SAT 6/25: Later Half

Do you want to laugh? Do you want to rock?

Or do you want to bike around town with your dangly bits unrestrained?

HEY -- Do you want to play trivia with me on Monday?


SAT 6/25

June Babies w/ Jimmy Anicet
at Tiki Hideaway, Howard Johnson Fenway, 1271 Boylston St, Boston

Feat: Tim Vargulish, Ted Pettingell, Tom Dunlap, Guitler Raphael, Rob Crean, Andrew Durso, Lillian DeVane, Danny Richardson, Phoebe Angle

Hey, you know how crowded it gets around Fenway when the Sox are playing at home? One could watch the game in Pittsburgh where they have gigantic screens, but I like normal TV's at Tiki Hideaway. It is hidden, and the vibe is laid-back even during home games.

Towards the end of the game, a bunch of people will just start being funny. The you drink and laugh. Jimmy Anicet told me you'll get a free drink with admission -- talk to Jimmy if it doesn't happen. Still, this is not a bad predicament!

SAT 6/25

The Rudds, Robin Lane & The Chartbusters, OldJack, Ray Mason Band
at Rosebud Bar & Grill (behind Diner), 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$10 / 21+

Earlier, I was thinking about how often I see Damon the fiddler around Union Square. I see Roy at a bunch of shows too.

When I first moved to town and was interested in working my way into the rock scene, I though someone said this guy was the publisher of The Noise. So I go up to him and say something to that effect.

He gives me a disgusted response that has made me keep my distance for all these years. This guy is a devoted music-lover, and I can understand why 4 great bands would want to play for his birthday.

Who knows the lineup of The Rudds these days? Frontman John Powhida will always be there, and they'll play the killer tunes that I thought was the best in town when they were a full-time band. And Andrea Gillis' flat-out killer singing provides and a nice contrast to Powhida's big ego and fantastic vocals.

In a perfect world, Robin Lane would be considered a gigantic global rock star. Take a look at this if you want learn a bit of Robin's story. And Ray Mason is a bit of a legend as well.

I've always liked OldJack from the first time I saw them, and I keep on liking them as they progress and make more fans all the time.

SAT 6/25

World Naked Bike Ride: Boston
meet at Parkman Bandstand, Boston Common, Boston (Tremont St Side)

I don't know if this is a put-on. I doubt someone would respond before tonight if you emailed. I have a hunch this is your best chance to bike around Boston au naturel with company.

As they say:

The World Naked Bike Ride dress code is "As Bare As You Dare"... How bare is that? How dare is that? It's all up to you. You decide what you are comfortable with.

No one is excluded or discriminated against based on levels of clothing, bodypaint, or anything else for that matter!
So this is not supposed to be a sexy thing -- think about a liberating pro-love, anti-pollution message.

People are encouraged to decorate their ride and/or body with a political message.

FYI: Roller-bladers, roller-skaters, and skate-boarders are welcome to join.

It is real - I saw them biking a few years back. It's not a pretty site and I suspect they were pretty drunk.
