Wavves Live at The Paradise

Wavves Live at The Paradise

The first time I ever saw Best Coast, they shared a bill with lo-fi surf rockers Wavves in a rather chilly fall. They took the stage before Bethany and her crew, totting beach balls, palm trees, and so much paraphernalia my brain was too in shock to even remember what it all was. Everyone around […]

Smith Westerns Live at The Sinclair

Smith Westerns Live at The Sinclair

You wouldn’t know Cullen and Cameron Omori and Max Kakacek were itching to get back on the road from their laid-back personas, but with new album Soft Will to show off and the gradual shedding of the child prodigy label that followed them in their early career, they’ve come into their own musically and in […]

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

When you think of kid’s music, what do you see? Freddy Spaghetti, Raffi? A jaded hipster in a colorful costume alluding to some bizarre form of Brazilian Anime? Or some shyster trying to mesmerize infants into action like Mogatu hypnotizing Derek Zoolander? Rolie Polie Guacamole skips stones over those clichés and splash onto the scene […]

Reagle Music’s Les Miserables Live In Studio

Soft Focus Live In Studio

Soft Focus Live In Studio

“I want my burrito, Dad!” Sam Glassberg shouts as he recounts a story about a family he saw on the T with fellow bandmates Joe Holcomb and Garren Orr. The good-humored chatter and playfulness continues during their warm up, but soon the band Soft Focus slowly lets the sound of steady drums and slow-picking guitar […]

Little Boots Live at Sinclair

Little Boots Live at Sinclair

Little Boots first hit the scene in 2009 with the release of her debut album, Hands, a strong night-on-the-town album that earned her favorable comparisons to contemporary Synth-Pop singers like Ellie Goulding and La Roux’s Elly. Now, four years later, Little Boots is continuing to bring the beats while taking on a more aural and […]

Dillon Francis at House of Blues

Dillon Francis at House of Blues

Moomnahton DJ-extraordinaire Dillon Francis has seen his fame skyrocket in the past year, and his show at the house of Blues last Wednesday was a perfect example of why. With a packed set list, lots of heavy DJing, and a stage setup guaranteed to get even the most skeptical raver dancing, Francis’s “Wurld Turr” (yes, […]

Excision Live at House of Blues

Excision Live at House of Blues

Dubstep superstar Excision stopped by Boston’s House of Blues on Friday night as his latest stop on his “Execution Tour.” Don’t be worried by this menacing label; it merely refers to a 28 foot wide, 15 foot tall video mapped masterpiece that displays a proud 420 square feet of 3D video screen mapping and of […]
