Photos | Andy Shauf @ Royale Boston

Andy Shauf enchanted the crowd at Royale Boston last Wednesday night with his band. They played plenty of songs from their latest album Norm. Through storytelling and character work, Shauf takes the listener with his character Norm through heartbreak, new love, and even stalking an unattainable love interest.Charm and chills are the two recurring themes in these songs. It was a beautiful night with his band that included their signature woodwinds as well as a lovely supporting set from Marina Allen.

Photos | Andrew Bird + Madison Cunningham + Ted Poor @ MGM Music Hall Fenway

Andrew Bird played to a captivated crowd at MGM Music Hall Fenway in Boston on Thursday April 13. This was the final stop on this leg of the Inside Problem’s Tour. The show began with Ted Poor, drummer for Andrew Bird’s band, performing a solo drum set. This was followed by Madison Cunningham’s solo set. Both these openers would return to the stage to play and harmonize with Bird’s band. The setlist was beautiful from start to finish with plenty of songs from their latest release and tour namesake, Inside Problems. The show was complete with Andrew Bird’s bewitching whistling,…

Photos | Against Me! @ House of Blues (Cleveland)

[I]’d gone in expecting audience participation at the hands of some of Against Me!’s more anthemic songs, like “I Was a Teenage Anarchist” and “Unconditional Love.” But nearly everything on their setlist became a rowdy singalong. It’s rare to see a band play with such obvious joy, and I’m not sure there was a point in their set where Laura wasn’t smiling. With very little time devoted to introducing songs and only a brief break before the encore, Against Me! fit in old favorites like “Pints of Guinness Make You Strong,” “Don’t Lose Touch,” and a lively rendition of “Turn…


Review + Photos | Portland Cello Project’s Extreme Cello Dance Party @ Doug Fir (PDX)

Photos by Colin McLaughlin [B]y now it’s no secret: Portland is a place unlike any other. From a certain over-saturated television show to the New York Times’ ongoing love affair, there’s no denying we live in a quirky little paradise. Sometimes, though, a reminder is necessary to regain perspective – to make lifelong residents and recent transplants appreciate the city’s charm. The Portland Cello Project’s Extreme  Cello Dance Party is that reminder. Tales of this not-to-be-missed event’s gleeful atmosphere have spread across the city, and the fifth annual Extreme Dance Party has been sold out for weeks. The Portland Cello…


Photos | Efterklang + Nightlands @ Doug Fir (PDX)

Photos by Colin McLaughlin [O]n a night where I had to make myself go out, Efterklang impressed. It takes quite a bit of skill to turn someone’s whole mood around, but that’s exactly what Efterklang did with their slightly operatic and frequently creative arrangements. Maybe the lush instrumentation and gorgeous harmonies that guide “The Klang” — as Dave Hartley (of Nightlands) jokingly called them — is sourced from the same stuff that makes them such thoughtful crowd pleasers. Or maybe indie rock doesn’t give us many opportunities to see bands let down their hair and show how much fun they are…
