Milo Greene at the House of Blues

The House of Blues got a taste of LA Saturday night when self-described cinematic pop band Milo Greene strolled through town. Opening for Bombay Bicycle Club, the five-member band introduced the crowed to a host of new songs from their upcoming sophomore album Control (hitting physical and digital shelves January 27th), as well as old favorites off their self-titled debut album. Behind an alluring cloud of fog, the band members divvied up singing responsibilities, layering a haunting harmony on some of their best tracks, like “Perfectly Aligned” and “What’s The Matter.” As an opener, it’s usually hard for a band to get the audience… click headline to Read More


The Master of Summer Vibes and Hawaiian Shirts: Kygo at the Sinclair

Tickets for Kygo at the Sinclair sold out on the first day. That’s when I realized this concert was something I needed to be part of. 22-year-old Norwegian DJ and music producer, Kygo, has barely been producing for one year now, but has already catapulted himself into the big league of electronic music. This past summer, he performed in festivals such as the infamous Tomorrowland in Belgium and America’s Tomorrowworld in Atlanta, where he filled in for the legendary Avicii. ITunes categorizes his music as dance, but I find the term, tropical-house, used by his fans more appropriate. One of… click headline to Read More


Boston Calling Fall 2014

ELECTRIC CASTAWAYS X BAND OF MISFITS X BAD ACID TRIP – Friday, September 5 Boston Calling sandwiched Neutral Milk Hotel’s folksy rock in between Future Island’s electronica and The National’s trippy tunes. We’ve got your Friday evening summation of the oddly delightful juxtaposition. 6:45 Future Islands Future Islands has been bopping from music festival to music festival across the country, so it’s no surprise that the well-practiced alt-electronic band wound up being the first act of the entire festival. The Baltimore band gave audience members an out-of-body experience with Samuel Herring’s gruesome grunted lyrics and celestial sythpop beats that inspired… click headline to Read More

Oberhofer at House of Blues 11/16

What might have been forgotten in the wake of the insane amounts of jumping around to skuzzy synth-pop at Matt and Kim’s show at House of Blues was how freaking good the opener was. Openers rarely get credit, I said to myself in my post-show euphoric state. Therefore, I thought, Oberhofer had killed it so much that they had deserved their own review. Oberhofer is the Anthony Davis of opening bands: they’re obscenely young, full of promise, and possess the ability to jump really high for extended periods of time. Led by eccentric frontman Brad Oberhofer and his gang of… click headline to Read More

Matt & Kim Bring the House Down

  For more pictures of Matt & Kim, check out the WTBU gallery. I’m not afraid to admit that I had my doubts, walking into the House of Blues to see Brooklyn duo, Matt & Kim. I remember being a freshman in high school, playing the band’s first albums on repeat — obsessing over the infectious, edgy pop tune, Daylight. More recently, though, the band has gone a different route, veering away from the signature Matt & Kim sound, focusing more on produced, top-40 sounding tracks. While an interesting departure, I will admit that some of the tracks on the… click headline to Read More
