pleasures are a pain in my ass. Not necessarily my adoration for said
pleasures. They wouldn't be labeled such if I didn't love them. Rather,
it's explaining the rationale behind my asinine passions. I probably
care too much about American Idol, drench 90 percent of all food I
consume in hot sauce, and listen to far too much house and techno to be
considered legally sane.
We are psyched to report that HOMEGROWN III, the third installment of Bodies of Water Shows' annual all-ages underground music festival, is set to take place October 14-16 at Fourthwall Project. This year's working roster of artists suggests this will be the most awesome Homegrown yet; 54 acts are confirmed already, including California's Grass Widow, White Fence, and Truman Peyote; New York's Prince Rama, The Men, and Extreme Animals; locals like the Needy Visions, Hands and Knees, Bobb Trimble and his Flying Spiders, Cuffs, Birthdays, Quilt, and more.
Unlike the countless fools who descended upon Government Center this past weekend for the Boston Urban Music Fest (story on that coming soon), we come in peace. That is to say that while we're pitting these two Hub anthems against one another, it's for nothing other than some fun, and to provoke you - Bostonians, readers, etc.
2011 is the year of the Successful Boston Music Festivals. DIY Fest ruled. Starlab Fest ’11 was simply amazing. Boston is hungry for more.
The recording studio/venue showcased Boston’s finest and Ohio’s metalest at an all-day festival of friendship and good times, a sequel to the success of last year's festival.
I'll be honest -- I really don't know too much about this YouTube clip, but here's what I do know: It's 21 seconds long, it's apparently for something called "Debit Mastercard Priceless Music Series," and ...HOLY SHIT IT'S A KITTEN METAL BAND PLAYING A CATIO AND TRASHING THE STAGE OMFG AHHHH RWTY GR^THf576y 6hvxcrt 6y67ujt gdf6yh #%&#$#@$$^
In the steady march from the 12-inch square LP and the
7-inch single to the 5-inch CD booklet and, lastly, the 300x300 jpg, certain
effects no longer resonate in quite the same way. This week I found myself
dwelling on the space, clarity, and immediacy achieved by simple, uncluttered
design that maximizes impact by minimizing graphics.
This past Wednesday at the OFF WITH THEIR HEADS/DEAD TO ME/THE HOLY MESS/FAKE BOYS show, I was reminded why some punks are there to celebrate solidarity and positive cultural change, and some are only there to get belligerent and hurt people.
First of all, if you were there on Wednesday, you probably are still holding a hand to your ear and asking people to repeat themselves, because this show was LOUD.
Earlier this week we invited former Mp3 of the Week'ers and current new favorite band THE NEW HIGHWAY HYMNAL up to the WFNX studio to perform live on The Breakfast Show. The psych rock quartet packed into a side room st the ungodly hour of 7am, blasted out a few jams and talked about their gig this weekend at DEEP HEAVEN NOW IV
Hey look -- HO-AG is back, with a bittersweet show next month at Great Scott that coincides with a farewell to our beloved KETMAN. So, uhhh, it's been a while dudes. What's good? Reports the 'Ag:
We’ve finally gotten it together enough to head back into the outside world again next month for a show with Ketman, Battle House and Banditas.
Check out these videos from the Newport Folk Festival last weekend.

Despite the torrential downpour that occurred yesterday evening from 6-7 PM, our pop-up show/video shoot with Mornin' Old Sport was awesome. We originally planned to gather in the Back Bay Fens, but because of the weather we made a last-minute move, ultimately ending up in some random tunnel on Mass Ave between a GNC and a post office.
