Praise Bobby Orr for updates like these. I missed last night's BOSTON ACCENTS because I was out between Harvard and Inman Squares witnessing Doomstar apply poke and stick tattoos on the Phoenix correspondents P. Nick Curran (also of You Can Be A Wesley) and Addison Post. It was the first time for all parties involved. More on that nonsense in next week's edition, but in the meantime, here's a recap of last night's show, which features the best in new and tested New England rock every Sunday night from 8 to midnight, 101.7 FM on the dial and streaming online at wfnx.com.
