Rumble gets buzz back; semis lineup confirmed

Gave a quick shout out to Boston Band Crush and Ryan's Smashing Life in my Hotline column today, two blogs which along with Twitter updates have enhanced this year's BCN Rumble. The whole thing seems more alive this year, and the ambitious coverage and immediate reactions (videos, recaps, etc.) by BBC and RSL is probably the result.

And to update my piece: The Have Nots (Thursday) and Destruct-a-thon (Friday) are the two Wild Card winners, announced last night on BCN's Boston Emissions show. Moving on then...

The semis lineup:
Thursday, April 16
The Have Nots 9:30-10:00
Sarah RabDAU and Self-Employed Assassins 10:30-11:00
The Lights Out 11:30-12:00
Gene Dante and the Future Starlets 12:30-1:00

Friday, April 17
Destruct-a-thon 9:30-10:00
The Luxury 10:30-11:00
The Dirty Truckers 11:30-12:00
Gravehaven 12:30-1:00

I like the Lights Out in night one, then Gravehaven or the Luxury in the second stint. We'll see.


  1. Can't believe the Motion Sick isn't in the semis.

  2. Thanks. This is how these things go I guess. I thought we played well and we ended up having an awesome time with a massive crowd including tons of people that couldn't get in...but, the scores came up as they did and we were out.
