I studied Roethke’s work at Emerson College in Boston with the great Thomas Lux. At the time I got tremendous insight into Roethke and a deeper appreciation of the craft of poetry. Take a look at what this professor at Michigan State so eloquently writes.
The Dead Exs actually played for this surfing community back on October 29, 2012, 1 night before the storm. Even Simon who is reference n the video several times jammed with the band on stage. It was an amazing night. Everybody knew of the storm coming but nobody had any idea how bad it would be. Take 10 minutes and watch this film…beautifully done… elquent. We send our prayers and best wishes to the entire community of the Rockaways.
Last night was a special night. It was the kickoff of a new monthly party called Blue Tuesdays at the historic downtown rock & roll bar Manitoba’s. Along with a bunch of The Dead Exs fans, hanging tight were über babe of Californication and Zero Hour Addison Timlin, party harder bad boy Andrew WK, and the rock stalwart himself Handsome Dick Manitoba. Pattillo played a rippin 1 1/2 hour set of Dead Exs tunes as well as some classic Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles and Lightnin’ Hopkins. Next stop The Dead Exs play MON FEB 11 at Mercury Lounge with Brothers NY and Daddy Long Legs. More shows listed here.
