Wednesday Video: It's Smithereens Week In Washington!

The next week is a big one for the Smithereens, as they get ready for the release next Tuesday of Meet the Smithereens, a Beatles tribute recording. On Friday, they'll be at the State Theatre in Falls Church, as will I, where they'll be playing the whole disk (12 songs, 28 minutes, is what the Beatles' version was), as well as the usual Smithereens rockage, probably including this, Blood and Roses , from their first album Especially for You, which came out in, gulp, 1986, and was produced by the great Don Dixon, who I mention because he does that great song, Praying Mantis, that's been running through my head now for about 20 years.

See you Friday.

Cool vid. That's the first time I've seen it, but now I have Praying Mantis stuck in my head.
See you Friday...

This is the first time I've seen that video. No wonder Pat D always wears a skullcap nowadays...

See you at The State.
