Seeya in the pit.


This is why John makes most of our flyers.

Built4BBQ’s got a whole lotta punk rock coming your way.

Our resident ska/punks  Girth Control hit the road for a few days in early April, spreading the “get stoked” gospel to the good folks of Cleveland, Buffalo and Syracuse.

They’ll make their return home on April 14 on a stacked lineup at The Low Beat with the notorious Hellasexuals, Buffalo rippers On the Cinder and those righteous Savage Randys. Lace up the boots and RSVP here.

Long-promised new stuff from the Randys is near at hand, and it’s gonna hit you a like piledriver. We’re stoked to be working more with those guys and everyone’s favorite R’n’R SOBs  New Red Scare this year. Seeya in the pit.

Ten Foot Polecats 3-11-16

Once again, Built4BBQ brings you two for the price of one on Friday, March 11 at The Low Beat. Surf on into the weekend with a FREE happy hour show featuring the mighty Kimono Dragons and a rare solo set from Party Boat/Rechorduroys mastermind Ben Garrett! All the surf-pop-fuzz-rock you can deal with, plus fine drink specials and good company… the music kicks off at 6! RSVP here.

For a little cash on the barrelhead (5 bucks, to be exact), you can stick around for a rockin’ night of punk rock blues with Henry’s Rifle, local punk rockers The Savage Randys and Boston roots rippers Ten Foot Polecats. That’s a triple bill for the ages… put it all together and you’ve got yourself quite a Friday night. Find the Facebook event here.

Speaking of Henry’s Rifle… recording’s officially underway for the new EP, Arkansas. Along with the patented Pipino blend of  rip-roarers and heartbreakers, there’s some spooky stuff in the works like you’ve never heard from this guy before. Stay tuned, all this and lots more on the way from the BBQ pit in 2016.

Henry’s Rifle hits the boards.

Built4BBQ’s resident country-blues heartbreaker, art director and head honcho Henry’s Rifle is back in a big way this winter. After laying low for a few months, the Rifle reappeared at Funsgiving and has a few great shows lined up.

First up, check out one heck of an Americana bill at The Low Beat December 5 as John opens for Boston honky-tonk heroes Girls Guns and Glory.

Girls Guns Glory

Another Henry’s Rifle original!

And as the calendar turns, the Low Beat hosts “The Art & Music of Henry’s Rifle,” a free happy hour show on January 8. A combination art installation and performance, the evening will feature the first-ever gallery showing of John’s prolific, righteous artwork – which you’ll recognize from many Built4BBQ show posters, t-shirts and albums past – alongside a floorshaking live performance. And of course, there’s drink specials. This is the first in a series of free Built4BBQ happy hours coming your way – stay tuned for more!

We’ve got a lot to be thankful for and a lot to be stoked about in 2016. From the Built4BBQ family to yours, happy holidays and tasty times into the new year and beyond!

What Got You Stoked?

GC album coverThis is your new life! Built4BBQ is stoked to present its 10th official release, Girth Control’s debut album! What Got You Stoked in the First Place? is 12 tracks of sloppy ska-punk, a tribute to the simple glory of ’90s punk, basement shows, mohawks and beer. Recorded live at the Shred Shack by Dan Maddalone in front of a bunch of great friends and a VHS copy of The Waterboy, the album aims to remind you of the good things in life, drop your IQ a few points and put a smile on your face in the process. Featuring photos and artwork by Sarah Winner, John Pipino and Kara Amedio, the CD version of What Got You Stoked in the First Place? hit the shelves at Built4BBQ’s Whole Hog Halloween III and now available for free download. Get stoked!
