Sonic Overload 2/9/15

And yet ANOTHER snowstorm. This is getting ridiculous. What’s more ridiculous was listening to one of the local weathermen talking on a radio show last night about how he didn’t believe there was man-made climate change but didn’t want to go into detail. I find it hard to fathom a meteorologist taking that stance, especially since some of them have botched things with the prognostication at times in recent weeks (it’s 8 inches... no, 10 inches... no, 16 inches).

Enough with that. I’m managing to keep ahead of it at least. Thanks to everyone who came down to my 55th birthday show at the Cambridge Elks the other night. If you live around here and skipped it, you really missed out—Dropdead, with Robert Williams from Siege doing a mini-Siege set in addition to their own devastating songs, plus Fuck You Pay Me’s Boston debut and Stranger’s strong goth-tinged punk. And, oh yeah, my old band Shattered Silence played as well and I got through the set without losing my voice or collapsing in a heap. Not bad for an old guy...
