FAVORITE FRESHMAN: The n00b award around Boston has gotta be Anti-Venom from Allston. If you were ever a Deadguy fan, this fucking shit is so pissed off and matched with perfectly heavy tempo. This is what’s up.
FAVORITE LOCAL MUSICIAN: Colin Conway (drummer) from Death Ray Vision/Soul Remnants. This khed has had my heart for over a decade. We met at the first NE Metal Fest and he was so annoying but in a good way.
I’m glad to know one of the best metal drummers in the world.
FAVORITE MEMORY FROM BOSTON SCENE: When I got so blasted drunk at a party in Allston and decided to ask Choke from Slapshot to do a kegstand with me, or at least hold my legs.
FAVORITE RESIDENT: Jimmy Flynn! He has been our mayor for the last 12 years or so. More than Menino. He will definitely get re-elected this upcoming term.
FAVORITE LIVE SHOW: This year was Quicksand at the Paradise. The energy and passion 50-year-old singer Walter Schreifels still has is top-notch. Back in the day? Judge at the Rat in 1989. They didn’t show up.
I fucked some kid up in the pit and shut down all-ages shows for a while.
MOST LIKELY TO BLOW UP: Casey Desmond and all those types of musicians I guess.
MOST UNIQUE STYLE: Swid from Razors In The Night. He’s either naked, or in a thong.
Can’t tell if I trust him yet. I heard he sleeps with his own penis in his mouth somehow.
