Boston Hassle moves Bleeding Rainbow show from Tasty Burger to private Jamaica Plain space

 
 

Tomorrow night’s Bleeding Rainbow show was originally supposed to happen at Tasty Burger in Harvard Square, but after the shitshow that transpired this past weekend, the promoters have moved the show to a private house space in Jamaica Plain.

Boston Hassle announced the relocation last night on Facebook, and also stated that Tasty Burger has cancelled all upcoming live shows. We are currently looking to confirm that, but do know this weekend’s Eye Design shows Friday and Saturday night are not happening as planned

For tomorrow night’s show, Boston’s Bent Shapes, Fat Creeps, and Grateful Dead cover band Dedicated Hands were also on the bill with Bleeding Rainbow, who are on tour from Philadelphia.

“Why is the show being moved from Tasty Burger?” Boston Hassle wrote on the event’s Facebook page. “After a friend’s show was prematurely ended (during the opening band’s set of a 3 band bill that included a touring band) by the owner of TASTY BURGER we have decided that we cannot take the chance of such a situation reoccurring.”

Boston Hassle’s note continued: “If you are going to host rock bands @ your venue, if you’re going to invite them into your venue, you cannot ask those bands to TURN DOWN. And you most certainly cannot end a show during the first of several sets because the band that you asked to turn down refuses to do so. Actually run a venue or don’t, no one is forcing anything on Tasty Burger.”

Here’s Bleeding Rainbow’s latest tune, “Tell Me,” via Kanine Records:

  1. You don’t need to make peoples ears bleed to prove how rock you are. If someone asks you to turn down – it means people arent enjoying your show. Turn down.

    1. seriously, thinking that diming your amps is the only way you could possibly play music is so fucking childish. also a sign that your band fucking sucks. half the time i see some shitty allston band play the guitars are louder than the drummer and the vocal PA might as well be turned off.

  2. “you cannot ask those bands to TURN DOWN. And you most certainly cannot end a show during the first of several sets because the band that you asked to turn down refuses to do so.”
    Factually, it looks like you can. There are several venues in town that ask bands play a little quieter. Perhaps nobody could hear the vocals over the instruments? Perhaps it’s not the end of the world to turn your amp down. Most amps sound like shit opened all the way up, particularly as many bands purchase higher wattage amps then they need. Perhaps you should research your venues a bit and make sure you’re matching bands with venues appropriate to them. In a city that is not bursting at the seams with music venues (particularly one nice enough to pay a band for not performing) perhaps being slightly less of an asshole may get you further

  3. yeah i’m sure there is a 0% chance that the show in an unlicensed venue in JP will get shut down and they can probably play as loud as they want!!!
