As continue our Flashback February posts this week, we’ve realized that…well…it’s no longer February. This last month flew by and we easily lost track of time. That being said, we’re just going to pretend that it’s February through the end of this week and share with you the remaining sessions we’ve got lined up for you! Let’s jump in, shall we?
We caught up with Grammy-nominated Seth Glier, right before the release of his album, Birds. A personal project for Glier which was written after the passing of his brother, we were treated with a captivating acoustic version of “I’m Still Looking.” Give it a spin below!
The Boston Calling
folks couldn’t get Beyoncé this year, so they booked Beck instead. (Not really.)
It deserves to be mentioned that Beck’s 12th (12TH!)
album brought home the Grammy for Album of the Year this year, but it also isn’t as big of an achievement as
it sounds, since the man has been winning Grammys almost as long as I’ve been
alive. I sincerely doubt you have better Friday night plans.
For fans of: The Arcade Fire, BASTILLE, Modest Mouse For a taste, check out: “E-Pro,” “Blue Moon,” “Modern Guilt” (And “Loser,”
obviously) Catch them: Friday, 9:15, JetBlue Stage

Nashville based band, COIN, have announced that they will be releasing their self-titled debut album in June via StarTime International. The album was produced by Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent, Emmylou Harris) who was just nominated for a 2015 Grammy as “Producer of the Year, Non-Classical.” Needless to say, this album is sure to be a hit and we’re already loving their newest single, “Run,” which you can listen to here.
Below you can find the single artwork and a list of their upcoming tour dates with Grizfolk!
Tour Dates: 1.29 – Chicago, IL @ Schuba’s 2.2 – Ann Arbor, MI @ Blind Pig 2.4 – Washington, DC @ Black Cat Backstage 2.5 – Philadelphia, PA @ World Café Live 2.8 – Boston, MA @ Middle East Upstairs 2.9 – Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory
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!
Like I mentioned a bit earlier, there were a handful of artists who dominated 2013. Earning four Grammy nominations (and two wins) at 17, Lorde had a pretty decent year. The success of “Royals” placed her in the spotlight, but it’s the undeniable charm and ambiance throughout the rest of her Pure Heroine that makes her special. Later this year, she will be curating the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, as well as releasing a new single for the movie and working on her follow-up album. When she takes the stage in Boston for the second time this year (after a sold-out show at The Orpheum in May), there’s no doubt she’ll captivate.
For fans of: Grimes, Tegan & Sara, Lana Del Rey For a taste, check out: “Ribs,” “A World Alone,” “Team” When you can see them: Saturday, 8:15pm, Capital One Red Stage
You know that song, “Me and My Broken Heart,” that’s constantly on the radio? The song that you sing along to every single time and can never get it out of your head? The song that just passed 10 million views on its music video? That song is by the amazing British band, Rixton, who are receiving tons and tons of love – and it’s very well deserved (The band is also on tour – check out those dates here)!
We’ve teamed up with the band to do a giveaway for their EP, also titled Me and My Broken Heart!
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.
As the headliner of Day One, Vampire Weekend is an obvious choice to watch. Grammy-nominated and in possession of a die-hard fan base, the New York City four-piece is never one to disappoint. Fresh off of the release of their newest album, May’s Modern Vampires of the City, their set is bound to impress anyone watching, whether an old fan or a first-timer.
For a taste, listen to: “Diane Young” For fans of: Bright Eyes, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie Set time: 9/7, 9:00pm, Blue Stage
