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 […]

Menomena at Brighton Music Hall

Menomena at Brighton Music Hall

It’s not enough to say that Menomena is just another experimental indie rock band from Portland that uses a saxophone on a couple songs and has some popular animated music videos on YouTube. The five musicians on stage tonight at the Brighton Music Hall have so much talent between themselves that is unfortunately not represented […]

Crystal Castles at House of Blues

Crystal Castles at House of Blues

On October 6, we had a chance to experience a different direction in the EDM artist we tend to cover. That’s right — we went to see Crystal Castles at the House of Blues. The experimental electronic group consists of vocalist Alice Glass and producer Ethan Kath. This team has been around since 2004 and […]

Perfume Genius at Johnny D’s

Perfume Genius at Johnny D’s

About a hundred people sat at tables for the intimate show Perfume Genius would put on at Johnny D’s in Sommerville, although it felt more like fifty people in the room because of how close we were to one another. The stage sat in the center surrounded by brick walls, neon signs, and an older […]

The Wallflowers at the Paradise

The Wallflowers at the Paradise

It’s almost easy to see why ‘90s alternative roots rock group The Wallflowers changed the band’s name from The Apples all those many years ago. Fronted by Jakob Dylan, the band’s understated confidence brings with it a presence that is both relaxed and mesmerizing all at the same time. For those who attended last night’s […]

Jack White at Agganis Arena

Jack White at Agganis Arena

The bright lights in the crowded Agganis Arena on Friday night dimmed and the crowd lurched toward the stage in one swift, collective movement, their arms outstretched, a chorus of screams echoing inside of the spacious venue as an eclectic grouping of fans waited for one of music’s most talented men to take the stage. […]

First Aid Kit at the Royale

First Aid Kit at the Royale

Climbing the many flights of stairs, the crowds passed bronze angel statues and when we reached the stage it was small, intimate, and ethereal. Moulin Rouge-esque lounges were up above and a large reflective floor was below – it was empty at first, but a little girl soon used it as a dance floor. Over […]

Tommy Trash at Prime Boston

Tommy Trash at Prime Boston

As if Boston didn’t have enough electro music flowing through the streets, the electronic wave continues to spread and this week we were happy to cover Thomas Olsen, better known as Tommy Trash at Prime. This has to be one of those nights were you must be insane to go out on a Sunday but […]

Grizzly Bear at the Orpheum Theater

Grizzly Bear at the Orpheum Theater

Grizzly Bear’s concert last night at the Orpheum Theatre put me in a position where I was seeing a band days after the release of new material. In preparation, I spent the last few days forcibly familiarizing myself with their 4th full-length album, Shields, released on September 18th. Grizzly Bear’s albums tend to be “growers”, […]

Ben Howard at the Paradise

Ben Howard at the Paradise

The weather Saturday night could not have been better for waiting in line for a great concert, which was lucky for the huge crowd that turned up for Ben Howard’s show at the Paradise Rock Club. The line stretched far down the sidewalk and around the block, made up of a variety of Howard fans: […]
