On the Verge: The Well Informed

On the Verge: The Well Informed

The band members of The Well Informed dress as smartly as their name implies. When they showed up at the WERS studio for their On the Verge segment this afternoon, the three musicians wore coordinating vests, ties, and brightly colored pants. The look is all part of their overarching artistic identity: as their Facebook page […]

St. Paul & The Broken Bones Live In Studio

St. Paul & The Broken Bones Live In Studio

The soulful powerhouse St. Paul & The Broken Bones was kind enough to stop by the WERS studio this afternoon to play a couple tunes off their new record, Half The City.  Surrounded by gospel and 70’s soul, lead singer Paul Janeway began the band out of his hometown of Chelsea, Alabama. Exposed to the Pentecostal […]

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 – […]

Stone Cold Fox Live In Studio

Stone Cold Fox Live In Studio

88.9 tries to bring in the most up-and-coming artists to the studio and a band that is self-described as a mix of old and new music, Stone Cold Fox is a group that is most definitely on the rise, but also crosses and blends multiple music genres while still staying current with the indie rock […]

Cloud Nothings Live In Studio

Cloud Nothings Live In Studio

“I might get mad and attack this mic, I get into it, I get emotional.” Dylan Baldi, better known as the mind behind Cloud Nothings, gave fair warning to us here at WERS before performing acoustic songs from his new record Here and Nowhere Else for Live Music Week. Despite saying it sarcastically and playfully, […]

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 […]

Dan Croll Live In Studio

Dan Croll Live In Studio

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 […]
