Well, I suppose it’s my Punk too. Not to mention that my Dad definitely doesn’t listen to punk. Furthermore, if he did I would like to think he would punch me in the face for calling an acoustic set “punk”. Anyway…
Tonight at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls) are coming together for an acoustic night with special guest local Jay Allen. The two ol’punks will be rocking the Sex-Doll Tour throughout March in various U.S. cities with their Boston stop ranking in at #5.
Why Should you go to this show?
Taking a page from a great quote directed originally to the New York Dolls, these two bands “played punk before punk had a name.” (Anderman, Boston Globe 2005). That alone should peak your interest.
Expect select tracks from Sex Pistols and New York Dolls favorites along with possibilities coming from Matlock and Sylvains other ventures including Rich Kids and Criminals, respectively. It’s been quite a few years since either of these bands have played in our home town and probably quite a few more before they do again. Not to mention that even when they do come around, the ticket prices are sky high and hard to come by.
This is your chance to check out two punk greats and founding members of both bands in the same place at a reasonable price. Shit, it’s almost like the real thing! Wait a minute, let’s not forget about Jay Allen. This guy is no joke. Anyone in the punk scene around here has heard the name. He, along with his “Arch Criminals” (although it’s not clear they are with him for this show) have been rocking this town for some time now. Hell, even one of my past bands have played with him and as I recall, his set was awesome.
