Next stop: Room 10-09

Posted by selene on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Buffalo Tom doesn’t tour often, so those of you outside New England probably haven’t had a chance to see Bill Janovitz recently, doing what he does best (other than sell houses to “some rich folk that you know” and keeping the creators of the Facebook poker app happy). But those of us who live in Boston are lucky enough to catch him a few times a year, either solo, at Hot Stove/Cool Music or with side projects like The Show People and Crown Victoria.

Tomorrow night, Bill wraps up a monthlong residency at Toad in Cambridge, the cozy bar where, two years ago, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein (comments disallowed for Yankees fans) and Eddie Vedder joined in for a few songs post-Pearl Jam show at the Garden. (Garden capacity=18,000. Toad capacity=~50.)

He’s been doing some new stuff, some cuts from Crown Victoria’s debut, “Fireworks on TV,” some solo Buffalo Tom trax, and some ripper classics (Kinks, CCR, Stones, Bill Withers, Sam Cooke, the Beatles, etc) during the three-hour sets. The video below, taken at last week’s show, includes the Rolling Stones’ “Shine a Light” and a Boston classic, “Roadrunner,” by the Modern Lovers. Comes in after six, I believe.

And a Buffalo Tom oldie, “I’m Allowed”
