The Smithereens

Here are some pictures from the best 2 song concert I've ever seen. The Smithereens played the 2003 Kettering Ohio Go 4th festival, or at least they tried to play. 2 songs into their set, a major storm blew in with high winds and lightning, forcing everyone to scatter.

Its a shame, they band was sounding good. This was the 5th time I've seen the Smithereens, dating back to 1986 when they opened for the Ramones at Hammerjacks in Baltimore.

Check out the band's web site at and check out Pat Dinizio's site at Check out Pat's living room concerts concept, and his patrons and artists program.
