Mike and the boys are back in town and performing this weekend!

It’s time to do a spotlight on a band that is as readily identified with Dorchester as our beloved Street Dogs. Dead Friends was formed in the fall of 2008 and have spent the last 3 years refining their hardcore punk sound. They say all music can invoke an emotion, the Dead Friends sound makes me want to tear down the Mass Pike in a vintage muscle car or pinball through a massive mosh pit.
I had a chance to speak a bit with front man and fellow Dot Rat Mark Doherty today and he’s excited about the future of the band. He mentioned the band is working on a new album entitled “Institutionalized”. They have also managed to grab the #1 spot on the WZLX Boston Emissions Music Poll last week for their song “Stand Up”. You can find that single on iTunes by clicking HERE. The rest of their work can be found HERE.
I think the future is bright for Dead Friends, they are a hard working band with great influences. Keep and eye on them…..
Go grab one of their tshirts with that killer logo…
Here’s a ton of links for the band….
Hello Dot Rats …. it’s been a while. I just wanted to take a second to send my condolences out to the McColgan family. I’m sure Don was a great man. I wish I could have been their to pay my respects. Keep your chin up Mike and Don!!
So Dotrat.com stands at just under 14,000 hits since I started blogging again in September. I’m pretty excited about that….we even get hits from Europe on a regular basis which is incredible. I have to thank Boombalotty, Universalhub, WickedImproper and Emily Sweeney again for their support. The Rock Island Food company for keeping me powered up. Last but certainly not least….. Big George for telling me to do something with dotrat.com….The elder statesman of Dorchester was right again. His definition of a DotRat video has to be an Oscar contender….
I got some plans for 2012….stay tuned.
What’s better than celebrating Christmas? Celebrating Christmas with the Street Dogs at the legendary Paradise Rock Club.They have 2 shows this weekend the 16th and 17th. Get the crew together, strap on your Docs and hit the packie because some of Dorchester’s finest are throwing down at Wreck the Halls!!
