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 […]

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 […]

Drew Holcomb & Co. impress at recent BMH show

A couple of weekends ago I went to a show where there was no pushing, I stood first row, and the band directly in front of me was Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. I first heard of this indie-folk band when I was watching an episode of How I Met Your Mother and their song […]

Nick Santino releases EP perfect for autumn road trip-ing

A couple weeks ago I reviewed Nick Santino and the Northern Wind’s EP, Going Home. This past week they released a new EP called The Ones You Meet Along the Way: A Collection of Stories from the Road. Since then, I’ve been playing it while walking to class, riding the bus, struggling to write a […]

When you’re not enjoying one of our amazingly free LIVE events, you should be hitting up the legendary venues within your reach right off of the Charles River Campus.  Here are some of the shows I’m looking forward to this semester with a few tracks by some of the artists below. There are tons of […]

If any of y’all have chilled in BU Central while I’ve been on shift, chances are you’ve heard Geographer before. The band has described their sound as “soulful music from outer space” and that certainly isn’t far from the truth. The use of synthesizers and cello in addition to standard band instruments gives them a […]

One of the best things about living in a major city? Easy access to concerts! I spent much of my freshman year getting acquainted with Boston’s numerous venues , and I intend to keep that up this year. My schedule may now be a bit more rigorous, but y’all can bet on me getting to […]

It’s been a busy Wednesday, but I’ve finally stolen the videos from the US Royalty show off of iPhone Dan’s iPhone.  Luckily, I managed to not sing along in the background, cover the camera, or film the entire thing in the wrong format! I’m getting better at working with these newfangled technologies.  Anyways, the show: […]
