Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents ripped out a fantastic mix of originals and covers in Gloucester. This is one heck of a band.

The time has come to say goodbye to T.T. The Bear’s Place. Here’s one photo from each of the 392 times I stood in front of bands in that room since this site launched.

My final pilgrimage to TT The Bear’s Place began with Cujo playing Jen’s song “Better Than Nothing,” thus ensuring I would be smiling all night.

Watching The Daily Pravda own this stage one more time wouldn’t be a bad way to go out.

I’m sad it took TT’s closing its doors for me to see Bearstronaut, but I’m glad I finally got to experience the energy of this electro-rhythm machine.
