The Amazing Live In Studio

The Amazing Live In Studio

Swedish band The Amazing came to the WERS studio fully loaded with an arsenal of instruments and pedals. With two guitars, one 12-string guitar, bass, and drums, it looked like things were about to get loud. The band delivered the noise, but not in the way one would expect. Bands with this many layers of [...]

The Killers at Agganis Arena

The Killers at Agganis Arena

It seems like days ago that a little band from Nevada stormed onto the radio rock scene with Hot Fuss; out of nowhere, The Killers were invading the airwaves with hook after hook. Eight years, six million records sold, and countless catchy choruses later, the Killers are selling out arenas. To be fair, though, this [...]

Tegan and Sara Live In Studio

Tegan and Sara Live In Studio

Canadian duo Tegan and Sara are, in a way, icons. Female-fronted groups are by no means a new revolution, but the surge they’ve created since beginning in 1995 has wound up patching cracked hearts most teenagers didn’t know were torn in the first place – and getting Grammy nominations because of it. As identical twins, [...]

Pippin at American Repertory Theater

The American Repertory Theater’s new production of pippin instantly earns my bias because 1. I love circus 2. I Love Pippin. And 3. I’m in Boston. Should you also meet these three criteria then this show will be also be fantastic event that you don’t want to miss out on. The main problem with staging [...]
