Joe Montanaro kisses Bobby Burg. 
After this photo was made, Joe’s band The Rubs played a set in the basement of Double Door. Fortunately, I had ear plugs. I stood right in front of the stage until something hard and full of alcohol flew out of Joe’s hand and hit my left eye. 
It might have been a beer can, or a shot glass, or who knows what else, so I rubbed my eye and tried to wince out the sudden sting. Then Joe walked up and started hugging me, all the while singing through whatever song The Rubs were playing. Might have been Judy. 
That’s professionalism.

Times are a-changing in the DIY scene. The Young Camelot crew is being evicted from their current space, along with the folks at Animal Kingdom. Plus, rumor has it Multi Kulti got shut down, as well. So it goes — nothing lasts forever except for diamonds. 

Fortunately, Wally World and The Observatory are still kickin’ with some great events in the works for the summer, so expect to see more MG coverage coming out of those haunts in the coming months. For starters, The Lemons are taking their tour van through Wally next week. Message me if you’d like the address of that space (it’s typically kept private to avoid lowly crowds).

To honor our beloved comrades Ding it Yselves, MG Facebook’s latest mixtape DIY or DIE is live now.

Pictured above: Space Blood (an official MG Band to See in 2014), The Hecks, and The Crow Quill Night Owls.

Distractions Distortions 2014 was Medium Gallery’s most exciting project to date and the best party I’ve ever been to. There were 30 bands in 2 nights, indoor smoking, and I glued together a makeshift photo booth the morning of the fest.

Shoutout to she speaks in tongues, who played their second-to-last set before the band’s oncoming hiatus. And big ups to Space Blood, who played their first show ever and destroyed every brain in the room. 

Special thanks to Rob and Matt, for organizing the incredible weekend and letting me do whatever I want. And happy birthday Mike (homeboy hired Ghostbusters to party with us).
