Identity Festival at the Comcast Center

Identity Festival at the Comcast Center

I’ve said this to every person who’s asked me about any EDM event and I will pass that message along to you. There is just a vibe truly indescribable, a whole different heart pulse surging through your every core with energy to keep you going with no explanation. Identity Festival did just that and the [...]

The Boss is Coming to Boston & Expands Summer Tour

The Boss is Coming to Boston & Expands Summer Tour

The classics are making a comeback in Beantown in 2012. Neil Young and Crazy Horse are going to be playing the TD Bank North Garden November 26th, but there is even more anticipation for a touring true blooded American. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are going to be playing to back-to-back shows at [...]

Artist Of The Week: The Head and the Heart

Every week, WERS highlights an artist we love in our Artist of the Week series. This week we have picked Seattle-based The Head and the Heart!

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 [...]

Newport Folk Festival: tUnE-yArDs

Newport Folk Festival: tUnE-yArDs

Judging a book by its cover is generally frowned upon; it steals the book’s chance of telling you what the story is about before you even pick it up and read the summary. The downside is that we’re human and almost always make this mistake. The upside is that it isn’t necessarily always bad. Just look at [...]

Newport Folk Festival: Of Monsters and Men

Newport Folk Festival: Of Monsters and Men

Icelandic indie folk band Of Monsters and Men packed the house of the Quad stage late Sunday afternoon in Newport. WERS music director, Kendall Stewart, welcomed the band and the group shuffled about in excitement and coyness to their respective positions on the stage. With not a moment to waste the Icelanders dove head first [...]

Newport Folk Festival: The Head and the Heart

Newport Folk Festival: The Head and the Heart

The cool afternoon breezes made Seattle folk rockers The Head and the Heart feel right at home on the Fort main stage on Sunday. Lead vocalist Josiah Johnson took the stage with guitarist Jonathan Russell, violinist Charity Rose Thielen, bassist Chris Zasche, and drummer Tyler Williams. This was the band’s second year performing at Newport, [...]
