Everybody wants a piece of BODEGA GIRLS, and after last month’s Best Music Poll party, we think everyone in Boston got some. Now the tables turn with “Everybody Wants a Piece of My Baby,” a sexy soul ballad of love and lust that’s the B-side to the Bodegas’ “Live Free or Die” single, an ode to New Hampshire/Independence Day released this weekend on Burning Mill Records (cassingle/digital).
Yes, the word "epic" is grossly overused and has lost any and all of its merit. But there's just no other way to describe this nearly-15-minute clip from Wednesday's BEST MUSIC POLL party at Brighton Music Hall. (Plus it's Friday, two days later, and my brain is fried).
During BODEGA GIRLS' second "interlude set," they were joined by COSMO and BOBBY of DOM and performed Dom's "Living In America," followed by AMANDA PALMER for a cover of her "Map of Tasmania," and then, lastly, by BILL JANOVITZ, when the ensemble busted out a lost BUFFALO TOM b-side, "Does This Mean You're Not My Friend."
Well, here's Wednesday's grand BMP finale.
As the Bruins rolled into the third period en route to a Game 7 Stanley Cup victory, the roof blew off the Brighton Music Hall well before Zdeno Chara lifted that 36-pound silver chalice over his head in Vancouver. In wrapping up a legendary night at the first-ever Best Music Poll awards party, PETER WOLF, DUKE LEVINE and BILLY BEARD hit the stage and joined BODEGA GIRLS and Nikki Dessingue of STEREO TELESCOPE for a blazing rendition of J.
Sick of BODEGA GIRLS yet? Well, here's something different -- a Bodega original. Not satisfied with playing only Boston Rock Songs of Yesteryear at Wednesday's BMP Party at Brighton Music Hall, our house sprinkled in some of their own tunes, and here for "School Night" they rocked large in an epic, all out, no-holds-barred jam session.
More video of Wednesday night's shit show Best Music Poll awards party keep rolling in, and here man-about-town Mick Murray gives us those frisky BODEGA kids covering legendary Boston-born new wave gem "Voices Carry." 'TIL TUESDAY's 1985 original is damn near untouchable, but Bodega's Carmen O'Conner did one hell of a job channeling the great Aimee Mann Wednesday night at Brighton Music Hall.
Tonight, we rage.
After weeks of planning, plotting and counting up a gazillion votes, The Phoenix is ready to throw down at tonight's Best Music Poll awards at the Brighton Music Hall in Allston. Fear not, we'll have the Bruins on the televisions as they shoot for their first Stanley Cup since 1972, and the awards should be over around whenb the 3rd period starts.
We're just a fortnight away from the Ides of March release of BODEGA GIRLS' debut record, Et Tu Bootay (off Burning Mill Records, the label that first gave us Dom's Sun Bronzed Greek Gods last summer). To get us worked up all nice and stuff, today those Bodega sluts unveiled their new video for lead single "School Night." Kick it.
So, what's that up there?
We're not entirely sure, but we do know that it's a sneak-peek of the album art for Bodega Girls' debut record, Et Tu Bootay, which hits our dance floors off on March 15. The record will be released on colored vinyl 10-inch and iTunes off Bay State-based Burning Mill Records, home to DOM and Golden Girls.
If you’re familiar with BODEGA GIRLS’ balls-out booty attack, the details of “We Are Losers” won’t surprise — chunky electro-kickdrums, squiggle-vision synths, and gang vocals figure heavily in this track’s game plan. But the secret weapon is the alchemy they exhibit on the chorus, which is lifted from either the Violent Femmes or, better yet, Ready for the World’s ’85 jheri-curl jam “Oh Sheila.
