On Saturday afternoon, Bleachers, started and led by Fun.‘s lead guitarist Jack Antonoff, played their first show in Boston at Boston Calling. Although this was the third time I had seen them within a span of five months, they did not disappoint. It just so happened that they had been at every festival I had […]

After attending the Betty Who concert a couple weeks ago, I am solidly forever a part of the Who Crew (I even have a button to prove it). Betty Who rocked the stage with her almost all female band (her drummer was a male) and the Berklee College of Music graduate did her degree justice. […]

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.

This led me to discover A Great Big World. If they sound familiar, it’s because they have a song out right […]

Frank & Dependent, Hall of Mirrors, Brazil spook up Phoenix Landing

Three songs deep into their October 29th set at Phoenix Landing, Frank & Dependent singer Jane Fitzsimmons leaned into the mic to coyly introduce her band: “We are Insane Clown Posse.” While it was more of an acknowledgment of the evening’s theatrics—almost every act that performed that night was clad in black and white skull […]

Artists to Watch: Royal Teeth

Back in September when I was given the opportunity to cover Boston Calling for BU Central, I knew absolutely none of the bands. But, while trying to learn about some of them before I went, I discovered one of my new favorite bands, the New Orleans-based pop-rock group, Royal Teeth. Their song “Hold Me” instantly caught […]
