Everybody wants a piece of BODEGA GIRLS, and after last month’s Best Music Poll party, we think everyone in Boston got some. Now the tables turn with “Everybody Wants a Piece of My Baby,” a sexy soul ballad of love and lust that’s the B-side to the Bodegas’ “Live Free or Die” single, an ode to New Hampshire/Independence Day released this weekend on Burning Mill Records (cassingle/digital).

Al-J's never met a guitar loop that he can't smash to pieces.
One of the best Boston MCs of all-time. No doubt.
Few cats would disagree.
Especially if they had to put their shit up against his.
Psyched to see that Al so active in the last few years.
Well, not really. To be honest, I expected the Toronto indie/hardcore band FUCKED UP to be a lot more destructive on stage last Friday at Royale. They have a rich history of being permanently banned from venues, getting the cops called on them, and generally just making everything a giant clusterfuck of tom foolery. They kept their cool (sort of), but the stagediving caused security to eventually wander over to the front of the stage during the song “Police,” naturally.
Looks like Pearl Jam fans will have to wait til next year.
Everyone's perennial guess for who'll-play-Fenway-next turned out not to be on the menu after all. Instead, as some people correctly guessed, it'll be DROPKICK MURPHYS and the MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES at Fenway Park on September 8 and 9.
Marotta is on a well-deserved vacation far, far away -- leaving the bossman to ruin his indie cred by reviewing country music on the blog. -- The Ed.
BOZMO is an Allston supergroup of Jeremy Mendicino of Pretty & Nice, J-Raff Carrasco of Earthquake Party, and Bo Moore of Wonderful Spells. So it goes completely without saying that this band RULES. An all-star cast of Allston garage rockers come together for a garage pop symphonic tour through Bo Moore’s mind.
Vancouver band Nü Sensae perform at Allston basement show 6/23/2011
Halfway through their two month North American tour, WHITE LUNG and NU SENSAE -- both Vancouver-based female-fronted hardcore bands -- made their way to a sweltering Allston basement last night for a show with FOREIGN OBJECTS, ANCIENT FILTH and SKIMASK
“All the crust punks have credit cards,” sings Bo Moore in kicking off “Milksnakes,” the first offering from BOZMO. No, the lyric isn’t lifted from an angry thread on Lemmingtrail, but it could start a flame war there, since Bozmo’s lyrical barrage on cliques and scenes in New York is also fit for Allston, with its bad drunks, braggarts drinking for free, and orphans who “think this place is boring.
It’s been an eventful week for DEAD CATS DEAD RATS – the most dangerous entertainers to emerge from North of Boston since John Cena.
Last Wednesday, they collected both the honor of the 2011 Best Music Poll’s Best Boston Punk Act and from us a semi-coherent explanation as to why the Swaggerin’ Growlers were flaunting the defaced local punk trophy all over the Brighton Music Hall and internet).
