In Defense of Dorchester

If you haven't seen the Street Dogs, from Boston, then TJ, you. They were here in DC last night at the Black Cat, with the freakin' old Adolescents. Yes, they played "Amoeba" but besides that, they weren't as good as they were last summer. However, the Dogs were blazing last night. We were right on Marcus' (guitar) monitor the whole set, I lent him my green Red Sox hat and he put it on for "Back to the World," and the best moment? Getting up on stage to sing part of "Borstal Breakout" with Mike McColgan. They cover that old Sham 69 song, changing the chorus to "Gonna be a Boston Breakout," and always close with it...awesome. They also did a great Bad Brains cover of "Rise Above," which of course DC loved. A great set, but too short, 13 songs in all. Mike said when they come back around in the fall with the Bouncing Souls, they should be playing a longer set. Showed Mike a picture of My Wife and Kid, since he met her two years ago when she was pregnant. Got some great pics with my phone and will post them as soon as I figure out how to upload them from phone to computer. Angels in Boston tonight- we need to start pushing this lead back up again...
