Springfield Rockout

The old Mutual Ford in ol' Pine Point is falling into ruins.

It does however have some cool and sophisticated graffiti on it.

Here is what it is like to ride the State-Boston Road bus into the Peter Pan bus terminal.

Night falls upon the big city.

This bar went out of business a while ago.

Now it is reborn as a youth boxing center.

We went to Theodores and sat by this portrait of Calvin Coolidge, the only resident of Western Massachusetts to rise to the Presidency of the United States.

Among the celebrities present was local pet food and soda baron Dave Ratner.

The crowd for the Stearns Square concert was good, but a little smaller than what I've seen in the past.

The band playing was the Smithereens. Check 'em out.

FYI fickle finger from earlier blog and sophisticated graffiti are the same artist.

I have NEVER seen good graffitti in Spfld, Tom, but you found some. Very good. I will miss Kev deeply. And Tom Shea is leaving too, but thankfully very much alive. They were two reasons I still bought the Republican. I'd see Kev and Tom often at shows. People flocked around them with good reason. They knew music and they were, (are), damn good people.
