Dan Blakeslee

Dan Blakeslee

New England native Dan Blakeslee is one of our favorite local singer-songwriters and a WERS regular. One WERS staffer, waiting for his performance, told me: “I love Dan Blakeslee, I see him out and about in Boston sometimes and he’s just great. He’s one of those real-deal guys who’s really doing it for the love [...]

Inside Live Music Week: Sara Morgan, Marketing Dir.

Even though WERS is a college-run radio station, we still get a little help from non-students such as Marketing Director Sara Morgan. After joining the station staff in July of 2011, Morgan began working on new ways to get our music news out apart from the airwaves. She helped WERS complete a successful Live Music [...]

Chairlift

Chairlift

Chairlift: They began as a trio, and then they turned into a duo, but somehow, five of them appeared at WERS for their on-air performance for Live Music Week. Patrick Wimberly and Caroline Polachek– along with their three other troubadours– have another month or so of tour ahead of them, but for this last weekend [...]

Po Boyz

Po Boyz

Po’ Boyz describe their sound as a “soulful gumbo of sounds, fearless souls and spirits.” While they’ve found a strong local following in Boston and have a weekly residency at the Middle East in Cambridge, their sound is deeply rooted in the South, particularly New Orleans, with a touch of 1970′s jam-band riffs. The band’s [...]

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker is more than a friend and fan-favorite at WERS, she’s a kindred spirit. Her new EP Perfectly Imperfect is being sold on her website for a name-your-own price starting at $7. Moving up from that, fans get all sorts of thank you gifts from a skype-songwriting lesson to an in-house concert. This kind of [...]

The Other End of the Phone

The Other End of the Phone

Live Music Week has officially kicked off and donations are flying in from supportive and dedicated listeners like you. We love hearing your stories and taking requests, but often times listeners don’t get to hear about the people taking down your requests and donations. Emerson College has a large list of volunteers who help out [...]

Futurity

Futurity

One would not expect that the Lisps were a group for an SRO pre record when they first walked in to the studio. Two of them yielding guitars, one a bass, one on drums, and a female co vocalist, with a tambourine thrown in. They are an experimental rock band first and foremost. When they [...]

Inside Live Mix

Inside Live Mix

Live Music Week is perhaps no more hectic than it is for Head Engineer Dave Labuguen  and the Live Mix team. ”It’s hectic, bands in, bands out,” says Labuguen, or The Labuges as he is known around WERS, “You gotta make ‘em sound great within a short period of time, which is what we train for. [...]

Jake Sorgen

Jake Sorgen

We kicked off this year’s Live Music Week with an acoustic, unplugged bang on The Coffee House this morning. Jake Sorgen, Cambridge-based singer-songwriter extraordinaire was ready to go bright and early for a live Coffee House Mini Concert. Jake has a new album coming out in early April called Sudden Myth, which he played three [...]
