And Powhida was also in town earlier this year leading his current band, John Powhida International Airport, at the Rockin’ on the River concert series in Troy, opening for Super 400.

In addition to Powhida, the other nominees for the Boston Music Awards’ Male Vocalist of the Year trophy are Ad Frank (of Ad Frank & the Fast Easy Women), Eli “Paperboy” Reed (of Eli “Paperboy” Reed & the True Loves), Jesse Dee and John McCauley (of Deer Tick).

    I see that John is coming back to Valentine’s on Saturday, Dec. 4 with The Staziaks and special guests (making their Albany debut, I think) Boston’s Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents. Should be quite a show!
