NEW SHOWS FOR SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER!!!

Friday, September 1 at The Jetty in Marshfield
 
Saturday, October 21 at the 3rd Annual Westminster Cracker Festival

 
Believe it or not, I am walking on air. I never thought I would feel so free. Flying away on a wing and a prayer, who could it be? Believe it or not it’s just Clutch Grabwell. Yes, your Greatest American Heroes are actually playing not one, but two shows in the coming months. On September 1, we are back at the Jetty to help kick off the last weekend of summer in Marsh-Vegas. This place is a sweaty good time, kind of like the Plantation Club used to be, except with higher property values, no porches falling off the place and fewer crusty beanbag chairs covered in last weekend’s bachelor party whipped cream remnants. No joke. So make your plans to come down, hunt for parking, have something to eat and then drop your cocks, because it’s time to rock!
 
Next up is the Cracker Festival in Westminster where we will be the crunch in your soup. I don’t have all the info on the full line up, but I hope it will be a good one. We played this last year – not gonna lie, it was rainy and Duff was VERY grumpy because his stuff was getting wet, and because I left a bunch of empty Bud Light cans in the back of his truck, where I took shelter from the elements. I wasn’t alone, but I admit I was there … so, it was rainy, that is until our set when the sun broke through for a glorious hour of the boys ripping it up. I predict similar results for this coming festival.
 
So that’s what I’ve got. Check us out on Facebook for up-to-date info, or to tell me how much I suck as a person. Your call.

Friday, June 30 at The Jetty in Marshfield

Yes, you are reading this correctly – your friends at Clutch Grabwell Industries are not officially extinct and will be making the rare live appearance at The Jetty in Marshfield. This is a awesome spot – great food, great drinks and an amazing staff! It makes the Beachcomber look like the Plantation Club … wait, that´s not a fair comparison … they both had great people, too … or maybe I´m just pointing out the places that used to exist. Maybe the Age of Extinction is upon us! Regardless, we ain´t dead yet and are looking forward to smacking it up, flipping it and rubbing it down with you guys on Friday. Seriously, I can´t wait. After a long week of watching people fumble around a fahk shit up at the office, it´s a blessing to jump in the hoopdee and fight summer Friday night traffic the entire length of 128 and Route 3 for the opportunity to rock your socks off. So whaddaya say? Friday night, summertime, Marsh-Vegas, the Jetty, beers, hot chicks, guitars, fire trucks, trombones, strippers, pole vaulting and who knows what else?

I can´t wait to see you guys! Get on down to the Jetty!

NEW SHOW!!! – Wednesday, December 28 at The Middle East in Cambridge

Whoa! What year is this? I am late in posting this as I wasn´t sure it was going to happen, but here you go – we will be playing at the Middle East in Cambridge on the Wednesday night after Christmas. Yup, we´ve been playing in (and mostly around) this city for years, and every once in a while we are blessed with the opportunity to go to the corner of Mass Ave and Brookline street to load our gear into this place, drink PBR drafts out of plastic cups, rip up the stage, load our stuff back out and go home.

The good news is that we will be playing with some terrific bands, most notably Night Animals out of the Bay Area in California. I guess the guitar player is from the Q and knows Mark, hence why we´re on this thing … and the band has a horn section, so there´s that … Also playing that night are Four Point Restraints and Ben Cosgrove. I encourage all of you to check them all out online. Some pretty cool stuff going on here, and I´m looking forward to seeing them all.

OK, that´s it for me. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or whatever you´re most comfortable with, the words don´t matter it´s the sentiment. I hope it´s someone else in your family that gets too drunk and stirs up the old controversies this year, and that Bob from accounting doesn´t give you that hug that´s a little too tight, a little too long, and way too much up and down back rubbing at the office party this year … or if you´re a guy, I hope that new temp receptionist lets you have a go in the coat room at the end of the night … whatever you´re into, guy … That is all. Middle East upstairs next week, come on down!

Friday, December 2 at the Tinker's Son in Norwell

Hey now ... we're going low-key this coming Friday.  I'm not being negative - there's nothing wrong with a little low-key action, and the Tinker's Son is a very cool, laid-back kind of place.  Good stuff.  Me and the boys will be bringing our guitars, drums, trombones and saxophones to deliver to you the holiday tidings you will so desperately need after a week of Black Friday shopping and whatever Christmas related rubbish you have to deal with.  That's what we do, and we do it for you.  Pun intended.
 
I hope you put on the pads and took out some holiday hate at the malls this weekend, because nothing says "Peace on Earth" like slugging it out with someone over a $150 TV.  Please.  Your time should be worth more than a $100 savings, especially when you have to drag yourself through the dregs of humanity at 1AM.  Not doing it.  That's all.
 
If you haven't figured it out yet, I am a Grinch who does not like Christmas.  What I do like is to get over to the Tinker's Son, crush some Bud Lights and play awesome songs to people who give a shit, meaning you guys!
 
Our last time out we banged out a few sets in Kingston at Waxy's in the mall to a very enthusiastic crowd, then the next day headed to Westminster to navigate the soaking wet traffic nightmare known as the Cracker Festival.  Apparently it was all about the food stuff ... anyway, the always awesome Andy Kaski made it a worthwhile trip with a cooler of Bud Lights and shelter inside Duff's box truck.  Man, was all that rain making Duff grumpy ... Funny story, it rained for the first two bands, then the sun broke free long enough for our set, and then it started raining for the next band.  We are truly magical.  Seriously.
 
OK, get down to Tinker's on Friday because we would love to see you.  If not, have a great Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever you do or don't celebrate.  Basically, enjoy whatever time off you can get from your soul-sucking job!  Love you guys, see ya on Friday!

Friday, October 21 at Waxy's in Kingston
and
Saturday, October 22 at Cracker Festival

Whoa, that was a lot ... yes, for the first time since we crushed the regional breweries then tore it up at Happy's Tea Room, we're playing the Kingston Collection auditorium known as Waxy's, then headed to the town Andy and Carol live in (Westminster) to play the Cracker Festival, which is indeed a celebration of crackers, not a celebration of something else ... seriously, it's about crackers, the delicious things you put in soup or eat when you just spent the last 24 hours throwing up.  I'm just sayin' ..
 
Now, I can guarantee the Grupillion clan will make it out to Kingston again, but it will be fun, and during the set break you can go candle shopping across the way.  Malls sure have changed ... I was hoping for the one from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but this one is a little more hot suburban mom with a 60+ husband than Damone trying to pitch his leftover Cheap Trick tickets.  Either way, good times.
 
Westminster is always a good time, especially since the aforementioned Andy and Carol will be there.  If you don't know these two, you are missing something big.
 
That's all I've got for the moment.  Do not screw this up (Worcester county folks, I am talking to you).
 
Love you!
