    Temporary detour: tonight's "THROWED" has been moved from Harpers Ferry down the block to Great Scott. It'll be back at Harpers' next month, supposedly with Andrew WK headlining. We'll say it again: "Throwed" next month with AWK at Harpers. Now back to this month. Back to tonight. Back to E-Marce, Redd Foxx and our dude David Day.

    Long before he was catching 8.5s on P4K, Grizzly Bear's Edward Droste was skulking around Cambridge, keeping an amazingly low profile given that his ancestors are pretty damn Harvarded-up. His Bear family broke out of Brooklyn, but he brought the clan back to Mass to record Yellow House at his mom's house (guess what color?) in Watertown, and he'll be back in Boston to play the Museum of Fine Arts's indie-rock series this Friday, February 2.

    Normally, I'm not much of a third wave ska fan. I find the entire Moon Ska catalogue sleep-inducing (that being said, neither am I one of these I'm-ashamed-to-admit-I-ever-listened-to-ska-in-high-school-music-fans.)

    Google shows its solidarity with the KISS Army.

    Somewhere, you can bet Gene Simmons is blood-capsule-spitting mad again this year, as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum again declined to grant KISS entry onto its rolls.
