Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

  Miniature Tigers brought an indie-pop party to Brighton Music Hall, joined by energetic openers Yellerkin, Finish Ticket, and The Griswolds. The show began early to accommodate the packed lineup, but most concertgoers came out on time. The young audience packed into the front area of the stage, nobody wanting to miss the opportunity to […]

Singin’ in the Rain Live In Studio

Singin’ in the Rain Live In Studio

  Theater is truly at its best when the performers are in love with the show they’re performing. That will happen in time with most performances, but when Reagle Music Theatre’s cast of Singin’ in the Rain stopped by the WERS studio, they were two performances into their run, a little over two weeks into […]

“Black Hours” by Hamilton Leithauser

“Black Hours” by Hamilton Leithauser

Black Hours is an album I have been looking forward to getting my hands on for some time. Initially set to be released in early May, Hamilton Leithauser’s debut as a solo artist dropped about a month later on June third for reasons unknown. The delay really didn’t matter much, since Black Hours singles “Alexandra” and “11 O’Clock […]

“Ghost Stories” by Coldplay

“Ghost Stories” by Coldplay

Though they hardly need an introduction, Coldplay has been a tour-de-force since their formation the mid-nineties at University College London.  Their last two albums, Viva La Vida in 2008 and Mylo Xyloto in 2011, saw the band moving away from the dream-rock sound that catapulted them to fame, and experimenting with more complex instrumentation and […]

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

At the young age of eighteen, Elizabeth Woolridge Grant signed her first record deal with 5 Points Records. Although she had previously recorded and released music as May Jailer and Lizzie Grant, from then on, she took the name Lana Del Rey and quickly catapulted into international stardom. Her release of Lana Del Rey in 2010 and particularly Born […]

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

After logging in six studio albums, ten or more years of extensive touring experience, and releasing a well-received indie-documentary, the resume of The Black Lips, arguably the most hardworking and unstoppable garage punk band around, seems it could not get any longer. Yet the band shows no signs of slowing down and has cranked out […]

Acappellics Anonymous Live In Studio

Acappellics Anonymous Live In Studio

Acappellics Anonymous is a co-ed a cappella group that started about five years ago at Emerson College. Earlier this year, these talented, young singers won first place in the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). “That was a very exciting experience,” says Ari Conte, president of Acappellics Anonymous. “That was the first time that […]

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

You can take the Conor Oberst out of Bright Eyes, but you can’t take the indie folk out of Conor Oberst. With his distinct, warbling voice and talent for meaningful, poetic lyrics, Oberst’s music is unmistakable no matter what moniker it is released under. There is no denying that Oberst shaped his brand of simple […]

“A Sea of Split Peas” by Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett, 24 year old singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, gets the ‘slacker’ label tagged onto her in almost anything ever written about her. I wouldn’t call writing two of the most entertaining and refreshing EPs in recent memory slacking off. I know a lot of slackers, and they can’t find the energy to even listen to […]

“So Long, See You Tomorrow” by Bombay Bicycle Club

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Bombay Bicycle Club on the scene, but they’ve come back (once again) with a completely different sound. Starting off with a jaunty, layered chorus of guitars, their newest album, So Long, See You Tomorrow enters with an all-new air of theatricality infused with psychedelic, almost pop at times, rock. […]
