Quiet Desperation presents the 32nd Annual WBCN Rumble!! THURSDAY AT GREAT SCOTT

 The WBCN Rock 'n' Roll Rumble is a timeless tradition in Boston. With the recent demise of WBCN, Rob Potylo has decided to revive the contest, but in a non-traditional fashion. The WBCN Rumble had a reputation to promote local bands in a competitive way through an elimination contest even though they rarely played local music on their station. WBCN has a place in my heart. I don't know what that place looks like, possibly my bedroom at age fifteen listening to Nik Carter's show writing angry notes (that would be folded into hearts) to my friends about what a stupid bastard Nik Carter is and wondering who is picking this music? As grunge died off and corporate America consumed the music business, the station turned to crap and died. The Rumble this Thursday is in celebration of local music and the Boston music community. I will be one of the "judges". Come rejoice with the sounds of:
HUMANWINE
Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

Rob Potylo (Full-band)
KING HELL

Quiet Desperation is a sitcom about the Boston music scene. Check out episode nineteen above.

Great Scott - Allston MA 8pm, 8 bucks, 18+

Interview with Will Etheridge of Eternal Otter Records

will

Will Etheridge, founder of Portland's Eternal Otter Records recently released Death, Rebirth and Transformation, a small collection of vinyl singles performed by Portland locals, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Cerberus Shoal and Blaque Boose. He's been a strong influence of Portland's music scene.

Deli: When you moved to Portland in 2008, what was your first impression of the music scene? What has changed since your arrival?


Will Etheridge: I moved in next door to an old friend of mine, John Fountain, who was a musician involved in the scene and he helped introduce me to a lot of great bands. I was just immediately blown away by the quality of the music. I hosted a radio show in college and now DJ for WSCA 106.1 fm in Portsmouth, so I'm constantly listening to new music - and I honestly believe some of the best stuff is being made in the little city of Portland, Maine.

Laminated Cat with Apples in Stereo and Generationals at the Middle East Downstairs TONIGHT!

laminated cat

Laminated Cat is an eclectic band originally from Boston but says their roots are in Coastal Maine. They carry a sound with includes the strangeness of Daniel Johnston, the rock of The Velvet Underground and the creativity The Flaming Lips. Laminated Cat is just what indie music needs, something completely different. Their songs range from calm space-songs like "Grenadine", a sweet song with light, flowery harmonic vocals to the hard-hitting, ingeniously written "Kill 'em Shorty" with angry keys, angst-ridden 70's garage guitar and creepy, desperate vocals. Laminated Cat is playing tonight with Generationals and the m'f'in' Apples in Stereo at the Middle East Downstairs. I highly, highly recommend this show. Honestly, Laminated Cat is one of the best bands I've heard since I started the Deli New England.
