As far as Scottish bands go, Camera Obscura has had quite an impressive run. Since its inception in 1996, the band earned the blessings of late British DJ John Peel, survived multiple line-up changes, and released five critically well-received albums. Camera Obscura’s latest, Desire Lines, just came out in June and the band is currently […]

Seventy degree breezes were cranked up to high nineties. The result was extracted happiness thanks to […]
Leedz Edutainment has done it once again and brought another major hip hop act to Boston. The XXL Freshman Live 2013 Tour featuring Big K.R.I.T and Action Bronson came through the Bean. The talented Big K.R.I.T, who is known for receiving love from the Underground, got exactly that at The Middle East. The venue was […]
Brendan Kelley, a Massachusetts-native, brought his soulful, bluesy music into the WERS studio for a performance for the Coffeehouse, and WERS was thrilled to have him.
