Photos | Langhorne Slim + Twain @ The Sinclair

As we move into fall here in Massachusetts, we see the return of a lot of things: students, traffic, and cold weather, just to name a few. On the upside, we start to see the concert scene kick into overdrive. And the return of Langhorne Slim and The Law to the area helps to mark the beginning of what promises to be an insanely good season for live music fans in the greater Boston area.
