Boston Bands Bonanza

Three of my favorite Boston bands have shows coming up in Cambridge at the Lizard Lounge in the next few weeks. Sparkola is celebrating the release of their second album Handclaps and Slapbacks on the 24th. Rose Polenzani has a month-long residency at the Lounge every Tuesday throughout November and the really good news about that is she’ll be joined by a full band. She does the solo singer/songwriter thing very well but after a CD Release party a few years ago with a full band, I’ve always hoped she’d be able to do more shows with other people on stage. The So and So’s are also celebrating their first CD Release party (Give Me Drama) with four nights in a row at the Lizard Lounge Wednesday, November 19th through Saturday, November 22nd.

If any of these shows interest you, let me know if you’d like to join me and other pals.
