Good day, concertgoers! If you’re still recovering from the wonderment that was Boston Calling and the subsequent wonderment that will be Boston Calling 2 this September, we’ve got the perfect antidote—more music! Rebound from your rainy Memorial Day weekend in a snap with these fabulous upcoming shows:
Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration, TD Garden – Thursday, May 30th
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings last month, there’s been thousands that have stepped up to the plate and supported the Menino-sanctioned One Fund, but there has been no musical gathering more influential than the Boston Strong concert being staged tomorrow at the Garden. Featuring some of the most enormous acts to emerge from Boston and beyond—Aerosmith, Jason Aldean, J. Geils Band, Boston, Dropkick Murphys, and more—join comic Dane Cook and Stephen Wright to benefit the cause in a more spectacular way than ever before.
The Uncluded, The Sinclair – Thursday, May 30th
For those of you in the mood for a more low-key, visceral experience this Thursday night, head over to the Sinclair in Cambridge to see the new Aesop Rock-Kimya Dawson collaboration, The Uncluded. Hailing from separate corners of the underground-indie universe (he in rap and she in folk), the two producers wrote and performed the entirety of their album Hokey Fright over the course of the year all over the country. It’s the sort of show where you come for the talent and stay for the genuine friendship the two unlikely collaborators have fostered.
Coeur de Pirate, Paradise Rock Club – Thursday, June 6th
The twenty-three-year-old Canadian indie (known as Beatrice Martin on paper) has consistently gathered clout stateside since her debut in 2007, bringing a new wave to the French music scene in Quebec. She performs in and out of groups like Armistice but sticks mainly to her solo act, promoting latest album Blonde (for which she was nominated for a Felix for Album Producer of the Year) at the Paradise next week.
That’s it for this week, concert-goers—keep coming back for the best of the best each and every Wednesday!
