Check out performance photos from all of the acts on this wonderful night:
Sometimes you hang out in Harvard Square on a beautiful day and watch bands with your 8-year-old son. Sometimes that boy gets tired. Sometimes you strike a deal with him* to hang out for just two songs from one of your favorite bands. Sometimes, as you’re walking to the T with your little buddy after those two songs, he decides he wants to stick around a little longer and you end up getting to watch a good chunk of The Sheila Divine’s set before everyone goes home happy. Sometimes you have really good days.
* Bribe him with pizza.
Watching an Airport show makes me feel like Benny from the Lego Movie. Just substitute “Airport!” for “Spaceship!” These guys draw from an endless well of perfectly crafted songs about modern life filtered through a ’70s AM Radio transmission.
The Shods. Rock ‘n’ Roll. 25 years of On the Town with Mikey Dee. Good people. Good times.
I’ve seen a lot of great shows at TT’s over the years. This here Friday night of the club’s 40th Anniversary week has been another to remember. What a ridiculous lineup. Who could possibly close out a night that has already seen killer sets by The Gravel Pit, Sidewalk Driver, The Field Effect, Emergency Music, Corin Ashley and Kenny Chambers? What’s that? They’ve got The Sheila Divine coming up next? You can’t be serious. Really? Good golly. I just. This is. I… uh… yeah. Amazing.
