    Feb. 10th. Allston/Brighton Scramble. Boston, MA.



    I did an alleycat in NYC (put on by ch0mb0) that was like this and it was fun as hell, so get ready to have some of it (fun that is).

    wasn't there some weird criteria for that statistic? i never heard or read the full story, but i find it hard to believe that allston, ma is the WORST place to live in the US. didn't east st. louis have the highest murder rate or something?

    I think allston/brighton did get up on one of those worst places to live lists.

    is scramble-style different from regular alleycat-style? or are they just 2 different words for the same thing?

    A scamble is different then a regular alleycat in that its in a smaller area with lots of checkpoints. In this case, the race take place within the allston/brighton lines... except the start.

    As for the allston being the worst place to live in the country.... I read it in a book called like The Absolutely Worst Places to Live in America. Not really like a countdown thing... Cambridge got a (dis)honorable mention in there too.

    haha, no problem. we'll see how much everyone likes it after the race. that'll be the real test. i guess. i'm not really sure what that means.

    i can't make it to the actual race because of a prior engagement (i live in opposite land, remember?) but later that evening, i think around 6pm, my younger brother's stoner metal band, elder, is playing a house show in allston, so if you guys aren't sure of an after-party you could always just move it to the show... if anyone wants details let me know.

    also, here is their myspace: http://myspace.com/beholdtheelder

    i'm still trying to figure out the first hint. at some point i should probably aimlessly ride around allston/brighton and just scope out what's good.
