Russo Gets Carbombed; RANA Helps Close Out CBGB
On Saturday, a streamlined version of RANA performed aboard New Yorks Rocks Off Boat Cruise . A rare afternoon cruise, this traveling performance was packaged with tickets for the Mets game against the Colorado Rockies. Recalling RANAs early days, guitarist Scott Metzger did not perform (due to family reasons), though a number of additional guests filtered onto the stage throughout the afternoon, including Joe Russo, Chris Harford and WEENs Dave Dreiwitz (the three of whom performed a set of music as a trio on the boat as well). One particular highlight included Russo playing guitar and supplying lead vocals on version of Metzgers Carbombed Again.
In other RANA news , the quartet, with Metzger, will perform at one of CBGBs final shows on September 13. Before the lauded underground rock-womb closes its doors on September 30, a number of familiar faces will enter the room one final time. Of particular note, on September 28 Dub Trio will support Fishbone, while on September 15 INKlings featuring Kevin Kendrick (formerly of Fat Mama) will perform at CBGB’s Lounge.
