New Jersey rockers Titus Andronicus wrapped up a late-summer New England tour with their second sold-out night at the Middle East Upstairs on Tuesday. Like-minded and associated acts Liquor Store and Wicked Kind opened.
This past weekend RadioBDC ventured back to Thompson Island for our second-annual Island In The Sun, presented by Sapporo and Malibu Rum. Thanks to all who joined us for a day of fun, games, and sets by Parks and local legends, The Lemonheads.
Within the first twenty feet, Andrew Schmidt was sold on it. Prior to his first visit to Superpedestrian’s office in Cambridge, Schmidt knew enough about the Copenhagen Wheel to see the potential. He had been introduced to the electric bike startup by a friend. The Superpedestrian team was looking for someone to do the sort of marketing work Schmidt was currently doing for Puma. But up until that ride, there understandably was some uncertainty. More
Stoner/doom metal legends Sleep began a U.S. tour last night with a massive 2-hour set at Boston's House of Blues. Heavy-psych collective Earthless were joined by Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis for an opening set.
Not too long ago I ran into Roger Lussier, Pretty & Nice’s bassist and keyboardist. He was telling me they would be coming out with a new EP soon and showed me some of the art he was making for it. I was excited, but soon after, I heard rumblings of a hiatus, which made me nervous. The band then announced that along with the release of their new EP "Infinity Forever," Pretty & Nice would be going on indefinite hiatus. In boxing, it's a move you might call a rope-a-dope. With one last chance to catch them on Saturday at the Great Scott - really it’s a no brainer, this will be an awesome show. More
Oakland stoner/sludge metal trio High On Fire, fronted by Sleep guitarist Matt Pike, opened their Converse Rubber Tracks Live tour with a sold-out free show at The Sinclair on Tuesday night. Brooklyn metal quintet Blackest opened.
This past weekend, fans of all kinds showed up to the Seaport World Trade Center, many in their sartorial splendor, to celebrate Boston Comic Con 2014. Throughout the course of the event, which featured Sean Astin, Jason Momoa of "Game of Thrones," and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels among many more special guests, one of the best parts was catching a glimpse of our city's cosplayers (the art of building elaborate costumes to represent specific characters, for those who aren't familiar with the term). We were able to catch up with the creators of some of our favorite costumes and gain a dose of their inspiration behind them.
On Friday night, August 8, hordes of spirited bikers took to Copley Square for an evening group ride around the city. As is custom with any of this summer's Boston Bike Parties, the gathering had a theme as well, with riders decked out in MBTA costumes of all shapes, sizes, and designs. We were there to send the spoked-out party animals on their merry way, but not before catching up with some of the party's craziest characters.
Prolific Japanese metal trio Boris brought their latest tour, supporting their June release "Noise," to Boston on Tuesday night. Chicago sludge quintet The Atlas Moth and the violin-doom of Salt Lake City's SubRosa offered support.
