A great night of music at Brooklyn’s Bell House with Shonen Knife and opening acts Heavy Cream and The Hard Nips. Full Photo Galleries of the show are coming soon but in the meantime enjoy this slice of the encore as CJ Ramone joins the “Osaka Ramones” for “Pinhead”.

More garage goodness from the Norton Records 25th Anniversary shows (Nov. 10-13 @ Brooklyn’s Bell House). Watch The Sonics rock Northwest fave “The Witch” on the final show day with some Go-Go’ing assistance from The 5678’s.

A Night One Highlight
A super excellent surprise in an evening filled with excellent surprises was The Dex Romweber Duo launching into my all time favorite Who song, “So Sad About Us” from the “Quick One/Happy Jack” album. Pure pop rock perfection already, Dex and sister Sara distill it down to guitar, drums, heart and soul.
Much love to Norton label leaders Billy and Miriam for asking Dex to keep this in the set.
Here’s a small taste of San Francisco’s Rupa And The April Fishes from their headlining gig at Brooklyn’s Bell House on July 16, 2011. On this number, “Eena Meena Deeka”, the diminutive Rupa Marya works up a steam engine’s worth of energy, steering a wacky head-on collision of Memphis Rock-A-Billy and Bollywood jump (Bolly-Billy?) as the audience joins in phonetically. The band is a tight and talented group of musicians from the Bay Area’s Mission District and has evolved from its street busking origins into a full fledged gypsy swing outfit, mixing hot club & Klezmer style jazz with sultry latin & French accents.
More video featuring this insanely fun evening’s opening act, Cyro Baptista And Beat The Donkey, to be posted later this week.
