Photos + Review | Charly Bliss + Emily Reo @ The Sinclair

Charly Bliss is a band that looks how they sound— eccentric, colorful, and bubbly. The band gave an energetic and loving performance to a sold out Sinclair crowd Sunday, June 9th. Donned in glitter, all four members bounced around the stage, leaving no dull moments. Emily Reo opened the show with a charming performance that coupled perfectly with the show. They delivered a catchy, indie-pop set with beautiful electronic harmonies and plenty of tasteful keytar. Emily made sure not to leave without taking a video of the crowd singing happy birthday to her mom. Lead singer of Charly Bliss, Eva…

Photos + Review | The Distillers + Starcrawler @ Royale

The Distillers tore down The Royale on a rainy Tuesday night in Boston on May 29th. Starcrawler opened the show with an undeniably explosive energy. Lead singer Arrow de Wilde tears herself apart on stage, quite literally tearing her outfit off, which appears to be covered in blood, to match her face, also streaked with blood. She spends about half the set throwing herself on the ground, openly weeping into the microphone. The performance included swinging instruments, crowdsurfing, and even sending a guitar into the audience for dozens to grab and claw at. Starcrawler made sure to play their cover…

Photos | Pup + Diet Cig + Ratboys @ Royale

PUP rocked a sold out Boston crowd at the Royale on the first night of tour for their latest album Morbid Stuff. Although the band’s third album came out less than a month before the show, fans erupted for new songs which are immediately becoming classics. Ratboys opened the show with some heartfelt indie rock right before Diet Cig slammed the high kicks, intersectional pep talks, and some delightfully poppy tunes. PUP’s electricity had the crowd moving all night complete with a nonstop mosh pit and crowd surfers. Even PUP’s singer, Stefan made sure to jump in the crowd during their…

Photos | Robert Ellis + Ian O’Neil @ Great Scott

A night that begins with Ian O’Neil and ends with Robert Ellis in a tiny packed venue like Great Scott is all I could ever ask for a Sunday night (while Game of Thrones isn’t on yet) and hell if this night didn’t pay off in spades. Since I last saw Robert Ellis on the stage at Boston’s Great Scott last May, it seemed as though Texas Piano Man was an inevitability. During a set with Traveller, Fritz, Chisel and band would leave Robert some time alone to tickle the ivories, and put on his best Billy Joel. From that…

Photos + Review | Son Little + Christopher Paul Stelling @ City Winery

Friday, March 1st was a pretty special night for the Music Savage gang as we got to spend an evening with two Newport Folk Festival alumni in downtown Boston. Two of our favorite Anti- Records artists shared some shows together for a few days and we were lucky enough on this chilly night to have them stop in our area to warm our hearts and souls with brilliant music for a few hours at City Winery. First up this evening was Asheville, North Carolina-based musician Christopher Paul Stelling whose fourth studio album (the second for ANTI-), Itinerant Arias, was released…

Photos + Review | Liz Cooper and The Stampede + Harpooner @ Great Scott

Last Monday, February 25th us winter-weary Boston folks got a much needed southern heatwave in the form of a rocking whirlwind of a trio known as Liz Cooper & The Stampede. The jet stream pulled the psych-folk-soul currents directly from Nashville, Tennessee right through the doors of Great Scott, and created a raucous tornado of guitar-fueled energy that swept up folks eager for a good night of tunes. Cooper expertly controlled the stage with her guitar prowess, while Grant Prettyman, (bass), and Ryan Usher(drums) kept the rock n’ roll storm swirling around the jam-packed venue. Liz and the boys kicked…

Photos | Rayland Baxter + Illiterate Light @ The Sinclair

If there’s one thing you’re guaranteed with a Rayland Baxter show it’s a damn good time. Add in a little Illiterate Light and you’ve got the makings of a what-the-f-just-happened good time. This time round Rayland brought his crew to a sold-out gig at The Sinclair to play through crowd favorites old and new, bringing new spirit to his classics and new energy to songs off his new album Wide Awake. With all of the cool you expect from Rayland, he and his band of merry makers made trekking out on a freezing New England night 100% worth it. But…
