(the) Razz Made DC Rock

J Scott Watson

It's rare that DC ROCKS looks back on a show, but history was made (once again) at the 9:30 Cub last Sunday.  DC's long lost Razz came back with a vengeance not seen in 17 years. "Just like the cicada" front man Michael Reidy pointed out, and just like the cicada, they were loud and they chewed the scenery .

I have to say, despite the years gone by, Razz kicked ass, and the crowd loved it. It was part theater, part nostalgia, and totally rock and roll.

The band took no prisoners and ended up including both lead singers of the Slickee Boys.  Mark Noone played bass and sang "Gotta Tell Me Why" mid set.

And last but not least, surprise guest, Martha Hull jumped on stage for the big finale of the classic "Boys." giving us all the girl's point of view. Thank you Michael Reidy, Bill Craig, Doug Tull, Mark Noone and Abaad Behram for coming together as the Razz for DC Central Kitchen. And thank you  J. Scott Watson for capturing the action of this unforgettable event.
