If you know one thing about the Boston "Rock" scene...

You should know that winning the WBCN "Rumble" (some lame ass local music "Battle of the Bands" for lack of a better description) is usually the kiss of death.
Now, I have absolutely no interest in going to see bands "compete" for anything, especially when some commercial radio station is in charge of picking the "winner" but I did find myself at the "finals" the other night...mainly because the special guest band was The Outlets.
Other than that...all I can say about the night is, judging by the winner, generic pop seems to be what sells.
I'd never heard of the winning band until that night & quite frankly, I'm OK with that.
I will say, the total surprise of the night had to be Gene Dante & The Future Starlets.
If you like that late model Damned sound with all the flamboyance of a wanna-be rock star this band might be your bag.
I don't really know what has happened to the local music scene that this band's sound is what now what stands out to me...but what do I know anyhow?
I hate's got too many notes.
