Sophia’s Rock Beat: Week of 02/27/11

videoing Boston one show at a time.

Sophia’s Rock Beat – the mission is simple – go to as many shows around Boston as possible and take video then post it here. Previous Rock Beats are here!

Another slim rock week here – the only event we managed to make it out to was “Out of the Woodwork” an acoustic show at The Milky Way on Wednesday 3/2.

Aviv Rubinstien (Pray for Polanski) – managed to surprise everyone a bit, I think – he sprung a cover of The Motion Sick’s Grace Kelly on Michael – video here, sprung back-up vocal duty on Jeff (on a song, I’m pretty sure Jeff’s never heard – video), and called his bandmate, Anne up to sing this one with him. (also got two other videos of him as well – video 1, video 2)

Michael J. Epstein (with assorted librarians) – Every Time I Visit You it Rains  and Amylee

Nick Murphy (The Acre) – video 1, video 2
Jeff Vachon (Big East)-  video 1
Justin Emile (Big East) – video 1, video 2, video 3
Nicholas Hashem (The Boots) – video 1, video 2, video 3

and a special performance of Space Balloon‘s If you want a mustache:

Thursday, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling was in the studio – I posted video of that here.

Looking at this week:
Tuesday is the Rock ‘n’ Roll Social at The Model

Thursday, 3/10 Jordan Valentine and the Sunday Saints Vinyl Residency at The Rosebud continues with Muck & the Mires and Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents
