The first Friday in June was packed with music on BumbleBee Brunch. We heard brand new tracks from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Jungle, Nikki Lane, and Turnover. "Cool It Down" is the first LP for Yeah Yeah Yeahs since 2013's "Mosquito" and the first we've heard from bandleader Karen O since her wonderful 2019 collaboration with Danger Mouse ("Lux Prima.") If you haven't heard "Lux Prima" yet go track it down. You won't be sorry! "Cool It Down" drops 9/30/2022 on the Secretly Canadian label.
As always the Friday brunch table was brimming with Boston offerings with music from Little Fuss, The Forest Effect, Shiverlane, Violet Nox, and RoseR, as well as a visit to Cape Cod for a new single from The Ticks and a trip up to Portland, Maine for a new song from Tiger Bomb! We also heard two tunes from a new compilation CD from Boston label Rum Bar Records: "Rebel Rousers Round 2!"
This 26-track collection of tunes from Boston and beyond is just the thing to kick-off your Summer soundtrack and is available for FREE (or whatever you'd like pay) over on the Rum Bar Records Bandcamp page. We played "The Continuing Story Of Arthur Duffy" by Quincy's The Gypsy Moths (Featuring Jen D'Angora) and "The Reckoning Is Here" by Lonely Leesa & The Lost Cowboys.
Speaking of Lonely Leesa & The Lost Cowboys, they are part of a HUGE show later this month at Magic Room in Norwood. There is so much music planned for this event that we had to spread it out over TWO nights! The Concert for Ukraine will benefit the Women And Children Relief Fund. Friday night's lineup includes The Dogmatics, Cold Expectaions, Key Of Caustic, Field Day, and Tsunami Of Sound. I will be your special guest hostess for the evening on Friday June 24th. Then on Saturday June 25th join us again for Gene Dante & The Future Starlets, Smitt E. Smitty & The Feztones, Baabes, Modern Day Idols, and Lonely Leesa & The Lost Cowboys. ChaChi Loprete (WBCN and "Breakfast with the Beatles" on WUMB) is your guest host for the Saturday festivities. Magic Room is right off the Norwood Automile with plenty of FREE parking! Come-out and hear some great Boston music while supporting a great cause! Click HERE for more info and tickets!
