Free Posters on NYE!

We are working diligently to bring you the best New Years EVE ever. The Truth are preparing a brand new vacuous stare to bring in 2012.

Also, we are giving a free show poster to the first 100 people to arrive at our party, designed by the brilliant Carpe Diem Construction Co. Let Johnny and the Truth grace your fridge or office, or maybe cut it up and hang it as your infant's mobile...

Still need tickets? Get 'em here.

New Years EVE!

Me and my people are coming back to Milkboy to bless the New Year with our nasties. We were last there with my lady friend Martha Graham Cracker on Halloween. The venue is simply topshelf, and as you know, that's not a word I just throw around.

Come share the time, and check out our ridiculously strange and wonderful guests, El Malito, who were nominated for the Philebrity Award for Breakout Musical Act of the Year!

They put this little promo video together. Dig, and invite your friends on Facebook!

That Lady's coming!

A Time of Love and Understanding

Connies at Christmas is a special time of year. The Italian Market is bustling with Mexican Music and the special smell of urine, and Old Joe Brown Tartaglia is passing out hip flasks with little bottles of Captain Morgan. On December 9th, All of our friends and family piled in to sing songs, share Christmas memories, and bask in the glow of the incredible Sons of Thunder.

We did the Golden Handshake. My palms were reenacting a sensual encounter from across a crowded room.

The Truth wished for nothing, and got everything they ever needed in their stocking. Notice the bows and garland. We killed it for Christmas.

Our good friend Birdie Busch stopped in and blessed us with some tunes. She's got the prettiest swing this side of the Delaware.

Drummer Joseph Getzani and Andrew Nelson locked into the nasty, while Rumi Kitchen stared into the spirit of Christmas forever-now-ness.

Christmas is such an emotional time for me. I was wrapped with memories, and told of everything from my ex-wife's throwing up on 95N to Providence to lodging a sharpened candy cane in my little bother Bobby's throat.

We also had some very special guests at TABLE $25. "Beaver and Kat", as they only wish to be known for these purposes, were visiting from Wickford, RI. They are active supporters of #OccupyWestWarwick, and came to see us their friend "Janet". I knew them when I was working at Quidnessett Country Club, and they got me a weekly gig at Bovy's Tavern in East Providence.

The following photos are from their pampered view at Table $25.

Here is us by the televised fireplace. So warm and cozy.

Here is me singing "Please Don't Throw Up Again (This Christmas)", a song for my ex-wife Bonnie.

Here is my ex-wife Bonnie, many Christmases ago. I still think of her, especially since I can't get her pukestench out of my seats in the Taurus.
