The CD release party for Why Do
We Go to War?
is becoming a reality. Willie “Loco” Alexander
and Barbara Koen are opening for me on Saturday, September 18, at the
Blackburn Performing Arts in Gloucester. This show is also being billed
as the first Noise 30th Anniversary Party. I say “first”
because we are planning to have one each month for the next year. Each
party will be run by a different member of the Noise staff—so far
in October DJ Matthew Griffen is planning a punk show in Worcester,
then Nancy Neon displays old-school Boston garage/punk, in December
Kevin Finn will share his birthday with his favorite area bands, and
Frank Strom will have a show in January. A whole year of 30th
anniversary parties!

THE SUMMER OF 2010

Looking back on the summer—it was
a lot of work—but most of it was the good kind of work. I played at
a number of farmers’ markets—Georgetown, Rowley, and Merrimac. At
these shows I would interview each vendor and on the spot come up with
a jingle for their business, then sing to the crowd. Some came out good,
some were flops. One jingle became very popular and landed on TV—it
was for Fat Belly Barbeque—a family-owned business that drives their
converted mail truck around to farmers markets on the weekend. I’d
also have a theme song for each farmers’ market. If you know the Beatles’
fan club Christmas song, “Christmas Time is Here Again,” just sing,
“Georgetown Farmers’ Market Day” to the tune and you’ll get
the idea. It’s good to have a song like that to pull together a four-hour
gig.
