Our Best Picks

Township at the Rosebud (Somerville) on Friday & Saturday: Like Charles Foster Kane, Township looks to make Rosebud an everlasting memory with a CD release party for their new album, Vol. 1, and weekend residence in Somerville. Admission is just $10 for one Boston’s best bands. Brownboot opens Friday’s show while Ryan Fitzsimmons will play Saturday.

BMS All Ages Showcase at the Middle East Upstairs on Saturday Afternoon: We have another great showcase of local talent for you guys with a stellar lineup that includes Jon Robert, Mindwalk Blvd., Fendline, and Another Option. Start your day off right with this afternoon show for only $10. 

Our Music Picks

George Clinton at the House of Blues
: Dr. Funkenstein himself makes another welcome stop in the Boston area. We don’t know what it is about Clinton, but when he comes around everything is much more colorful… oh right, it’s just his hair. Make your funk the P-Funk for $29.

Further at the Mullins Center (Amherst): How do you tell the difference between a Deadhead and a UMass Amherst student? The Deadheads aren’t as stoned… Both will surely be in attendance for this show as Phil Lesh and Bob Weir join forces once again as Further. Tickets are still available and range in price from $37.50 to $47.50.
Sex! and Re-Up at Olivers Nightclub: Hometown groups supporting a hometown cause: Sex! and Re-Up will be bustin’ out their hits for Bottom Line, a charity that helps underprivileged Boston children get an education. Tickets are $10 for a bill that also includes Ok Capatin, John McClaine, and Green Street.

The Honors and The Luxury at TT the Bear’s Place: The Honors and The Luxury can both fill a room themselves, which means you better get there early if you want to get through the door. Tickets are $10 and also get you in for Philly-based rock outfits Jealousy Curve and Conservative Man.
Ad Frank & The Fast Easy Women and The Motion Sick at the Middle East Upstairs: Speaking of two bands that can fill a room- you can see The Motion Sick and Ad Frank just around the corner. The Fatal Flaw, Golden Bloom and Akudama round out this bill. Tickets are $10.


Los Amigos Invisibles at the Paradise Rock Club: Wallflowers be warned: These Venezuelans play a Latin take on disco and funk. If that doesn’t sound like an awesome blend to you then you’re probably not the type with two left feet. Tickets are $18.

Rubblebucket Orchestra at the Middle East Upstairs: One of the best live acts our fine city has to offer. You wallflowers should probably stay away from this one as well, though. Tickets are $12 and also get you in for  The Macrotones and the Organic Sound Project.
David Garrett at the Berklee Performance Center: Wanna be wowed this weekend? Hear David Garrett play the violin and it’s guaranteed. Tickets are $40.


New Found Glory, Saves The Day, Hellogoodbye at the House of Blues: You’ll definitely be hearing some fresh music at this show with New Found Glory recently releasing a new album and Saves The Day with a new one on the way. Don’t worry, we’re sure NFG will bust out a few of their famous covers as well. Tickets are still available and rang in price from $19.99 and $29.99

Trevor Hall at Harpers Ferry: Hall would probably fit in better in Cambridge but anywhere he wants to play in Boston is fine with us. The South Carolina native hits the hub to support his 2009 self-titled release. Tickets are $12. Jer Coons opens.

The Disco Biscuits at the Capital Center (Concord, NH): A bit of a random venue but when the Disco Biscuits are jamming up north we know we have to spread the word. Tickets are $35. They’ll also play Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence on Friday.
