tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

On a stage swathed in pink fabric and watched over by a swarm of blue-irised evil eyes, Tune Yards (ahem, tUnE-yArDs) with opener, Sylvan Esso, wowed Royale’s eager crowd. After watching both bands, it was clear that the headliner could easily hold the party on their own, but the more company, the better. The party was […]

All A Cappella Live

All A Cappella Live

This year’s All A Cappella Live was not only a competitive gathering of a cappella groups from the greater Boston area, but also a celebration of WERS 88.9’s sixty-fifth birthday. Before any a cappella groups had yet graced the stage, the audience of Emerson College’s Cutler Majestic Theater serenaded the station with Happy Birthday wishes. […]

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

Jagwar Ma Live at The Sinclair

For a few blissed-out, sun-kissed years in Britain, dance music and rock found a way to coexist with one another in a way that combined the hippie, love-one-another mantras of the 60s with beat-driven, 303-squelchin’ Acid House straight from Chicago. The unlikely merger surely was a byproduct of a quickly evolving musical landscape, characterized by […]

Broken Bells Live at House of Blues

Broken Bells Live at House of Blues

I am hesitant to call Broken Bells a “supergroup”. Through credentials alone, the duo of James Mercer and Brian Burton almost definitely warrant the title. However, to me, the term “supergroup” conjures images of bloated rockstars, ego tripping and terrible names (Super Heavy vs. Chickenfoot in the battle of worst band names of all time). […]

St. Vincent Live at House of Blues

St. Vincent Live at House of Blues

If Emerson College were a musician, it would be St. Vincent. She incorporates interpretive dance into her song performances and title of her first album is from an episode of Arrested Development. The enigmatic indie rock artist delivered a charmingly hipster and wildly energetic performance at the House of Blues this Thursday. I arrived at […]

Lake Street Dive Live at The Sinclair

Lake Street Dive Live at The Sinclair

Leaning slightly into the microphone with hands planted firmly on her hips, Lake Street Dive frontwoman Rachael Price sings directly to every single person in the Sinclair. To the girls squeezed up center stage, to the man posted up on the wall next to the bar, to me crooning down from the corner balcony, Price […]

You Blew It! Live In Studio

You Blew It! Live In Studio

  Emo is a dirty word. It’s too general of a music genre that, admitting to listening to, could make you an outcast in an instant. A few really bad mislabeled bands from the mid 2000s make me scared to admit to listening to The Promise Ring or American Football, or even Cap’n Jazz. However, […]

Sarah Borges Live In Studio

Sarah Borges Live In Studio

During her busy week that includes a CD release party, performance with Girls, Guns and Glory, and being a mother, Massachusetts native and Emerson alum Sarah Borges had just enough time to stop by WERS studio. She played three songs off of her upcoming album, Radio Sweetheart, which is released Friday, and answered a few […]

Pinkalicious Live on the Playground

Pinkalicious Live on the Playground

Laughter, nervous smiles and singing rehearsal filled the WERS Performance Studio earlier Saturday morning before the Pinkalicious the Musical cast’s appearance on Playground. Lucy Perrotta, Margaret McFadden and Alec Shiman visited the studio to perform three of their songs from the hit show whose success took everyone by surprise; though Pinkalicious the Musical began with […]

Temples Live at Great Scott

Temples Live at Great Scott

For music fans, the city of Liverpool instantly conjures images of THAT band. You know them… They had the hair and the mustaches and made those albums that defined modern western music and wrote about a yellow submarine and Strawberry Fields… Anyway, THAT band played a pretty key-role in the psychedelia scene in the sixties […]
