David Bazan – Living Room Tour (Random Living Room in Allston) – 11/15

David Bazan is a bit of a live performance innovator. Deciding that touring in traditional venues, with all the costs associated with that such as paying the band, van to travel, etc., Bazan asks for hosts to hold small acoustic performances in fans’ living rooms.

Disclosure-Caracal-560x560

Album Review: Caracal by Disclosure

For Dance acts like disclosure, the sophomore album is a unique hurdle. After Settle, an album whose runaway success saw the UK-based duo crossing over into mainstream circulation, Disclosure has the unenviable position of making another dent in the pop charts, and proving to skeptical dance music fans that their back-ward looking style isn’t a […]

Dawes @ The Royale 9/22

Dawes || The Royale || 9/22 Many bands try for that “classic rock” feel. That instrumentation, the vocal style, the lyrics. But many of these bands come across as a cheap imitation of the golden age of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Dawes is not one of these imitators or imposters. They are the real deal. When […]


Dustin Kensrue and Andy Hull @ The Sinclair 4/26

Dustin Kensrue and Andy Hull  ||  The Sinclair || 4.26 Opener Tanner Merritt of O’brother put it perfectly when he said, “Welcome to Sad Bastards Anonymous.” He was referring to two giants in the world of sad-guy alternative rock, Andy Hull and Dustin Kensrue, who played at The Sinclair on Sunday 4/26. Tanner Merritt opened […]
