With Boston Calling just a week away, we’ve decided to make a list of seven bands you do not want to miss. Whether they’re a headliner or an opener, whether they’re hip-hop, dance, rock & roll, or something somewhere in the middle, there are a handful of sets that you’re definitely going to want to pencil into your schedule.
Yesterday, we posted our first band on the list, Bearstronaut – seen here!
Today, we move on to #6: Lucius
Self-classified as “indie/whatever,” this five-piece hailing from Brooklyn possesses a sound that perfectly captures the balance between somber and soulful, dreary and danceable. Fronted by dual female vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, be sure to listen for their infectious, gritty, and yet still somehow bubbly sound early on Day One. And don’t be surprised when their debut full-length album makes some noise this October.
For a taste, listen to: “Hey, Doreen”
For fans of: The Ting Tings, Tegan & Sara, Gin Wigmore
Set time: 9/7, 2pm, Red Stage
Check back tomorrow for our #5 band to watch!
