Boston Calling Is Right Around the Corner—Which Sets Will You See?

Boston Calling is just around the corner, with the festival kicking off this Friday, May 26th and running through Sunday the 28th. If you’re like me you’ve been dreaming of which acts you’ll see and all the incredible food you’re going to be chomping down on in between sets. But now that we’re just days away, it’s time to start making your schedule. As you’re doing that you might realize that like in previous years, there’s a bit of overlap in the acts, making for some tough decisions. For instance,…

Boston Calling Announces 2017 Lineup: Weezer, Tool, Mumford & Sons, The 1975 & More

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…

STREAM: The Orphan The Poet “Terrible Things”

Alternative rock band, The Orphan The Poet are releasing an EP titled Terrible Things on June 3rd. In anticipation of the release, the band are streaming the EP’s first single, and title track, “Terrible Things.” The song, which sounds like a mixture of Mayday Parade, Atreyu, and Weezer, is a catchy punch-to-the-gut that talks about getting too caught up in our own personal nightmares. “I’ve got these terrible dreams where I do terrible things, and I don’t want to believe, no I don’t want to believe it’s you,” sings frontman David Eselgroth layered over poppy, alternative instrumentals and…

WATCH: Lee Corey Oswald, Allison Weiss “El Scorcho” Weezer Cover

Lee Corey Oswald and Allison Weiss have teamed up to cover Weezer’s hit song, “El Scorcho.” The pop punk artists joined together to do a cool, stripped down version of the track as a part of No Sleep Records’ Acoustic Warehouse Sessions. Like the title states, the performance takes place in a crowded corner of a warehouse which adds sort of a comforting vibe. Basically, it makes me want to sing songs with my friends too. Check it out for yourself below! This summer, you can catch Weiss on the…

ALBUM REVIEW: Great Sale Day ‘Wild & Chunky’

For hardcore musicians Andrew Fisher (Basement), Ed McRae (previously of Your Demise), Daniel Frye (Unholy Majesty) and Ben Saker (Breaking Point), Great Sale Day is a way to have fun making music with no expectations. The result? An 11-track album where Weezer meets The Beatles and The Beach Boys in a melting pot of 90s alternative rock. Great Sale Day deceptively begins their debut album with the hard hitting guitar intro to, “Do Not Want To Know.” As soon as Fisher starts singing, the listener knows there is no chance…
