Hey y'all, miss me? Well I sure as fuck missed you guys, and am thrilled to be back hosting BOSTON ACCENTS on the relaunched WFNX.com. Today's show was a big one -- it kickstarts a new era of programming, where we devote 60 minutes each day to new music from around New England, so join me here in the Phoenix newsroom every day from 5 to 6pm on the WFNX stream as we bounce around Massachusetts and ever so slightly beyond, bringing you the best in rock, pop and electronic music.
If the whole Halloween Cover Show circuit isn’t your bag, then the only man you should be spending October 31 with is WALTER “Every Day Is Halloween” SICKERT. The steampunk shamen brings his Army of Broken Toys to Brighton Music Hall in the land of broken children -- also known around town simply as "Allston" -- for a night dubbed as “super villainous sugar-fueled masquerade music mayhem.
Hey WFNX listeners and party people,
Hurricane Sandy might be able to wreak havoc on our party, but it can’t crush the spirit of our re-launch. We’ve decided to postpone tomorrow night’s event at the Lansdowne Pub in Boston, but you can still be a part of the long-awaited WFNX resurrection -- join us online at wfnx.
In honor of Halloween -- and because we've been all about lists, lately -- here are the 20 greatest MISFITS covers ever, presented without commentary. A fierce debate in the Phoenix newsroom erupted over numbers one and two, and I'm already internet stalking Cynthia Couto (uh, is emo girls covering Michale Graves-era Misfits totally a thing now?).
It's a New Music Spooktacular on BOSTON ACCENTS tonight, mixing up some fresh new rock and pop jams with some creepy experimental sounds from the New England underground. Feels good to be back in the studio after a one-week absence. We're back in action next Sunday night from 8 to 10pm, only on WFNX, 101.7 FM and streaming online at wfnx.
Oh hey COOL RANCH, what's shakin'? How's things? Got a Halloween party tonight at Middlesex Lounge in Central Scare (love that one)? Got handjobs on the dance floor and kissing booths in the corner? Got free 'Ritos? Got Misfits? Got free-at-the-door? Well right on.
BODEGA GIRLS PRESENT: COOL RANCH HALLOWEEN BASH!
Last night's Boston Accents loval music show was divided into two parts: the first hour featuring Halloween-appropriate songs, and the last 60 minutes dedicated to the late Billy Ruane, playing an hour of his favorite New England-based performers past and present. Host Dave Duncan also took calls from Aly Spaltro (Lady Lamb The Beekeeper), Sean Slade
(Fort Apache) and Mike Gill (Murder Mile & videographer), who shared their Ruane stories and memories live on air.
