VICTORY AT SEA “The Party” -- Reunion show tonight at the MIddle East, a benefit show for Donna Shroupsky-Rain, who is facing mounting medical bills during her fight against cancer. For more on the show, check out my post earlier today on OTD.
VICTORY AT SEA “Bored Otherwise” -- Awww yeah, a double shot of Victory at Sea to open the show, started with a deep cut off 2007's All Your Things Are Gone, and here's perhaps the record's finest track.
Several years ago I was dating this cool lady from Somerville who was very removed from the Boston music scene. A few weeks into our relationship, she confessed a massive love for VICTORY AT SEA, and in particular, the incredible, hypnotic voice of Mona Elliott. I went to the show, which I think was at the Middle East, and was equally impressed, and not too long after, completely fell for their track "Bored Otherwise," the standout off their final record, All Your Things Are Gone
To the teenagers rocking the front of the No Age show on Tuesday: sorry if I punched/elbowed/kneed you in the face/shoulder/body. I realize I’m between six to eight years older than most of you, but once I felt that churning, nearly buoyant guitar attack of “Eraser,” I had to throw down my camera and sprint head-down and elbows-squared into the crowd.
