Dogs on Television - CD release - Church, Boston - 6/5


Dogs on Television, is a Boston based band who play kick-ass blues-infused rock. Their tunes are filled with hopeful, but desperate angst, and it is awesome. The structure of the songs are picked from the pockets of deep American blues, but are successfully modified for modern, electric rock. "Dumbstruck #2" is more on the old-timey blues style side while "The Jailer" has more of a Black Crowes emotional but heavy 90's feel with brushes of ol' 70's blues-rock, reminiscent of the Rolling Stones or Steve Winwood.

Dogs on Television is about to put out their first CD this Saturday, June 5. In celebration, DoTV will be hosting a CD Release show at Church, near Fenway Park in Boston. Some really excellent bands will be joining DoTV on the bill such as Jaxon Boom, Blackbutton (who just released a killer CD themselves), and Mikey P and the A Company.

Church -69 Kilmarnock Street Boston - 9pm - $10

Editor's note: I've been listening to DoTV's front-man, James Houlahan for at least 5 years since he was in The Jody Grind and I was always happy to see him come in a the Lizard Lounge Open Mic on Mondays. The album is stellar to the max.

More people should listen to: Ivana XL, live at Sycamore, June 11

Ivana XL is pure talent (a lot of it), and very little organization - a little bit like a female Van Gogh of the NYC scene - or maybe a Syd Barret reincarnation, considering her psychedelic influences and surprising songwriting style, that induces memories of childhood. Ivana finally managed to put out an EP (entitled "Blood") that sounds good (all her most recent releases were just very basic 2 tracks live recordings.) You can listen to some of these tracks here. We've been fans of Ivana for quite some time now and would definitely recommend to listen to her music and see her live, she's playing Sycamore (awesome little venue in Ditmas Park) on June 11.

The Ghost in You Latest Video “Losing Light” Made w/Nintendo DSi

The Ghost in You is Billy Polard. He writes and records all his music on a 4 track cassette recorder. He has made two music videos so far. One featuring animated characters he drew mixed with live action and large cardboard cut out creatures, and his newest video for “Losing Light”, was made entirely by himself on a Nintendo DSi. ‘I think its probably the first full length music video made with a gameboy.’” - From The Open Blog
