Albert Hammond Jr. Live at the Brighton

Albert Hammond Jr. Live at the Brighton

There is a certain bond shared amongst fans of The Strokes. Critics may deride their efforts, languishing in the popular opinion that they haven’t done anything quite as good as their career-defining Is This It, and the band themselves may sometimes come off as ambiguous and cryptic, but their fans are nothing but loyal. Coming […]

Polica Live at Paradise Rock Club

Polica Live at Paradise Rock Club

Life as a buzz band must be both thrilling and exhausting. Quickly thrust into the spotlight, a band must learn how to swim or be ravenously eaten up by critics and disappointed fans alike. Crazy how much excitement one or two songs that can create, ramping up expectations for bands who shouldn’t have to worry […]

The Head and the Heart Live at Royale

“We’re The Head and the Heart and we’re from Seattle, Washington,” said Josiah Johnson to the audience of the Royale Friday night. A simple introduction for a group whose popularity has been rapidly increasing since the release of their sophomore album, Let’s Be Still.

King Khan & the Shrines Live at Brighton

King Khan & the Shrines Live at Brighton

The best way to describe a King Khan & the Shrines show is “never not weird,” and that’s the consensus after being to three shows inside of 2013 alone. They returned to Brighton Music Hall on Tuesday night in support of their new album, and brought the weird with a touch of classy this time– […]

Cold War Kids Live at HOB

Friday night at the House of Blues, Cold War Kids, supported by PAPA, shook the floor with their music, all under the gaze of a reclining skeleton that graced the cover of their Loyalty to Loyalty.

Rose Windows Live at T.T. the Bear’s

This past year, Rose Windows saw thick anticipation for their debut album, The Sun Dogs, and delivered with a solid piece of storytelling. The fluid imagery of often nature-type paintings of a situation blend with heavy mystical instrumentals for layers that surround the scene being portrayed. As vocalist Rabia Shaheen Qazi builds belting cries and […]

Nine Inch Nails Live at TD Garden

Nine Inch Nails Live at TD Garden

It was only a mere four years ago that Trent Reznor kicked up his boots, put some amps and guitar pedals on eBay and declared that Nine Inch Nails were no longer a touring band. The “final” tour, the then aptly titled “Wave Goodbye Tour,” saw the band perform at some of the biggest amphitheaters […]

The 1975 Live at The Sinclair

The 1975 Live at The Sinclair

On October 8th, I had the amazing opportunity to not only watch The 1975 play at The Sinclair in Cambridge, but also to speak with lead vocalist and guitarist Matthew Healy pre-show. In a room backstage, I was introduced to the extremely genuine gentleman, and jumped in as quickly as possible. To start my interview […]

Phoenix Live at House of Blues

Phoenix Live at House of Blues

Excitement and confusion were the main emotions felt among many of the people lining up in front of the House of Blues. Confusion over the venue change and what that meant for their ticket locations and excitement over the fact that Phoenix, a band who at one point were regularly playing in front of tens […]
