Joe Pug on Coffeehouse

Joe Pug on Coffeehouse

Expression exuded from Joe Pug’s face as he sang and plucked away at his acoustic guitar in the WERS studio, one square-toed cowboy boot planted on the floor, the other resting on the crossbar of the stool he sat on. The tensing and relaxing of his brow only served to exaggerate the sentiment in his […]

Great Lake Swimmers Live In Studio

Great Lake Swimmers Live In Studio

Tony Dekker, Erik Arnesen, and Miranda Mulholland of Great Lake Swimmers stand infront of me, packing away their guitars, violins, and banjos. Their music is a pleasing combination of folk with a touch of twang and a great vocal duet. They just performed three songs off of their newest album, New Wild Everything, for a […]

The Kooks at the House of Blues

The Kooks at the House of Blues

If you were walking down the street, he may look like just another pubescent skinny hipster wearing tight jeans up to his belly button and a head of curls. But onstage at the House of Blues this past Saturday night, Luke Pritchard, the lead singer and guitarist of the English indie rock band The Kooks, transformed […]

On the Verge: honeyhoney

On the Verge: honeyhoney

Santo and Ben Jaffe, the two core members of California band honeyhoney, were incredibly amusing to witness in person with their back and forth wisecracks and playful sarcasm. Their conversational chemistry lends itself well to their music, which pulls from rootsy stylings and adds them to the roster of impressive new Americana and folk musicians. […]

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

“Let’s try it,” seemed to be the motto of the night for Alex Ebert, the lead singer of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. With a twelve-man band playing a brand new album, Here, coming out on May 29th, Saturday’s show at the Orpheum was all about experimenting with their largely expanded song set. “The […]

Regina Spektor at the Orpheum

Regina Spektor at the Orpheum

Regina Spektor knows what her audience wants, and there’s nothing she loves more than holding back to drive them nuts. The Orpheum buzzed Thursday evening after openers and Spektor’s good friends Only Son left the stage after a five-song set. The six-piece group (including, we kid not, a designated tambourine player) has accompanied Spektor on […]
