When the BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS secret-service-like security at the former Charles Street Jail and current Liberty Hotel don't pat you down and run a quick background check at the front door, it's almost shocking. They are at the bottom of the escalator. And the top of the escalator. They are on the stair cases, and balconies and in every bathroom (duh).
Boston trash metal party dudes RAMMING SPEED today unveiled a 31-date cross-country tour of our beautiful and scenis United States of America, wrapping up bommerang-style with a New Year's Eve homecoming gig. The first ten shows of the tour, which takes Ramming Speed from New York to San Francisco, are with Oakland sludgers Saviours, and you may recall Phoenix writer Daniel Brockman blowing a record-review load over the band's Death Procession album in last week's paper.
