"THROWED" debut feat. SPANK ROCK in Allston


feat. Spank Rock, Chris Rockswell, E-Marce, David Day and !!!'s Justin Vandervolgen
Harpers Ferry, Allston
10 pm, 18-plus

Year-end lists won't reflect it (SORRY, DUH), but '06 was the year that PAPER broke through and turned hardcore's infamous "the kids" into non-rockist party-music ballers. Scenesters could pshaw all they wanted to, but the ones who took a turn behind the decks emerged changed humans: DUDE, IT'S PACKED WITH TEENAGE GIRLS WHO DANCE WTF?! For the benefit of outsiders: this does not ever happen in Boston. And, having a dedicated audience of young kids, they also had the cash to lure in the types of out-of-town DJs who'd usually not even bother playing here. Exhibit A: the Spank Rock dudes, who liked it so much that Chris "Rockswell" Devlin has now teamed up with Paper resident Eric "E-Marce" Marcelino for a monthly night at Harpers Ferry -- yes, the original home of Paper. The new night, dubbed "THROWED," kicks off Tuesday night. That's right. It kicks off on the Tuesday before Christmas. No, no, please: hold your applause.

Devlin, it turns out, has recently moved to Boston -- hey Gawker: Boston is the new Philly is the new Brooklyn! -- and E-Marce says they're shooting for a Boston version of Philly's "Making Time" party. Don't know about you nerds, but with Juwan (a/k/a the Spank Rock in Spank Rock) taking the mic at midnight and Justin from !!! on the turntables (perhaps spinning their hilariously titled new record Myth Takes?), this should be a done deal. For reference, this is how E-Marce rolls -- and the vid below is taken from a show in front of a bunch of indie-rock stiffs. Imagine this with emokids going apeshit:
