Triple Thick kept the spirit of the Abbey Lounge alive at Sally O’Brien’s. I’ve had “All Banged Up” in my head ever since.
There’s a show I’d like to go to just about every night somewhere in this town. Some nights it can be tough to choose just one. Friday night is going to be impossible. Fourteen lovable Daykamp Music alumni will be taking the stage at five different area venues on October 17th. My brain is melting. What to do? Let’s see if we can figure this out together.
Let’s start at The Middle East Upstairs for a very good cause. Township, White Dynomite, The Field Effect and Triple Thick will be there for Crash Safely along with Animal Hospital. That’s alotta rock, with the money raised going to support The National MS Society. (FB Event)
Maybe you want to do good with your show-going dollars, but that show isn’t your thing? You could always head next door to TT’s for the latest installment of the Boston Does Boston benefit for the Animal Rescue League Of Boston. Cask Mouse, The Rationales, The Daily Pravda, Muy Cansado and The Fatal Flaw will be joined by Dave Crespo’s After Party at that one. (FB Event)
If you’re caught up in the Boston Music Awards buzz and want to check out New Artist Of The Year nominee The Color And The Sound, then Church is the place for you. Bonus time! Doom Lover are on that bill, too. Daykamp Music loves them, but we secretly worry they’re plotting our demise. At least they’ll write a creepy-cool song about it. (FB Event)
If you can’t find something to like in one of those shows, there’s nothing I can do for you. Oh wait! Yes there is! You can go see Gondoliers at Cuisine en Locale with Shepherdess and Planet Of Adventure. This show is being filmed. I can’t even image what Gondoliers have up their sleeves. I can’t wait to see.

Hi. Daykamp Music TV, here. Just checking in to let you know about all the cool new videos we’ve got on our not-actually-a-television-station music television station. It’s Friday. I’m not saying you don’t actually want to get any work done, but if you were looking to kill some time you could do worse than checking out some of these videos.
Oh, and I just added all of The Cars videos, because they’re awesome…
Triple Thick! Whoa! I’ve seen their name on bills with some of my favorite bands since the Abbey days, yet somehow I’ve never managed to catch one of their shows. Boy, have I been missing out! Their killer mix of garage rock, power pop and early-Dictators-like-proto-punk is right up my alley. I love this band. Thank you Crash Safely for putting on this fantastic benefit so I could finally see what I’ve been missing.*
* Oh, and for raising money to help end Multiple Sclerosis (MS). That’s a pretty good thing, too. Seriously, go donate if you can.
