limousine – which I assume belongs to Ernie Boch, Jr. (nominee: Outstanding Blues Act of the Year) – idling
outside the Roxy last night was an appropriate metaphor for the 2008 Boston
Music Awards. Despite it being a quasi-posh invite-only event (albeit one that any
super fan could have easily penetrated), the gala didn’t reek of superficiality.
We've been waiting patiently for New Hampshire/Boston indie dudes WILD LIGHT to blow up -- it's kind of inevitable, and we're not just saying that because one of 'em used to be in a band with Win from Arcade Fire -- so we're stoked to hear that they've finally wrapped up the recording of their as-yet-untitled debut record for Almost Gold Recordings (Black Kids, Peter Bjorn and John, Does It Offend You Yeah?), which was produced by superproducer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith) and engineered by Dough Boehm (French Kicks, Katy Perry).
