Frightened Rabbit Live at HOB

Frightened Rabbit Live at HOB

It’s been a busy year for the Scottish quintet, Frightened Rabbit. The band consists of Scott Hutchinson , his brother Grant Hutchinson, Billy Kennedy, Andy Monaghan, and Gordon Skene and they released their State Hospital EP in September just a mere five months before the release of their fourth full-length record Pedestrian Verse. The set […]

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

When I met with Virginia native and San Francisco resident Thao Nguyen at The Sinclair I experienced the more soft-spoken and humorous side of the musician. Upon first meeting her she joked about her band The Get Down Stay Down’s decision to watch the “very challenging” Rush Hour in their dressing room. We spoke about […]

Jukebox The Ghost Live at Brighton

Jukebox The Ghost Live at Brighton

Just a little bit of quirky, a dash of wit, and a lot of energy are what came together to make Jukebox the Ghost’s show at Brighton Music Hall to make a memorable one. Opening for Jukebox the Ghost first was The Spring Standards, a New York based band consisting of members James Clear, Heather […]

Tame Impala Live at HOB

Tame Impala Live at HOB

Tame Impala is still feeling out its listener base in the U.S., but if a packed venue full of Bostonians positively drooling for the on-the-rise Australian act is any indication, they’re getting damn close. After openers and fellow Aussies The Growl opened the house with their garage sound, Kevin Parker’s ever-growing pet project took the […]

Kate Nash Live at Paradise

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa may be the best bar band in the world. To the tune of “Comrade Z”, heard live at the House of Blues, March 9, 2013, I found myself remembering a small, dark hotel cafe in northern Paris, where I once drank five-euro rum & cokes while a circle of locals strum and drum their […]

Animal Collective Live At HOB

Animal Collective Live At HOB

Animal Collective kicked off their tour promoting 2012 release Centipede Hz last night at the House of Blues, lighting up the stage with their signature electro-weirdness and tripped out sound.
