Ouch, but a good ouch. This new Dylan Ewen
video for “Handcuffs” is not too unlike most videos I watch at night, well it’s a little lighter. Still, looks like fun. Dominatrices 4 lyfe! Check out all of Dylan’s sheet here: http://dylanewen.com/

In case you missed my last post about the Boston Peach Kelli Pop matinee show at T.T. The Bears on April 19th, which now features Littlefoot, Bong wish and Feral Jenny, here’s a poster displaying all the tour dates. When is PKP coming to your town? Needless to say (but, I’ll say it again and again), I’m excited!

Wow, can’t wait for this one. We’re HUGE Peach Kelli Pop fans and it’s always a blast when PKP comes to town. This show is on Sunday, April 19th at T.T. The Bears in Cambridge and it’s a Matinee Show going from 12PM-4PM. That’s right, you didn’t read it wrong, 12PM-4PM during the day. Presented by the best, Illegally Blind. Now, we just have to wait three more months!
Oh and here’s some legendary Boston PKP footage shot by Mr. Melody Matters. You may recognize some of the handsome gentlemen in this vid ;)
We do this every year and ever year I say “damn, has it been that long?” I suppose five years is a milestone, but whatever it’s always the right time to celebrate the life and music of Jay Reatard. Jay was unlike any performer I’ve seen before or since it was as if he was in flames or someone held a pistol to his temple and said “I’m going to pull the trigger if you don’t bust this song out now with everything in you… and do it in two minutes or less.” His music, live and on record, was fiery, raw, and angry. That was his entire attitude. A certain aggression that others lacked. Most of us are too nice for that OR it’s some bullshit machismo. But, Jay was different. He was making pop music, just incredibly brutal pop music. RIP.

Behold the official music video for “Cop Walk” from every kid’s favorite KLYAM band NICE GUYS. Holy sweat Robin, this is the real deal. It’s even got Kevin Bacon in it and he’s doing the Cop Walk too! I bet you can’t do six degrees of Kevin Bacon and Nice Guys? I can, but I’m not giving away my secrets…
WOOOOOO! We had the pleasure of catching Cumstain
in a slimy basement last August, here’s the band playing in front of a sold out show at the Apollo Theater for Pizza Time’s BUMMEROO Festival. These creampies play Rock N Roll Don’t Pay My Bills, Criminally Horney, Boredumb, and my grandmother’s favorite Dahmer Blues (Gimme Head).
Hot damn! Watch this ill live set of Tall Juan
(featuring Juan Wauters on drums and Ben Katzman on bass) at the Whitehaus last week. There’s a nasty mix of OGs and CLASSIC punk. Enjoy. Shot by Zacharie Lanoue.
