Parlour Bells Request the Last Dance of Faces

When the Boston Globe recently reported that developers were planning to throw a predemolition party for the long defunct and dilapidated Faces nightclub, Parlour Bells naturally felt compelled to ask for one last dance with the fallen discotheque. After all, it was in the back lot of Faces where Glenn di Benedetto and Nate Leavitt found the perfect setting for Derek Kouyoumjian’s crime scene photography that would become the signature artwork for their debut release Heart Beatings. The band has created a Facebook page to gather support and petition the developers that they perform at the event, and even the Boston Phoenix has thrown their support behind the band’s effort to bid adieu to what has become both an eyesore but also a gritty, even romanticized icon of the Bay State’s landscape.
