Revo Radar: Above & Beyond

It’s a crazy world out there and sometimes all we need is a little bit of group therapy to keep us all together. When I hear the words “group therapy”, my mind immediately links to the English trance group, Above & Beyond. For over a decade, Johno Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamaki have worked [...]

Why? at The Middle East

Why? at The Middle East

  It’s been just under a year since indie hip-hop band Why? came to Boston. The last time the group was here, fans were treated to an intimate show with an “unplugged” vibe – a special treat, for sure. Their stop at The Middle East last night, however, gave fans a chance to throw their [...]

Revo Radar: Zeds Dead

“Zeds Dead, baby. Zeds Dead!” In this case, I’m not just reciting the infamous line from Quetin Taratino’s Pulp Fiction. I’m talking about the Canadian duo that goes by Zeds Dead. After sampling that quote in their song “White Satin”, this has become their trademark saying for fans wherever they go. Not to be mistaken [...]

The Left End: Interview With Callers

Recently, The Left End was lucky enough to chat with the Sara Lucas of up-and-coming Brooklyn band Callers before a show with the Dirty Projectors at the Paradise Rock Club. Callers are a great example of indie music crossing into other genres to create new genres altogether, and they brought down the house prior to [...]

Digging Through the Crates #7

His music, which recalls an eighties pop sensibility that should be familiar to WERS listeners and modern day indie kids alike, is deeply rooted in a set of profound thoughts and emotions. Maus is currently studying philosophy. The interview referenced in the letter below [...]

Revo Radar: The Showtek Brothers

You know the saying “two heads are better than one”? Well, they’re right! The Showtek brothers, Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen, have definitely put their heads together to make it far in the electro scene. Oh, and did I also mention they’re part of the “Top 100 DJs!”? The Showtek brothers have recently done some amazing collaboration work [...]

Revo Radar: Audrey Napoleon

With a short list of existing female DJs, you’ve gotta have some serious talent to stand out in a predominate male industry. Allow me to introduce Audrey Napoleon, a hard- hitting LA native who is quickly making her mark in the electronic world. Her eccentric electro house and female vocal-infused dance music not only energizes [...]

Amanda Palmer at The Middle East

Amanda Palmer at The Middle East

If there’s two things Boston-bred artist Amanda Palmer has, it’s theatrics and gratitude. Both of these were at their finest last night at the Middle East Downstairs, where she played a show to fans who pledged $300 and above to her now-famous Kickstarter project, Theater Is Evil with the Grand Theft Orchestra. Palmer’s played all [...]

Identity Festival at the Comcast Center

There is just a vibe truly indescribable, a whole different heart pulse surging through your every core with energy to keep you going with no explanation. Identity Festival did just that and the [...]
