Bill Janovitz and his jumbo acoustic guitar got the music going at Boston Stands with the ACLU. While there’s no denying the impact of Mr Janovitz’s original material, his heartfelt sing-along of the late Chuck Berry’s “30 Days” was a highlight of the night.
Check out performance photos from all of the acts on this wonderful night:

The Sheila Divine
Field Drums opened for Nada Surf with a set of immediately enduring pop.
A trip down to The Met to see Nada Surf found us catching a set from Providence’s Forest Fires to start the night.
To celebrate the vinyl release of Shadow Hymns, Worshipper played their album front-to-back at the Norwood Newbury Comics location during daylight hours. Pretty sweet.
Scissorfight made a big, big noise at Thunder Road.
Watts are rock ‘n’ roll through and through.
My first trip to Thunder Road included a set from hard rock harmonizers Goddamn Draculas.
The Rudds’ rockin’ power pop closed out the first night of the Abbey Lounge Reunion at Sally O’Brien’s. Oh, and bubbles!
Here are a few more photos from the Abbey Lounge Reunion at Sally O’Brien’s. This time it’s The Drags rippin’ it up like the good riff-heads they are.
The Abbey Lounge Reunion shows at Sally O’Brien’s brought Heavy Stud back together for a rippin’ set. Hot diggity, that was pretty great.
