Hello, sweet concert-goers! This week is a doozy in terms of terrific acts coming through—a shame if you should actually be training for the Marathon, but let’s be serious. A Dylan-Dawes double bill or drown in your own sweat? We’re just sayin’.
Tonight, April 3rd and Tomorrow, April 4th: They Might Be Giants at the Paradise
The kings of weird are back for their thirtieth year—John Flansburgh and John Linnell met in Lincoln, MA in high school, started recording weird songs on their friends’ answering machines, and the rest is history. With 1990’s Flood gone platinum and their three children’s albums gold, the pair is back with Nanobots for 2013 and two solid nights at the Paradise. As long as Particle Man is coming, we’re there.
Saturday, April 6th: Bob Dylan and Dawes at the Mullins Center
Now here’s the double bill we’ve been waiting for. Rising stars and recent WERS visitors Dawes are collaborating in Western Massachusetts this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited. With Dylan’s recent release Tempest and Dawes’ Stories Don’t End being released next week, there’s no limit to the possibilities this show offers.
Sunday, April 7th: WERS Presents: ALL A CAPPELLA LIVE! 2013 at the Cutler Majestic Theater
This Sunday marks one of WERS’s biggest events of the year—five terrific a cappella groups (Columbia Nonsequitur, the Wellesley Widows, the Chorallaries of MIT, the Harvard Opportunes, and Brandeis VoiceMale) face off for the title of Best in Boston. Not only will you see the hosts, your judges, and your competitors, but there will be special performances from groups like Emerson Achoired Taste, Ball in the House, Emerson A Cappellics Anonymous, and The Newtones!
There you have it, concert-goers—this week is a killer lineup!
