the inevitable drop in temperatures, this week's Fall Preview includes
a concert schedule that promises to keep things hot n' heavy all season
long. To accompany our selection of 24 sweat-inducing gigs, we've
assembled a sprawling Spotify playlist -- and it might actually be the
most eclectic mixtape ever made.
this would be deserving of a "SSIA" but my God, look at this video.
Yes, that video above which makes it seem like I'm about to embark on
the most extreme weekend of my life. The one that's only about
27-minutes and three screaming Juggalos shy of doubling as one of those Gathering infomercials that we here in the Phoenix office will never, ever

Sunday was weird. I mean, it felt like Boston -- crisp scarf-weather air, a loose, relaxed Sunday afternoon in the South End, watching the leaves change colors and casually carousing the SoWa market. But then, a block or two over, something very un-Boston-like went down: a free, all-ages, kinda-outdoors-ish concert by Neon Indian in the neighborhood's hollowed-out, towering open-air brick Power Station, presented by Levi's and Urban Outfitters as part of their "Secret Generator Series."
FRIDAY UPDATE: The word is out! The free Neon Indian show will go down Sunday at 540 Harrison Ave., at the Power Station -- which makes sense for the "Secret Generator Series." Doors open at 3pm. Woot!
So Levi's & Urban Outfitters this week unveiled two clues as to where, oh where, Sunday's free Neon Indian afternoon show will be held
Question of the day: How many generators does it take to power a secret chillwave show?
The answer arrives Sunday, Oct. 3 when Neon Indian hits Boston for a live performance at a top secret location. The gig is a collaborative effort between Levi's and Urban Outfitters, and because the show is powered by a generator, organizers are saying it could pop-up anywhere in the city.
A big boo-hiss for NEON INDIAN,
who announced today that they're cancelling their scheduled appearance
at GREAT SCOTT tomorrow night -- which was to have been one of the
bigger cards for this week's electronic-music festival TOGETHER BOSTON.
Instead, tomorrow night they'll be appearing on JIMMY FALLON. We're
trying to figure out what to call this -- a reverse McCain?
Scott gig has been re-scheduled for March 9, and all tickets will be
honored at the later date. That said, we highly recommend showing up at
Great Scott tomorrow night anyway, since the opening bands -- Portland,
Oregon's SOUTHERN BELLE and Boston's own MYSTERY ROAR
-- will be playing. After the jump: Mystery
Roar plays the Together Festival national anthem.
