Hello there, concertgoers! In the wake of utter tragedy, Bostonians have already proved themselves able to rise to the task just days after the events at the Boston Marathon, and everyone could use some well-deserved musical therapy. Fortunately, there are a number of incredible artists coming through the area this week to keep your heart pumping.
Fleetwood Mac, TD Garden – April 18th
You can’t beat Stevie Nicks in a long black dress belting like the professional madwoman she is known to be, especially when backed by the likes of Lindsey Buckingham. They’re celebrating their 35-year anniversary, which included tribute album “Just Tell Me That You Want Me”, and are rumored to be working on new material to be released later this spring. If you’re not hooked by this point, there’s nothing else we can do for you.
The Joy Formidable, House of Blues – April 19th
Welsh alt rockers are what’s on the menu at the good ol’ House of Blues this week, celebrating the January release of their second studio album Wolf’s Law. Despite their origins, the majority of the album was recorded in Maine and The Joy Formidable has a decided soft spot for us New Englanders, so be sure to check out their Muse-esque sound before they hop back across the pond!
Killing Joke, Paradise Rock Club – April 20th
The English frontrunners of the post-punk movement from the late-70’s until now is playing a special show spanning their entire career this Saturday, playing “The Singles: 1979-2012”, all the way up to last year’s album MXXII. It’s definitely an original approach, revealing a set list prior to the show, but we think Killing Joke may have the right idea—the hits draw a crowd, don’t they?
There it is, music lovers, a lineup for the ages. Boston is strong in music and in spirit, so be sure to show your pride at your choice concerts this week!
