Photos | The Ballroom Thieves + Darlingside @ Old South Meeting House

It seems pretty fitting that just days after releasing their new single “Do Something”—an open “letter to our con-man president”—The Ballroom Thieves headline the first ever musical performance at the Old South Meeting House in their home city of Boston. On this evening, the same building that is widely considered the birthplace of the American Revolution hosted a band and a community gathering not only to spend time listening to music that calms, but music that incites action and response. Joined by local favorites Darlingside as a surprise opener, I can say with high levels of certainty that the Thieves…

2017 | Kyle’s Best of 2017

When I set out to make this list, every year it’s a tough prospect to cull it down to 20, and hell it’s damn near impossible to list just 10. But every year I try and gut it out because we owe it to our favorites to give them some love for all the hard work it takes to actually create these records. My ears trended towards the indie rock / pop music this year, and boy there were tons of them to choose from. Coast Modern – Coast Modern I listened to this record a stupid amount of times.…
