From March 27 to May 2, 2015, the Lyric Stage of Boston will be putting on the production of City of Angels. Director Spiro Veloudos brought along a few cast members as part of WERS’ Standing Room Only program. They gave us all a taste of the music from the play as well as some […]

River Whyless Perform LIVE at WERS Studios

River Whyless Perform LIVE at WERS Studios

  Their sound is echoing, if not a little haunting, but it doesn’t take long before their drumming beats lead into more uplifting energies. River Whyless creates music that takes you on a journey—through space and time, through emotions and stories. They spin songs out of the setting around them, from their North Carolina home, […]

Broods Brings Intensity to Boston Venue

Broods Brings Intensity to Boston Venue

  Georgia Nott, with her booming vocals, and Caleb Nott, with his impeccable synth skills, make up the brother-sister duo known as Broods. Broods are a New Zealand based and Lorde approved indie-electric pop band. The siblings’ debut album Evergreen is surely one to invest in if you have not done so already. The tracks […]

Have Mercy Frontman Talks Hometown Show

Have Mercy Frontman Talks Hometown Show

Last week in Baltimore, Emo-Rock band Have Mercy, kicked off their first headlining tour with a hometown show at the Ottobar. I was lucky enough to sit down with the lead vocalist and guitarist, Brian Swindle, to discuss the future of the band. Have Mercy has gained a lot of traction and popularity since releasing […]

Ryan Adams Live at The Wang Theatre

Ryan Adams Live at The Wang Theatre

Boston gave Ryan Adams something good when he played the Wang Theatre on Tuesday night. He gave it right back. Everything you’d expect on a Adams concert checklist got ticked off and everyone left smiling. Let’s get this argument out of the way, though: the Wang wasn’t meant for concerts like this. It’s multi-storied, awkwardly […]

Hozier Live at The Paradise

Hozier Live at The Paradise

This Halloween, Hozier rung in the holiday right by stunning an eager audience with his haunting vocals and adorably spooky decorations. On a stage adorned with jack-o-lanterns and skeletons, Hozier and opener James Bay jammed in costume and make up, appeasing the frantic crowd—many of whom had stood waiting in the cold for over an […]

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 […]

By Meaghan O’Brien SATURDAY Thought not without its bumps in the road, Boston Calling the Saturday Edition was a great day.
