SUN 9/27: Sandman Lives!

There's one thing that I'd strongly recommend today. If you don't want to be blown away, that's fine...

There's a pretty cool show at Great Scott too.


SUN 9/27

Noon to 5pm
Mark Sandman Memorial Concert
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Scheduled: Orchestra Morphine, Treat Her Right, Elastic Waste Band, Zili Misik, Mean Creek, Faces on Film, Rite Hook, Amadeus the Stampede, Blak Madeen, Mickey Bones, Hot Tamale Brass Band, more

The great Mark Sandman died 10 years ago, but he's far from forgotten. The exact opposite in my opinion.

Many of his former bandmates (way more than Morphine guys) and admirers get together and celebrate by low-rocking it. More rock, blues, hip-hop, etc.

It was supposed to be an outdoor concert that has been moved to the Middle East (where they have TVs to watch the Pats...)

Get in for free, but make a donation to the Mark Sandman Music Project to benefit music support for young people. Buy a shirt... Buy raffle tickets... There are some auction items...


SUN 9/27

Wavves, Ganglians
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$10 / 18+

Shake the rain with a couple of tasty, lo-fi, noisy pop experimental bands from California. (Maybe some local support?)
