Here are a couple of songs by The World Famous Dirt Mall Rock & Roll Band for your listening pleasure. These recordings were started during the sessions for the “Pacifuego” album. They didn’t really fit with that record’s sound. They do, however, sound pretty good with each other. Neat!
Combining the brilliant local rock scene of Boston with a healthy dose of nostalgia, Nate Rogers and Boston Band Crush present MIXTAPE, Boston’s newest musical series, wherein the bands of greater Boston pay tribute not to an individual band or artist but to a full and complete year of music.
Launched in 2009, One Night Band is a day-long music experiment in which 40 selected Boston musicians are randomly shuffled into bands of five on a Saturday morning. These newly formed bands must prepare a four-song set (including one cover) to play that night in front of an audience at legendary Cambridge rock club the Middle East. The event is produced by Boston Band Crush, a local blog covering Boston music.
All proceeds from the 2010 event will again benefit ZUMIX, a local youth music program whose mission is “Empowered youth, who use music to make strong positive change in their lives, their communities, and the world.”
