away. It didn't hurt that one of the singers was dressed in white shorts, white tux jacket and what seemed to be a chainmail helmet of sorts... and he danced on our table. I fell in love — and if you ever get a chance to see them, I'm sure you will too. Or they'll scare the hell out of you. A good time either way.

Anyhoo... Drug Rug didn't win. As I was leaving the building to go in search of some gas in order to burn the place down, I heard them announcing the nominees for Act of the Year. I could have sworn I heard "New Kids on the Block," so I had to stop and wonder if I had slipped into some kind of wormhole. Nope. It was true... and they won. To top it off, Donnie Wahlberg and Jordan Knight came out on stage to accept the award.

I tried to get a picture with my cell phone, but as I said, I was on my way out... luckily, Matt Thorsen was on hand to get this snappy.
