Jim James Live at Royale

Jim James Live at Royale

Jim James is a somewhat odd fellow. Band leader of the almighty indie rock, jam band hybrid My Morning Jacket, James has traversed through many spiritual and musical journeys during his fifteen years with the band. And now, with the release of Regions of Light and Sound of God, James has decided to strike out […]

Matt Costa Live at Brighton

Matt Costa Live at Brighton

Surf-rock swinging The Blank Tapes opened the show for Matt Costa at the Brighton Music Hall. “Would it be alright if we had a beach party?” percussionist Pearl Charles asked the audience before the band’s lead guitarist and singer Matt Adams and bassist DA Humphrey embarked on their set. With vintage charm and a wonderfully overwhelming danceability, the certainly […]

Excision Live at House of Blues

Excision Live at House of Blues

Dubstep superstar Excision stopped by Boston’s House of Blues on Friday night as his latest stop on his “Execution Tour.” Don’t be worried by this menacing label; it merely refers to a 28 foot wide, 15 foot tall video mapped masterpiece that displays a proud 420 square feet of 3D video screen mapping and of […]

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

When I met with Virginia native and San Francisco resident Thao Nguyen at The Sinclair I experienced the more soft-spoken and humorous side of the musician. Upon first meeting her she joked about her band The Get Down Stay Down’s decision to watch the “very challenging” Rush Hour in their dressing room. We spoke about […]

Just a little bit of quirky, a dash of wit, and a lot of energy are what came together to make Jukebox the Ghost’s show at Brighton Music Hall to make a memorable one. Opening for Jukebox the Ghost first was The Spring Standards, a New York based band consisting of members James Clear, Heather […]

Mumford & Sons Live at TD Garden

Mumford & Sons Live at TD Garden

When Grammy Award nominee Mumford & Sons played Boston’s TD Garden last night, it was the first time I had ever been to an arena show that large. I have made a habit to avoid these types of shows at all costs, even if it meant missing an act that I really loved. Based entirely […]

fun. Live at Orpheum Theater

When New York power pop rockers fun. arrived in Boston last night, over two thousand fans flocked to the Orpheum Theater nestled in downtown’s theater district. The crowd, that ranged from 20-somethings to parents accompanying their fun.-loving teens, piled into their seats at the sold out show. The house lights dimmed and the audience roared […]

Ra Ra Riot Live at Paradise

Ra Ra Riot Live at Paradise

In the midst of the longest spell of below freezing temperatures Boston has seen since 2005, the city got a much needed dose of upbeat indie rock from Ra Ra Riot last night. The New York City natives stopped by the Paradise Rock Club fresh off of the release of their new album Beta Love. […]

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival

After four days of music, art, and comedy, tens of thousands of Bonnarovians were finally sent home with ears ringing, dust and dirt clinging to their bodies, and the smell of corndogs sitting gently in their noses. Huge plastic bags of trash and recycling, empty beer cans, and random articles of clothing were left scattering […]
