I hope those of you in Massachusetts, Maine, and Wisconsin enjoyed a nice long weekend. The rest of you can suck it.
As for me, I made the mistake of scheduling a rehearsal at 6pm on Marathon Monday, prompting several of my band members to show up shitcan hammered. An actual comment from a shirtless Nate: "You know, I really think I should take off my pants. It's hot in here. Don't you think I should take off my pants?"
Luckily, this Thursday all the band members will be (hopefully) fully clothed and ready to rock at O'Brien's. It's the final night of the Harris residency featuring Aloud (whose new album fucking rocks) and Jen Murdza (who's really pretty).
It's THIS THURSDAY, friends! Don't miss this show! Exclamation points numbers three, four, five, and six!!!!
Tomorrow night at O'Brien's in Allston, it's the final night of the Harris residency. All of the previous nights of the residency have sold out. We expect tomorrow night to be no different, despite the fact that some people may be driven away by the fact Henry from Aloud smells like a unique mix of rim jobs and failure.
We are absolutely psyched to be sharing the stage with Harris and Aloud (I guess) again, as they have been our dear friends for many years now. In fact, when Harris was putting together this residency several months ago, they asked us to be a part of it even though they'd never even heard the new band. We're fixing to make sure they never make that mistake again.
So be sure to get there early tomorrow night. Good friends, good tunes, and cheap beer. What more could you ask for on a Thursday night in Allston?
To quote Danny DeVito in a certain underrated buddy movie classic "Tonight is your night, bro."
It's all happening tonight at O'Brien's - Harris, Aloud, Jen Murdza and us. These shows have been selling out, so get there early if you don't want to miss out. Doors are at 8, I believe.
And if you haven't heard it yet, check out week four of the Harris Podcast. Spoiler alert: they absolutely DESTROY me.
See you all tonight, chumps!
Wow - what a special night at O'Brien's last night. Any time we're lucky enough to play with Harris and Aloud, it's not just a show - it feels like a family reunion.
Jen Murdza was terrific and very sweet and her guitarist smokes stogies. Aloud was amazing, tour-tightened, and their drummer is suddenly a lecherous alcoholic. Harris was predictably stellar and even covered a Scamper song.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting us as well as the other bands. It was the best we've felt after a show in the short but glorious history of the Brendan Boogie Band.
If you don't want to stop the rock, be sure to stop by the WBCN Rumble Finals tonight at Harper's Ferry. In a rare anomaly, all the bands are actually good this year.
