Lake Street Dive Live at Royale

A large spread of instruments populated the stage, something akin to Arcade Fire’s extensive collection, illuminated by soft pink and blue lights, that created a very groovy atmosphere. I felt like the only young person in the room surrounded by a mainly middle aged crowd. The lights dimmed, and Ages and Ages took the stage – […]

S. Carey Live at Great Scott

S. Carey Live at Great Scott

A night at Great Scott in Allston can either be extremely fruitful or somewhat of a letdown. The myriad of artists that the venue brings in come from all different backgrounds and types of experience. However, Thursday April 17 seemed to be promising, as the night would bring S. Carey of Bon Iver fame to […]

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs… Fun stuff, eh? Whether or not you agree with Nixon’s controversial program that would jail hundreds of thousands of American citizens, I think we can all agree on one thing: it’s a pretty damn cool band name. And, in the same way that Nixon’s plan was dramatically expanded in the 80s […]

All A Cappella Live

All A Cappella Live

This year’s All A Cappella Live was not only a competitive gathering of a cappella groups from the greater Boston area, but also a celebration of WERS 88.9’s sixty-fifth birthday. Before any a cappella groups had yet graced the stage, the audience of Emerson College’s Cutler Majestic Theater serenaded the station with Happy Birthday wishes. […]

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

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 […]
