LITTLE JOE AND THE THRILLERS
Bostonist has found the Beantown's peanut gallery. I used to be in his audience quite regularly, and was fond of "Beauty Shop." If you're ever in Boston on a weekend, tell your cab driver to take you to the Cantab.

So you're prepared, Little Joe is approximately 4'9" tall, stands on a block, and is 82 years of age.

Cantab, by the way, means:
1. Especially used in abbreviations of academic degrees: Cantabrigiensis (Latin), belonging to Cambridge.
Example: BA Cantab

so in this case Cantab refers to one from Cambridge, Mass.

By comparison, the pope is 84 and we all think of him as really old, right? Little Joe is STILL lighting up a smoke-filled bar for hours every weekend night at 82.
