“With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down
Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them
He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town…”
– “Godzilla,” Blue Oyster Cult

The third annual American Music Festival for the Lake is slated to take over Charles Wood Park in Lake George on Saturday & Sunday, September 24 & 25. And now they’ve announced the Saturday headliner – those veteran headbangers Blue Oyster Cult, who were last spotted in Greater Nippertown in August, teaming up with Blotto for a Blot & Blue reunion at Albany’s Alive at Five.

    Maybe these oysters can swallow up those invading clams in Lake George?

  2. james says:

    old white male rock guitars are fucking boring

  3. Mike H says:

    Point taken, James – though I find Joe Bonamassa, a relative whippersnapper, even more boring than the old guys!

  4. Weird Hal says:

    But how do you feel about the guitarists, not just the guitars?
    (and how can you tell that the guitars are male?)

  5. james says:

    Wierd H

    It’s a metonym, look it up smart guy

  6. mutant says:

    @james a metronome?

  7. james says:

    Based on the time feel of an overwhelming majority of rock guitarists, I’d guess no.

  8. Weird Hal says:

    Nah, it really doesn’t work. Nice try though
