PHOTOS: Galactic, Toots & the Maytals @ House of Blues, Boston 4/12/13

After last week’s bombing at the Boston Marathon and subsequent week of anxiety and rage that followed, we decided to hold onto this photo gallery and wait for the right time when everyone felt like they were putting the pieces back together. The event and media fury were a sad thing to see, but the city of Boston really came together after the attacks and even got together on the police scanner to try to catch the responsible parties. Now that it’s thankfully over, let’s check out what went down at the House of Blues on the Friday before the race. Galactic and Toots & the Maytals came to play a rocking fun show and Adam Marcinek was there to get us photos. And really the only thing he wanted to say about the show came a week later when we finally decided to put the post live: he asked that we include an editors note to donate to The One Fund. We’re in no position to refute a Bostonians position on the subject. Read on for the gallery, and make sure you go out and see live music in Boston soon, always something that helps soothe the soul. -Editor
