Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago

Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago

In 1991, Jane’s Addiction decided to call it quits and went out with a bang by organizing their own touring festival. With front man Perry Farrell taking the helm, the band hand-selected an extremely diverse lineup of artists, from post-punk rockers Siouxsie and the Banshees to industrial innovators Nine Inch Nails to rapper Ice-T, in [...]

Wavves Live at The Paradise

Wavves Live at The Paradise

The first time I ever saw Best Coast, they shared a bill with lo-fi surf rockers Wavves in a rather chilly fall. They took the stage before Bethany and her crew, totting beach balls, palm trees, and so much paraphernalia my brain was too in shock to even remember what it all was. Everyone around [...]

Smith Westerns Live at The Sinclair

Smith Westerns Live at The Sinclair

You wouldn’t know Cullen and Cameron Omori and Max Kakacek were itching to get back on the road from their laid-back personas, but with new album Soft Will to show off and the gradual shedding of the child prodigy label that followed them in their early career, they’ve come into their own musically and in [...]

Freddie McGregor Live at The Paradise

Freddie McGregor Live at The Paradise

Rockers welcomed Freddie McGregor and his son Daniel “Chino” McGregor, and it was an honor to not only interview them, but to see them perform at the Paradise Rock Club. Celebrating 50 years in the reggae industry, Freddie McGregor feels great and it is a great joy for him to still be spreading love threw [...]

Father John Misty Live at HOB

Father John Misty Live at HOB

Last night at the House of Blues was nothing but fun times in Babylon thanks to the always insane, ever-angular stage persona that is Father John Misty. After a terrific open from up-and-comers Wild Nothing, who have ravaged the summer festival circuit with a string of dates to come, Josh Tillman and friends entered the [...]

Imagine Dragons Live at the Pavilion

Imagine Dragons Live at the Pavilion

Imagine Dragons have come an incredibly long way since their days of performing six-hour long sets for casino players on the Las Vegas strip. Since their debut album Night Visions was released last September, the album has spawned three massive hits (“It’s Time,” “Radioactive,” and “Demons,”), been certified platinum, and launched the band into multiple [...]

Belle and Sebastian Live at the Pavillion

Belle and Sebastian Live at the Pavillion

It’s hard to listen to a Belle and Sebastian song without hearing it echo through the terrible plastic headphones I used to team up with an aging Walkman in high school (iPods are expensive on a snack bar employee salary), and holding a ticket that included the Scottish indie legends of yore in addition to Hoboken noise [...]

The Mowgli’s Live at Brighton

The Mowgli’s Live at Brighton

With a psychedelic drum set, some incense, and a playfully jazzy keyboard rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” during sound check, the tone of the evening was set well before the Mowgli’s took the stage. The Mowgli’s have been through Boston before with bands like Family of the Year and Youngblood Hawke, but this was their [...]

Cayucas at Great Scott

Cayucas at Great Scott

West Coast, meet East Coast. East Coast, meet West Coast. Summer started off relatively cool in Boston, but California natives Cayucas prompted a surge in the weather when the five musicians came to Boston to perform at Great Scott. Seventy degree breezes were cranked up to high nineties. The result was extracted  happiness thanks to [...]
