Concert Watch: Oct. 9 – Oct. 12

bellx1The government might still be shut down, but Boston’s concert scene is as active as ever! You will not believe who’s coming into town this week:

Wednesday, October 9 – Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck @ Wang Theatre

The first of this week’s shows stars a pair of legends! Brian Wilson was the mastermind behind some of the Beach Boys’ greatest work, including their landmark Pet Sounds album, and has even had a notable solo career of his own. Jeff Beck is a renown guitarist in his own right, having ranked 5th on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” and being so influential that he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: first as a member of the Yardbirds (which also featured Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page at different times) and as a solo artist. How will these two musical titans sound onstage together? Find out when they play at the Wang Theatre tonight!

Friday, October 11 – Bell X1 @ The Sinclair

Bell X1 had named themselves after the first plane to break the sound barrier, appropriate considering they’re one of the biggest acts to have come out of Ireland since U2! The band recently released their sixth studio album Chop Chop and will play at the Sinclair in Cambridge this Friday, but not before performing live, in-studio at WERS for you that same afternoon!

Saturday, October 12 – Kingsley Flood @ Paradise Rock Club

Kingsley Flood returns to their native Boston. Also featuring musicians from Washington, DC, this six-piece has won multiple awards from the Boston Music Awards and the Boston Pheonix Best Music Poll. You can find out what all the buzz is about when they play at the Paradise Rock Club this Saturday, October 12.
