The last time we stopped at Olneyville New York System, most of the acoustic anarcho-punk band Blackbird Raum were holding down a booth and Rick Rolle, who prefers to be known as DJ Soundscape, had just taken a stool at the counter. We had heard that the wiener shop was a big draw after the clubs let out (it sells through a sliding window until 3 a.m. on weekends), but it was only lunchtime. On a weekday.
Apparently even rockers have to eat lunch, and the Olneyville New York System wiener seems to especially appeal to people who make rhythmic loud noise for a living. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
