Holy shit remember a few years ago when BANG CAMARO blew up Harvard Square at the MayFair party? There are now confused single-parented 3-year-olds walking up and down Mass Ave because of that performance. If you missed it, peep the video above, then clear your Sunday slate this weekend for the 28th annual MayFair in Cambridge, a pretty decent offering of local rock (they often are, we have to admit) and musical sideshow attractions.
The phone at Twisted Village rang again a little after one o’clock last Thursday afternoon.
Letting several rings go by, owner Wayne Rogers reluctantly picked up, already knowing the question poised on the other end.
“Yes, it’s true,” Rogers said gently. “July 25.”
Sunday will be Twisted Village’s final day of business, capping a 14-year run that would see the subterranean Harvard Square record shop sell countless vinyl discs, host too-many-to-count in-store appearances — Wizz Jones, Richard Bishop, and Thurston Moore among Rogers’s most memorable — and establish itself as one of the most respected music havens in the country.
