Nostalgia is in the air this week. Tomorrow night film makers Richard Taylor and Jeff Krulik will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Razz's first single with an early peek at their new documentary about the band. DC Salon hosts this free event at the Shaw Library at 7 p.m. Razz played back in the day when live music bars were sprinkled all over this town-places like Desperados, Columbia Station, The Far Inn, The Keg and The Bayou. Back then the Unicorn Times listed bands in categories which included "original rock," and we had a wealth of talent to choose from. Here's a Unicorn Times ad from October 1979 created by Razz's truly creative front man Michael Reidy.
On Saturday night Ruthie and the Wranglers will open for what remains of NRBQ. Although NRBQ is not from here, the band had a big following in DC, and weirdly enough, this ad appeared in the same October issue of the Unicorn Times.
