Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

For a few blissed-out, sun-kissed years in Britain, dance music and rock found a way to coexist with one another in a way that combined the hippie, love-one-another mantras of the 60s with beat-driven, 303-squelchin’ Acid House straight from Chicago. 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). [...]

White Denim Live at The Sinclair

  When James Petralli, Joshua Block, and Steven Terebecki brought guitarist Austin Jenkins into the band, they were onto something big. Ever since the release of their album D in 2011, White Denim have been on a steady climb to success. If you need evidence, let their two packed shows at The Sinclair do some [...]

St. Vincent Live at House of Blues

St. Vincent Live at House of Blues

If Emerson College were a musician, it would be St. Vincent. She incorporates interpretive dance into her song performances and title of her first album is from an episode of Arrested Development. The enigmatic indie rock artist delivered a charmingly hipster and wildly energetic performance at the House of Blues this Thursday. I arrived at [...]

Band of Horses Live at Somerville Theatre

Band of Horses Live at Somerville Theatre

This is how it happened: downtown Davis Square on a Tuesday night. Picture it chilly, a low 20 degrees, with the wind jostling through the streets as people made their way to the historical Somerville Theatre. The environment was right. The stage was set like a musician’s living room, complete with oriental rugs and an [...]

Lake Street Dive Live at The Sinclair

Lake Street Dive Live at The Sinclair

Leaning slightly into the microphone with hands planted firmly on her hips, Lake Street Dive frontwoman Rachael Price sings directly to every single person in the Sinclair. To the girls squeezed up center stage, to the man posted up on the wall next to the bar, to me crooning down from the corner balcony, Price [...]

Mazzy Star Live at The Paradise

Reunions can be a tricky thing. Finally, after ten years away, the band you loved in college is back! On one hand, you have the bands that are significantly older… and not as good… and it kind of feels like a big cash grab in order to fund their impending retirement. BUT, luckily for music [...]

Temples Live at Great Scott

Temples Live at Great Scott

For music fans, the city of Liverpool instantly conjures images of THAT band. You know them… They had the hair and the mustaches and made those albums that defined modern western music and wrote about a yellow submarine and Strawberry Fields… Anyway, THAT band played a pretty key-role in the psychedelia scene in the sixties [...]

Lucero and Titus Andronicus Live at the Paradise

Lucero and Titus Andronicus Live at the Paradise

“Alright, alright, we’re all here,” said Patrick Stickles, frontman for New Jersey’s Titus Andronicus. The band had just finished “A More Perfect Union,” and although the Paradise Rock Club was unfortunately void of Titus’ usual massive amoeba of happily thrashing punk fans, the tune was incredibly well received by diehards and supposed newcomers alike. In [...]

Albert Hammond Jr. Live at the Brighton

Albert Hammond Jr. Live at the Brighton

There is a certain bond shared amongst fans of The Strokes. Critics may deride their efforts, languishing in the popular opinion that they haven’t done anything quite as good as their career-defining Is This It, and the band themselves may sometimes come off as ambiguous and cryptic, but their fans are nothing but loyal. Coming [...]
