It was an emotional night to see a show in Boston on Saturday.  With the Marathon bombing on Monday, a lockdown the day before and the cancellation of all shows in the area, it was questionable as to whether or not this concert would even take place.  Lone Bellow female vocalist Kanene Doheney Pipkin even commented on the extreme energy of the crowd, “did somebody just let you all out of your houses?”  The bands were sweet to us and present with the high-running emotions of the night’s audience.  Opener Twin Forks even began the night with a short Augustana cover of “I Think I’ll Go To Boston” to pay respect to the crazy week we’d all just endured.

Concert Review: Jamie Lidell at Brighton Music Hall in Allston, MA

Jamie Lidell’s 2013 S/T album Jamie Lidell combines the Motown soul of early albums Jim/Multiply and the technologic fanciness of Compass, though a little dancier than the former and a little less aggressive than the last.  In either case, I was expecting a somewhat more mellowed album would likely mean that his performance may have mellowed over time, too.  Sorely mistaken but solidly thrilled, Lidell prevailed as a true neofunk mogul at Brighton Music Hall, rocking a floor-length raincoat and drenching it from the inside with the hot-blooded steam of vitality.

Show of the Week: Nate Wilson Group at Brighton Music Hall on May 13th

May 12, 2011 by  
Filed under Daily Music News, Tour Dates & News

New England local favorites the Nate Wilson Group returns to Brighton Music Hall this Friday on May 13th!  The last time they played there, it was a sold out show so get your tickets early.  It will be a great night of music with Township and Banana Phonetic on the bill as well.

About Nate Wilson Group:

The Nate Wilson Group is the brainchild of New Hampshire based singer-songwriter/keyboardist Nate Wilson.  The band solidified its sound in 2007 with the release of their first studio EP, featuring original tracks “For the Sun,” “Justify,” and “Unbound.”  Gathering much of their inspiration from the riff-heavy psychedelic hard-rock of the 60’s and 70’s, the group has drawn comparisons to 1st generation luminaries Led Zeppelin and Cream, as well as neo-classic and stoner rock contemporaries Wolfmother, The Black Keys, Dead Meadow, and The Raconteurs.

For more on the band, visit them on Facebook or sign up for their official newsletter to receive a free MP3 here.
