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 […]

Polica Live at Paradise Rock Club

Polica Live at Paradise Rock Club

Life as a buzz band must be both thrilling and exhausting. Quickly thrust into the spotlight, a band must learn how to swim or be ravenously eaten up by critics and disappointed fans alike. Crazy how much excitement one or two songs that can create, ramping up expectations for bands who shouldn’t have to worry […]

The Head and the Heart Live at Royale

“We’re The Head and the Heart and we’re from Seattle, Washington,” said Josiah Johnson to the audience of the Royale Friday night. A simple introduction for a group whose popularity has been rapidly increasing since the release of their sophomore album, Let’s Be Still. They didn’t need more introduction that that, quickly plunging into the […]

King Khan & the Shrines Live at Brighton

King Khan & the Shrines Live at Brighton

The best way to describe a King Khan & the Shrines show is “never not weird,” and that’s the consensus after being to three shows inside of 2013 alone. They returned to Brighton Music Hall on Tuesday night in support of their new album, and brought the weird with a touch of classy this time– […]

Cold War Kids Live at HOB

Cold War Kids Live at HOB

Friday night at the House of Blues, Cold War Kids, supported by PAPA, shook the floor with their music, all under the gaze of a reclining skeleton that graced the cover of their Loyalty to Loyalty. They couldn’t have asked for a more excited crowd; they interacted with the band, danced with reckless abandon, called […]

Rose Windows Live at T.T. the Bear’s

Rose Windows Live at T.T. the Bear’s

This past year, Rose Windows saw thick anticipation for their debut album, The Sun Dogs, and delivered with a solid piece of storytelling. The fluid imagery of often nature-type paintings of a situation blend with heavy mystical instrumentals for layers that surround the scene being portrayed. As vocalist Rabia Shaheen Qazi builds belting cries and […]

Nine Inch Nails Live at TD Garden

Nine Inch Nails Live at TD Garden

It was only a mere four years ago that Trent Reznor kicked up his boots, put some amps and guitar pedals on eBay and declared that Nine Inch Nails were no longer a touring band. The “final” tour, the then aptly titled “Wave Goodbye Tour,” saw the band perform at some of the biggest amphitheaters […]
