Best of 2010: Tijuana Sweetheart’s Best Formerly-Known-As BMA Nominees

December 15, 2010

We invited friends to submit their Best of 2010 lists, wherein the only rule was that they had to somehow pertain to local music. If you’d like to submit a list for possible publication, email us!

Tijuana Sweetheart’s Best of 2010: The Lesser-Known FKAs of the BMAs

2010 started off with our band being forced to abandon a name we had lived and loved for the past four years. After a little research and a lot of stolen vodka, we found that many of the nominees for this year’s Boston Music Awards found themselves in the same predicament. Here are some of our favorites:

Amanda Palmer (FKA: Palmer? I hardly know her!)
Dropkick Murphys (FKA: CraneKick Larussos)
Motherboar (FKA: Fatherpig)
Bad Rabbits (FKA: Poorly Behaved Bunnies)
Mystery Roar (FKA: I Know Exactly Where That Roar Is Coming From)
Gozu (FKA: Goaquarium)
Refuse Resist (FKA: Just Go With It, Man)
Lenny Lashley’s Gang of One (FKA: Lenny Lashley’s Gang of Four)
Razors in the Night (FKA: Razors in the Locked Plastic Shelf at the Drugstore and You Need to Get a Guy to Help You and It’s So Annoying)
Have Nots (FKA: Have Garlic Knots, Yay!)

Tijuana Sweetheart is actually four sweethearts: The Hellion, LoWreck, Julie 2X and Keri. 
They came to rock you and steal your boyfriend.
