Is there a better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than seeing Clucth at the House Of Blues in Boston? This is our fourth piece on these guys this year I believe and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s either because a) We really like ‘em and think you should too or b) They’re really great and we think you should like ‘em. My second time seeing Clutch this year and somewhere in the double digits overall, Clutch never [...]
Can you believe that it’s been 25 years since the release of Living Colour’s debut “Vivid?” The pioneering band is still in fine form, as their recent performance in Boston can attest to.
The old school can still bring it live (in case you had any doubt.)
GG went to see Playback, one of the groups from the TV show X Factor USA. Of course he did.
I barely go out on New Year’s Eve. I did First Night in Boston like twice and froze my ass off. I’ve been to a bar or two but found them to be a bit overwhelming (Do I really have to pay a cover to a place I visit once a week?!?) and, of course, I’ve stayed in. The one thing I have never done is been to a show on New Year’s Eve so it’s fitting that my first [...]

Ireland’s Ash came to New York City’s Bowery Ballroom, bringing a lengthy catalog of music with them. Check out what May had to say about the show!
Having seen two Ben Folds performances prior to Saturday night’s show at the House of Blues in Boston, I knew I was in for a good time before I even arrived inside the venue. However, this show marked the first time I’d be able to see Ben Folds Five, the trio that jump-started my man crush on the bespectacled ivory tickler. By the end of the night, I would develop man crushes on bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee [...]
Picture a reggae fan. Got it? Odds are you’ve got one of two people in mind: a dreaded, rasta-wearing, herb-toking laid back islander or your modern college frat type. It’s an unfortunate stereotype, but a commonly held one. Now just do one more thing for me: throw that stereotype out the window, because the Easy Star concert last Wednesday didn’t conform to any of that. It was just a diverse group of people dancing and celebrating to some damn good [...]
It’s been five years since Maximo Park toured North America; five years since their last Boston gig, a respectable showing at the Paradise. It’s been closer to seven years since they first played the Middle East. Check out our review of their show!
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band recently played two nights at Boston’s historic Fenway Park. Our own Dennis was there-here’s his account of both nights.
