CreaturoS Patch Together Older Influences For New Sounds on Latest Album
Local Music

CreaturoS are busy practicing at their space in Somerville when I stop by to take pictures. Their space, a tiny room in bassist Joe Marrett’s basement, was built by the old owner of the house to play drums in without bothering the neighbors. The quartet is working on a new groove that sounds like it could have been a Temptations song. Marrett is climbing a scale up and down his bass while drummer Dom Mariano pounds out a trudging 4/4 beat on the high hat and snare. Guitarists Spenser Gralla and Noah Bond play matching chords with an accentuated high chord on the fourth beat. For a second, you can imagine the guys in matching powder blue suits doing choreographed moves around one microphone at the Apollo. More

Yesterday morning, I woke with a text from a friend: “Keytar Bear is at Porter!” I rushed through my morning routine and headed to the Red Line hoping to catch everyone’s favorite mute street performer. But according to a Facebook post, Keytar Bear caught the wrong kind of attention last night, allegedly falling victim to an attempted stabbing and robbery near Faneuil Hall. More

Why We Should Forgive the Guy from Staind for Botching the National Anthem
Sports

For those who didn’t watch Game 5 of the World Series last night, singer Aaron Lewis, frontman of Springfield, MA band Staind, messed up the lyrics to our national anthem, singing “what so proudly we hailed, were so gallantly streaming” instead of “at the twilight’s last gleaming.” Naturally, journalists had a field day.

Krill Switching Things Up, Giving ‘More to Unpack’ on Upcoming Album
Local Music

For the past few years one of the most prevalent bands in Boston has been Chicago transplants, Krill. The three-piece has quickly become one of the most beloved acts in town. They will soon be coming out with a new, as of yet untitled, album and begin a tour this week that will take them up and down the east coast, to the midwest, and up to Canada. You can catch them tonight, September 29, at Great Scott before they head out, and you probably should. More
