Nada Surf at the Paradise

Nada Surf at the Paradise

New York rockers Nada Surf stopped by the Paradise Rock Club last night as their fall tour comes to a close. With Eternal Summers backing them on the bill, the night began with a solid set of lo-fi jams from the Roanoke, Virginia natives. Fronted by guitarist and lead vocalist Nicole Yun, Eternal Summers were [...]

Japandroids at the Paradise

Japandroids at the Paradise

The odds were so far stacked against them that it seemed like victory was almost impossible. It was 2 against 930, one of the largest groups they’ve ever had to face in Boston, and supplies were running low; only a handful of picks and some spare guitar strings were left after their many other conquests. [...]

Kaki King at Brighton Music Hall

Kaki King at Brighton Music Hall

Word of mouth has it that Kaki King puts on a memorizing show. Word of publication has it that she’s a “Guitar God” (Rolling Stone). Word of nomination has it that she almost nabbed a Golden Globe. Yet for all these words, it’s funny Kaki King chooses to perform mainly instrumental music instead of singing. She [...]

Dinosaur Jr. at the Paradise

Dinosaur Jr. at the Paradise

Fans at last night’s sold out Dinosaur Jr. show at The Paradise Rock Club were in for a treat as the legendary alternative-rock band delivered a delightful set full of classic hits as well as new material. Setting the mood for the evening was opening band Hush Arbors. The Charlottesville, Virgina based band’s blend of [...]

Sky Ferreria at T.T. the Bear’s

Sky Ferreria at T.T. the Bear’s

While waiting for the opening act to begin performing at the Sky Ferreira show at TT the Bear’s, it became apparent the type of people who are listening to Sky. In between the sporadic moments of temporary blindness from the flashing of digital cameras taken by hands with Xs aimed at themselves, the room revealed [...]

Of Monsters and Men at the Orpheum

Of Monsters and Men at the Orpheum

“We kind of feel far away from home tonight,” admitted Of Monsters and Men front-man, Ragnar Þórhallsson, to the sold-out audience at the Orpheum Theatre in between songs Monday night. It’s easy to understand why the seven-piece indie-rock sensation feels a little misplaced on their recently embarked-upon tour across North America. Originally from Iceland, the [...]

Bob Dylan at TD Garden

Bob Dylan at TD Garden

Nothing lets the excitement of a well-booked concert bill sink in like the evening’s printed poster with both band names scrawled across it. Fans proudly held tour posters to their sides at last night’s concert at TD Garden where Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler on the same piece of thick paper served as a time [...]

Husky Live at Great Scott

Husky Live at Great Scott

Pulling in a large, energetic crowd for a late, mid-week concert in a small venue can be a daunting task for any band, but based off of the powerful performances from Husky and Hannah Georgas last night at Great Scott, it was evident that both of them were up to the challenge. To start the [...]

Sharon Van Etten at the Paradise

Sharon Van Etten at the Paradise

Sharon Van Etten has a good habit of touring with equally as impressive and underrated musicians as herself. From indie rockers Shearwater to Boston-favorite Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Etten’s openers repeatedly surprise crowds by bringing just as much a show to the stage as the headliner herself. If his name wasn’t recognizable enough, Damien Jurado [...]

Tame Impala at The Royale

Tame Impala at The Royale

It’s not always a good thing when a show is sold out. Sometimes that means half the audience really only bought tickets to hear some catchy single, and they won’t stop rudely shouting out their requests until their demands are met. Other times it means that the venue is honestly too small for it’s undertaking, [...]

It will be a night filled with school spirit, positive energy, and fun for any person who loves Emerson College. Proceeds will go to Emerson Scholarships and Emerson A cappella.
