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

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 […]

Disclosure Live at Cyclorama

Disclosure Live at Cyclorama

Wednesday nights in Boston don’t have a reputation for being particularly enthralling. Last night’s, however, was an exception. Down in the South End of Tremont Street, a long line like a black snake was curling out in front of Cyclorama. Cameramen paced about, photographing the queue of people who knew what was behind the doors. […]

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 […]
