Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

I'll bet I have friends attending that, Dean.
  Fri. 7/11/14 12:22pm Dean:

The venue is pretty cool. I heard Brotzmann and Nilssen-Love there a few months ago. The restaurant is abuzz at the street level, and the tiny performance space is upstairs, but not fully enclosed. I can't imagine what the diners will think of ROVA blasting out from above.

@ holland, FWIW -- From something I was looking at:

"It's a wonderful thing, a woman laughing. They forget themselves. They give themselves up, on a plate. Personally, I think making them laugh is as important as making them climax."

"Both at the same time is difficult."

"I grant you. Unless you're hilarious."

You see, there's been a clamor for it.

Mr Whitfield apparently worked the counter at my favorite local record store during my formative years. I was oblivious.

Apologies if I've already rolled out this "story."

Yeah, they were in here a few years ago, too. I think I like them, but haven't heard much.

@holland oats: The mighty Record Exchange, in Salem, Mass. Still there, though it's been forever since I walked in.

I'm using some of the extra minutes I'm allowed to re-include the track.

Speaking of record stores, any recommendations for D.C.? I'll be there later this month.

Great show, Uncle Michael..have a great weekend! Looking forward to Loss Leaders next week!
Avatar Fri. 7/11/14 3:00pm Jeff Golick:

Ah, route 1. Always a road too far, for me. The other formative place was Newbury Comics, predictably enough, the one down Mass Ave.

Providence was a record-shop-lover's dream back then, too.

Great great show, Uncle Michael. Thanks, as ever!
