Yes! We’ve teamed up with heavyboogiemongers Cult 45 to bring you our first video premiere on Daykamp Music TV! “Dead End Kid” is from On High, which the band released back in January. It puts a clever spin on the ol’ video-inside-a-video trick and tosses in a couple of great cameos. Heck, the beard-no-beard countdown at the beginning is reason enough to click the play button.
OK, let’s get something clear. Not only am I a huge fan of the music we’ve got coming out of Boston, but I’m a junkie for high octane rock ‘n’ roll from Sweden. As soon as I heard about the Imperial State Electric show at The Middle East, I freaked out and frantically snatched up tickets. Not only would I get to see a band I never thought I’d get the chance to see live*, but there were three Boston openers ready to give ’em a run for their money.
White Dynomite got things started on a night that would be full-tilt from start to finish. These guys are too much fun.
Apparently, The ‘Hoods thought rocking the socks off the crowd gathered at TT’s for the Viva La Eva!* benefit may be a crime. They didn’t want to take any chances, so they took to the stage with nylons stretched over their faces. That’s the back story I made up in my head, anyway.

There was a lot of great music happening for a great cause, like a wonderful set of Sun Records sounds from Roy Sludge, Jim Haggerty and Duke Levine…
