    Allston doesn't like to a lot of things: pick up trash, quiet down, not set cars on fire, etc., but most of all, they really don't like to go to bed. Then, PAJAMA PEOPLE descended upon the town with a lullaby just creepy enough to calm the party.

    "They Keep Saying," written by powercouple Will Lakritz and Lindsay Gordon, with the help of ABADABAD's Josh Northcutt and Tim Batchelor, made its debut yesterday.

    Last Saturday at Royale, EXITMUSIC and PHANTOGRAM put on an explosive performance of light and sound. Sometimes, there was more light than sound, but it didn't stop the faces of fans from lighting up with happiness.

    Exitmusic kept the evening slow and thoughtful, with moments of intense emotion that blew your hair back like that Maxell tape commercial

    Are we in a parallel universe where Allston bands are popular in Athens, Greece? Apparently so, because Greek band KEEP SHELLY IN ATHENS not only pressed their remix of Allston’s ABADABAD’s song “California Birds” onto their debut EP, but also performed the remix as a cover for the opening song of their set at Brighton Music Hall last Thursday.

    Hey everyone! It’s Sam the Intern, and I am back in my homeland after a rowdy summer in Boston. Why did I leave Boston? I honestly have no clue! But it’s partially because I went back to the University of New Hampshire to work on my degree in journalism. While I’m here, I’m acting as the Phoenix’s out-of-town correspondent, covering all the cool local New Hampshire shows and bands while I attempt to finish college.

    Chicago's SCATTERED TREES played a great show last night at Brighton Music Hall in support of PAUL DEMPSEY. The band's U2-but-not-nearly-as-shitty-as-U2 sound sent good vibes throughout the room. The soft and charming vocals of Nate Eisland and his smokin' hot wife Alissa dipped and soared with stunning dynamics.

    On a calm late-summer Tuesday night at T.T. The Bear’s, local lovlies THE FAGETTES, PAJAMA PEOPLE and their friends got noisy, but not quite noisy enough to drown out the wamp-wamps and wub-wubs of Throwed directly underneath the stage. The floor of TT’s was literally rumbling with dubstep, and the front doors were flooded with Throwed's VIP line overflowing far down Brookline Street into the crowd of smelly, jean jacket-clad patrons of TT’s.

    This past Wednesday at the OFF WITH THEIR HEADS/DEAD TO ME/THE HOLY MESS/FAKE BOYS show, I was reminded why some punks are there to celebrate solidarity and positive cultural change, and some are only there to get belligerent and hurt people.

    First of all, if you were there on Wednesday, you probably are still holding a hand to your ear and asking people to repeat themselves, because this show was LOUD.

    Now that this week's Monkey Issue has hit the streets, here’s a bonus banana courtesy of DARLING PET MUNKEE, a primate project from Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling's Michael J. Epstein and Sophia Cacciola and Cathy Capozzi of Axemunkee. In an extensive explication on Epstein’s blog, you can learn all about how the band name originated from a print ad for a mail-order squirrel monkey, which they also used as the album cover for the debut song.
