The band is currently active and touring.
Endless Boogie - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Endless Boogie
Outta the gate I gotta say writin' about a release called 'Full House Head' & failin to mention J Geils Band is harder than findin' a white bean in a black cat's ass. Not that I got anything against 'em, hell, the ex-Mr. Faye Dunaway had that ass whoopin' comin' from me in Louisville back 'round 75. And like I told Seth Justman that night too "I got a Hotline for ya, shorty; my fist up side your head". Think It Over indeed, my little Beantown bud.

And while we's is on the subject of a thumpin', how about this new knockout from Endless Boogie what's called 'Full House Head'? It's done got me all riled up! Over the course of more than a decade long career I've watched this bunch morph from mutant hominid bar choogle to luxuriating' in fissions that split open a portal what connected Coloured Balls & Velvet Underground to now redefinin' what Rock IS in the 2nd decade of the 21st Century. The production's spiffier, the rhythm's cagier, the solo's sharper & the singin, witchier. It's comfort y'all, the comfort to rock it both languorously & intricately. This zone is short of pretense & long in talent. Given the breadth of the excellence what's passed through afore, you might spin this & hear everything from Patto note moaners & Groundhogs riffage, to Seeds-like chatter or even goddamn 'Exile era Stones texturalization. But it ain't none of that, cause it can't be. The future is always steeped in the past & originality is invested in those who don't dial it in. And Endless Boogie most certainly walk it like they rock it. This may be called. Full House Head', but you can beat me with a corncob harmonica & call me Magic Dick if the contents therein ain't that of a Royal Flush Jam.
Starbolt 9 - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Starbolt 9
Starbolt 9 is melodious space rock, conceived by stellar frontman Joe Medici. The band's fusion of classic glam rock, post punk and modern Brit-pop has raised more than a few eyebrows, earning them comparisons to legends such as David Bowie, Echo and The Bunnymen and The Verve, and the praise of Sex Pistols founder, Glen Matlock. Medici's dark, ultra-expressive vocals and new romantic lyrical musi...ngs are complimented by the lush, hypnotic guitar lines of Mik Rodriguez, the psychedelic keyboard soundscapes and classical piano embellishments of Jeff Binder, the monstrous, yet precise, bass thunder of Nicky "Beast" Bowman and the solid rhythmic pulse of drummer Patsy Bennett. Starbolt 9 has now become New York City's foremost neo-glam band.
In the classic tradition of the Stones & U2, Starbolt 9 bring a sensational and unique live energy to the stage. They have awed audiences up and down the east coast, from The Mercury Lounge, NYC to The Masquerade in Atlanta. They were recently one of only 25 other artists chosen to participate in the All About Music festival in Nashville, TN. They have played alongside notable artists such as Lady GaGa, The Fiery Furnaces, Slinky Vagabond, We Are The Fury, and Spindrift. They have performed live for 107.7 WACC in Connecticut and 90.3FM WMSC Radio in Montclair, NJ. Starbolt 9 are also featured regularly on 93.30 FM in Argentina.
