Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys return to talk about their upcoming shows at Alchemy and Once Somerville, which feature some amazing bands performing with them. We also look to the kinds of movies they’d like to do tribute shows for.
Jazz musician Mary George calls in to give us the background of a new show she has this weekend entitled “Love You Forever: A Celebration of Mothers In Music” at the Burren Backroom at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.
“Love You Forever” is a show about motherhood. Hearkening back to the title of the popular children’s book, this show illuminates the idea that motherhood is not an impediment to creating music, but a source of deep inspiration.
Mike and Tyler from the band Worm continue the show previews with an event at the C Note in Hull in August. Featuring Gang Green, The Dogmatics, Diablogato, Antibodies, Hardwired, and Worm, the show has a lot of local businesses sponsoring it. We talk about the art of show booking, what do be wary for and how to secure support of local businesses.
Comic creator Tim Jones wraps up the show with a look at his comic strip Sour Grapes, which is now available in 20 newspapers in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Tim talks about the characters and how they’ve grown beyond what he originally envisioned. He shares some tips on pitching comics to newspapers and the best ways to get people’s attention.
