Photos | Ron Gallo + Naked Giants @ Once Somerville

It had been a solid 8 years since I’d seen that much energy packed into a few hours. This past Friday night at Once Somerville, Ron Gallo, Naked Giants, and Gym Shorts stormed the stage and left all of those in attendance grinning like fools and wondering what just hit them. If you’ve never seen Ron Gallo and his cohorts perform their wizardry, the experience is something you should set your mind to getting out for. From the opening trumpet call and reading, to the band member swap with Naked Giants to the closing, thrashing Beatles cover, there isn’t a…

Song of the Week | Langhorne Slim – Life Is Confusing

Photo Credit: Harvey Robinson The WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is focused this time on the beautiful new single from Langhorne Slim titled, “Life Is Confusing”. The musician was born Sean Scolnick and took his stage name from his hometown in Pennsylvania. He’s been crafting his distinct style of Americana for almost two decades, combining elements of folk with country, chamber-pop and punk, to create a sound that is truly original and defies any of our attempts at musical categorization, which makes Langhorne an artistic force to be reckoned with. “Life Is Confusing” is off the now Nashville-based…

Photos | Colter Wall + The Local Honeys @ Atwood’s

You know those shows you put on your calendar six months before they actually happen? Sunday night at Atwood’s was one of those for me. Colter Wall book-ended this past weekend at Atwood’s Tavern with his Speedy Creek Band and the ever-charming Local Honeys. If you weren’t able to catch either one of the shows (or the matinee set by the Honeys on Sunday,) it’s likely safe to say you planned poorly. Don’t let it happen again. In case you’re unfamiliar, Colter Wall is the 22-year old Canadian country/folk artist who—in a very short time—has drawn (deserved) comparisons to the…

Mixtape | October 2017

Press Play October was a spooky good month for new music, and I’m psyched for the broad range of music that we’ve got on this playlist.

As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.
