John Shirley & the Screaming Geezers Opened for the Blue Oyster Cult last night! Photographic Evidence!

John Shirley & the Screaming Geezers played for 1200 people at the sold-out Blue Oyster Cult show last night as the opening band. We got a wonderful reception from audience–we rocked it–and the BOC gave us compliments and so have people writing in at screaminggeezers.com. The BOC were GREAT. Guitar beauty. Brilliance.  Subtlety and powerful hard rock at once. Here’s a kinetic pic from the show at the Roseland Theater in Portland, that’s me at the mic. A Screaming Geezers album is coming soon, from Black October Records, and there will be a new BLUE OYSTER CULT album in September, from Frontier Records–on which are five songs for which I wrote the lyrics…Was thrilled when, backstage on Saturday, Richie of the Blue Oyster Cult let me hear, from his laptop, a nearly-finished mix of one of my songs on that new BOC album –and it’s sounding so great. I also saw the songlist for the album and I have (as lyricist) five songs on it. Watch for the new Blue Oyster Cult album in September.
