tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

On a stage swathed in pink fabric and watched over by a swarm of blue-irised evil eyes, Tune Yards (ahem, tUnE-yArDs) with opener, Sylvan Esso, wowed Royale’s eager crowd. After watching both bands, it was clear that the headliner could easily hold the party on their own, but the more company, the better. The party was […]

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten and opening act Torres set out to dispel any misconceptions that singer-songwriter acts are tame, captivating a sold-out crowd at The Sinclair with two high-intensity sets. The artists may have preached to the choir though, as there was a palpable, excited buzz going through the young and smart-looking crowd before either act […]

Boston Calling Spring 2014

Boston Calling Spring 2014

Day One The cloudy sky, the temperatures barely hitting sixty degrees, and the cool breeze did not seem to phase the crowd of eager festival goers as they poured into City Hall Plaza for the first day of Boston Calling. Sporting everything from patchy overalls and purple hair to simple sweatshirts and baseball caps, people lined […]

Lake Street Dive Live at Royale

A large spread of instruments populated the stage, something akin to Arcade Fire’s extensive collection, illuminated by soft pink and blue lights, that created a very groovy atmosphere. I felt like the only young person in the room surrounded by a mainly middle aged crowd. The lights dimmed, and Ages and Ages took the stage – […]

S. Carey Live at Great Scott

S. Carey Live at Great Scott

A night at Great Scott in Allston can either be extremely fruitful or somewhat of a letdown. The myriad of artists that the venue brings in come from all different backgrounds and types of experience. However, Thursday April 17 seemed to be promising, as the night would bring S. Carey of Bon Iver fame to […]

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs… Fun stuff, eh? Whether or not you agree with Nixon’s controversial program that would jail hundreds of thousands of American citizens, I think we can all agree on one thing: it’s a pretty damn cool band name. And, in the same way that Nixon’s plan was dramatically expanded in the 80s […]

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

For a few blissed-out, sun-kissed years in Britain, dance music and rock found a way to coexist with one another in a way that combined the hippie, love-one-another mantras of the 60s with beat-driven, 303-squelchin’ Acid House straight from Chicago. The unlikely merger surely was a byproduct of a quickly evolving musical landscape, characterized by […]

Broken Bells Live at House of Blues

Broken Bells Live at House of Blues

I am hesitant to call Broken Bells a “supergroup”. Through credentials alone, the duo of James Mercer and Brian Burton almost definitely warrant the title. However, to me, the term “supergroup” conjures images of bloated rockstars, ego tripping and terrible names (Super Heavy vs. Chickenfoot in the battle of worst band names of all time). […]

White Denim Live at The Sinclair

White Denim Live at The Sinclair

  When James Petralli, Joshua Block, and Steven Terebecki brought guitarist Austin Jenkins into the band, they were onto something big. Ever since the release of their album D in 2011, White Denim have been on a steady climb to success. If you need evidence, let their two packed shows at The Sinclair do some […]
