Concert Watch: Sept. 5th – 7th

Grace Potter and the nocturnalsGreetings, concertgoers! As you pack your backpacks for college, grad school, or your own kids, you’re going to need some sweet, soothing somethings to get you through those torturous school nights. Here’s what we’ve got on the menu for you this week!

Thursday, September 5th – Glenn Tilbrook (of Squeeze) @ Brighton Music Hall

It’s no surprise that the man responsible for creating the catchy hooks to “Cool For Cats” and “Another Nail in My Heart” has a solo repertoire that’s just as weird, fun, and occasionally insightful as his time as the frontman for Squeeze. The bonus here is that when Tillbrook travels solo, he tends to stick to smaller venues while bringing the same energy and verve that could back a stadium show.

Friday, September 6th – The Allman Brothers Band w/ Grace Potter and the Nocturnals @ Comcast Center

The Comcast Center presents us with a formidable double bill to kick off an amazing week, with the throwback Allman Brothers playing alongside Vermont-born Grace Potter. These increasingly popular bills are incredible to see live, as one can directly trace the influence from the Allmans down to Grace, and audiences are usually treated to a collaborative song between the two groups, a treat afforded only at these two-for-one musical extravaganzas.

Saturday, September 6 and Sunday September 7:  Boston Calling Music Festival @ City Hall Plaza

Because once wasn’t enough, Boston Calling returns for the second time in 2013 with a bill that sports Vampire Weekend, Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer, Deer Tick, and more, showing off a little more niche genre than we saw the first time around in May. Also featured more heavily in the fall installment of the knockout festival are more local artists, specifically Massachussetts natives Bearstronaut and You Won’t. Regardless of what genre is your flavor or if your best friend is in one of the bands, Boston Calling has something for everyone this time around.
