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. He said the actions of the IRS should be “nothing but […]

At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On The Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming. This week’s artist On The Verge is the Australian multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, Xavier Rudd.

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 […]

Eli Whitney Houston Live In Studio

Eli Whitney Houston Live In Studio

The easy to Google Eli Whitney Houston and the Cotton Gin and Tonics came to the WERS studio in high spirits. The five of them all seemed to be great friends, joking and laughing, they created a very fun atmosphere right from the start. The local Boston act came with an interesting array of instruments; […]

Winter Live In Studio

Winter Live In Studio

One of our favorite things to do at WERS is to cover local talent, especially talent that is from Emerson! Winter, a self-described dreamy shoegazing band, is fronted by Emerson’s very own, Samira Winter. The band initially began as a collaboration between Samira and Nolan Eley, Winter’s lead guitar player and also a member of […]

Paul Adelstein Live In Studio

Paul Adelstein Live In Studio

Far from sunny Los Angeles where he usually resides, Paul Adelstein, of the band Doris, found himself in WERS’s studio for 2013’s Live Music Week. The spectacled, scruffy Adelstein alternated between the piano and acoustic guitar as he warmed up, focused and calm, casually belting out bits and pieces of his catalogue of songs. Completely […]
