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 […]

Big K.R.I.T. Live at The Middle East

Big K.R.I.T. Live at The Middle East

Leedz Edutainment has done it once again and brought another major hip hop act to Boston. The XXL Freshman Live 2013 Tour featuring Big K.R.I.T and Action Bronson came through the Bean. The talented Big K.R.I.T, who is known for receiving love from the Underground, got exactly that at The Middle East. The venue was […]

The Boxer Rebellion at Sinclair

The Boxer Rebellion at Sinclair

When you explain the potpourri of backgrounds in The Boxer Rebellion, it sounds like the set-up for a really terrible joke: a Nashville-native, two Englishmen, and an Australian walk into a bar… Of course, there’s no punch line to this unless “and blow the audience away with carefully crafted songs that sound like a mishmash […]

Joy Formidable at House of Blues

Joy Formidable at House of Blues

Rock music can, unfortunately, seem like a boys club at times. However, there will always be a proper hope for female musicians looking for heroes, whether it be in legends like Carrie Brownstein and Kim Gordon or in the hands of newer musicians, such as the Haim sisters or Rhiannon “Ritzy” Bryan of The Joy […]

Balto at Wormwood Park

Balto at Wormwood Park

Brewery Sessions brings together quite the attentive group to Wormwood Park for some acoustic sessions and a good beer. This night brought Portland’s Balto to the little greenery amongst the industrial Boston Harbor. Balto offered material from October’s Road and their most recent album, Monuments, for some nostalgia and wishing. Playing folk-based music, the band […]

The Wallflowers and Counting Crows

The Wallflowers and Counting Crows

It seems that no matter how rainy the day, there’s always a beautiful sunset in the seaport area by the Bank of America Pavilion. This was no different for The Wallflowers’ and Counting Crows’ show there earlier this week. The sea breeze floated through the air as Jakob Dylan and The Wallflowers took the stage […]

Mikal Cronin at Great Scott

Mikal Cronin at Great Scott

A stormy Monday turned into a clear skies for Mikal Cronin’s show at Great Scott in Allston, MA this Monday. It was an eventful night, with local artists manning a few tables, the Bruins giving a playoff beat-down to the Blackhawks, and free cupcakes, popsicles, and Capri Suns lining the bar. The sold out show […]
