David Wax Museum at NonComm

David Wax Museum at NonComm

WERS is bringing you exclusive content from NonCommvention in Philadelphia all week long as we discover the hottest up-and-coming performers and celebrate established artists we love. David Wax Museum, by now a Boston-based favorite, took World Cafe in Philadelphia by its horns last night as one of the main acts at NonCommvention, the annual celebration […]

Tom Jones at NonComm

Tom Jones at NonComm

Of all of this year’s Non Comm performers, Tom Jones was likely the most iconic figure among them. As a TV variety show and Las Vegas favorite, Jones was a baritone-voiced crooner who, from the 1960s onward, sold over 100 million records as he belted out dozens of Top 40 hits. He had a full […]

Wild Belle at NonComm

Wild Belle at NonComm

After a brief introduction, Wild Belle walks on stage to the applause of the 2013 NonCommvention-goers. The band is based around siblings Natalie and Elliot Bergman. Natalie takes point at center stage, microphone at the ready, while Elliot posts up to the right in front of a keyboard and drum machine. Their band follows along […]

Phoenix Live at NomComm

Phoenix Live at NomComm

WERS is bringing you exclusive content from NonCommvention in Philadelphia all week long as we discover the hottest up-and-coming performers and celebrate established artists we love. The first evening of programming was eclectic and exciting, ranging from bluegrass to punk and culminating in one of the larger acts of the evening, French-born group Phoenix promoting […]

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell at NonComm

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell at NonComm

At the surface, a pairing like Steve Martin and Edie Brickell might seem unrealistic at best. A 67-year-old comedian teaming up with Paul Simon’s wife? Yet long-time fans of Martin know that he is just as adept with the banjo as he is with comedy. That’s part of the reason his Non-Comm performance with Brickell, […]

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 […]

Foxygen Live at Brighton

Foxygen Live at Brighton

A few minutes before the show starts, a stagehand approaches the record player that rests on top of an organ. He flips through a few records, one being Foxygen’s own, before finding what he’s searching for. He slides the record out of the green and grey sleeve, lays it down, and drops the needle before […]

Little Boots Live at Sinclair

Little Boots Live at Sinclair

Little Boots first hit the scene in 2009 with the release of her debut album, Hands, a strong night-on-the-town album that earned her favorable comparisons to contemporary Synth-Pop singers like Ellie Goulding and La Roux’s Elly. Now, four years later, Little Boots is continuing to bring the beats while taking on a more aural and […]

Billy Bragg Live at Berklee

Billy Bragg Live at Berklee

Billy Bragg took to the stage at the beautiful and acoustically fantastic Berklee Performance Center at around 8pm Sunday night. Flanked by a full band for about 2/3rds of his set, Bragg played a career spanning set that lasted a good two hours. Bragg’s politically charged reputation proved true as he held court on everything […]

Dillon Francis at House of Blues

Dillon Francis at House of Blues

Moomnahton DJ-extraordinaire Dillon Francis has seen his fame skyrocket in the past year, and his show at the house of Blues last Wednesday was a perfect example of why. With a packed set list, lots of heavy DJing, and a stage setup guaranteed to get even the most skeptical raver dancing, Francis’s “Wurld Turr” (yes, […]
