Pond Live at The Sinclair

Pond Live at The Sinclair

Pond has a reputation of being the wild younger brother of Australian psych rock band Tame Impala. Seeing that this is how many people learned of them, it’s difficult for Pond, consisting of many members of Tame Impala, to break free from the overshadowing association. After seeing Pond at The Sinclair in Cambridge, it is ever so clear […]

Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

  Miniature Tigers brought an indie-pop party to Brighton Music Hall, joined by energetic openers Yellerkin, Finish Ticket, and The Griswolds. The show began early to accommodate the packed lineup, but most concertgoers came out on time. The young audience packed into the front area of the stage, nobody wanting to miss the opportunity to […]

Grizfolk Live at Great Scott

Grizfolk Live at Great Scott

The Box Tiger may have been a somewhat unexpected and rather genre-contending addition to WERS’ 65th birthday show with Grizfolk, but we could not have been happier to have them celebrate with us. Frontwoman Sonia Sturino had the crowd on its toes, one moment overly apologetic and the next delectably in-your-face. Either way, if the […]

Air Traffic Controller Live at The Sinclair

Air Traffic Controller Live at The Sinclair

Four Boston-based bands gathered at The Sinclair in a grand celebration of WERS’ 65th, bringing with them their own style of music, dance, and birthday cheer! Bent Shapes opened the evening with garage-charm and good humor aimed at a small but growing crowd.

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

On a stage swathed in pink fabric and watched over by a swarm of blue-irised evil eyes, Tune Yards (ahem, tUnE-yArDs) with opener, Sylvan Esso, wowed Royale’s eager crowd. After watching both bands, it was clear that the headliner could easily hold the party on their own, but the more company, the better. The party was […]

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten and opening act Torres set out to dispel any misconceptions that singer-songwriter acts are tame, captivating a sold-out crowd at The Sinclair with two high-intensity sets. The artists may have preached to the choir though, as there was a palpable, excited buzz going through the young and smart-looking crowd before either act […]

Boston Calling Spring 2014

Boston Calling Spring 2014

Day One The cloudy sky, the temperatures barely hitting sixty degrees, and the cool breeze did not seem to phase the crowd of eager festival goers as they poured into City Hall Plaza for the first day of Boston Calling. Sporting everything from patchy overalls and purple hair to simple sweatshirts and baseball caps, people lined […]
