Concertgoers, it’s time to celebrate the fact that you’re not British! Boo! They eat healthier food than us, usually! The worst! Grill up those hot dogs and forget your troubles this week with the upcoming concert forecast, which is sunny as it gets.
Tonight – Cayucas @ Great Scott
If this Santa Monica indie pop outfit isn’t a blip on your radar yet, now’s the time to change it. The four-piece has released two albums on the Secretly Canadian label in two years and are poised to become darlings of the scene with catchy keyboard hooks and their current single “High School Lover”. Catch them while they’re still playing small venues like Great Scott!
Thursday, July 4th – Susan Tedeschi @ The Esplanade
WERS favorite and Tedeschi Trucks band vocalist Susan Tedeschi is one of the headliners (right behind the Pops) at this year’s Esplanade celebration with fellow artists Ellis Hall, Howie Day, and more. With five Grammy nominations and a new album Made Up Mind making the rounds, this Boston-born lady always knocks the crowd dead with her powerhouse vocals and there’s no doubt this show will be packed with families and fans. The real question—will she duet “Collide” with Howie Day? My heart would probably cease to beat.
Saturday, July 6th - The Mowgli’s @ Brighton Music Hall
The Mowgli’s, our WERS Artist of the Week, came out of nowhere this year with monster single “San Francisco”, which has charted as high as No. 13 on the Billboard charts. Not bad for a band with two albums and an EP in under two years, and it’s easy to see why they’re the next big thing when you see the eight-piece band live. Their energy is as infectious as new release Waiting for the Dawn implies, and it’s a guaranteed sing-along party with the rest of the Brighton Music Hall crowd.
There it is, Americans! Three shows that’ll get you bleeding the red, white, and blue, and you can save the British acts for next week. Boo, British! P.S. Have you guys checked out the Glastonbury Festival videos streaming from England? Because they’re pretty great. See you next week!
