Here’s an absolutely ridiculous line-up of bands at the cozy little Lizard Lounge tomorrow night (or rather *tonight*, but the time I get this posted..). And speaking of my tardiness, apologies for this ‘quick and dirty’ preview, but this is seriously worthy of a mention, despite its hastiness. This may well sell out, so get there early. See you there.

Wow, what a busy and chaotic 2011, just one week in! While I’m swamped with new shows to list, bands to possibly profile, and a host of other things, I thought I’d show you what I did on New Year’s Eve, though it now seems like a distant memory… Only in Boston do First Night celebrations include parents with their children watching a parade, a man at Downtown Crossing advertising Judgment Day (May 21, in case you were wondering), impressive ice sculptures (melting in the unusually pleasant evening), little kids petting policemen’s horses, and a full-on protest for Palestinian rights. Such were the scenes in and around Boston Common, capped off by a wondrous and satisfyingly loud early fireworks display, and then an evening of awesome music.

The Fatal Flaw, The Hush Now, and The Sheila Divine @ Great Scott ~ Wednesday, November 24, 2010 (SOLD OUT)

Just as I’m getting to this, late as always, I see now that this show is sold out. So if you don’t have tickets, sorry. But I’d like to make a note of it, being as how it’s a big “Boston Band Spectacular”, and at least one of the bands is coming out of a kind of semi-retirement. So I’ll briefly profile all three. If you already know all about them and are going to Great Scott’s Wednesday night, awesome. If you don’t know about them, check ’em out. How’s that?
