(Photos by Roger Farrington) BOSTON MUSIC MASSACRE @ Hard Rock Caf6 August 2 by Sal Giarratani You know sometimes when you go clubbing and you hear one great band and the other that is at best so-so? Well, on Friday, June 27th, there were two great bands playing at O'Brien's in Lynn that rocked the house down, Beawolfe and Red Ball Jet. They both were incredible and these two bands will be playing together again at the Hard Rock Caf6 at Quincy Market on Saturday, August 2"d. The event is dubbed the "Boston Music Massacre." The two bands will go on stage that evening but before that, there will be a number of youth bands. The Boston Music Massacre is sponsored by Next Genera- tion Productions. It is a Beawolfe long day with youth bands performing with Zombie themes, face painting and games. Don't miss seeing Beawolfe and Red Ball Jet. It will be a great day to get zombie- fled to some great sounding music. The electrifying Dora Petrosino guarantees you will have a great time. He told me so. Tavares R&B, funk, and soul music legends Tavares, the Fab Four stylings of Beatlejuice, a dance night with Stardust, and the classic sounds of Charlie Thomas' Drifters will enter- tain music fans of all ages as the Dorothy Curran Wednes- day Night Concert Series returns to City Hall Plaza from July 16th through August 20th. Now celebrating 42 years as Boston's longest-running outdoor concert series, these performances bring four sum- mer nights of great entertainment to this unique venue located in the heart of the city. All shows begin at 7:00 pro. The series is presented by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partner- ship with title sponsor Bank of America. Additional support is provided by media sponsor the Boston Herald and night sponsor Michael Francis Cahill Fund/City of Boston. The series kicks off July 16th with New Bedford's own Tavares, one of the most memorable soul groups of the '70s and '80s. Many of their instantly recognizable international hits, such as "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel" and "More Than A Woman," have become classics. On July 23'd the series will welcome Beatlejuice, New England's preeminent tribute to the Beatles, for a night of some of the most memorable rock and roll ever recorded. On August 6th City Hall Plaza favorite Stardust returns for the Decades of Dance Party feature dance floor hits from the 1960s through today. The series closes August 20th with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Charlie Thomas performing such Drifters classics as "Dance With Me," "This Magic Moment," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Under The Boardwalk," and more.
