Guten Morgen, Loyal Readers. It’s 7:45am, Cleveland time, and last nights cocktail of shuckin’ oysters and single malt Auchentoshan hasn’t settled too well. To quote my little protegé, Holt “Dr. Feelbad” Richardson, stickman for my music-business-plaything The Bosch, “I’m sittin’ on the can, takin’ out the trash.”
I’ve been milkin’ the VIP treatment here in Cleveland-town the last few days, my old man was Miles Davis’ horn tech, and he grew to be a trusted ear to Miles over the years, our families tight enough to get me the invite to the Rock Hall induction ceremony for Miles… but enough about me- I know you’re here for more news about our precious boys Matt, Andrew, Brett and Holt.
The next month will see our foursome hittin’ the town, packin’ brand new songs over which they’ve been slavin’ for weeks, and two swingin’ gigs: Thursday, March 30th has the boys, along with the inimitable DJ MOJO, curating a night of rollickin’ rock- At the 169 BAR in Chinatown, along with up-and-coming duo A + P (with whom The Bosch had the distinct pleasure of sharing the bill at Sin-é.) These two guys break it down with soul, taste AND manage to bring fun to the proceedings. Hard to beat. Perhaps the stage-antics of metal heroes WHITE LIMO, close friends of Bassman Brett can manage- the last gig The Bosch played with these cats included a turkey carving- via gasoline-powered chainsaw. It was Thanksgiving, after all.
Select members of the Bosch extended family will be guest DJing all night, along with the inviting house pool table and the odd locale of East Broadway, how could yah miss it?
Next on the agenda-Thursday April 27th, Bosch-Heads can delight in the opportunity to rock out at Tonic for The Deli Magazine launch party.
Along with my behind-the-scenes prodding (avec Aiguillon De Bétail) The Bosch boys have weasled their way into favor with these fine folks, who produce a dedicated magazine about the local NYC scene. If you haven’t had the chance to give it a look, you oughta check em out at www.thedelimagazine.com. They’re in a bit of a pinch regarding their physical paper printing, needin’ to increase advert revenue, and there’s a little 20 second survey about businesses who might advertise. I say turn off yer don’t-give-a-damn switch for 5 minutes and help ‘em out. The Bosch and I would be much obliged.
Also, Saturday April 1st at 4pm- think about swingin’ by THE CAKESHOP. Our good friends LOGJAM!! will perform. This will be a unique opportunity to see “LOGJAM!!” as well as a performance by LOGJAM!!.
Till next time, don’t eat Oysters in months without the letter “R.” OR with copious amounts of High-End Scotch.
