Photos + Review | Chris Farren @ Once Somerville

Donned in glitter and a gold necklace, Chris Farren performed yet another Perfect Set at Once Somerville on January 30th on what he said was his biggest headlining show to date. Just Chris, a guitar, and a lot of projections, there was nothing lacking about his solo performance. A super funny internet presence brought to life on stage with the theme ‘Born Hot’, Farren brings the whole room in on the joke with balloons with his face on them, projections letting us know how soon his birthday is, and his own art “I drew this”. Although heavy on the entertainment…

Photos + Review | Bonny Light Horseman + Erin Rae @ The Sinclair

On a chilly February night in Cambridge, Massachusetts we packed ourselves in tight at The Sinclair to fill our souls to the brim with the warm and comforting sounds created by a handful of the most talented musicians to ever share a stage. Bonny Light Horseman and Erin Rae guided a sold-out crowd through a musical collection of songs that made us all forget the outside world for an all too brief moment. I don’t think I have ever seen a group of such talented musicians being so comfortable with each other onstage and creating beautiful harmonies that were on…
