Concert Watch: Oct. 31-Nov. 3

The fall concert season is beginning to wind down already, music-lovers, but don’t miss the final strains of music before the Christmas music season is upon us! We can complain about the silver bells later, let’s stick to the music.  Donavan Frankenreiter, October 31st (Paradise Rock Club) Ring your Halloween in with surfer dude Donavon Frankenreiter, […]

“State Hospital” by Frightened Rabbit

“State Hospital” by Frightened Rabbit

As the water begins to ripple in anticipation for their fourth studio-album release reportedly coming in early 2013, fans of the Glasgow-originated quintet Frightened Rabbit are thrown a figurative lifeline in the form of State Hospital. Long–time fans have yet to see a full-length album since March 2010, with the generally positive reviewed Winter of […]

Green Day Cancels Shows, Moves Album Up

Green Day Cancels Shows, Moves Album Up

Green Day were in full throttle up until Billie Joe Armstrong’s freak out on stage at the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas this September. Their first album in an installment of three, ¡Uno!, was released at number two on the Billboard charts, and they had performances lined up into 2013. A couple days after […]

Artist Of The Week: The Rolling Stones

Artist Of The Week: The Rolling Stones

For this week’s Artist Of The Week we have picked a group whose name is synonymous with Rock ‘n Roll…. The Rolling Stones! The legendary group has just released a new single called “Doom And Gloom”. Can you believe that 2012 marks 50 years of The Rolling Stones? It’s true, the band has been bringing us classic […]

Heartless Bastards Live at The Royale

Heartless Bastards Live at The Royale

Considering that one of their latest singles is called “Got To Have Rock And Roll,” it makes total sense that the Heartless Bastards didn’t just give a typical and reserved indie-pop performance tonight. There were guitars cranked to eleven (both while they were being played, and while they were being smashed), Dave Colvin’s drum sticks […]

Walk Off the Earth at the Paradise

Walk Off the Earth at the Paradise

When a band admits that you’re the first Boston crowd that they’ve played to, it makes you feel special.  In what seemed like an all-out effort to make a good impression, The Mowgli’s kicked off the night with an incredibly energetic six-song set.  One of two opening bands for Walk Off the Earth, The Mowgli’s […]

Father John Misty at the Paradise

Father John Misty at the Paradise

The first thing that stood out when Jeffertitti’s Nile came on stage to open the show was the lead singer’s tight golden spandex pants and long purple hair. It was not long, however, before their music took the throne as the most interesting thing. They started with a spacious psychedelic intro to a song that […]
