Big Pink/Smith Westerns Cancel Boston Date/Dead Prez Replaces!

The Big Pink and the Smith Westerns were supposed to play July 29 at the Middle East Downstairs. That’s not happening. If you bought tickets, go to the Middle East and get your money back or get tickets to see their replacement –> Dead Prez, the critically acclaimed political hip-hop duo. Check out their songs “It’s Bigger Than Hip Hop” (2000) and “Far From Over” (2010).

Nice Overplayed List, WMBR!

As the DJ noted, the list isn’t about good or bad…it was about what was played a bit much in 2009. Turns out a few personal favorites were included like:

#97 – Nobunny – “Nobunny Loves You”
#73 – Black Lips – “Short Fuse”
#40 – Big Pink – Dominoes
#31 – Box Elders – “Alice & Friends”
#13 – Sonic Youth – “Leaky Lifeboat (for Gregory Corso)”
#12 – Jay Reatard – “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me”
#10 – Pains of Being Pure at Heart – “Young Adult Friction”
#4 – Mission of Burma – “1, 2, 3, Partyy!”
