PORTRAITS OF LOCAL ROCKERS WITH THEIR KIDS BY KELLY DAVIDSON

From Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) to Roger Miller (Mission Of Burma),
Kelly Davidson’s ROCK PARENTS photography series captures Boston rockers in
their most challenging, most rewarding performances — as moms and dads.
Launched in 2005, the project illuminates the careful balance many musicians maintain
between artistic goals and familial responsibilities. Each unique portrait explores the
notion that a life in music and a life of parenthood are far from opposing goals, and
shows us the beauty of being passionate about both.
ROCK PARENTS Part 7 introduces us to a new group of musicians and their families,
including Joel Reader (Mr. T Experience, Pansy Division, The Fatal Flaw),Eric Schmider (The One Smith, Mollycoddle) Andrea Gillis, and Marc
Pinansky and the photographer herself,Kelly Davidson (Naked On Rollerherself, Kelly Davidson (Naked On Roller
Skates, The Liz Borden Band).

Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys
The Army of Broken Toys's stage show exorcises personal tragedies and cleaves its audience's hearts with rollicking apocalyptic waltzes and powerful rock ballads that seem to emerge from under their ringmaster Walter Sickert’s top hat. It offers a unique rock club run-away to the circus experience. “An immersive performance experience.” —Social Caroline / “MultimediaBOOYAH!!! “ –NE Theatre Geek /
"With the dancers, singers, instruments, and general zaniness of the set...trust me when I say this band cannot be absorbed via CD. You need to see them live. ” The Noise

The One Smith
Making this short; Mollycoddle is no more. When Eric Schmider is not racing cars, he is spitting the dust out of his mouth with new songs about New Mexico, or his home in Boston where he lives on the floor of a racquetball court. Sexy, no?
