Finally! Punk rock is back in Wormtown this weekend. Friday Dec. 5, The Pathetics will be playing their new Christmas song at The Lucky Dog. Now you know that means fun. The Bees Knees are headlining, so you get a diverse evening of music for sure.
Earlier this week I mentioned WCUW is looking for cash,and over at Ralph's on Friday, The Blues Dept is holding a benefit for the station featuring Ms Marci and the Lovesick Hounds.I had the opportunity to interview her years ago on WDOA and she was one of the founding members of the Worcester rock n roll scene in the 60's. There was even the rumor that when Jimi Hendrix played Clark University back then, she disappeared with him for few days after the show. And she's also shared the stage with Pinetop Perkins and Muddy Waters, so you see, she's the real deal.
Then on Saturday at The Hotel Vernon , yes it's an honest to good all punk bands- all night long show. With all the bands I have been calling lazy young punks for the past month playing together. Can't Kill Katie, Hoodrat, Slitstich, (found a bass player?)
The Numbskulls, and The Pity Whores. That ought to fill your tank with high octane real rock to keep you going through the holidays.
