I’m playing a show next month at a tattoo parlor. I’ve been thinking for a really long time now about getting inked up, and I think I’m going to make it happen. I’ve had the idea to start small, with some text, and I wanted this Big D and the Kids Table reference for a while, because “Music- a steady riot in my soul” is something I take to heart, 24/7, and music’s always over my shoulder and behind me should I need it. It’s just a mock up on a computer since I totally suck at drawing, but I’m going to trace it out and tweak it a bit and work with an artist on it.

Beautiful!

To celebrate Dicky’s 50th Birthday, a video was prepared with birthday greetings from friends. The video clocks in at 10 minutes, but it’s remarkable how many people from across industries and circles pulled together to put in their best wishes: Talk show hosts including Conan O’Brien and Larry King, Comedians like Lenny Clarke and Kathy Griffin, fellow ska/punks Less Than Jake and Fishbone, members of Boston bands Dropkick Murphys and Streetdogs, 737 crew members. It just kept going! Get your bingo card out and watch!

See video of the full Bosstones’ set here.
