The last time I saw Ted Drozdowski, it was back in the 90s performing with the experimental guitar, bass, and electronics orgy known as Blood Blister, which also included the irrepressible Reeves Gabrels on bass and a myriad of devices. At that time, Ted was also in bands like Vision Thing, Devil Gods, and probably others. Oh yeah, and he also did music reviews for The Boston Phoenix. I just learned that Ted had relocated, some time back, to Nashville, but he’s back in Boston with Scissormen, a bluesy, garagy, slide-guitar loving outfit that I guess is him and “some drummer”. Not sure who that drummer will be, but they’ll be over at Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, along with special guests Peter Parcek and The Ten Foot Pole Cats. Nor’easter be damned, I plan to be there.
P.S. The Scissormen will also be at Cantab Lounge in Cambridge on Monday night (11/16), as guests of Boston folk legend Geoff Bartley. It’s part of a “famed acoustic music night” at the Cantab. Open mike is at 8pm; they’ll go on around 9:30pm. The Cantab is located at 738 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA (Central Square).
