and a review from Johnny Svudmaster
“People should go to this show!!! Mickey Bliss has been a staple in this community 4EVR, I am not affiliated with the booking or promotion, I just think if you wanna support a true local legend and upstanding pillar of the Boston music scene, now is your chance! Come experience the man behind the famous bowlcut/suit & tie combo that's been keeping Club Bohemia on it's feet for years.” – Ian Voland, an attendee Saturday night, written a few hours before showtime.
Prior to the Mickey/Foodmasters blast from the past, we were treated to the sweet country twang of the Love Strangers Duo aka LSD. The pair comprises of KLYAM Records all-star Ryan Major on vocals and guitar and Ashley Holzwasser on vocals and drums.
Life Partners, a local noisy trio, closed out the evening with their space jam rock. They’re real lifers kehd, they have been careening around these streets since 2001 and are not stopping any time soon. B.J. Snowden once compared them to Jimi Hendrix. Far out indeed,

Review by Joe Viglione
A terrific cover photograph and key words in the title set the tone for Rex Apollo's personal tips for success, built more as an autobiographical guide towards positive thinking rather than taking on the masters, Florence Scovel Shin, Neville Goddard, Joseph Smith, Napolean Hill, Reverend Ike and others in the "new-thought" movement. Kind of hard to call it "new-thought" based on the teachings of Jesus over 2,000 years ago, but we could get really deep digressing on the evolution of mystical thinking.
Rex Apollo - actually - doesn't go down that path, though people who dwell in that arena will immediately get the impression that he does. As stated, it is the personal reflections of a writer in his mid-thirties telling of his ups and downs. On page 82 he says "Our entire life is a game," which mirrors the title of Shinn's book: The Game of Life and How to Play It (1925) almost a century later. Rex also taps into Claude Bristol's The Magic of Believing without seemingly ever having encountered the famous writer - said to be a student of Neville Goddard's. Bristol was a businessman, a police reporter, journalist - among other titles - and studied many belief systems before writing his two classics. Where Bristol collected information and formed conclusions, Apollo's data is empirical, based on his own life experience and ideas.
I find it fascinating that someone not steeped in "the movement" writes so eloquently from that perspective, and his title about "sparking" your "golden age" is a new approach to what are now ancient themes. The "golden age," what we apply to film -Gone with the Wind, The Bride of Frankenstein, Casablanca, etc, and music - The Rolling Stones from Beggars Banquet up to Goat's Head Soup, The Beatles from Rubber Soul to everything before and after, is a magical time, a moment, when the vibrations were all spot on for those particular events and filmmakers/music makers. Rex Apollo is basically telling you that everyone can generate, initiate, "spark" a "golden age" of their own, that sweet spot when everything flows your way, naturally and with much brio.
The verve and vivacity you seek Apollo believes you can have, as do Shinn and Bristol referenced above - ten decades or so before.
What is also intriguing is that Apollo tucks it all into 99 pages. From a compelling cover that says it all, to a succinct look through his own life, and the instructions he offers - take them or leave them - the shortness of the tome - which you might think is an oxymoron, but it's not in this context (a tome being a large and scholarly book; I believe the largeness is in the ideas reduced - not to Cliff Notes - but easy handling,) gives the work greater impact. Shinn's books are even shorter, and that the author goes there without knowing her is another identifier for the "new thought" crowd.
It's not what you expect. It is a different kind of book about positive energy coming from the author's point of view. You don't have to take the advice, but if his journey inspires you to seek your own way through time and space, it's done its job.
