This is a poster for the show we are playing with our dear friends Marconi and Eldridge Rodriguez a week from tomorrow at Great Scott (1.15). The “Bon Boys” will provide “DJ sets” at various points during the evening. KPH promises to only play the new jack swing stuff. Davd was unavailable for comment, which surprised us all. Oh right, so, the Bon Savants will be playing their first Boston show in “a while.” All of the parts and people will be the same, though tempered by experiences in places like Berkeley, Brooklyn, undisclosed locations elsewhere in NY, as well as trusted local spots in the greater Boston metropolitan area. And Florida! What have we been up to in the interim? Well, why not come to Great Scott a week from tomorrow and learn the answers to questions you haven’t had a chance to ask in person! In the interest of time, please keep your questions in T/F format. If there is time, we will say more than “true” or “false.” If there is not, Carl will handle all other inquiries, as is his custom.
There is a rumor that “bootleg copies” of the as-yet-unreleased second Bon Savants album will be available, which is pretty cool, ’cause it’s a damn fine collection of songs and you really should be hearing them in the privacy of your own preferred listening environment already. I mean, the Wrens kinda have this wait a really long time to release another album thing down as their own schtick and while we clearly have nothing against stealing from any number of our heroes, you really have to draw the line somewhere.
We are all looking forward to seeing you and hope you have been in good health during our respective times apart.
