show reviews.

Tor Miller @ Cafe 939

I had decided to go to Tor Miller because his music and a small venue sounded like a good place to spend a Thursday evening. Miller had just released an EP titled American English, which subsequently led him on tour. After waiting for doors to open 40 minutes after they were supposed to, the short line […]

Danny Brown @ Paradise Rock Club

After three nights of live music and a most unfortunate series of events leading to me walking into Paradise thirty minutes before Danny Brown walked on stage, I was ready for this experience to be as cathartic as possible. The pop-rap which was playing obtrusively from the speakers halts, and is replaced with the huge […]

Car Seat Headrest and Lucy Dacus @ The Sinclair

Lucy Dacus The opening act, Lucy Dacus, takes the stage alone, illuminated by soft blue lighting. Without any introduction she sings “The first time I tasted somebody else’s spit, I had a coughing fit,” which elicits a few scattered chuckles amongst the growing crowd. The lighthearted opening line leads to a somber, personal ode to […]

NAO @ Brighton Music Hall

While there was much dispute between fans on whether the correct pronunciation is “now” or “nay-o”, concert goers leaving Brighton Music Hall unanimously agreed that NAO put on one heck of a show. Coming all the way from England, the self-proclaimed “wonky funk” diva showed no signs of jet lag as she radiated her warmth […]

Thirdstory @ Paradise Rock Club

The first time I heard the airtight harmonies of Thirdstory was in New York City through a friend. The trio, Ben Lusher, Elliot Skinner, and Richard Saunders, gained popularity on Youtube through their refreshing take on pop hits like Taylor Swift’s “Style” and Sam Smith’s “I’m Not The Only One”. Millions of views, and thousands […]

Hiatus Kaiyote @ Paradise Rock Club

The first time I saw Hiatus Kaiyote was at the Nice Jazz Festival last summer, performing after Ibeyi, to a crowd of barely 50 that was peppered with empty spots– that was not the scene before me on August 1st at the Paradise Rock Club.  On a Monday night, as I approached the venue, it was […]

Lollapalooza 2016: Vic Mensa’s Politically Charged Performance

Lollapalooza is an annual music festival in Chicago that has always been a very diverse musical environment, hosting bands like Pinegrove and the Front Bottoms on the same bill as Ellie Goulding and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is also a place for a different kind of division. The police presence at Lolla is […]

AlunaGeorge @ Paradise Rock Club

I arrived at the Paradise Rock Club thirty minutes after the publicized door opening time, and the line was still wrapped around the block. The crowd ranged from college students to people in their thirties to die-hard fans who obviously were not from the Boston area (yes, I met a woman who flew from California […]

LANY @ The Sinclair

Wowowow we love LANY. We were NOT prepared for the live show we were about to witness last week at the Sinclair. Odessa, the opener for the night, is a glowing breath of fresh air. Her set lit the room up in a beautiful golden wave, playing songs from her debut self-titled album. The album is an accumulation of […]
