I’m back; The Willowz brief feature and tonight at O’Leaver’s; Neva Dinova/Mayday at Sokol…

Category: Blog — @ 12:40 pm August 13, 2005

Well I’m back from my journeys — Cape Cod, to be exact — and have little to show for it but my tan and about a half-dozen new CD reviews that’ll be going online on a daily basis starting Monday. Before I left, I wrote a handful of features, none of which I had time to put online (though all are supposed to be in The Reader, I haven’t had a chance to pick one up yet). The first one that I’m unveiling is a mega-brief interview with The Willowz (read it here). Lead singer Richie Follin didn’t have much to say, and I could only make out about half of what he did say because of the poor cell connection. Cell phones have been a blessing and a curse for music journalists — a blessing in that it makes artists available like never before since they can call from the van en route to the next gig; a curse in that the connection quality is almost always poor (or the cells are unreachable altogether). I heard about every third word Richie said, but gleaned enough from our brief chat to put this micro-story together, for what it’s worth.

The Willowz play at O’Leaver’s tonight with The Upsets, starting at around 9:30 (only $5). It’ll be interesting to see what kind of draw this show attracts since Neva Dinova, Mayday and Doris Henson are playing at Sokol Underground tonight for just $7.

Tomorrow, in a vane effort to get this stuff online, look for an interview with the One Percent boys, unless it gets pre-empted by a Willowz review (which is very likely).
