Local Music

Pablo Picker isn’t all that different from any other local musician trying to make an honest living out of a creative drive. What separates Pablo from the rest of the pack, however, is an idea that allowed him to take his talents on the road– a US tour very different from most. More

Local Trio IAN Makes Noise in Boston Before Heading West
Local Music

Although it’s a common music writing trope, “hauntingly beautiful” is an apt way to describe the band IAN. Lead singer and guitarist Jilian Medford sweetly croons tales of the heart both longing and sad. In recordings, Medford’s vocals are layered with lots of reverb, but underneath she is a powerful singer. I got a chance to see her solo with just an electric guitar and a microphone (Elvis Costello style) in JP and learned this firsthand.

Keytar Bear Allegedly Attacked Again Last Night Near Faneuil Hall
Music

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.
