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. Formerly known as Girlfriends, the trio – guitarist Ben Potrykus, bassist Supriya Gunda, […]

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 […]

S. Carey Live at Great Scott

S. Carey Live at Great Scott

A night at Great Scott in Allston can either be extremely fruitful or somewhat of a letdown. The myriad of artists that the venue brings in come from all different backgrounds and types of experience. However, Thursday April 17 seemed to be promising, as the night would bring S. Carey of Bon Iver fame to […]

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs Live at the Paradise

The War on Drugs… Fun stuff, eh? Whether or not you agree with Nixon’s controversial program that would jail hundreds of thousands of American citizens, I think we can all agree on one thing: it’s a pretty damn cool band name. And, in the same way that Nixon’s plan was dramatically expanded in the 80s […]

All A Cappella Live

All A Cappella Live

This year’s All A Cappella Live was not only a competitive gathering of a cappella groups from the greater Boston area, but also a celebration of WERS 88.9’s sixty-fifth birthday. Before any a cappella groups had yet graced the stage, the audience of Emerson College’s Cutler Majestic Theater serenaded the station with Happy Birthday wishes. […]

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

For a few blissed-out, sun-kissed years in Britain, dance music and rock found a way to coexist with one another in a way that combined the hippie, love-one-another mantras of the 60s with beat-driven, 303-squelchin’ Acid House straight from Chicago. The unlikely merger surely was a byproduct of a quickly evolving musical landscape, characterized by […]
