Flashback: Blasting Into The Past

By some weird, cosmic coincidence, the beginning of 2010 is apparently making people wax nostalgic for the 1980’s:

The Fuzebox is remembering the late, fabled QE2 (it’s the 10th anniversary of its closing) with a QE2 Revival next Friday and Saturday, January 15-16, complete with music from the 80’s and a collection of decorations and posters from the QE2.

And two well-respected photographers, formerly of Nippertown, have delved into their archives and started posting old photos:

  • Dave Suarez has started a collection of photos from his Albany days on his Facebook page.
  • Rich Schoenberg has started a Facebook page for J.B. Scotts. If you’ve got photos or stories, you’re invited to post them.
  • What’s next, a Chateau reunion?

    QE2 Revival Weekend!

    January 15th is Vamp: Remembers the QE2, and January 16th is in fact, the usual 80’s night, however with a few more hits that were played during the ol’ QE2 days and all of the decorations will still be up. I never went to the QE2, and always wondered what it was like, so I said hey, it’s been 10 years, lets do something!
