Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players

Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players

The second night of SXSW had perhaps the biggest thrill of my live music-attending career. This years keynote speaker, Dave Grohl, took to the stage at Stubb’s with his new project Sound City. This group of Grohl’s “heroes” was brought together when the Foo Fighter was making his documentary about the Sound City recording studio […]

Cold War Kids at Clive Bar

Cold War Kids at Clive Bar

As of last night, I have seen Cold War Kids live four times in three different states. From the first night I saw them I was completely taken aback by their vigorous live energy. It’s infectious nature permeates the crowd whether you’re at a sold out House of Blues in Boston or closing out a […]

Natalie Maines and Dawes at the Moody Theater

Natalie Maines and Dawes at the Moody Theater

I’ll probably get killed for this, but one of the coolest things I saw on our first night at SXSW happened during the Natalie Maines set. As you might know, Maines is the former frontwoman on The Dixie Chicks but has branched off on her own since then. The band really sounded nothing like her […]

Butch Walker at SXSW

Butch Walker at SXSW

I came down to Austin without a set schedule. I figured I would just go wherever, hang out with different people and be exposed to different music as a result. There was just one thing that I absolutely had to do: meet Butch Walker. Butch Walker is a singer-songwriter, the front man of Butch Walker […]

Clive Davis at Club 119

Clive Davis at Club 119

After a failed attempt to get into the highly desired Kendrick Lamar show at the Spotify House, I decided to head over to a different showcase downtown at Club 119. The Source as sponsoring this showcase and it featured two of my favorite artists right now, Ab-soul and Schoolboy Q. As I get in the […]

Lord Huron Live at the Moody Theater

Lord Huron Live at the Moody Theater

After hearing about Los Angeles folk rockers Lord Huron on various podcasts, they quickly secured a place in my heart. Between the anthemic woah-oh-oh’s and playful drum beats, I knew this would be a set not to miss at SxSW. As my first stop of the night, I didn’t know what to expect. Would the […]

Tame Impala Live at HOB

Tame Impala Live at HOB

Tame Impala is still feeling out its listener base in the U.S., but if a packed venue full of Bostonians positively drooling for the on-the-rise Australian act is any indication, they’re getting damn close. After openers and fellow Aussies The Growl opened the house with their garage sound, Kevin Parker’s ever-growing pet project took the […]

Weezer Sets Sail For Second Cruise

Weezer Sets Sail For Second Cruise

Super-fans of the Los Angeles native band, Weezer will be happy to know that the band is setting sail back into the water for their second annual Weezer Cruise. Wait, how can you combine paradise with one of the greatest alternative bands of all time? Well, it’s been two years since Weezer set sail aboard a Carnival cruise […]

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa may be the best bar band in the world. To the tune of “Comrade Z”, heard live at the House of Blues, March 9, 2013, I found myself remembering a small, dark hotel cafe in northern Paris, where I once drank five-euro rum & cokes while a circle of locals strum and drum their […]

Alt-J Live at the Paradise

Alt-J Live at the Paradise

On Sunday, March 2, the Paradise Rock Club held a sold out crowd that was murmuring with excitement even before the doors opened. English indie rock band Alt-J opened their US tour to this crowd, the first night of an almost nonstop tour that runs until October, which includes stops at music festivals like Coachella, […]
