Photos + Review | Copenhagen Beer & Music Celebration

The Copenhagen Beer and Music Celebration originated in Copenhagen, Denmark and has been celebrating the blissful marriage between beer and music for years. This weekend marked the first ever CBC in the United States and Boston was fortunate enough to host. Friday night’s session kicked off with music from Boston’s local band Vunderbar followed by folk rock band, The Barr Brothers from Montreal. Unfortunately, just as Friday’s headliner, experimental indie rock band Yo La Tengo, was finishing their set storms sent event goers running for the shelter of the beer tents. The high energy banjo twang of the local folk…

Review | The Barr Brothers

Photography by Andre Guerette The Barr Brothers – Beggar in the Morning It is not very obvious when first listening to The Barr Brothers that the Montreal four piece includes a harpist.

Review | The Barr Brothers at the Lizard Lounge

Barr Brothers – “Beggar In The Morning” by indiemusicfilter Montreal-based quartet The Barr Brothers played a set Tuesday evening that was perfectly suited for the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge.
