The month of March is over, and it’s time for the world to bloom a bit. This month was especially difficult to keep the total tracks to 40.

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…

Mixtape | October 2017

Everything from power pop jams to jangly americana to lo-fi ambling indie rock. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.

Photos | The Ballroom Thieves @ Island Creek Oysters Pop-up Shop

What do you get when you put The Ballroom Thieves, Island Creek Oysters, and Newport Folk Festival together on a warm December Monday night on Boston’s Newbury Street? Well all signs would point to damn good time and all those signs would be right. This past Monday, a small crowd of lucky folks crowded into the ICO pop-up shop (at 142 Newbury St., just in case you’re looking for a last minute present for the mothershuckers on your list) and were treated to good beer, fantastic oysters and a short set of great tunes from the Thieves. And even after…
