On Friday, April 11th, London Grammar played a sold out show at Paradise Rock Club. Joined by their opening act, Haerts, both bands definitely made my $15 ticket worth it. Though I enjoyed Haerts‘s sound, at times it was quite hard to actually to hear their lyrics and the microphones seemed to be way too loud. […]

Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing 21-year-old, Brit crooner, Sam Smith, at the Sinclair. Looking dapper with his undercut, hipster hairstyle, Smith shyly smiled at the crowd and introduced himself as being “from one Cambridge to another,” alluding to his hometown’s proximity to the original Cambridge. Smith opened with “Nirvana,” off of his […]

Eli-Paperboy-Reed-The-True-Loves

If you’re looking for an uplifting, positive-spirited song, you have found the right place, for I have not been able to stop listening to this song (or the album) for the past three weeks. Eli “Paperboy” Reed is an American soul and R&B singer from our very own Beantown. This particular song was released in […]

A few weeks ago, I saw Bastille at the Royale. It was a great show and I highly suggest you catch them the next time they’re in town. Their set wasn’t a surprise for me, unlike that of the opening band, Grizfolk. I knew nothing about this band when they stepped on stage, but by the time […]

Attachment-1

Time to face the cold, hard and chilling facts: you’re back from holiday break and starting a new semester. But hey, don’t cry! You’re going to be ok, you can do it with the help of some great, jangly, rockin’, and surfacious Baltimore tunes courtesy of SUN CLUB.  Sun Club is Shane Justice McCord, Adam Schoen, Devin McCord, Kory […]

Nick Santino appears lonely while performing without former band

After a red eye flight from San Francisco to Boston, a restless nap, and some chicken quesadillas from the dining hall; I went to go watch This Century and Nick Santino on their Up Close and Personal tour. The concert was held at Brighton Music Hall with opening acts Rhett Price and Jillette Johnson. Rhett […]

King Krule show promises artist longevity

King Krule graced the stage of the Brighton Music Hall last Thursday night in support of his debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. I arrived just in time for the headlining set, somewhat surprised to see that the show had sold out. When an artist blows up as fast as King Krule, you can’t […]

Twenty One Pilots tear it up at Paradise

When everyone said that the Twenty One Pilots show was sold out, I definitely underestimated the number of people that would eventually crowd into the Paradise Rock Club this past Tuesday, December 2nd. The sardine analogy would be an understatement. Doors opened at 7:02 sharp and the opening bands took the stage soon after. Sirah, the first opener, […]

Artists to Watch: MisterWives

A couple Fridays ago I was at Brighton Music Hall to see The Royal Concept but I left with a new obsession: MisterWives. A cool blend of folk, dance, soul, and pop, this five-piece band is massively fun on stage and leaves a great first impression. Frontwoman Mandy Lee never stops moving and interacting with […]

When you think of Norwegian music, you instantly think of a Motown-inspired soulful sound, right? If so, then you’ve probably heard of Bernhoft. I’ve been an avid fan of his since I found him while browsing on Spotify, and I finally got to see him perform live at The Sinclair on 11/26. Opening for Bernhoft […]
