Jess and Holly from Lucius sat down with Adam 12 before their Boston Calling set on Sunday. We’re live from City Hall Plaza all weekend long, powered by Xfinity.
This past week, it was announced that Seth Meyers’ show will only feature two musical performances a week. This makes some sense, as Fallon’s show is very music heavy, and Letterman routinely freaks out over certain musical performances as well. It doesn’t make a ton of sense though, seeing as music has always been an essential part of late night television. Hopefully the show will find other ways to make up for its musical void. Here’s what’s going on on late night TV this week. More
It’s cool if you weren’t able to score tickets to fast sellers like Phantogram and King Krule. Not only are there a bunch of good local shows this weekend, but there’s an award ceremony dedicated to Boston music that features some local performances, as well.
Lucius, a Brooklyn-based ode to everything that was right about the ’60s, is the latest indie band to preoccupy the tip of everyone’s tongue. When critics weren’t writhing over its debut album, they were shamelessly panting for its release. “Wildewoman” was worth the hype and then some, and the band made a sizable impression at Boston Calling.

One infallible truth remains at the close of 2013’s music festival season: Geography’s a bitch. Events like South by Southwest or CMJ Music Marathon, which started last week in New York City and wrapped on Saturday, drive this point home at 80 miles per hour, as rushing to every set you want to see results in some maniacal game of venue hopscotch into the wee hours of the morning on a Wednesday. It’s tough and gets better with practice, but at the end of the day, a successful CMJ experience is one where you were able to discover new favorite bands while revisiting your favorites, where you walk away with an iPhone full of notes to yourself, lyrics you found inspiring, or a new act from Australia you’ll keep tabs on until they roll through the US again. These are a few of our favorite things from CMJ 2013, and they were well worth lapping between Brooklyn and lower Manhattan over the course of the past few long, loud days. More
