Boss Metal Zone

I know we’re well into November, but the city’s finest punk exotica surf rock outfit delivered this Halloween treat that should not go unmentioned. Beware The Dangers Of A Ghost Scorpion! put together the Boss Metal Zone from their time at Rubber Tracks Boston. The four quick-hitters included here are chock full o’ the scorching instrumental goodness you’ve come to expect from the masked musical marauders. Listen if you dare.*

Where to get it:

AjDIO @ O’Brien’s Pub 10.28.2015

Tackling the works of Ronnie James Dio should not be taken lightly. AjDIO is clearly invested in doing the legend justice. Ajda the Turkish Queen’s vocals were front and center, but it was her uncanny knack for RJD’s mannerisms that turned the set into performance art. The band was locked in. The guitar tones were spot on. On top of that, the whole night was put together to raise money for Girls Rock Campaign Boston. What’s not to love here?

Bert And The Manual Transmissions @ The Dante Alighieri Society of Massachusetts 10.24.2015

If Wonder Woman and Captain America got married, you might imagine there’d be some pretty interesting guest at the reception. You’d be right. So when Bert from Sesame Street, Super Chicken, Barry Gibb, Vincent Vega, Buddy the elf, the milkman, a flapper, Mr. Moxie, Matthew Crawley, The Penguin and Brendan Haley J Mascis a wizard guy get up and play some Stones, Cheap Trick, Tom Petty and ‘Mats covers you shouldn’t be surprised. No, instead you should be thankful you have a pocket camera and snap a couple of pictures.

Oh, and you haven’t lived until you’ve seen Bert sing “Here Comes A Regular.”
