Boston Calling September 2014 in 500 Words

Twice a year Boston receives a gift.  The music gods shine down on the city and give it two three-day festivals.  Everyone from Lorde to Volcano Choir was there, creating an unforgettable weekend for the music enthusiasts in and around Boston.

Friday consisted of three bands, Future Islands, Neutral Milk Hotel, and The National.  The crowds were excited, the volunteers were happy and patient, the beer was flowing, and the food was plentiful.  The festival kicked off with no problems.

The next day Sonicbids Winner, Clifflight, S. Carey, Sky Ferreira, Bleachers, The Hold Steady, Volcano Choir, Girl Talk, Lorde, and Childish Gambino were all scheduled to play.  Unfortunately, the music gods got upset with Boston, creating one of the most intense storms to pass over the city in a while.  It evacuated everyone in the (outside) venue to surrounding restaurants, retail stores, and even parking garages.  People got sent into a parking garages with policemen lining the doors making sure everyone stayed inside.  The wait was about two hours and finally word got out that everyone could return.  When the venue was cleared and ready to let the festival goers back in, it was announced that Lorde would play next, cancelling Volcano Choir and Girl Talk.  Lorde opened the show back up thanking the fans for waiting.  She did her classic dance moves, stayed connected with the audience, and was clearly happy to be experiencing Boston with her fans.  Childish Gambino came on next, bringing energy into the crowd.  He had people who did not even know his music grooving down, his stage presence was fantastic, jumping all around the stage and clearly having a ball performing.

The third day was a typical September day.  The sun was out, (and stayed out all day), the festival attendants were dancing around the venue, and not one raindrop was shed, (shedding of tears by diehard fans? That is another story).  There was music all afternoon, but the band that stood out towards the end was Spoon.  There were conversations going on all around about how badly everyone has wanted to see them live, and finally they came out.  They were calm, playing some of their new stuff but also pleasing the crowd with their old hits.  The other act Sunday that took the crowd by storm was Nas and The Roots.  The Roots left the set for The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and came to play Boston for a night.  Nas and The Roots vibed together fantastically, sharing the stage equally and clearly enjoying themselves.

One of the most important aspects of a concert is the stage presence of the performers.  The engaging performances are the ones that really stand out, and eventually make the artist or band more successful.  Twenty One Pilots went into the crowd to perform, The 1975 brought a fan on stage, and Lorde talked to the audience like they were her friends.  It is important for the artists to talk to the audience and be present in the moment.  Explaining the origins of the songs, making connections with the people… All of those parts of performing are what makes or breaks the show.

Overall, the weekend was a success.  There was adventure in regards to the nasty thunderstorm, great food venders, amazingly helpful volunteers, and finally of course, phenomenal musical acts.  Each band was different and made the weekend the best it could have possibly been.

PureVolume Premiere Shadow Of Whales’ “Pretenders”

PureVolume has premiered Shadow Of Whales’ brand new track, “Pretenders,” quoting the band as saying that, “‘Pretenders’ is about trust. Taking each other for a ride of emotion. Hearing things you didn’t want to hear. Telling each other everything is ok when it’s really not. This song is kind of a recap on a relationship I had in the past. Not ever wanting to relive that situation.” Check out the new track HERE. For fans of: The Killers, Franz Ferdinand.
