8:30 doors / 9:00 show
OldJack return to the their favorite room to fire up the Boston Music Award winning "OldJack's Last Saturdays" residency. Tonight the old soul rock'n'roll show that IS Old Jack shares the carpets with the spooky instrumental guitar based band The Derangers and the psychedelic rock of Cropduster.
Blues guitarist Drew Townson's band, the Derangers (rhymes with "strangers"), are dedicated to playing spooky instrumental themes, encompassing Spaghetti Western, Surf, Spy-Jazz and more. The first original recording by The Derangers was a cinematic western called "Rio Sangre," which was internationally hailed as a standout track. By the early 90's film directors like David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino were also exploring this haunted, reverberant sound in their movies. Drew had always been a fan of original Surf-guitar kings like Dick Dale and The Ventures, along with Duane Eddie and other twangy guitarists, so it was only natural to combine all these influences in to the Derangers' "WesterMental" sound. With Drew's Strat a-blazin' the trio gigged, toured and recorded from 1990 to 2000, Now, after a decade of dormancy, those bad bandidos are BACK! Hide the women and lock up the tequila - The Derangers Ride Again!
Cropduster was born during the early summer of 2007. Co-founders Dave Unger and Greg Hoffman, tired of pushing the boundaries of volume and velocity from their previous bands(Doc Hopper,Random Road Mother et all) decided to go a different route. The search was on for the sound of cough syrup rock. The sound of creepy deeds done in dirty doorways.The sound of distant sirens approaching after the car crash.The lads, with the help of their medication wrote a bunch of songs then searched the asylums for equally demented lunatics to share their vision. Chris Coughlin(North Street, A Confederacy of Dumpsters) joined in on hammond, Stan Day(Oxycontinentals, Melonfarmers, Herb and Sportsmen/Fishermen) torqued up the guitar and Ben Karnavas (Gimme Danger) added the bass . Soon the smell of Nyquil filled the air.
