Photos | Darlingside + Twain @ The Sinclair

Anytime a hometown band returns to Boston, they’re bound to be met with exuberance. But to say the crowd at The Sinclair was excited to welcome Darlingside home would be a severe understatement. There was a palpable excitement throughout the venue last Thursday night, even before the lights dimmed to welcome the evening’s opening act Twain. Even before the first notes flew, there was a giddy anticipation from the folks close to the stage. Singing and rocking to the house music in anticipation of welcoming Darling side home. And the band—touring behind their brand new release Extralife, did not disappoint.…

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…

2015 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

Welp… I don’t think it would be at all possible to put this off any longer than I have. The yearly tradition of picking a favorite kid once again has me denying that I actually need to do it (they’re all special in their own way!) Someone much smarter than me once told me that limitations create value, and since time is also short, I’m going to adopt the style of the #50WordReview for each of the albums below. (For the record, they are in an order determined by the total number of track plays for all tracks on the…
