Editor's note: Have you seen the new BODEGA GIRLS video? Well hot damn. The clip for "Surf's Up America" has been making the rounds for a few weeks now, so instead of just re-posting it we decided to reach out to one of the producers, Loroto's P. Nick Curran (also a Phoenix contributor, and Loroto partner with Addison Post, the video's director), to break down his vision and approach and give us an inside look into the production of the video.
Fresh off sharing the stage with the Kills and Black Bananas over the weekend at New York City’s Converse City Carnage, VIVA VIVA are back in town to shoot a “Dead In Yr Tracks” music video tomorrow night at the Middlesex Lounge’s Swerve IV dance party.
The band of rock and roll bandits recorded four tracks over two days last September at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studio, and the results will be released next month as a gate-fold double 7-inch off Boston indie label Fort Point Recordings
The night before they dropped comeback EP Ready at the Middle East in Cambridge, Boston rock dudes LETTERDAY swung by the Converse store at 348 Newbury St Friday night for an acoustic session. The band stripped down their normally anthemic sound to fit neatly within the second-floor of the Back Bay retail hub, giving the crowd a solid half-hour set of new material and old, some even dating back to their all-ages suburban shows of several years ago.
After a year of reflection, now comes the resurrection for Boston pop-rock darlings LETTERDAY. Back from extended hiatus with a fine-tuned lineup, a sharper perspective, and a fresh batch of songs from this already well-oiled rock and roll machine, Letterday last month announced their comeback with “Don’t Go,” the first single off towering new record Ready.
Last night in the Back Bay, rising roots sextet KINGSLEY FLOOD kicked off our new live music series at Converse, which brings in the Phoenix's Mp3 of the Week acts to the second floor of the lifestyle apparel's 348 Newbury Street shop.
The ridiculous rain outside seemed all too appropriate for launching a series with a band that features "flood" in their moniker, but undeterred, the Kingsleys belted out a 30-minute urban Americana set that served as a warm-up for their three-night record-release party stand at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, which runs tonight through Saturday
“Uptown’s gonna go downtown tonight!” It’s equally a plea, a promise, and warning from vocalist Naseem Khuri on “Black Boots,” the latest master folk-ing racket from Americana sextet KINGSLEY FLOOD. It’s also appropriate for the launch of the Phoenix’s new partnership with Converse, which will bring Boston artists featured in this space to 348 Newbury St for live in-store performances.
