Hellooooo again! We’re back for our third run with Boston Calling and we’re as excited as ever, so we’ve decided to bring back our “Seven Bands To See” feature! The lineup this time around is as great as it has ever been, and the weekend is shaping up to be the biggest one yet. So, here’s who to keep an eye out for!
Today we talk about our #4 pick, Bleachers.
Like the National, this won’t be Jack Antonoff’s first time around Boston Calling. Back in 2013, Antonoff and fun. closed out the festival’s inaugural run. This time around, Antonoff will be showcasing his 80’s-esque pop outfit Bleachers. Bursting with enough synth to make Molly Ringwald pogo, his debut Strange Desire is a contender for one of 2014’s best. Whether you’re going to come out and dance around or gaze at your shoes, remember one thing: “it’s not a fucking side project.”
