Month of Slack: #10. “The Boss”


The Slackers w/ The Sentiments & The Georgetown Orbits @ The Crocodile, December 1st

Tickets Available Here

Back to some straight up Slack for this one. Had to go with the boss, because it kicks off the Self-titled album that The Slackers released earlier this year and has that kind of opening fury you’d hope for when you pop on a new record and you want to be drug into the action immediately. So, to keep this simple, I’m your Boss and if you still don’t have this record, go  *******HERE*******  and get it! Hurry Up!

Month of Slack: #11. “The Fool” (Dave Hillyard & The Rocksteady Seven)


The Slackers w/ The Sentiments & The Georgetown Orbits @ The Crocodile, December 1st

Tickets Available Here

As we close out SlacksGiving tonight, we end strong with the Dave Hillyard and The Rocksteady Seven with this classic tune that I’ve heard at the same as some of the first Slackers songs I heard, because thank you Give ‘Em the Boot II for throw this song right around the middle of the tracks. It also means that if you go back through all of today’s posts, you’ll find each of the current Slackers represented in at least one of each of these groups meaning I just won SlacksGiving Bingo, which is good, cuz I was the only one playing..

Anyway, tomorrow is another fun filled day in the Month of Slack, because its SlackFriday! So, if you must bust down that door at the Walmart at 5 AM, don’t forget shine your boots and brush your teeth, cuz the Man with his eye on that flatscreen looks different than the one carrying it…
