Those damn public pianos are long gone, but their memory lives on in our fair city, and not just within the headstuck memories of overeager teenagers trying to play “Same Love” over and over. Boston rock band Osaka Street Cutter took to a piano in front of MassArt on Huntington Avenue recently, and recorded their personal ode to the Boston Red Sox appearance in the World Series.
With the Olde Towne Team ready to take on those pesky Cardinals from St. Louis tonight at Fenway Park, Osaka released the acoustic track, “October Baseball,” today via YouTube.
It’s not too Sox specific — no weird lyrical wordplay involving “Ellsbury” or “Pedroia” — but it captures the magic of cold-weather baseball and the allure of the Fall Classic.
Osaka Street Cutter will be playing McGann’s on November 16, then stripping things down for an acoustic set at O’Brien’s Pub in November 22. If the Sox win it all, maybe they’ll bust this one out and drinks will be on the house, baby* (Just kidding this is Boston every drink costs money always and forever).
Last month, the band released their latest single, “Noisy Stabber.” Check it out below…
