A Shameless Plug

Posted by len on June 17th, 2007

I’m finishing my 10-day business trip to Boston tomorrow as I head back to Lisbon via Philly.
We took the weekend off and I got a nice intro to the Boston music scene via my old friend Dave Thomas (aka Chumfee) who was my best friend throughout my teenage years. He’s been hangin’ around the Boston area’s music scene for a while and has a nifty band called “Pony”. Here’s a shot of them in mid-gig that I took two nights ago at “P.A’s Bar” (Portuguese American’s):

We also found ourselves ‘trailing’ another band called Paper Moon that Dave is friends with (bands can make friends in an institutional way not unlike painters attending one anothers gallery openings). We saw two of their live shows. Here’s them just before Pony at P.A’s:
Paper Moon in Concert
Dave (another Dave), the singer of Paper Moon, scored a major coup just a couple days ago when he pushed his song on a news station when they were going to do a Red Sox montage. They decided to use 30 seconds of one of his songs, “Last Laugh”, during the TV montage.
Before the broadcast he sent the main TV programmers flowers and CDs pleading with them to mention his “struggling local band’s” name during the clip. They did and within three hours he got over 900 hits on his web site and they sold lots of songs on iTunes.
Both Pony and Paper Moon songs are on the iTunes Music Store if you do a search.

    Is this a sign that Len is going solo? Or joining a new band? Is this the end of the Beagles?
    Sources close to Len, who wished to remain anonymous, have said that there have been tensions between band members in the past months, however they would not say if the band was done with. Yet, Len’s visit to Boston and frequenting rival band members has fed the rumors.

    At press time this reporter could not reach Mr. White or other members of the Beagles. However, Mr. Mean’s former publicist Iota Tellu did say that the band members are good friends and keep in touch, “this may just be Len visiting old friends and nothing to do with the Beagles”.

    I looked up both bands on iTunes, and there they were! Awesome!

    A correction though, for others trying to find them: The second band’s name is actually “Papermoon” (one word—the two-word version is a different band).
