Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling: #5, The 1975

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!

On our list so far: #7. Sonicbids Winner/Gentlemen Hall, #6. The National

Today we talk about our #5 pick, The 1975.


Not many acts had the breakout year last year that the 1975 did (maybe one or two, but we’ll get there later). After a huge year featuring a breakout debut album that took people by storm, the buzz surrounding this band has been on the rise for months and continues to grow. Their live show is one that shows they’re more than a good album, and it shouldn’t be skipped.

For fans of: Bastille, The Neighbourhood, The Kooks
For a taste, check out: “The City,” “Fallingforyou,” “Chocolate”
When you can see them: Sunday, 6:05pm, Capital One Red Stage
