Portugal. the Man Live at House of Blues

Portugal. the Man Live at House of Blues

Portugal. The Man brought a little piece of home with them when they stopped by the House of Blues this week. Towering over the band was a cutout outline of a mountain range, striking similarity to their home state of Alaska. The mountains would provide backdrop for the band’s projections throughout the night. After opening […]

The Dodos Live at the Paradise

The Dodos Live at the Paradise

As the majority of today’s generation moves online for their music, a great deal of things are lost. Kids no longer buy full albums; an intimacy with an artist isn’t based off that first-listen-over-a-radio; but even more often than both of those, an appreciation of album art is completely lost. Failing to hold a CD […]

Life Is Good Festival Day 2

Life Is Good Festival Day 2

What started with dark clouds soon parted for another sunny day at the second day of the Life Is Good Festival, good vibes clearing up the weather as the festival seems to manage every year. Part two of a stacked lineup was ready to get a move on, but not after families stopped by to […]

Life Is Good Festival Day 1

The Life Is Good Festival returned once again this fall and WERS was happy to support the two day, family-friendly festival on Prowse Farm in Canton, MA. Showcasing plenty of WERS artists, hands-on games, art activities, and various vendors, the festival raises money for kids in need, and this year they brought in over one […]

Washed Out Live at The Wilbur

Washed Out Live at The Wilbur

On a brisk mid-September evening, the assembly of flowers along the stage at the Wilbur Theatre emanated a warm homage to a fleeting summer. Vines of petals hung above the plethora of cymbals, effects pedals, keys, and guitar strings; and the green astroturf that sprawled along the front of the stage provided cushioning to neat, […]

Arctic Monkeys at the Paradise Rock Club

Arctic Monkeys at the Paradise Rock Club

When the Arctic Monkeys took the stage at the Paradise Rock Club this week, it was hard to tell if Alex Turner or Elvis was fronting the band. Amid flashing strobes, Turner walked to the microphone in a slim, pale green suit jacket with his hair slicked and quaffed to perfection. Sporting his new quiff […]

Volcano Choir Live at the Paradise

Volcano Choir Live at the Paradise

The one time that I had the opportunity to see Bon Iver, I felt completely lost. It was just so devastatingly beautiful; it didn’t feel right to just turn back to normal life without tracing everything over to make sense of it. Usually, I hate generalizing and connecting bands back to another because of a […]

Boston Calling Music Festival Day 2

Boston Calling Music Festival Day 2

The second leg of this year’s Boston Calling Music Festival is officially over, but audiences are still buzzing over the captivating performances witnessed Sunday night at Boston’s City Hall Plaza. Last spring’s line-up was no match for last night’s, which boasted musical diversity ranging from electronic dance music to hip-hop and everything in-between, continuing over […]

Interview: Haim at the Paradise

I was lucky enough to sit down with the three Haim sisters, Alana, Este, and Danielle, before their sold out show at the Paradise. We talked about their gradual and then swift rise to popularity, their favorite festival to play at, and Primal Scream. Alana: We were really surprised when we found out that we […]
