Gloomy Sunday washed out in slush finds Echo & the Bunnymen performing our Allston party playpen for 240 of our closest friends. Been looking forward to this since it was just a rumor-turned-secret, and now another epic weekend is capped off with Will Clarks and the potential of hearing "The Killing Moon" in a tidy intimate rock club. Here's what I wrote in the Great Scott mailer on Thursday:
SUNDAY 10.18.09 ::: Echo & The Bunnymen, with DJ Carbo as part of The Fenway Recordings Session
Boy oh boy, Sunday nights have come a long way since Ben Sisto was booking weird noise shit, huh? Well, by now you've heard about this one, as UK post-punk legends Echo & the Bunnymen roll up to our little clubhouse and do it clean for an elite batch of ticket-gulping hipsters. Well, shit. Great Scott has come along way since I booked the 8mm Fuzz be *perform as* Echo & the Bunnymen on Halloween a few years ago, huh?
I wonder what the ghost of Doug Flutie thinks about all this? For promotional purposes, I should probably note that Echo has new album out, "The Fountain," and the lead single, "Think I Need It To," is really not half bad, and the band will return to the House of Blues in November, and that singer Ian McCollough - oh fuck it, you knew whether or not you were going to this within 15 minutes of the on-sale. Hope you got in, should be a motherfucker hearing "The Killing Moon" live in this room. Yowza. 18+ 9pm SOLD OUT
