J Mascis Live at The Sinclair

J Mascis Live at The Sinclair

When the road crew brings out a purple stool, purple amplifiers, purple music stand (complete with purple binder), and a microphone with what appears to be purple tape wrapped around it, it is reasonable to expect the upcoming act to be flashy and visually compelling. Those expectations, however, were shot down for all first-time audience […]

Pond Live at The Sinclair

Pond Live at The Sinclair

Pond has a reputation of being the wild younger brother of Australian psych rock band Tame Impala. Seeing that this is how many people learned of them, it’s difficult for Pond, consisting of many members of Tame Impala, to break free from the overshadowing association. After seeing Pond at The Sinclair in Cambridge, it is ever so clear […]

Boston Calling In Review

Boston Calling In Review

The bands, the people, the storm — everything that happened during the fall edition of Boston Calling right here. By Meaghan O’Brien SATURDAY Thought not without its bumps in the road, Boston Calling the Saturday Edition was a great day. The weather was not on our side, but although it delayed the party for a […]

Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

  Miniature Tigers brought an indie-pop party to Brighton Music Hall, joined by energetic openers Yellerkin, Finish Ticket, and The Griswolds. The show began early to accommodate the packed lineup, but most concertgoers came out on time. The young audience packed into the front area of the stage, nobody wanting to miss the opportunity to […]

Grizfolk Live at Great Scott

Grizfolk Live at Great Scott

The Box Tiger may have been a somewhat unexpected and rather genre-contending addition to WERS’ 65th birthday show with Grizfolk, but we could not have been happier to have them celebrate with us. Frontwoman Sonia Sturino had the crowd on its toes, one moment overly apologetic and the next delectably in-your-face. Either way, if the […]

Air Traffic Controller Live at The Sinclair

Air Traffic Controller Live at The Sinclair

Four Boston-based bands gathered at The Sinclair in a grand celebration of WERS’ 65th, bringing with them their own style of music, dance, and birthday cheer! Bent Shapes opened the evening with garage-charm and good humor aimed at a small but growing crowd. Formerly known as Girlfriends, the trio – guitarist Ben Potrykus, bassist Supriya Gunda, […]

Damon Albarn Live at Royale

Damon Albarn Live at Royale

It was a little over twenty-years ago when Blur released their seminal album, Parklife. Blur singer Damon Albarn’s toothy grin and tousled brown hair had been a fixture in the British music scene since 1991’s top-fifty UK hit, “She’s So High,” but Parklife was the first time his ambitions were sprawled over the entirety of […]

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

On a stage swathed in pink fabric and watched over by a swarm of blue-irised evil eyes, Tune Yards (ahem, tUnE-yArDs) with opener, Sylvan Esso, wowed Royale’s eager crowd. After watching both bands, it was clear that the headliner could easily hold the party on their own, but the more company, the better. The party was […]

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten and opening act Torres set out to dispel any misconceptions that singer-songwriter acts are tame, captivating a sold-out crowd at The Sinclair with two high-intensity sets. The artists may have preached to the choir though, as there was a palpable, excited buzz going through the young and smart-looking crowd before either act […]

Boston Calling Spring 2014

Boston Calling Spring 2014

Day One The cloudy sky, the temperatures barely hitting sixty degrees, and the cool breeze did not seem to phase the crowd of eager festival goers as they poured into City Hall Plaza for the first day of Boston Calling. Sporting everything from patchy overalls and purple hair to simple sweatshirts and baseball caps, people lined […]
