My sincerest apologies for the lack of updates, folks! The day job has been killer this June. Thankfully the dust settles a bit the end of this week and I hope to return to our regularly scheduled (was I ever really on a schedule?) programming next weekend.
In the meantime, stuff has happened/is happening/will happen:
- Have Not are playing July 12 at the Middle East Upstairs. It’s also the Lenny Lashley CD Release
- Big D put out 2 new records. Stream both on Bandcamp. Live High Five has an interview with the band.
- Less Than Jake played on a boat in Boston Harbor yesterday. They just finished a new album.
- Cherry Poppin’ Daddies play Middle East Downstairs August 18. They also just finished a new record.
- Threat Level Burgundy put out a new album. Stream a song. They play at All Asia June 30?
- The Apple Stomp two weeks ago was awesome. Consequence of Sound did a nice write up. Skapunkphotos.com has great photos from the night.
- Also Westbound Train and the Toasters on a boat yesterday was awesome. Didn’t make it to the after party with Void Union and Obi Fernandez.
- I expect Rancid was awesome last night. I’m going tonight. Hoping it will be awesome.
- I added a page to capture the online conversation around #bostonska. Tag your stuff, yo!
Hoping to back in the groove/swing/skank of things (see what I did there?) by the end of June. I could for sure use a hand if you want to get involved in any way. Here’s where we could use help:
- Show reviews
- Artist interviews
- Updating show listings
- Blogging on the topic of your choice (State of the scene? Your new favorite band? Memoirs of shows gone by? Your choice)
- WordPress theme styling
- Any other idea you might have!
Just email jake (at) bostonska (dot) net and we’ll get things going.
