Hola! Apologies for the sick/travel day yesterday, hope you didn't mind the Bathtub Interview re-runs. But we're back in full-frontal force this afternoon, as we teased a few Class of 2013 bands on BOSTON ACCENTS today, as well as hyped up some gigs around town and Rock Show going on at the Middle East right about now. Be sure to flip to WFNX on your internet radio dial tomorrow at 5pm EST as we invite all the Class of 2013 bands featured in tomorrow's Phoenix to the WFNX studio. We'll debut a few new tracks from the artists, and have a good time. Hilarity will, no doubt, ensue.
Here's today's playlist:
BOOM SAID THUNDER “The Saint” -- New track off debut LP Exist, out March 1. Listen to WFNX all day Thursday as this is the Boston Accents Song of the Day. The trio plays T.T. The Bear's Place in Cambridge tonight with Soccer Mom, Soft Pyramids, and Maine's Endless Jags.
SECRET LOVER “Rubber” -- Another Class of 2013 artist, representing the great city of Wormtown, Massachusetts. The lead track off their 2012 summer demo.
