Only two months remain until the kickoff of one of the East Coast’s most beloved music festivals. With debut global acts like Tame Impala and Travis Scott, as well as returning heavyweights, such as Odesza, the festival has enormous headliners. Despite the obvious draws, the undercard has a lot of hidden talent— here are some of our recommendations.
Richard D. James, better known as Aphex Twin, is widely recognized as an illusive electronic music titan. His most recent EP, Collapse, was released in typical Aphex style, with subtle and vague, yet distinguishable messages spotted across the globe. In similar fashion, an array of performance announcements have sprung up out of the blue, and regardless of coast, very few are left disappointed.
March 31st and April 2nd, Fleetwood Mac will be performing in Boston at the TD Garden. The original members, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, John and Christine McVie, and new arrivals Mike Campbell and Neil Finn will be performing The North American tour, “An Evening With Fleetwood Mac.” The band will travel to over 50 cities, Boston being the 25th.
We saw it last year, and like clockwork, the blue stage demands its presence to be known on the second day of Boston Calling. With acts ranging from ambient electronica to the grimiest modern day rap flows, there was a constant flow of fresh attendees to this isolated stage. This pushed our uncontrollable curiosity towards finding out how the day would progress in the area. Let's get into it!
With the festival only having debuted in 2013, this year's Boston Calling is truly a breathtaking sight to see. Thousands of fans gathered for the kickoff of our beloved music festival on the Harvard Athletics Stadium. The community is larger, the artist and food bill is larger, we just couldn't wait to jump right in. Here's what we saw from our first day on sight.
