The air is cooling down and the cozy feeling of autumn is starting to brace us in its arms. Broken Social Scene is one of my favorite bands to listen to as I reflect on the decay that begins to envelop the summer foliage. With a new B-Sides release, their 2023 tour will ruminate on old memories, revisiting those fleeting moments in time that are mirrored through soul-churning music. Playing at Royale, Broken Social Scene is sure to awaken the tempered hearts of many and swoon the crowd with an intimate musical scrapbook that continues to live on.

Northeastern alumni are coming back to Boston September 28th! The alt-indie band debuted their single “Astrovan” back in 2016 and has rocked Boston ever since. Every concert feels as intimate as their first with members talking openly with the crowd and just having a good time with their bandmates. Especially at a venue like MGM Music Hall at Fenway, you’re bound for an unforgettable night.
