With Boston Calling approaching, we here at RadioBDC are preparing for three days of artist interviews, live broadcasts, and, most importantly, twenty-three stellar performances. While we gear up for the fifth installment of Boston Calling, we want to make sure you are fully prepared and can enjoy the festival to the fullest.

We’ve put together a playlist to get you pumped for Sharon Van Etten‘s Friday night performance at City Hall Plaza. If the festival will be your first introduction to her music, the following is a great way to get excited for her set, while also introducing you to other like-minded artists. If you’re a current Sharon Van Etten fan, it’s guaranteed to be a jackpot of bands you’ll love.

When you’ve spun through this, be sure peruse our playlist featuring a song from each of the 23 acts, created by the lovely Adam 12.
