Local joint gets a makeover
Do you pine for the days of JD's and Friends? Well, dry your tears, kids. Grove Street is here.
The old Imparts store at 1576 Grove St. has had a makeover. Limping along for the last couple of years, it was host to some good shows, but lacked a central vision. On Friday, March 31, the venue officially opens its remodeled doors as Grove Street with the help of Six Feet Under's Crossroads to Armageddon Tour. SFU will be bringing their friends Sworn Enemy, Animosity, Job For A Cowboy and Thine Eyes Bleed, so make sure you bring yours. It's not a cheap night at 15 simoleans per, but, really, can you really put a price on death metal? This is an all-ages show, full bar with ID, so grab your demon-lubbin' grannies and/or gradeschoolers and get to Grove Street.
Rocking the Hall of Fame
2005 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees included Black Sabbath (the O.O. BS, not the R.J.D.), the Sex Pistols and Blondie among others. At the 21st annual induction ceremony, two former Blondie members pleaded (unsuccessfully) to perform "Heart of Glass," "Rapture" and "Call Me." Black Sabbath let Metallica mosh out "Iron Man" and "Hole In The Sky." And Johnny Rotten, although not present, made his presence felt: from the Pistols' Web site came this missive (Rotten's rotten misspellings left misspelled): "Next to the Sex Pistols, rock and roll and that Hall of Fame is a piss stain. Your museum, urine in wine. We're not coming. Fame at $25,000 if we paid for a table, or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery, goes to a nonprofit organization selling us a load of old famous. Congradulations. If you voted for us, hope you noted your reasons. Your anonymous as judges, but your still music industry people. We're not coming. Your not paying attention."
