(Our in-house House expert, DJ Ms. DD -- whose alter-ego, Michael Freedberg, has been covering dance music for the Boston Phoenix for more than 25 years -- texted us the following after hitting up the Together Fest this weekend. Enjoy.
Just in from Michael Potvin -- a/k/a the parental half of #1 DAD AND DJ FRED MERTZ:
das racist and royal bangs can't make it in this stupid weather, so there will not be a show at great scott tonight. we're working on putting the bands that can make it onto another show tomorrow night but its all up in the air.
We can't haz Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell? Sadface.
A big boo-hiss for NEON INDIAN,
who announced today that they're cancelling their scheduled appearance
at GREAT SCOTT tomorrow night -- which was to have been one of the
bigger cards for this week's electronic-music festival TOGETHER BOSTON.
Instead, tomorrow night they'll be appearing on JIMMY FALLON. We're
trying to figure out what to call this -- a reverse McCain?
Scott gig has been re-scheduled for March 9, and all tickets will be
honored at the later date. That said, we highly recommend showing up at
Great Scott tomorrow night anyway, since the opening bands -- Portland,
Oregon's SOUTHERN BELLE and Boston's own MYSTERY ROAR
-- will be playing. After the jump: Mystery
Roar plays the Together Festival national anthem.
