A Look At Musician Perfume Genius

A Look At Musician Perfume Genius

There is nothing quite as beautiful or as elegant or as poignant as the arrangements of Mike Hadreas’, otherwise known as Perfume Genius, music. Listening to his songs triggers a wave of sorrow deep within your soul. It feels like being submerged under the coldest, iced water. Yet, everything is at ease. Each wave of […]

Why? at The Middle East

Why? at The Middle East

  It’s been just under a year since indie hip-hop band Why? came to Boston. The last time the group was here, fans were treated to an intimate show with an “unplugged” vibe – a special treat, for sure. Their stop at The Middle East last night, however, gave fans a chance to throw their […]

The Left End: Interview With Callers

The Left End: Interview With Callers

Recently, The Left End was lucky enough to chat with the Sara Lucas of up-and-coming Brooklyn band Callers before a show with the Dirty Projectors at the Paradise Rock Club. Callers are a great example of indie music crossing into other genres to create new genres altogether, and they brought down the house prior to […]

Digging Through the Crates #7

Digging Through the Crates #7

John Maus is an experimental pop musician currently residing in Minnesota. His music, which recalls an eighties pop sensibility that should be familiar to WERS listeners and modern day indie kids alike, is deeply rooted in a set of profound thoughts and emotions. Maus is currently studying philosophy. The interview referenced in the letter below […]

Osheaga Music Festival

Osheaga Music Festival

A lot of us have songs that we consider “ours.” They’re songs we listen to over and over again, through our headphones on the bus or turned up loud in our room. Songs carry very specific emotional attachments. Sometimes it’s like we convince ourselves that we’re the only person in the entire world who could […]

Amanda Palmer at The Middle East

Amanda Palmer at The Middle East

If there’s two things Boston-bred artist Amanda Palmer has, it’s theatrics and gratitude. Both of these were at their finest last night at the Middle East Downstairs, where she played a show to fans who pledged $300 and above to her now-famous Kickstarter project, Theater Is Evil with the Grand Theft Orchestra. Palmer’s played all […]

Digging Through the Crates #6

Digging Through the Crates #6

Recently I had the pleasure and honor of interviewing William Bonney, a screamo band from the Midwest. Before forming William Bonney though, several of their members were in a band called Merchant Ships, my favorite band as well as one of the bigger screamo bands to come out of the Midwest area. Now they aren’t […]

King Khan & the Shrines at Brighton

King Khan & the Shrines at Brighton

Having expectations when going to a King Khan show is downright unreasonable. They’ll exceed, confuse, and scream away what you were thinking about when you came in. All you need to know is when you get a trumpet, a baritone sax, bongos, a drumkit, two guitars, a keyboard, a bass, and a King onstage, you’re […]

Motion City Soundtrack on The Left End

Motion City Soundtrack on The Left End

Our studio was fortunate enough to welcome in Justin Pierre (vocals) and Joshua Cain (guitar/vocals) of Motion City Soundtrack. Their newest album, Go, has sent them for quite the ride. Leaving the major label, Columbia Records, the band thought that they would ultimately be funding the record themselves, but when labels got a word that […]

Blast From The Past: Bikini Kill

Blast From The Past: Bikini Kill

What do you get when you combine the 90s, feminism and riot grrls? BIKINI KILL, OF COURSE. This week’s blast from the past is all about girl power. A few months back I went to see a documentary called From The Back of The Room, which focuses on female, fronted punk and hardcore bands and […]
