Richard Bouchard and I continue our exciting and unfair exploration of the music scene here in Boston and beyond in the May edition of The Scrutiny Podcast.

After taking April off due to the chaos that befell our city we are back in force in May!  Thanks to the super talented Katrina Galore and E. Stephen Fredrick for hosting us at Torrent Engine 18 in Dorchester, MA (a part of town that’s not nearly as scary as people are having you believe), a beautiful former firehouse that they are in the process of re-proposing as arts space.   In addition, our panel included multi-instrumentalist and everyone’s favorite trumpeter Chris Barrett (Kingsly Flood /Eddie Japan) and singer/songwriter/bandleader/wunderkind,  Ruby Rose Fox.

Midriff in Brazil

tumblr_static_logosuper8ito_pequeno  Just a quick note but a really cool one.  Recently I was interviewed for the great Super8ito blog out of  Sao Paulo, Brazil by Diogo Antonio Rodriguez.  We talked about Midriff, The Beatings and my thoughts on the Boston music scene, past and present.  We discussed the differences and similarities between Sao Paulo and Boston.  We talked and talked.  It was a really great time and I want to thank Diogo for inviting me and preparing such thoughtful and insightful questions.  You can hear the final product at the link below.  Granted, if you understand Portuguese you’ll get a lot more out of it.  If you don’t, you can do as my Scrutiny Podcast partner Richard Bouchard did and give an impressed nod when he heard my name or a word he recognized.  I also got to pick a song and used the opportunity to introduce Brazil to the greatness that is Boston “Chimp Rock” giants,  Kudgel.  Super8ito!!! Check it out regularly.  Hopefully we’ll get down there soon and meet the awesome folks of Sao Paulo.
