01 Jun SCRATCH Plays Motorland ArtWalk
Rave reviews!! Check out the live performance of SCRATCH at the Motorland ArtWalk tonight:
Notorious rock-recyclers SCRATCH fired up the tour bus and launched their Summer 2013 York County Tour at Motorland Vintage America in Biddeford on Friday, May 31st with a performance and Free Ticket Giveaway!
Coinciding with the Biddeford+Saco ArtWalk, SCRATCH rocked their special blend of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll against a backdrop of Motorland’s collection of high-octane classic vehicles and collectibles. Band members were eager to start the tour — for which all dates have not yet been announced, but which will include performances in Biddeford/Saco and Kennebunk — at Motorland, noting the similarities between the band and the classic car venue:
“Don’t bother looking for the seatbelts. Just relax and enjoy the ride.” T. Lee McGlashan (bass, vocals)
“Top. Is. Down. Baby.” Paul Verna (guitar, vocals)
“Ginger Baker in a Studebaker!” Doug Dickey (drums, vocals)
“We would so have chrome tailfins if we could. You understand me, right?” John Costin (guitar, vocals)
To celebrate the start of their tour, SCRATCH gave away tickets to the event to the first 1000 people who showed up. SCRATCH played from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. except when they are taking well-deserved breaks to allow those in attendance to enjoy the Motorland Vintage America collection, the art of John Waterhouse and his cool cold rolled steel sculpture in the Motorland Gallery, and other events at the Biddeford+Saco ArtWalk.
