From 1965-75, Burton Cummings was the lead singer and keyboardist for Canadian rock band The Guess Who. He sung a heap of the songs by The Guess Who that he made famous (including “American Woman”) at Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center at Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland, recently.

“I had a little freakout when my guitar broke last night,” said Captain Sensible during a sold-out show at Black Cat.
“Don’t you freakout now,” The Captain said to the audience. “Unless you want to freakout a little.” He paused. “Monty, dig me out of this hole, will you?”
Keyboardist Monty Oxymoron smiled and asked, “What’s a little freakout in the entire History of the World?” And without missing a beat, The Damned launched into “The History of the World (Part 1),” a single dating to The Black Album in 1980.

Johnny Marr blasted into The Fillmore Silver Spring recently, and Jason Nicholson shot the show!
