Yeasayer at the House of Blues

Yeasayer at the House of Blues

As Old Man Winter descended upon Boston, Yeasayer fans trekked through the storm with scarfs wrapped around their faces and boots sloshing through the wintery muck. Despite the onslaught of awful weather, fans breathed a sigh of relief as they found a dry and warm spot nestled in the House of Blues last night. With […]

Heartless Bastards Live at The Royale

Heartless Bastards Live at The Royale

Considering that one of their latest singles is called “Got To Have Rock And Roll,” it makes total sense that the Heartless Bastards didn’t just give a typical and reserved indie-pop performance tonight. There were guitars cranked to eleven (both while they were being played, and while they were being smashed), Dave Colvin’s drum sticks […]

Walk Off the Earth at the Paradise

Walk Off the Earth at the Paradise

When a band admits that you’re the first Boston crowd that they’ve played to, it makes you feel special.  In what seemed like an all-out effort to make a good impression, The Mowgli’s kicked off the night with an incredibly energetic six-song set.  One of two opening bands for Walk Off the Earth, The Mowgli’s […]

Father John Misty at the Paradise

Father John Misty at the Paradise

The first thing that stood out when Jeffertitti’s Nile came on stage to open the show was the lead singer’s tight golden spandex pants and long purple hair. It was not long, however, before their music took the throne as the most interesting thing. They started with a spacious psychedelic intro to a song that […]

Cat Power at the House of Blues

Cat Power at the House of Blues

“Welcome to the holy church of nobody, I am your pastor” said opening act Willis Earl Beal to start the night, wearing a shirt with a dead smiley face reading “nobody”. The majority of people at the show did not know who he was, and Beal knew this, so to start the show he sang […]

Dum Dum Girls at Brighton Music Hall

Dum Dum Girls at Brighton Music Hall

The crowd at the Brighton Music Hall grew restless as the glowing red numbers on the clock above the stage ticked by. At 10:56 the Dum Dum Girls finally took the stage. Each dressed in a black lacy ensemble and sporting the same straight across bangs, the quartet conveys a look that is intimidatingly cool; […]

The Mountain Goats at House of Blues

The Mountain Goats at House of Blues

The Mountain Goats are the band that your friend recommended you to – maybe because you were going through a rough time or just had some crazy realization about life. Upon your discovery of them maybe you kept that song’s meaning to yourself. Maybe you got to see them live, at the House of Blues […]

Divine Fits at the Royale

Divine Fits at the Royale

By their own admission, Divine Fits are not a supergroup. However, last night at their Boston debut at the Royale, they definitely looked and sounded like one. Formed by Britt Daniel, the leader of indie giants Spoon, Dan Boeckner, of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs, and Sam Brown, of New Bomb Turks, the band even […]

Beach House at the Wilbur

Beach House at the Wilbur

When explaining the music of Beach House, it’s hard to come up with anything better than “dream pop”. The group has both invented and perfected the niche genre, and Victoria LeGrand and Alex Scally (with excellent touring drummer Daniel Franz in tow) took their act to The Wilbur in Boston’s theater district last night, giving […]
