The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs… Fun stuff, eh? Whether or not you agree with Nixon’s controversial program that would jail hundreds of thousands of American citizens, I think we can all agree on one thing: it’s a pretty damn cool band name. And, in the same way that Nixon’s plan was dramatically expanded in the 80s […]

All A Cappella Live

This year’s All A Cappella Live was not only a competitive gathering of a cappella groups from the greater Boston area, but also a celebration of WERS 88.9’s sixty-fifth birthday.

The unlikely merger surely was a byproduct of a quickly evolving musical landscape, characterized by […]

Broken Bells Live at House of Blues

Broken Bells Live at House of Blues

I am hesitant to call Broken Bells a “supergroup”. Through credentials alone, the duo of James Mercer and Brian Burton almost definitely warrant the title. However, to me, the term “supergroup” conjures images of bloated rockstars, ego tripping and terrible names (Super Heavy vs. Chickenfoot in the battle of worst band names of all time). […]
