Kick Out The Jams this Thursday!!
GHOULS IN THE GARAGE crashes TT's in Central Square on the Third Thursday of every month, digging up an orgy of mind-blowing tracks from rock's rawest cemetery!

DJs Mary Widow and J. Cannibal spin RAW & RARE 60s punk, garage, hard psych, psychobilly and scuzz. From The Sonics to The Cramps and beyond, party like it's 1969 with blown out cuts from the fiercest animals in rock n roll!

Plus, Terri will be pouring in the lounge to fuel your Thursday thirst.

We were so psyched to see how many people got their stomp on last month that we're adding go-go girls this time around to keep that dancefloor energy going. We're also bringing more films to project and, since the Sox season is over, we'll also have cult classics playing on the tv over by the bar.

Cheap pool, stiff drinks and vintage horror flicks projected all night long! 18+ and only five bucks!!!Flyer under CutCollapse )

amazing recording deal, march 1st through 11th
From now until March 11th The Milkhouse is offering full 10-hour lockouts for only $100.

That's less than 1/3 of our normal day rate, and it's way beyond a awesome deal. Sessions will be booked on a first-come, first-serve basis and have been going FAST. We will never be running this promotion again, so even if you're not ready to record a whole album, it might not be a bad idea to get in and record what you've got while the rates are so low.

Interested? Call me. (phone is preferred over email due to the rate at which sessions are getting booked)

Mostly Kings is a trio based out of the greater Boston area. The band combines rock with elements of blues, funk, and folk. We formed in early 2006, and completed a three song demo this fall. We have been constantly writing new material and are in the process of booking many shows. Lets bring some rock! Be our friend! E-mail us at: mostlykings@gmail.com

Auditions! Boston!
Auditions for: FORBIDDEN ZONE – LIVE!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Forbidden Zone is coming to the stage! The 1980 cult classic written by Richard Elfman (Freeway) and composed by and featuring his brother Danny Elfman (Nightmare before Christmas, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure) is being debuted this year live and on stage for the very first time. This is the official(Elfman approved!) premiere of Forbidden Zone. The production team for this performance is so excited to have the opportunity to bring Forbidden Zone to the stage. We are seeking equally enthusiastic performers to help us bring it to life.

Oingo Boingo fans and midnight movie mavens will love this bizarre black-and-white feature packed with music, madness, and members of the Elfman clan. The story revolves around the Hercules family, who live in a house that just happens to hide a secret entrance to the Sixth Dimension in the basement. When daughter Frenchy skips school one afternoon, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to the forbidden door, and winds up a prisoner in this alternate world. King Fausto, the diminutive leader of the Sixth Dimension, is enamored with the beautiful young Frenchy and keeps her in the same cell as his favorite concubines, despite the disapproval of Queen Doris. Frenchy's brother, Flash, follows her into the Forbidden Zone with Gramps in tow, intending to save her, but they too are captured and must call school chum Squeezit for help. Squeezit tries to assist, but ends up captured and decapitated by Satan, though this development doesn't keep his disembodied noggin from flying about and informing King Fausto that the Queen is planning to dispose of his beloved Frenchy. The appearance of the King's first wife and the kidnapping of his topless daughter further confuse matters, but everything is wrapped up neatly with an elaborate song and dance number at the conclusion. ~ Fred Beldin, All Movie Guide (http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/movie.html?v_id=18170)

We are currently casting performers who can carry a tune, dance a few steps and pull off a joke. We are looking for a solid and committed cast, as this show will be running from November –March with several breaks. Performances will be in New England, primarily in Boston and Derry N.H. Actors will be compensated. This production is non-equity.
Audition Info:
When: Sunday June 11th 2pm.
Where: 1171 Boylston St. Apt 12. Boston, Ma
What to prepare:

- A brief (1 min) comedic monologue, either from the film(we will have a few sides available)or one that you already know and are comfortable with.
- 16 bars of your favorite tune. The music is by Danny Elfman (Oingo Boingo, The Nightmare Before Xmas, Beetlejuice) so anything jazzy and upbeat would be appreciated. **the soundtrack is available on Itunes and local stores**
- There will be a short dance audition. Please wear something that allows for movement.
Any Questions, please contact:

Are you a high-school student looking to dress up in your finest vintage/mod/retro getup for prom? Are you combing thrift stores and scanning pictures from the 50s and 60s for inspiration? I'm a writer for the Boston Globe and I'm looking for Boston-area high-school students who are trying to find vintage/mod/retro prom dresses and tuxes/suits. If you're going for that look THIS year for either a junior or senior prom, please email me your contact info at rhankinson@globe.com

Thanks for your help!

Newbury Comics going down in flames...
This may just be the Nashua, NH, store, but I'm not sure. Word from the inside (know a kid who just left working at newby's) is that Newbury Comics has all of their cds and dvds on sale for 20% off the labeled price because they want to get rid of the cds/movies and sell only the other crap they have there. Basically they want to turn it into a Spencers/Hot Topic type of place.

This is bullshit.

I guess I'll have to check out Bull Moose since they're the only other place you can find really good cds. Apparently they're even cheaper than Newby's.
