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 […]

Dave Matthews Band at Comcast Center

Dave Matthews Band at Comcast Center

Dave Matthews Band returned to Mansfield, MA this past weekend for a two night stand at the Comcast Center. Few places are as lively as the massive Comcast Center parking lot before a Dave Matthews Band concert. The slabs of asphalt are packed tight not only by cars, but by tents, lawn chairs, and grills. […]

The Postal Service at Pavilion

The Postal Service at Pavilion

In 2003, The Postal Service gave us Give Up, but ten years later, the band found their fans holding the classic album up as something still so relevant. As a crowd of people who have grown with the album, The Postal Service made for a truly special night. The setlist of the show was predictable, […]

Best Coast at the Royale

Best Coast at the Royale

Let’s kick this bad boy off with a bold statement: Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast is the Jennifer Lawrence of front women. I realize this could potentially be a confusing proclamation for those who have somehow missed the J-Law craze that has swept our nation (see: Vice’s article titled “What Do Hate Groups Think Of […]

Charles Bradley Live at the Paradise

Charles Bradley Live at the Paradise

Charles Bradley is a man of soul in more ways than one. Besides having spent decades as a James Brown impersonator–one of the founding fathers of funk–Charles has opened a new chapter in his life, this time using his own name. Bradley has only been seeing his own name on the marquee before he takes […]
