Sports

Kevin Paul Dupont paused for a solid 2 seconds before telling me he liked my headline. I don’t believe him. But I stand by his analysis of the Lucic-Spooner-Pastrnak line. And his expectations for the Bruins moving forward into the playoffs. More

RadioBDC Sports: Celtics Push Toward Playoffs, But Still Have a Long Road Ahead
Sports

The last two Celtics games have been a tale of two teams: the transitioning Celtics that were blown out by the Clippers; the scrappy Celtics that handled the Hornets. I chatted with Jeremy Gottlieb of Boston.com Sports about how many of these exciting young players might still be around a year or two from now and the team’s playoffs chances for this season. More

Dissecting the Dark Years in Music Between the Alternative Boom and the Indie Revival
Nostalgia

Last week, Perry Eaton of BDCwire asked me to contribute to this piece on post-9/11 rock music. Today, we continued the conversation, widening the scope to that period in rock that followed the alternative boom of the early-to-mid 90s and preceded the indie rock bloom of the early-to-mid 00s. Then we tied it all in to the present-day, and the recent announcement of the Jay Z-backed streaming music service Tidal. More

Sports

And you thought the shiny, happy 2015 Sox would get through spring training without a bit of hullabaloo. Silly rabbit. Shane Victorino and David Ortiz both grabbed their fair share of press last week for comments they made.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Returns to Boston
Boston events

Seeing the Alvin Ailey company for the first time a decade and a half ago changed my perspective on modern dance and the arts. In the years since, I’ve tried to make it a point to see their productions whenever they come to town. I’m especially excited for this year’s run, as I had dancer, choreographer, and company veteran Matthew Rushing in studio to talk about the Alvin Ailey experience, life in dance, and ODETTA–his tribute to the legendary folk singer and civil rights activist Odetta Holmes. Click here for tickets and information, and click through to hear my chat with Matthew. More
