Revo Radar: Steve Aoki

If you’re new to the EDM (Electric Dance Music) culture, then you should be familiar with one of the most recently spoken and mainstreaming artist, Steve Aoki. Aoki, or as others love to call him “Asian Jesus”, has been around longer than one might expect. Not only has he been working for past decade, but [...]

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 [...]

Feist Live at House of Blues

Feist Live at House of Blues

Canadian singer Feist is most widely known for her song “1234,” a track featured in numerous commercials and feel-good videos. When she took the House of Blues’ stage this Monday however, she stayed away from her popular track, instead delving into other works. She didn’t need a counting song to show why she’s still a [...]

On the Verge: Plants and Animals

Every Tuesday at 4:15pm, WERS highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming in our weekly On The Verge series. This week we are featuring Montreal based indie-rockers, Plants And Animals! Plants And Animals were formed back in 2004 by Warren Spicer (vocals and guitars), Nic Basque (vocals, bass, keys, guitars) and Matthew Woodley (drums, vocals). [...]

Andrew Bird Live In Studio

Andrew Bird Live In Studio

Making a name for yourself is hard to do in a time where new bands are constantly emerging, begging for the spotlight and labeling themselves with a genre. Andrew Bird, whose first album came out in 1996, has worked diligently not only to come up with a trademark sound, but to defy simple stereotypes. “I [...]

Good Old War at the Paradise

Good Old War at the Paradise

Some musicians are rock stars and let the lights separate them from the crowd. A number are inverted cabin dwellers, too timid to engage with the crowd. Others are worried about their future and plan every sentence they will say onstage. But folk band Good Old War is none of these; they’re a family with [...]

On the Verge: The Mastersons

Fresh off the road with Steve Earle, clad in jeans, a white scarf, and black hats; the husband and wife duo The Mastersons joined us for an On The Verge this afternoon. Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore released their debut as a band, Birds Fly South, back in April. When asked about composing the songs, Chris [...]

“Stars and Satellites” by Trampled By Turtles

Trampled By Turtles’ sixth album in eight years, Stars and Satellites, is in many ways a fine introduction to the band who stand as one of the rare few that unpretentiously deserve a hyphenated genre classification: let’s go with “post-punk bluegrass” for now. The album opens with “Midnight On The Interstate”, which infuses some pop [...]
