Boston Concert Roundup [6/13 - 6/19]

Hopefully you weren't like me and completely forgot about Cults and Guards playing at Brighton Music Hall last night. Luckily the rest of this week brings some equally exciting concerts to town. Here are my weekly picks, at least one concert for every night of the week. For venue information you can find extensive linkage here. Please double check the information provided here, shows are subject to changes and cancellations.

Monday, June 13th
Architecture in Helsinki with Hooray For Earth at Paradise Rock Club
$20 / doors at 7pm
MP3: Architecture in Helsinki - Contact High
MP3: Hooray for Earth - No Love
Architecture in Helsinki is a long time favorite indie band of mine whose sound is constantly changing, and Hooray For Earth just released their latest LP, 'True Loves'. For a Monday night, it doesn't get much better.

Tuesday, June 14th 
Dodos with Gauntlet Hair at Paradise Rock Club
$15 / doors at 7pm
MP3: Dodos - Don't Stop

Wednesday, June 15th
Boston Phoenix "Best Music" Awards Party @ Brighton Music Hall
Free with RSVP / doors at 7pm
Bands: Bodega Girls, Freezepop, Moe Pope, and Mean Creek
 She's Into Black Guys by Bodega Girls

Thursday, June 16th
Antlers with Little Scream @ Paradise Rock Club
$15 / Doors at 8pm

Pearl and the Beard with Chris Bathgate @ TT the bears
I just saw Pearl and the Beard a month ago but I'm picking this over Antlers because I am infatuated with Chris Bathgate's latest album Salt Year, it's a must listen. Important note: Bathgate is currently not listed on TT's website but his own website says he'll be playing at 8pm and 11pm. I don't know what to believe.

Friday, June 17th 
Jeremy Messersmith and Keegan DeWitt @ TT the bears
$10/ Starts at 9:30pm
MP3: Jeremy Messersmith - Franklin Avenue
MP3: Keegan DeWitt - Two Hearts (Tallest Trees Remix)

Eli "Paperboy" Reed and Jenny Dee @ Middle East Downstairs
$12 advance/ $15 at doors / doors at 8pm

Saturday, June 18th
Kingsley Flood and McAlister Drive @ Great Scott
$10 / 9pm

Sunday, June 19th
David Bazan and S. Carey @ TT the Bears
$15/ Starts at 9pm
MP3: S. Carey - In The Dirt

Givers and Pepper Rabbit @ Middle East Downstairs
$12/ doors at 8pm
MP3: Givers - Up, Up, Up
This is the hardest decision you'll have to make all week. Four great bands spread out between two shows, how do you choose? I've seen Pepper Rabbit three times but I don't mind seeing them again especially because the debut Givers' album sounds like summer. But on the other hand (and right next door) you have two bands that make for a perfect Sunday night line up.

  1. Nice city, a lot of culture, good food, friendly people. I loved Helsinki. It's in the center but the street is not noisy so you can have a comfortable rest. Hope you updated this blog for the whole month.
