Thanks to former WFNX DJ DUANE BRUCE, this one's now up on the interwebs: the fabled performance given by the pre-Grohl version of NIRVANA at once-and-future goth club MAN RAY in Cental Square, Cambridge, on April 18, 1990. Depending on who you ask, there were somewhere between 60 and 75 people in attendance.

It's impossible to not get lost in the hazy slow-motion visuals and lullaby pop twirl of LEISURE's new video for "Green Light." The Cambridge trio has teased their upcoming 7-inch of the same name (off San Francisco upstart label Crash Symbols) with this striking daydreamer clip, directed by drummer Sam Hamad.
Allston's Ringer Park never felt so pleasant and picturesque as on one late-summer Friday afternoon, when Team Phoenix Pop-Up Vids met up with local songwriter CALEB GROH. The young singer-guitarist stood high on a rock amid some trees, swirling folksy guitar plucks with his twangy Americana-tinged vocal rasp, for three entrancing songs: "Salt Water Gallivanter," "Bathsheba Blues," and "Quick-Tempered Conqueror."
Anonymous Boston/NYC production quartet BLACK LIGHT DINNER PARTY is now three-for-three. After turning heads in January 2010 with the butterfly-synths of "Older Together," then again in August over the electric, loose-fused Mp3 of the Week "Small Boxes," the mysterious four today dropped a fancy new "Gold Chain" via Neon Gold Records.
