Dirty Water Dudes

Standells celebrate at East End

By John Chandler November 30, 2009

Could it be a coincidence? In my experience there’s no such animal. Last weekend’s e. coli scare, meet this weekend’s "Dirty Water".

Ultra-groovy rock club the East End is celebrating its second anniversary all week, culminating with a Saturday night concert starring the Standells. This ‘60s combo is best known for its hit, "Dirty Water," which has become a Boston Red Sox anthem (despite the band being from Los Angeles), but they’ve got a ton of killer tunes including "Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White" and the little ditty featured below, which was the title track to one of the greatest films of the 20th century.

Full disclosure: My band, Mr. Howl, is on the bill, but we’re merely the chips and salsa before the coming of the big enchilada.
