Just like that, music-lovers, the holidays are upon us and the concert season is all that’s left to keep us warm aside from that expensive Christmas cheer. Awesome is audible this week, so let’s get straight to it.
Thursday, November 15th, Friday, November 16th, and Saturday, November 17th – Amanda Palmer at The Paradise
Lexington, MA native Amanda Palmer has come a long way from her Dresden Dolls roots, being the first musical artist to crack a million dollars in support on Kickstarter this past summer. She’s currently touring in support of Theater is Evil, the resulting product, and is bringing down the house three nights in a row with insanity to spare.
Friday, November 16 – Matt and Kim at The Paradise
The Brooklyn duo who cut their teeth with early hits like “Daylight” is back to tour in support of this autumn’s Lightning, which tracks have been leaking from all season long. With a really unique, do-it-yourself stage setup, this is a live group with formidable energy that’s not to be missed.
Friday, November 16 – The Who @ TD Garden
It’s hard to imagine a WERS listener whose eyebrows don’t shoot up at this one– the Roger Daltrey music machine that’s been chugging for nearly half a century pulls into Boston this Friday, and people couldn’t be more excited. Though they haven’t released anew album since 2006’s Endless Wire, they’re the latest in the parade of 60’s and 70’s bands to reunite for a national tour, and who isn’t excited to hear a little Tommy?
Sunday, November 18 - Bob Dylan with Mark Knopfler @ TD Garden
The Garden gets a double dose of the old school this weekend, with Bob Dylan stopping by in support of his thirty-fifth (we know) album, Tempest. Former Dire Straits member Knopfler is bound to spice up what will be a set to remember– rumors are that some tracks featured will include some B-sides and the new, fourteen-minute track about the sinking of the Titanic.
That’s it for now, concert-goers! Take that money you were going to spend on your beloved and go see a great show this weekend– tis the season, right?
