I just picked up an exceptional book on Boston's jazz history called The Boston Jazz Chronicles - Faces, Places, and Nightlife 1937 - 1962.
The few sections I've read so far are captivating and beautifully recreate this pivotal time in our fair city's transition from an economically depressed backwater to what it is today.

Just wondering if anyone else is attending the satellite broadcast of the DCI Drum Corps World Championships tonight at the Fenway Regal Cinema at 6:30pm? It's also being broadcast to other movie theaters via satellite around the Boston area.

Tickets are available online at http://www.dci.org/cinema

I'll be rooting for the home team - The Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps.
They've been around since 1940 and they rock!

Unreliable Narrator Theater Group announces UN-Vaudeville, a showcase of independent artists from the comedy, music, theater, and burlesque scenes of the Greater Boston area. It's happening Tuesday, March 30 at 8 PM at Johnny D's in Davis Square for a $10 cover.

This spectacular evening will be hosted by K’Tharr, an interstellar warrior-bunny last seen in 2009’s production of "Paranormal." It is a fundraiser for the next Unreliable Narrator production, a sci-fi musical comedy in August. In addition to scenes from the August show, "UN-Vaudeville" will include:

Morgan Shaker is prominent among the young creatives at the Whitehaus – the Jamaica Plain musician, poet, and artist co-op known for its DIY philosophy and positive “yes wave” attitude. One of many musicians under that roof, he often takes a lead role as organizer and promoter of events. Friendly and thoughtful, he’s frequently called upon to share his philosophy about what the Whitehaus Family is and does.

Right now, Morgan Shaker is busy promoting Blastfest III, March 20th, at the Cambridge YMCA. It’s an equinox celebration that runs 11 AM to 11 PM and features the talents of over two dozen acts. It’s also all ages show, and admission is $5 to $10 “on a sliding scale…no one refused”– a remarkable bargain for twelve hours of entertainment. Once admitted, you may come and go as you please.

An improbably wide variety of musical styles will be represented. Taken collectively, these dissimilar sounds contribute to Blastfest’s “Weird New America” vibe. Blastfest is an unusual event for sure, but it’s also part of a tradition of independent event promoting–and simply independent doing–that is dear to a virtual community of like-minded artists worldwide.

Although Neil Young Trunk Show, a hard-rocking performance movie directed by Jonathan Demme, only recently had its local premier at Coolidge Corner Theatre, it will be on DVD and Blu-ray before you know it. If you want to catch this film in a theater before then, one of the few places in the country to do so is Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge. There, starting March 19, it will run for one week. Read local review of Neil Young Trunk Show.

I was a big fan of the Dropkick Murphys hit and Red Sox fight song "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" which also found its way to the soundtrack for The Departed (on YouTube here.) Their more recent effort from this summer, which they wrote for Improper Bostonian is called "The Chosen Few" and has been derided as "sorta like drunken karaoke." What do you think? Lyrics after the break.

So I know this guy Jim Infantino. I met him in the late 80s when I managed a coffee house and slummed around with folk musicians. Twenty years on, he's a band now called Jim's Big Ego (see http://www.bigego.com ) An ego so big it needs three people on stage to get all that amazing music out there. He's (They've) got a new album coming out, and I figured I'd share it here because there are some folks who will really totally dig his political message and the music.

The Dropkick Murphys I'm Shipping Up To Boston was a ready made fight song for the Red Sox during the championship run, and it also gave some punch and local flavor to Scorsese's Boston-based crime thriller, The Departed.

So there he was: John Mellencamp, in the flesh, about 10 feet away from me, at the Copley Square Farmers Market. I knew he'd be there. I had come to see him. But, I must admit, my imagination isn't usually so far off from the reality...
