But not Bradlees, Lechmere, Building 19, Jordan Mahhhsh, Filenes and the Basement, or Spag's? No Chet & Nat or Shelby Scott in a Snowstorm? No Storrowing or Reverse Curve or Central Artery or Thickly Settled?

I don't get it either. I assume they had Caldor here back when, but they had it lots of places (including the faraway land where I personally grew up) and I never thought of it as an especially Bostonian thing. Anyone wanna explain the reference, if there is one to explain?

There's a band called Lake Street Dive … how about Storrow Dive?

Storrow Drive is too popular to ever play a piddling little show like Boston Calling.

They wont make it to the venue due to the equipment getting the can-opener treatment!

Adam is prepared 24/7/365 thank you very much. He has to be: you never know when someone in this town is going to drive a truck into an overpass or photograph a turkey.

But, OK: Was planning on riding down to the stage in a helicopter carrying a UHaul with its roof sheared off and as we land, a rafter of turkeys bursts out of the back of the truck.

Still working on the music, though.

Ray Flynn has pretty low billing, compared with other mayors. Might've been higher if he was still fronting his tour band, The Pope's Umbrella?

Smiley Face Killer couldn't make it. Per his agent, "Smiley will unfortunately not be able to play Boston Calling, as he will continue not to exist on that day."

Is that the same guy who would have an amp and talk over gospel music in (I think) the 80's ? He's been on my mind lately, which I find very disturbing.

I think it’s the elderly Black gentleman with the Caribbean accent and the frog in his throat who bellows out “Jesus is WHOA! Jesuh SAVE! Jesuh SAVE! Jesus WHOAD!” on the Orange Line. He gets very lathered up into a tizzy. I’ve seen him almost get himself arrested.
