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 […]

Cat Power at the House of Blues

Cat Power at the House of Blues

“Welcome to the holy church of nobody, I am your pastor” said opening act Willis Earl Beal to start the night, wearing a shirt with a dead smiley face reading “nobody”. The majority of people at the show did not know who he was, and Beal knew this, so to start the show he sang […]

“Cedar + Gold” by Tristan Prettyman

“Cedar + Gold” by Tristan Prettyman

In her third album, Ceder + Gold, Tristan Prettyman has bared all. Chronicling the intimate and personal tales from her split with former fiancee and fellow singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, Prettyman has created a record that reflects a very different part of her life than her first two. The cheerful acoustic songs of love and happiness […]

Dum Dum Girls at Brighton Music Hall

Dum Dum Girls at Brighton Music Hall

The crowd at the Brighton Music Hall grew restless as the glowing red numbers on the clock above the stage ticked by. At 10:56 the Dum Dum Girls finally took the stage. Each dressed in a black lacy ensemble and sporting the same straight across bangs, the quartet conveys a look that is intimidatingly cool; […]

Blur Announce Track Listing for Parklive

Blur Announce Track Listing for Parklive

English rockers Blur gained a lot of attention over the summer when the Olympic Committee announced that the band would be playing for the London games’ closing concert. At the time, this was believed to be a one time reunion show, but has since been extended by the band confirming that they will be headlining […]

Revo Radar: Puppet on Crack

Revo Radar: Puppet on Crack

If you’ve been on the Beatport website over the past week or so, you’ve probably noticed the song that loads up on the home page. The track is called “The Navajo Jack” by The Puppet on Crack, an up-and-coming producer from the UK. I’ve personally been following this artist for the better part of a […]
