It's the last weekend in April, and there's plenty of rockin' left to do. Not only will the Rumble be crowning a new champion, but BUFU Fest at the Cambridge Elk's Lodge will showcase two days worth of new bands from Boston and beyond. More
Yes, it's a time-honored saying and a good piece of advice. Listen To Your Mother is also a series of live-staged readings to celebrate Mother's Day. Co-producer and performer Cheryl Stober explains. More
As many of you have likely heard, Mayor Walsh is taking to Reddit today at 2:30 p.m. to answer your questions as part of the site's signature Ask Me Anything (AMA) series. It's likely that most will flock to the message boards with a bunch of loaded political topics (so not important), but we're more interested in things like what he'd tell the city in the event of a Sharknado disaster or whose combover (other than his own) he admires the most.

Just one more week of April showers left, so most of this weekend’s events are happening indoors. But then it’s all May flowers and sunshine from here on out! Or at least until the humidity kicks in and we get the occasional “summer shower” (that’s what I call it when you bump into a really sweaty guy on the T).
It's been a year in the making, but friends and Boston-based creatives Anna Leocha and Holly Copeland have released the first issue of their new art and literature journal, HUM. In accordance with the release of the 44-page kickoff issue, the two women at the helm of the artistic project threw a launch party this past Saturday at a Seaport District loft, where artists and supporters browsed art from the issue's 15-featured artists and caroused around drinking PBR tall cans.

“I can’t believe we pulled that off,” beams Greg Hum, shaking his head as Framingham street lights come into view over his handlebars.
It’s 2 a.m. on Marathon Monday. Through force of will, Hum and his team have successfully shepherded hundreds of cyclists and their wheels from Boston to Southborough to follow the marathon route back to the city. More
There’s something about listening to a song on vinyl that just doesn’t translate in digital format. With the convenience that digital technology allows, songs can easily get lost in the shuffle; with vinyl, a song is more long lasting. A little more chronic. You hold it in your hands; you peruse the album art and liner notes; you play it over and over again. You know that the people who pressed the vinyl really believe in the songs on it. More
Boston Calling Music Festival, the city's premiere semiannual outdoor music event, is yet to occur this spring, but already festival organizers have decided to release the fall lineup into the world. The festival, which will take place Sept. 5-7 on City Hall Plaza will feature five headliners, as opposed to the standard three that the festival usually presents. More
Marathon Monday is a day of celebration. Celebration of the city of Boston, its dedicated runners, and just the fact that it's finally Spring and maybe it's okay to let loose a bit. BDCwire made its way from Heartbreak Hill to Boylston Street, meeting the different characters along the trail, most of whom were there to celebrate some part of the day, from the race, to the sunshine, to the beer. If anything, it was a sign that, a year after tragedy, Boston is perfectly okay going back to how it always was, and we've got the pics to prove it. Here's what the crowd looked like, and what they had to say. More
Pretty slow week coming up in Boston. Maybe catch up on sleep, or finally finish that book you borrowed from a friend six months ago. What’s up with all the Adidas apparel around town? It’s really back in style, I guess. Bright colors, too. Weird. Anyways, on to this week’s events.
