Nick and I have a good question for you and the FOBs, espesh Mary Kay:
Nick hauled out our friend’s boat from his mooring near the State fish pier recently, and after getting it to their yard found these very creepy, prehistoric, alien looking living creatures on the rudder.

Vote today in Gloucester, then vote on-line at the Boston Music Awards
You know the rule: If you don’t vote you can’t bitch. And I love to bitch, so I always vote.
After you go to your local polling place today, you can go on-line and vote for your favorite local music at The Boston Music Awards. You’ll be able to vote for plenty of artists you’ve seen in Gloucester and Cape Ann, including Kingsley Flood for their Album “Battles” and for their Video “Sigh a While”, Peter Wolf for Live Artist, Gracie Curran (who opened the Gloucester Blues Fest) for Blues Artist, Barrence Whitfield for Male Vocalist and Dennis Brennan for Best Live Ongoing Residency.
Let’s show the Boston folks that artists who come to Cape Ann to perform get the most votes!
The Broadcast at Minglewood on Friday November 8th
The Broadcast is hard-edged, soulful rock music bursting-at-the-seams. Drawing much of their ambience from 70’s classic rock, they’re a band with an explosive female lead singer, riffing guitar, mood-altering keys and a rock-solid rhythm section. A dynamic ensemble known for their powerful live performances, The Broadcast continues to break new ground across the country with vocal powerhouse Caitlin Krisko leading every step of the way. Described by audiences as a modern day “Grace Slick meets Led Zeppelin”, The Broadcast’s infectious energy and authentic approach to rock & roll music has propelled them into the live music community spotlight. The band is currently on tour supporting their new studio album “Dodge the Arrow” released September 2013.
