The Black Keys are one of the most prolific, influential and successful bands of the past 20 years. Something special happens when the duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney create music and further their discography as the Black Keys. They win Grammy’s and sell out stadiums all across the world. But what happens when other sonic avenues are...
British post-punk band Savages have grabbed the music scene by the ears and screamed directly in it's face. The female foursome of Jehnny Beth, Gemma Thompson, Ayse Hassan and Fay Milton have been on a mission since they released their first single "Shut Up" off of their debut album Silence Yourself.

The word "gifted" does not even begin to scratch the surface of how well Colin Stetson can play the bass saxophone. He has mastered the art of circular breathing allowing him to consistently exhale and defy the very mechanics of the human respiratory system.

On 3/14 Coheed and Cambria played at the Boston House of Blues for a sold out crowd. The line was out the door and around the block at the security check nearly 2 hours before show time. Amongst all the chatter, people were discussing what songs would be played and what to expect at the next show on...
Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken, better known as Big Gigantic, played another one of their high octane and high energy shows last Friday (2/15/2013) night at the House of Blues in Boston. The large Big Gigantic (confusing I know) fanbase was in full attendance for the show and were dazzled by the signature lights and sounds. Gigantic played their...
