Concert Watch: Oct. 2 – Oct. 8

Atlas-GeniusA new month means a new set of shows! Let’s take a quick look at all the WERS favorites stopping in Boston to kick off October:

Wednesday, October 2 – ZZ Ward w/ The Wild Feathers @ Paradise Rock Club

The Down & Dirty Shine Tour comes to the Paradise Rock Club tonight with a major double header! ZZ Ward and the Wild Feathers both released their debut albums within the past year (Til the Casket Drops and The Wild Feathers, respectively) and quickly became public radio darlings. And they’re showing no signs of slowing down.

Tuesday, October 8 – Atlas Genius w/ Family of the Year and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. @ House of Blues

Another batch of “Ones to Watch” artists is coming to the House of Blues on Tuesday. Hailing all the way from down under, Atlas Genius found fast success when their debut single “Trojans” managed to sell over 45,000 copies before they were signed to a label. The song eventually peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, and Atlas Genius have already scored a second Top 10 Alternative hit with “If So”. It’s also little wonder that Atlas Genius would invite Family of the Year on tour, as the Family has previously toured with the likes of Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Good Old War as well.

Tuesday, October 8 – Boy @ Brighton Music Hall

German/Swedish female duo Boy already made quite a big splash with their debut album Mutual Friends overseas. Featuring the bouncy lead single “Little Numbers,” the album earned them a European Border Breakers Award (EBBA) in 2012 and the Hamburg Newcomer of the Year title in 2011. They wrapped up their first and previous North American tour with a show at Café 939 earlier this year, and now Boy are back for more with another show at the Brighton Music Hall on Tuesday.
