Real Estate Live In Studio

Real Estate Live In Studio

I was supposed to interview the band Real Estate when they came in for the live mix at our WERS studio, but due to time conflicts the band couldn’t stay. For a couple reasons, I felt a little freaked out inside when I realized this; Real Estate is one of my favorite bands, and I [...]

Jon Herington Live In Studio

Jon Herington Live In Studio

Joining us for a live in studio performance was Jon Herington. Though primarily known as a sideman on albums and tours for artists including Steely Dan, Madeleine Peyroux, and currently The Dukes of September Rhythm Revue, Herington has also made a name for himself as a solo musician. Performing without the other two members that [...]

Brandi Carlile and Josh Ritter Live

Brandi Carlile and Josh Ritter Live

Brandi Carlile’s fifth and latest album, which came out in June and is titled Bear Creek, is different than her previous four in a couple different ways. She and her band recorded it in a studio close to their home and produced it themselves. Trina Schumaker worked as an engineer on the album, as well, [...]

The XX Live at The Wilbur

The XX Live at The Wilbur

The Boston summer heat as we have come to know it vanished on Tuesday night as fans lined up outside of the Wilbur Theater in the heart of downtown’s Theater District. Though temperatures were low and rain began to fall, everyone held on to get the best spots in the house for the XX. Murmurs [...]

Sara Watkins Live In Studio

Sara Watkins Live In Studio

Grammy award winning singer, songwriter, and fiddler Sara Watkins stopped by the WERS studios for an exclusive live mix on her “day off” from a rigorous national tour and fresh off of her main stage appearance at the Newport Folk Festival this past weekend. Watkins first came on to the American music scene in 1989 [...]

Coldplay at TD Garden

Coldplay at TD Garden

I’ve never really thought of Coldplay as a rock band. When I think of Coldplay, I think of their power ballads– of “Yellow” and of “The Scientist” and other songs like that. But last night at Coldplay’s first Boston show on their Mylo Xylotour, Chris Martin and the rest of the band members made it [...]

Newport Folk Festival: Jackson Browne

Newport Folk Festival: Jackson Browne

It’s always sad to see the weekend-long events of Newport Folk Fest wrap up on Sunday evening, and there was one more performance to go before the festival officially concluded. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jackson Browne was scheduled as the headliner for Sunday, and it was a fitting way to end the [...]

Newport Folk Festival: The Tallest Man on Earth

Newport Folk Festival: The Tallest Man on Earth

It seems Newport has a sweet spot for the Swedish. Folk duo First Aid Kit delicately sang on Saturday and folk singer The Tallest Man on Earth performed this Sunday to close out Newport Folk Festival’s Harbor stage for the weekend.  The Tallest Man on Earth, whose real name is Kristian Matsson, is actually not that tall. [...]

Newport Folk Festival: Punch Brothers

Newport Folk Festival: Punch Brothers

Progressive bluegrass band, Punch Brothers, were introduced as the final set of the night and festival for the Quad stage inside of Fort Adams as “a band that has great songwriting skills or just a band that can really play their instruments.” Vocalist and mandolin player Chris Thile was accompanied by his band: Gabe Witcher [...]

Newport Folk Festival: Conor Oberst

Newport Folk Festival: Conor Oberst

My expectation for Conor Oberst’s set on Sunday was that the entire audience would be bawling their eyes out to every song as they sung along. But as I glanced around the crowd at the Fort stage, I was surprised to see that everybody appeared dry-eyed and content– no emotional breakdowns here. Known as being [...]
