Posted in: News Items by Michael Iafrate on July 7, 2011

This just in, from The Onion:

NEW YORK—In a stunning reversal of their long-stated reluctance to take it, members of heavy-metal band Twisted Sister announced Monday that, after 24 years of fervent refusal, they are now willing to take it. “I acknowledge that we promised not to take it anymore, but things change. The world is a different place today, and with that in mind, we would like to go on record as saying that, starting right now, we are going to take it,” read a statement released by the band’s lead singer, Dee Snider. “To clarify, we would still prefer not to take it, but as of now, taking it is an option that we would be open to. That is all.” Bassist Mark “the Animal” Mendoza also stated that, in regards to what he wants to do with his life, he no longer solely wants to rock, but would instead prefer doing other things, such as raising a family and working as a claims adjuster in Rye, NY.

The Raina at The Underground in NYC on Friday

Posted in: General by Tom Beaudoin on July 7, 2011

I play bass in The Raina and we are playing this Friday 8 July in New York City. If you’re in the neighborhood, come see us at The Underground, in Manhattan, at 107th and Broadway, 10pm to midnight. A mix of originals and covers, and lots of who-knows-where-this-might-go rock and roll improvisation.
