From Eric Blowtorch

Hipsters! Flipsters! Cats & kittens of consciousness! This, what you are about to receive, is MEWZICK. 10 am-noon every Saturday (or Sunday in case of rain/snow/firestorm): I, NINE-VOLT ERIC, bang my guitar outside Brady Street Pharmacy, 1696 N. Astor St. (@ Brady St. – duh) Call 272-4384 for details, prescriptions, and lunch counter reservations. This Saturday, June 14, at Pere Marquette Park on Old World 3rd (KING DRIVE ALL THE WAY) and State, I, ELECTRIC ERIC BLOWTORCH, will sing and bang my guitar as part of the Voices for Peace concert also featuring Robyn Pluer, Mrs. Fun, and Taste Emcees. The concert lasts from noon to 10 pm; I am scheduled to start at 1:35. Peace Action of Milwaukee is hosting this show in an effort to inform music lovers about the causes and FX of war (‘What is it good for? It’s good for business!’ -Billy Bragg). Admission is freedom. This Sunday, June 15, at Club Caribe on the northwest corner of Center and Humboldt, in the dance hall in the back, the MIGHTY DJANGO HI-FI rolls on with Jamaican records from 9 pm to 1 in the mornin’. Call 378-8351 for information. Admission is mandatory. Next Thursday, June 19, ERIC B AND DAVIM spin dope dance discs manufactured after the first Moon Landing at River Horse, 701 E. Center St. (@ Pierce St.), from 10 to closing time. Admission is all right. Next Saturday, June 21, ERIC BLOWTORCH and the INFLAMMABLES meet the UPTOWN SAVAGES inna Cudahy at Vnuk’s Lounge, 5036 S. Packard Ave. (@ Martin, just just off the the southern end of Hwy. 794) Rock ‘n’ roll will stand. Admission will cost you dearly. Sunday, June 22, the MIGHTY DJANGO HI-FI begins a month of Sundays at Sol Fire, 2014 N. Farwell Ave. (between Lafayette & Windsor) I will spin Jamaican records from 9 to 1; call 291-0232 for information. Admission is nothin’. Thursday, June 26, TASTE EMCEES meet ERIC BLOWTORCH and the INFLAMMABLES and ARMAGIDEON and a DJ, so I’m told, at Onopa Brewing Co., 735 E. Center St. (@ Fratney) in a benefit show for Riverwest Currents, the Community Voice of Milwaukee’s Left Bank. Call 265-7278 for information. Admission is well worth it.

Tuesday, July 1, ERIC BLOWTORCH and the INFLAMMABLES sing and play, for tomorrow we die and go straight to H***, at the Starbucks/Ticketmaster Legends Stage, just outside the Marcus Amphitheater, Summerfest, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Admission is a pretty penny, my friend. Sunday, July 6, at the Riverwest Gardeners Market on Locust and Bremen, I, ELECTRIC ERIC BLOWTORCH, will sing and bang my guitar from noon to 3 p.m. Admission is a-ight. Media moguls: I am *not* spinning records at Frank’s Power Plant on Tuesdays, nor have I done so in many months. I am *not* spinning records at Onopa Brewing Company on Sundays, either. Thank you. Say you’re welcome. Stay cool Stay free Stay alive Eric
