Art Fredette and Peter Zaremba

Wave bye-bye: Art Fredette and Peter Zaremba dancing on the bar at Positively 4th Street

“I go out of business better than anybody,” Art Fredette told us as he handed me another Budweiser from behind the bar on Saturday night.


The free-for-all farewell fling at Fredette’s Positively Fourth Street in Troy was a complete blur, as you may be able to ascertain from my unintentionally abstract photos of the frenetic, furious performance of the Fleshtones.

As Fleshtones vocalist-keyboardist Peter Zaremba frequently declared throughout the band’s sweat-soaked, bash-’em-out, uber-garage rock frenzy of a show, “Yeah, we’re goin’ out, but we’re not goin’ out easy. We’re goin’ out in style.”

It’s raucous. It’s rough ‘n’ tumble. It’s raw.
