Steve Martin and Edie Brickell at NonComm

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell at NonComm

At the surface, a pairing like Steve Martin and Edie Brickell might seem unrealistic at best. A 67-year-old comedian teaming up with Paul Simon’s wife?

Kurt Vile At NonComm

Kurt Vile’s set is scheduled to go on at 9:25 PM. You’d never know, since he’d been mingling through the crowd since forty-five minutes beforehand.

Foxygen Live at Brighton

A few minutes before the show starts, a stagehand approaches the record player that rests on top of an organ.
