Girls Guns and Glory is getting a boost from Chad Ochocinco. The Boston rock band has become a favorite of the new Patriot, who tweeted to his more than 2 million followers on Saturday: “Had an opportunity to hear Girls Guns n Glory perform at Toby Keiths restaurant tonight. I’ve played the song #UniverseBegan 73 times already.’’ Later in the weekend, Ochocinco tweeted: “Prius flow blasting Girls Guns n Glory song entitled Universe Began headed to Starbucks to eat dinner. Enjoy your Labor Day.’’ Girls frontman Ward Hayden said that when he and his bandmates performed at Toby Keith’s restaurant at Patriot Place the other night, they had no idea that Ochocinco was in the audience with some of his teammates. Hayden was told by his merchandising people that the group of Pats, which included Julian Edelman, bought up every CD on the table (about 20 discs) during the set break. “It’s definitely cool,’’ Hayden told us, yesterday. “It’s cool that [Ochocinco] has interesting taste in music.’’ Hayden told us that the band has a great history with the Pats; former QB Scott Zolak has also spoken out about his love of the band. Perhaps the team will show up when the band plays Club Passim tomorrow.
