Now here’s the info on the show:

 

PGB is hosting a charity fundraiser at The Rosebud Bar in Davis Square to benefit the victims of the recent Tohoku-Pacific Ocean earthquake in Japan. Local bands Gozu, Black Thai, Phantom Glue, and Cocked ‘N Loaded have been tapped to provide the evening’s entertainment, and local companies and organizations have generously contributed prizes for a raffle, all designed to raise as much money as possible for the victims of the natural disasters that struck Japan in March of 2011.

Around the northern coastal region of Tohoku, the Japanese government reported that 2,852 buildings were destroyed and over 40,000 were damaged either by earthquakes, tsunami, or fire. The tsunami waves caused the greatest destruction – an estimated 5,000 houses remain inundated with water in the Iwate prefecture, 2,000 houses were washed away in the Sendai city of Miyagi, and 1,800 houses were destroyed in nearby Fukushima. The count of houses destroyed by these disasters is also expected to increase as government assessment teams gain additional access to the affected areas.

 

Black Thai – “Satan’s Toolshed” – Blood From On High

100% of the proceeds of this fundraiser will be donated to The Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, a charity that disperses contributions to various organizations on the front lines of relief and recovery in Tohoku. This organization was chosen to ensure that the entirety of the funds raised will be going directly to the people in Japan who need it most, rather than get tied up in costly administrative fees. CLICK HERE for more information on The Japan Society’s relief efforts.

In the spirit of charity, The Rosebud has been generous enough to donate their venue free of charge for the benefit. Furthermore, in a near-unprecedented outpouring of generosity, the bartenders have agreed to donate their tips to the cause as well! In addition, several companies, including TD Bank North America, have agreed to make direct financial donations to increase the final amount of money that will be raised by this benefit.

The event’s entertainment will be provided by four of PGB’s favorite bands, each taking time out of their busy schedules to donate their efforts to the cause. Gozu is currently working on their follow up album to their critically acclaimed debut Locust Season, available via Small Stone Records. Cocked ‘n’ Loaded is also in the writing process, expect a new release in early 2012. Black Thai has just released a split 10″ Picture Disc with Moth Eater, courtesy of Play The Assassin Records. Phantom Glue is currently recording their second album with Converge‘s Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studios in Salem. This is going to be a heavy show – some serious grooves, a lot of heads banging, a little bit of shredding, and a ton of uncontained rock spilling out across the masses.

As if things couldn’t get better with this incredible bill of bands and unbelievable raffle, we’re proud to announce that tickets for this show will be only $5!!!

Yes. You read that correctly. 5 bucks. For this lineup.

So hey – do us a favor. If you’re getting to see all these amazing bands for such a ridiculously low price, do your part to donate a little chunk of change by buying plenty of raffle tickets and tipping the hell out of your bartenders. A couple bucks here and there might not seem like much, but it all adds up, and there are a lot of people on the other side of the world who could really use our help right now.

We’ll have some surprise guests roaming through the audience with raffle tickets, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to contribute – and potentially win some amazing stuff! Look, it’s charity – we’d rather have you voluntarily donate some of your hard-earned cash than force you to pay a steep cover at the door just to get into what we think is going to be a pretty awesome event. If you agree with us, show it – in cash!

 


Hope you’re as excited as we are – see you on Friday!

The 8th Annual Rock The Village Music & Style Show blew the roof off of the Brighton Music Hall thanks to some funked-out local bands and some fierce local styles. The night featured the latest fashions from Allston merchants like Stingray Body Art, Orchard Skate Shop, Green Side Up Gallery, Buffalo Exchange, and more! The fashion show itself was sandwiched between incredible sets by The Force and The Few, with pop-rockers Bonfire Bandit opening up the night.

Check out these amazing photos from fellow Allstonian JustBill, and for a little bonus we’ve included video from The Few’s set, featuring their brand new song “Push You Down!”

Pete’s First 11 of ‘11: 2011 Show Reviews – Della Mae @ Club Passim, 2/13

by Pete on May.11, 2011, under Audio, Live Shows, News, Reviews, Video

If Pete could write about each and every show he sees without jeopardizing his employment status or mental health, he would totally do it. Fortunately for him, he knows better. Fortunately for us, he is just obsessive and irresponsible enough to try it anyway. Ever the enablers, we are posting recaps of each of the first eleven shows that Petey hit in 2011.

To see the rest of Pete’s First 11 of ‘11, click here!


Shows one-through-ten were riddled with tags like indie rock, power pop, synth pop, pop punk, shoegaze-y punk, Americana and, yes, metalcore. By now, I figured it was time to include a genre that would at least be recognizable by name to the half-dozen 60-something Jewish relatives that comprise my core readership (Shalom, gang!).

So, for outing #11 of 2011, I went to the Winter Campfire Festival at Club Passim to see Boston-based bluegrass up-and-comers Della Mae (I guess if I really wanted to get some props at the next bar mitzvah I could have gone to Fiddler On The Roof. Oh well).



If you’re into bluegrass, then you probably already know that Della Mae was genetically engineered in a laboratory below the Appalachian Mountains. Imbued with gunslinger solo chops and buttermilk harmonies, the fierce five were originally grown for political assassinations, jewel heists and the like. Realizing that their talents were better suited for pickin’ an’ a-singin’ than robbin’ an’ a-killin’, the girls enraged their engineers and delighted music fans everywhere by forming a bluegrass supergroup… Okay, so I embellished a little, but you get the idea: Della Mae ain’t nuttin to fuck with.

Although they’ve played countless tour gigs, festivals and award shows, Della Mae blazed some new trails for themselves at the Winter Campfire show. For starters, it was their first gig with singer/guitarist Celia Woodsmith. And whereas most bands might hope that their newest member can remember their songs well enough to get through that first show, Della Mae solved this concern by learning an entirely new batch of songs for the gig.

It would appear that the band intends for Woodsmith to be much more than just “the new guitar player.” Standing center stage and singing lead on nearly every song (some of which were identified as songs that she had written), Woodsmith quickly established herself as a major cornerstone of the new-look Della Mae. It seems like a good fit. A soul-ar flare burst from her sunny voice as she regaled the house with tails of Big Old Women From San Anton’ (“why you been gone so long?”) and Bottles of Whiskey (“and a bag of shame”). Her disposition was as bright as her melodies; a solemn country waltz called “I Built This Heart” was the only number not sung with a smile.

During each chorus, the voices of Jenni Lyn Gardner and Grace Van’t Hof (who has since left the band to pursue other projects) flanked Woodsmith in a smooth formation that would be the envy of migratory geese. Between harmonies, Gardner (mandolin) and Van’t Hof (banjo) traded Derby-speed solos with reigning National Fiddle Champion Kimber Ludiker while Amanda Jean Kowalski drove the pace on her standup bass.

Della Mae’s debut full-length is due out in July, but judging from how studio-ready they sounded in mid-February, I’m guessing that most of the time between will be spent deciding which cowboy boots to wear in the press photos.

And the winner is… John Powhida International Airport! J-Po took the 2011 Rock & Roll Rumble crown in the face of some serious competition thanks to innovative, tongue-in-cheek songwriting, and some serious chops laid down by each and every band member on the stage! These guys left the crowd in stitches – laughing uproariously and cheering wildly – every mind in TT’s a little more blown than it was when they entered the club.

We gotta give some serious love to OldJack and Spirit Kid for leaving it all on the stage and giving J-Po & crew a real run for their money! Throughout the entire Rumble OldJack left the crowd breathless, and the Finals were no exception.  Us PGBers were shocked that the judges did not rule in favor of them, it’s a true testament to the quality of music in this city that a band this talented and inspirational finished a competition such as this as a runner-up. Spirit Kid put on a hell of a performance as well – they were perhaps the tightest band on the night, dangerously catchy poppitude indeed! Alas, preparation and hookiness alone are not the keys to victory – no matter how many butts they got shaking in the crowd they were unable to sway the judges in their favor.

We here at PGB would like to extend a big THANK YOU to Rumble Organizer Anngelle Wood for resurrecting such an amazing Boston music tradition out of the ashes of longtime Rumble sponsor WBCN‘s demise. Many thought after the much-loved alternative radio giant crumbled in the shadow of corporate reorganizing that the Rumble, a 30+ year tradition celebrating the best in local Boston bands, would fall by the wayside. Indeed, in 2010 we had no Rumble, further confirming popular opinion that the 31st rendition of this competition back in 2009 would be the last. However, thanks to the hard work chipped in by former ‘BCN DJ Anngelle Wood and her crack team of rumblers it was reborn, moved to beloved Cambridge den of sin TT The Bear’s, and achieved smashing success on each of the 9 nights! So a big congrats to J-Po, a big thanks to Anngelle, and here’s hoping for our Rumble to carry on for years to come!

In what might have been the biggest upset of the 2011 Rock & Roll Rumble, Spirit Kid was awarded the judges vote on night #1 of the semi-finals, over a VERY talented field. Crowd response was clearly in favor of Sidewalk Driver and Mellow Bravo, and DNFMOMD put on a jaw-dropping angst-ridden set that blew minds throughout TT’s. Still, the judges chose the dark horse on this one – a choice that while surprising, was well deserved. Look for Spirit Kid to perform next Friday, 4/22, at the Rumble Finals alongside Friday’s semi-final winner John Powhida International Airport, wild card selection Old Jack, and special guests The Shods.
