Wormtown Rocks Opens Thursday
The wait will soon be over. The Worcester Art Museum's Who Shot Rock and Roll exhibit presents Wormtown Rocks!! A showing of photographs by local artists shooting bands in the clubs of Worcester. I stopped by yesterday and got a sneak peak of the exhibit and all my favorites are in it. The Odds, The Commandos, The Pathetics to name just a few. It starts at 6pm in the Higgins Education Wing and is free to enter.
After that, the party moves to Beatniks on Park Ave. for Real Wormtown Rock n Roll with The Numbskulls, Worcester's #1 Punk Band for years running, Musclecah, featuring one of the founders of the scene, Cathy Cah, and The Performers, who played tirelessly throughout the late 70's and 80's and are reuniting for this event. Not to be missed. Beatniks is a great new bar that opened last June and also serves food if you're hungry after all this excitement. Parking available on the street and in their lot behind the bar. Admission is $7, with $1 going back to the museum for the Art School.
This is the first time any major organization in the city has embraced the scene we started 32 years ago, and you need to be part of it. So, please do stop by and become part of history.
