When you grow up in one of the neighborhoods in Boston…..or if your raised by someone who did…you learn to carry yourself a certain way. Your accent and cynical nature is truely unique…ohhh and you learn to talk very fast. Boston has the record for the fastest speakers in the …
Brockton has been home to some of the best fighters this world has ever seen, and this weekend Brockton lost one of it’s favorite sons, Goody Petronelli. This was the man who made Marvin Hagler “marvelous”. He was 88 years old…
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the City of Champions.
Many of us don’t remember, but this is a snapshot of a place in time where Kevin White and James Brown helped to calm the black population of Boston after losing MLK to an assassin’s bullet. This concert was almost cancelled out of fear of rioting….but Kevin …
So one of our favorite Patriots Wes Wekler has decided to tie the knot with his girl Anna Burns, Miss Hooters International 2005. We here at Dotrat.com are psyched for Wekler and wish him nothing but good luck. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fXSf0nGq9Po]
It’s time to do a spotlight on a band that is as readily identified with Dorchester as our beloved Street Dogs. Dead Friends was formed in the fall of 2008 and have spent the last 3 years refining their hardcore punk sound. They say all music can invoke an emotion, the Dead Friends sound makes me want to tear down the Mass Pike in a vintage muscle car or pinball through a massive mosh pit.
I had a chance to speak a bit with front man and fellow Dot Rat Mark Doherty today and he’s excited about the future of the band. He mentioned the band is working on a new album entitled “Institutionalized”. They have also managed to grab the #1 spot on the WZLX Boston Emissions Music Poll last week for their song “Stand Up”. You can find that single on iTunes by clicking HERE. The rest of their work can be found HERE.
I think the future is bright for Dead Friends, they are a hard working band with great influences. Keep and eye on them…..
Go grab one of their tshirts with that killer logo…
Here’s a ton of links for the band….
Never Forgive – Never Forget – US Navy Seals
I won’t get mad, I’ll just get even – Bill Belichick
This may sound crazy, but I would actually pay money to hear what Bill has to say before the game against the Giants. Revenge will certainly be the theme….but how he puts it together to motivate the players will epic I’m sure.
