Photos + Review | Summer Cannibals + Field Mouse + Lost Dog @ Once Somerville

Summer Cannibals brought their fantastic riffs to Once Somerville on August 16th. Massachusetts band Lost Dog opened up the show, followed by Field Mouse, who had released their new album “Meaning” that day. The band described their songs as being “mostly about the world ending… because it is,” which prompted a reply of “thank god” from somewhere in the crowd, answered in a validating laugh throughout the room. The show was filled with energy and humor from all three bands. Shred masters Summer Cannibals kept the crowd enthralled with constant hair flips and amazing tunes. Their set was lively and…

Photos + Review | The Menzingers + Queen of Jeans + The Sidekicks @ The Palladium Upstairs

The Menzingers played to a very sweaty, sold-out crowd in Worcester at The Palladium Upstairs. The Philly-born band have had a strong community of Massachusetts devotees for years, after playing a myriad of venues across the state, ranging from this same room at the Palladium to the House of Blues. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more impassioned crowd than a Menzingers crowd. The entire room sings every word to every song, from any era of the band’s discography. Even their newest song “Anna”, released not two weeks prior, was well-known and loved by the crowd. “Anna” is the first…
