Because come on, you already know the music is amazing. You’ve seen the lineup. But more on that later.

When Boston Calling first announced plans to infiltrate Boston, I couldn’t have been more excited. It had been a long time coming that my home city have its own music festival, and what Boston Calling has brought the city over the years is nothing short of incredibly special. We’ve covered the festival since its inception, watching it transform, but never failing to provide stellar line-ups, and enough food, fun, and general entertainment to keep the entire weekend packed with excitement. As announced back in May, the festival will be changing locations from City…

Boston Calling Closes Out Day 3 With The Front Bottoms, Janelle Monae, HAIM

With Saturday’s crazy hot temps out of the way, Boston proves that if you don’t like the weather, just wait a day and it’s bound to change. In the case of this weekend, it’s gone from a sweltering 90 degrees Saturday to a cool, cloudy 57 on Sunday. Despite the welcome cool down, the plaza looks a little sparser than it did the night before—but it’s not for the lack of talent.

Coming off a three year hiatus, Underoath is back. Following a few festival appearances and the first half of the Rebirth Tour completed, the band took to a sold out crowd in Boston next to the historic Fenway Park. From the moment I walked in the door, the energy was nothing short of palpable. While the band had not been gone for that long, this reunion was about far more than just the name Underoath. After a record and two singles without him, former drummer Aaron Gillespie rejoined the unit…
