Side Show Live In Studio

Side Show Live In Studio

In the 1930s, conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton were incredibly popular stars of the circus sideshow and vaudeville circuit. Purchased by their mother’s boss because of their “potential,” and subsequently trained in singing and dancing, they became famous “because they were freaks.” This is according to Brian Boruta, director of Emerson Umbrella’s production of […]

The Life Is Good Festival returned once again this fall and WERS was happy to support the two day, family-friendly festival on Prowse Farm in Canton, MA.

Disclosure Live at Cyclorama

Disclosure Live at Cyclorama

Wednesday nights in Boston don’t have a reputation for being particularly enthralling. Last night’s, however, was an exception. Down in the South End of Tremont Street, a long line like a black snake was curling out in front of Cyclorama. Cameramen paced about, photographing the queue of people who knew what was behind the doors. […]

Wavves Live at The Paradise

Wavves Live at The Paradise

The first time I ever saw Best Coast, they shared a bill with lo-fi surf rockers Wavves in a rather chilly fall. They took the stage before Bethany and her crew, totting beach balls, palm trees, and so much paraphernalia my brain was too in shock to even remember what it all was. Everyone around […]

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

When you think of kid’s music, what do you see? Freddy Spaghetti, Raffi? A jaded hipster in a colorful costume alluding to some bizarre form of Brazilian Anime? Or some shyster trying to mesmerize infants into action like Mogatu hypnotizing Derek Zoolander? Rolie Polie Guacamole skips stones over those clichés and splash onto the scene […]

Soft Focus Live In Studio

“I want my burrito, Dad!” Sam Glassberg shouts as he recounts a story about a family he saw on the T with fellow bandmates Joe Holcomb and Garren Orr. The good-humored chatter and playfulness continues during their warm up, but soon the band Soft Focus slowly lets the sound of steady drums and slow-picking guitar […]

Brendan Kelley on Coffeehouse

Brendan Kelley on Coffeehouse

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. Although Kelley is only 21, his music is mature beyond his years, boasting a sort of wisdom that you don’t often find in young musicians. Perhaps that has to […]
