Kids Like You & Me’s 6th Anniversary Party! (7/1/15)

Six Years
Flyer by Jim Leonard

Six fucking years. It’s been a wacky, wild journey. From seeing Jay Reatard’s final moments on stage as we entered a new decade to slithering our way into Boston’s underground (quite literally) music scene via our first basement shows to starting a record label and throwing shows of our own, it’s been nuts.

To celebrate Kids Like You & Me’s sixth year of existence on this planet and every other, we’re having a big ass blowout at our favorite venue, the Middle East (upstairs) in Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This show is reserved for the top tier of Boston KLYAM bands: The Barbazons, Nice Guys, and G. Gordon Gritty – all KLYAM Records bands as well as longtime KLYAM favorite Atlantic Thrills from Providence, Rhode Island.

Flyer by Gritty himself
Tonight, G. Gordon Gritty sonically joins the KLYAM Records family. No longer just the KLYAM haus band. Kids Like You & Me and BUFU Records are teaming up to release G. Gordon’s Gritty’s latest 33 song magnum opus entitled “Still Not a Musician,” a compilation spanning ten years worth of gritty material.

The show takes place at our monthly stomping ground: Club Bohemia (the Cantab Lounge basement) located in Central Square, Cambridge.

Local outlaws, The Shallow End Divers and Underwater Bear Ballet will assist Gritty in a fun filled night of loose, slovenly rock ‘n’ roll. Queens, NY/BUFU Record’s own Tall Juan (of Beets/Juan Wauters fame and glory) will shake your hips and stimulate your mind with his epic Ramones odes; only a true Queens man could deliver. Oh and he’s bringing the whole band.

21+ :( sorry kids… $8. Doors at 8:30, show starts at 9. See you soon.

P.S. G. Gordon Gritty is hitting up Chris Collins’ “Mass Ave and Beyond” Radio show on WZBC from 5-7PM before the show. Tune in to 90.3 around 6 or a little after to hear the band play before you catch em’ in the flesh.

G. Gordon Gritty’s “Still Not a Musician” Coming Out On KLYAM & BUFU/Release Show @ Club Bohemia (5/29)

Flyer by Gordon himself

Yo what up freaks, KLYAM and BUFU are teaming up to bring you the latest release “Still Not a Musician” from Boston Outsider Rockin honoroller G. Gordon Gritty aka Gangbang Gordon. GBG is in the past, let the past be the past. I miss the name too, but Gritty is just as wiry and wholesome and weird and charming as the gangbang. In fact, it’s exactly the same and entirely different. Huh?

More on that later.Joining in on the slopfest are some of our favorites in recent memory. Waltham, MA’s The Shallow End Divers are opening up the festivities with their brand of balls out, no fucking around 60s garage rock ‘n’ roll – slime that would feel right at home at the Delta House. Fellow Bostonians, Underwater Bear Ballet share a similar fuzz fidelity and shake things in an even weirder direction. Rounding out the bill is Queen’s, NY’s own Tall Juan. You may have seen Juan playing alongside the shorter Juan, Juan Wauters in The Beets and in his solo work. Well, if you dig The Beets/Wauters, then you’ll freak out over Tall Juan’s similarly captivating, Ramonesian folk garage pop. Check out the dude’s latest music video for “I Like to Stay Home” (R. Stevie Moore) below. Directed by Beets vet Matthew Volz.

KLYAM & BUFU Present: G. Gordon Gritty’s “Still Not a Musician” KLYAM Records/BUFU Records Tape Release Show w/ Tall Juan (NY), Underwater Bear Ballet, The Shallow End Divers @ Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge basement) in Cambridge, MA on Friday, May 29th!

This show is 21+ :( sorry kids. $8, 8:30 PM. COME OUT!

*SHOW TONIGHT*: Nice Guys, Black Beach, Jacques Le Coque, GBG @ Club Bohemia (4/17)!

Hello local mischief makers, boy do we have a shoe for you tonight. Tonight, tonight, at Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge basement) in Central Square, Cambridge, KLYAM Presents: Nice Guys, Jacques Le Coque (CT), Black Beach, and Gangbang Gordon. 8:30 PM, $8, 21+ sorry kids :(  Facialbook event Page:

It’s been nearly two years since we’ve seen our punk slimy Connecticut brethren in Jacques Le Coque, but now they’re back and with a new record, may I add. Hooky (King Pizza), pick that sheet up at the show and listen to it here: I WANT YOU TO GET SOME COQUE!

Joining the Coque, will be some local ruffians if I ever saw any. I’d like to give a shout out to URSULA first though, they were originally scheduled to play this show, but couldn’t make it due to illness. :(, we send our best wishes their way and you need to LISTEN to them immediately:
Filling in for them is bizarre noisemaker, occasional hipshaker nonmusician Gangbang Gordon. Playing a quick solo set to warm y’all up for…

Black Beach is a newer band to me, but one that has consistently shaken my soul with their aggressive brand of psychedelic garage grunge mish mash. Picture The Doors partying in a van with Mudhoney and Nirvana. Throw in some blistering surf rock for good measure.
A fantastic addition to the messy, care free rock ‘n’ roll embodied by fellow Bostonians in Miami Doritos, Midriffs, and…

KLYAM Records’ own Nice Guys. Needs no introduction or explanation. Look thru the archives sucka.
