Hello, concert-goers! This week is the first stop in Boston for a great deal of acts who have been out of town for a while, so it’s our job to give them our biggest Bahston welcome. By that I mean, please do not spit on their shoes. It’s a great week for music, so let’s get to it!
Tonight, April 10th: Cold War Kids at the Paradise
Good luck getting into this one, kiddos. The Cold Wars kids are back with Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, released just last week, and they’ve sold out the Paradise a trillion times over. A band with an alternative sound that really knows how to shake an audience up, these guys are not to be missed– that is, if you can get in the door.
Tonight, April 10th: Los Lobos at Narrows Center for the Arts
There is no living band that has made Chicano rock more successfully mainstream than LA group Los Lobos, and they’re celebrating their fortieth year as a group this evening. Though their last studio album was in 2010, nineteen full albums to pull material from, and it’s nearly a guarantee you’ll get a listen to “Kiko and the Lavender Moon”. What’s not to love?
Friday, April 12th: Muse at TD Garden
It’s funny to think that three years ago, MTV was only just “introducing” Muse to America, and they’ve subsequently become one of the hugest arena acts in the world. Around since the mid-90’s, the English group is finally enjoying some well-deserved success, and if you’re a fan of the loud, the Bowie-esque, and the inevitable laser light show that will ensure, you know where to be Friday night.
There you have it! Three huge acts gracing us with their presence for a few glorious moments. Who needs marathons?
