On the Verge: The So So Glos

On the Verge: The So So Glos

Brooklyn punk rock band of brothers, The So So Glos, brought a lot to their WERS studio performance. Their instruments, their friendliness, their attitude, their tattered leather jackets and doc martens, their distinct punk rock odor, but most importantly, their songs.

Emerson College alum Gabriel Mintz revisited his campus of old in support of his latest record, Future Wars.

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff is many things: a poet, an artist, a traveler, a feminist, and a musician.

On the Verge: Heathers

When I first heard Heathers – the twin duo of Ellie and Louise Macnamara – sing, I had flashbacks to high school, to the girls who sang the National Anthem games and sang in the hallway to the four chord strumming of the guy who stole your first girlfriend. The teen angst that has never […]

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

“Spielberg doesn’t know how to use any ambiguity,” Blitzen Trapper guitarist Brian Koch said on the topic of Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report. “Its like a Scooby Doo ending where they take the bad guy’s mask off and he’s like, ‘ I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids!’” Luckily […]

On the Verge: The Well Informed

The band members of The Well Informed dress as smartly as their name implies. When they showed up at the WERS studio for their On the Verge segment this afternoon, the three musicians wore coordinating vests, ties, and brightly colored pants. The look is all part of their overarching artistic identity: as their Facebook page […]

The soulful powerhouse St. Paul & The Broken Bones was kind enough to stop by the WERS studio this afternoon to play a couple tunes off their new record, Half The City.  Surrounded by gospel and 70’s soul, lead singer Paul Janeway began the band out of his hometown of Chelsea, Alabama. Exposed to the Pentecostal […]

On the Verge: KaoVanny

In a delightfully soulful end to this semester’s Live Music Week, WERS had the pleasure of hosting the vocalist, poet, and infinitely charming KaoVanny in studio. The artist plans to release Lov3child, her first full album, in June 2014. The record will be a musical expression of three distinct aspects of her life that have […]
