Welcome to the Ghost Host edition of the Boston Accents playlist recap! As you may or may not know, I landed my dumb ass in the hospital earlier this week, and was discharged around 4pm this afternoon. Doctors told me I needed to stay in bed a few days after release, so to keep the BOSTON ACCENTS momentum alive, we decided to load up the setlist with nominated songs from this year's BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS, which were announced on Tuesday (pre-hospital, bro).
Boston Phoenix music editor and WFNX "Boston Accents" host MICHAEL MAROTTA couldn't make it into the studio tonight, so he's running the show by remote control and live-chatting below. See you at 8 p.m. sharp.
Another episode of BOSTON ACCENTS is in the books, we opened with some neon pop bangers, got our rock and roll on, dipped into the gritty garage circles, danced with street punk, and closed out with a house track. Z'how it goes on the BA, every Sunday night from 8 to 10pm on WFNX 101.7 FM and wfnx.com. Listen up, get down.
We started tonight's show with recognition of MIKEY WELSH, former Weezer bassist and longtime Boston rock and art scene veteran who died unexpectedly this weekend in Chicago. He was 40 years old. Boston Accents poured one out, and dedicated the first four songs of tonight's show to his memory and legacy.
Here's tonight's Boston Accents playlist. Not shown: my rant about the stupid two-week club rule, me stumbling like fuck over the name of the new Wheat song, and me dancing around the WFNX studio like an idiot to Conservative Man. Hang out with me next week, Sunday night from 8 to 10pm streaming live on wfnx.com or at 101.
Here is tonight's Boston Accents playlist, and it's a fucking doozy. We kicked it off with a double shot of THE FAUX, then rolled back to the early-'00s for some post-millennial garage rock ruckus, gave some love to the Granite State, and debuted a brand new STEREO TELESCOPE remix from DJ DIE YOUNG, which got finished roughly 16 minutes before I entered it into the WFNX library.
Here's the playlist from tonight's show, kicking off with a bit of a dance party tip before cruising through new jams from War Presidents, Water Moccasins, the Bynars, New Highway Hymnal, Vanzetti and a few we debuted last week, like hott jams from Viva Viva and Township. Hang with us next Sunday at 8pm only on WFNX.
Here's tonight's BOSTON ACCENTS playlist, complete with show notes, band links, and my usual ragtime blah-blah-blahs. Listen in every Sunday night from 8 to 10pm at 101.7 FM or online at wfnx.com. This week we debuted a fuckton of dope new jams, and showed some love to Bostonians who bounced to Brooklyn as a nod to today's 10th anniversary of Sept.
It's a Labor Day edition of Boston Accents -- and the first one with me in the pilot seat. Woo! Tune in to WFNX 101.7 FM every Sunday night for the best in New England-bred rock and pop, as well as local show news, notes, and my usual ragtime bullshit sessions.
Fiends in Human Shape - "Death Won’t Find You," off debut EP We Will Burn The Very Heavens; performing live at T.

Oh hey it's here! After multiple bulletins, carefully-placed teasers, a few print ads, a couple of online announcements, many tweets, and a few weeks of co-hosting duties with the great Adam 12, BOSTON ACCENTS re-launches this Sunday night at 8 pm on WFNX 101.
Last night's Boston Accents loval music show was divided into two parts: the first hour featuring Halloween-appropriate songs, and the last 60 minutes dedicated to the late Billy Ruane, playing an hour of his favorite New England-based performers past and present. Host Dave Duncan also took calls from Aly Spaltro (Lady Lamb The Beekeeper), Sean Slade
(Fort Apache) and Mike Gill (Murder Mile & videographer), who shared their Ruane stories and memories live on air.
