Steve Martin and Edie Brickell at NonComm

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell at NonComm

At the surface, a pairing like Steve Martin and Edie Brickell might seem unrealistic at best. A 67-year-old comedian teaming up with Paul Simon’s wife? Yet long-time fans of Martin know that he is just as adept with the banjo as he is with comedy. That’s part of the reason his Non-Comm performance with Brickell, […]

Kurt Vile At NonComm

Kurt Vile At NonComm

Kurt Vile’s set is scheduled to go on at 9:25 PM. You’d never know, since he’d been mingling through the crowd since forty-five minutes beforehand. He also jumped on stage twenty minutes before the set set for sound check, and remained there until he began playing. It’s a little flustering when the host introduces him […]

President Obama Speaks Out Against IRS

By Amanda Beland President Obama denounced the recent Internal Revenue Services’ (IRS) targeting of Tea Party and Conservative non-profit groups. This is the first time the President has spoken publicly about the allegations of the IRS focusing intensely on the actions of conservative groups nationwide.

Billy Bragg Live at Berklee

Billy Bragg Live at Berklee

Billy Bragg took to the stage at the beautiful and acoustically fantastic Berklee Performance Center at around 8pm Sunday night. Flanked by a full band for about 2/3rds of his set, Bragg played a career spanning set that lasted a good two hours.

Rose Cousins Live In Studio

Rose Cousins Live In Studio

Halifax Canada’s Rose Cousins brought nothing more than herself and a couple instruments for her in-studio performance at WERS for live music week. As of lately, however, she has been proudly calling Boston her “second home,” and we caught her in rare form, not surrounded by a group of tight knit Boston musicians. She seemed […]

Achoired Taste Live In Studio

Achoired Taste Live In Studio

All A Cappella has the unique privilege of being the hub for a myriad of different a cappella groups from all corners of the country, and certainly all over the Greater Boston Area. Today, however, I had the rare privilege of hosting a group right here at Emerson College. Achoired Taste is the newest of […]

Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of welcoming the Wakefield Repertory Theatre and their upcoming production of Lucky Stiff, a musical farce concerning dead bodies, a plethora of accents, mistaken identities, and a six million dollar inheritance at stake. Prior to this interview, I had heard very little of this show, so I was excited to […]
