Tonight: the Lights Out's Slush Puppie flash mob in Allston


Summer: what the fuck did we to to you to make you hate us this much? Whatever it was, Allston indie-rockers the Lights Out have an antidote. From the Facebooks: 

Tonight in Brighton, The Lights Out will be instigating a Slush Puppie flashmob.

How did this come about?

The other day, the band was reminiscing over things we miss about summers from our youth. The Slush Puppie was a common thread. Those hot afternoons at summer camp, where Slush Puppies were treated as currency -- like beers in college or cigarettes in prison.

Yesterday, this article appeared in the Boston Globe:

It was a sign. We needed one.

No lame Italian ice or other imposter. If it didn't have a cartoon dog with a hat and its tongue out, it simply would not do.

We asked the Internet where we could find them. A chorus of helpful voices chimed in. Great Scott showed us the way. (http://twitter.com/GreatScottROCK/status/3391788345) A quick phone call to a confused cashier confirmed it.

So tonight, at 6:30, at Kiki's Kwik-Mart, the band will slake our Slush Puppie lust, and everyone's invited. We think it would be fun to mob the place with our friends/total strangers and have a good old time in the parking lot. When 7:15 hits, we'll split and head to rehearsal, all nice and cooled off from yummy Slush Puppies. (We've got two shows this week; this is business, people.)

If you don't know what a Slush Puppie is, it's the RC Cola to 7-Eleven's Coke Slurpee in the slush animal kingdom. Further reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slush_Puppie
