    • What can you do, fliers and handbills are simply obsolete.  There are a couple of telephone poles located nearby my work place that still have a ton of staples stuck in them from the days of flyers, and seeing them always makes me a little nostalgic.  I can still remember seeing a flier for a bill that included Manda and the Marbles, and that made me want to check out that gig and led to my discovery of one of my favorite bands.  I can also remember posting a few fliers myself for that same band.  I still see fliers in the record stores and a few other places, so they haven't totally disappeared.

       

      Hope you have a great time at the Sonics/Cynics gig:)

    • So glad I finally got my tickets (Story of my struggle reported on my Sonics Event Report.) , if the show is really almost sold out.....You would'nt know , because they have'nt promoted it at all. That's the attitude clubs have , today "If you don't know , I don't care to tell you.". Of course , it's listed on their website , but , God forbid , something crazy , like flyers and handbills (There is one flyer in the venue's window......Just like there was for the abortive Sky Saxon and The Seeds/ Electric Prunes / and Johnny Echols with "Love Revisited " (Baby Lemonade , Arthur's longtime backing band.) how. Echols/Love Revisited played , at least , tho' the flyer in the window said Michael Stuart , not Echols , was on the show ! ). Of course, the Sonics show will sell out , I just could'nt have guessed , when . I have'nt seen it listed in "The Reader" , our local music / arts / sometimes human interest paper. Ok , people with keener eyes may say they say it listed , there.  Last time a friend said a show was listed there , when it was'nt , I did'nt make a big thing about it......

       

      I know we're supposed to be dependent , now, on the internet , but , there's too damn many clubs in this town. Granted , most of them don't really warrant my attention , but , when a new venue opens , it's usually months , even years , before I hear about it. I'm not in my 20's, anymore , so clubbing does'nt take up all my spare time , as it once did.  We had fewer , and frequently better ,  clubs , back then , and they all advertized , and bands were allowed to put up flyers almost anywhere ,  so , it was easy to keep up with shows ......

    • They are playing at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, OH, on Feb. 28, and they will share the bill with Pittsburgh's own Cynics.  Gregg Kostelich said on facebook that this gig, along with another gig that will take place in Chicago the night before at the Double Door, are both nearly sold out, so if you want to check out two great bands together in either one of those places, you might want to act fast.

    • For those of you who like yer Rock & Roll Cocktail "Cold and Salty", The Grim Imperials will be playing the til-two Club in San Diego this Sat Night. We kick things off at 9 so please come early!

    • 3 piece band looking for a full-time organ/keyboard player. I have a '68 RHEEM combo organ that you are welcome to use as well. We just released a 5 song EP and will be playing shows around Southern California to support it.

      Us: We are heavily influenced by '60s and modern Garage bands (Sonics, Wailers, Chesterfield Kings, Greenhornes, etc) and R&R bands like Imperial State Electric, Hellacopters, The Blue Van, etc. We are in our 30s and have lots of touring and recording experience. We practice once a week in Carlsbad. This band is NOT a money making endeavor. . . we play for the love of R&R! If money comes from shows we put it into recording more songs.

      You: Love primitive rock, Garage, etc. Can actually play, and ideally you can sing backups! We write with lots of backups in mind. 

      If interested please let me know a bit about yourself.

      Thanx for looking!

    • Hey , it was an original topic for discussion. I like Country music , whoever's still alive and worth a damn probably plays there , alongside all the cheeseballs..... BUT , even though he put his name on dog and cat food , you can bet George Jones would have NEVER opened a theatre in Branson. BARRING "OLDIES" SHOWS , THOUGH , I CAN'T IMAGINE THAT THERE'S ANYTHING RESEMBLING ROCK'N'ROLL IN THAT TOWN.

    • i just saw the new live album from Third Man. Apparently , it was from their very first show.....There's several "Back From The Grave" songs (But no "Ya Ha Be Be" , alas.). THEY WERE SO INNOCENT , THEY DID'NT EVEN START WITH PEBBLES , NUGGETS , ETC . , THEY WENT STRAIGHT TO BFTG ,  swearing they were'nt aware of any previous comps. Someone said in "Detroit Rock City" , "I don't relate to this Garage Punk stuff ! I don't even OWN a denim jacket !".....I never thought od Garage Punk/Rock being a uniform or a fashion. When I got my first denim jacket , in about 1974 , The Standells were only reforming for the first time !! I've been wearin' 'em ever since , partly because , in the 80's , I did'nt have $300 FOR A LEATHER JACKET.

    • Cool. Magic Stick is a great venue. At least , it was , when I WENT THERE 16 YEARS AGO TO SEE ? AND tHE MYSTERIANS.

      THE GORIES , BARELY NOTICED IN THEIR HEYDAY , HAVE A NEW LEASE ON LIFE.......AND THEY'RE STILL LIKE BIG KIDS WHEN THE ACTIVATE WONDER TRIPLET POWERS TO BECOME THE GORIES , AGAIN. IF YOU THINK THEY HAVE A MASTER PLAN , OTHER THAN TO PLAY ROCK 'N'ROLL , LIKE IT'S THEIR FIRST AND LAST GIG , YOU ARE A FOOL.

    • Got tickets! Also Problems is opening this show

    • November 4, 2013 12:38 PM CST
    • Right on.   When the band finally started touring the states , in earnest , it had seemed like such a long wait , for me , to see them , but they eventually played Chicago , several times , and I also saw them once in New York. THEY HAD , OF COURSE , ALREADY PLAYED MUCH OF WESTERN EUROPE , AND FORMER SOVIET BLOC COUNTRIES THAT WERE ONLY BEGINNING TO OPEN UP TO AMERICAN ACTS...... I JOKINGLY TOLD FRED , "PLEASE DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOU'VE PLAYED CHINA AND CUBA TO COME BACK TO CHICAGO.".

      ENJOY THE LIVING HELL OUT OF THE SHOW !

    • Hey - I'm booking up The Mad Doctors' first extended tour and we're looking for some sweet bands in Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and Bloomington. Anyone got any good recommendations? I have been in touch with a number of bands from each area but haven't had much luck.

       

      Thanks!

    • Before the site changed there was a young lady who I believe went by Dana Deluxe out of LA who has a great pod cast. Are you still here Dana?

    • November 19, 2013 11:42 PM CST
    • My guess is , they are'nt offering to pay him as much as Space is. To my knowledge , he has'nt played either venue. Maybe Fitzgerald's once or twice. I really stopped following him a long time ago , so , I'm not sure.

    • THEY'VE TOURED EUROPE, JAPAN, CHINA AND AUSTRALIA AND NOW...NEW YORK CITY (AND BROOKLYN)!!!!



      This is London’s greatest and most sensational Rhythm’n’Blues-Punk band. And this is a band that truly represents London, being a mongrel mix of Caribbean, France, Japan, Wales and the newly-arrived sax man from Mexico. (I know that adds up to five but that’s irrelevant!) With a repertoire influenced by many of the great songs of the ’50s and ’60s made to sound fresh and new to modern ears, you won’t be able to help but move your feet when the Cumberland Three are blasting out of your speakers. The King howls like Screaming Jay Hawkins with Bo Diddley chasing his coat-tail whilst Andre Williams tries to offer up some of his bacon fat, and the Trashman do the Surfin' Bird behind him. This is a man that never stops shakin’ and twistin’ and groovin’. The Cumberland Three (former members of punk rock bands, including The Parkinsons) rock up a storm with their own branded mix of vintage rockabilly, desperate rock’n’roll and stomping soul, with fire, energy, gusto and, above all, fun! Their numerous vinyl singles and their debut album have sold like the proverbial hot cakes and their latest offering "Cookin' Up a party!" is sure to do the same. This is an old fashioned singles band, one that puts out one seven inch after another, all designed, and guaranteed, to get you dancing like a madman – and both sides of their new long playing platter are sure to do the same, with one hit record coming one after another.

      The band has played pretty much everywhere in Europe, plus Australia and Japan, and more recently in China (Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Wuhan, and elsewhere from big cities to rural villages) and have shared a stage with the likes of the Standells, Pretty Things, Trashmen, and the Mummies, to name a few. Indeed, so well regarded are they by the titans of rock’n’roll and rhythm’n’blues that they have a record coming out soon on which they share the grooves with the legendary Andre Williams! Whether on stage or on record this is one of the most exciting bands in rock’n’roll right now – they are guys who know what it takes to make you move. Equal parts rock'n 'roll and soul, with a healthy dose of blues and rockabilly and a good bit of punk rock attitude, whether you’re at a club show or in your living room you won’t be able to help yourself from shaking and shimmying. You can bet your bacon that they're gonna be cookin’ up a party at your house too!
