Boston Calling is here to put summer to rest with a bang. If you’ve kept an eye on us for the last few years, you know the deal. Let’s do this again, shall we? Here is our list of who you need to be keeping an eye out for!
The 80’s are alive and well thanks to George Lewis Jr.
Shadow. Getting back to business as usual after a terrifying bus
accident in April of 2014 that forced the band into hiatus, this year’s Eclipse is packed with plenty of
examples that show Lewis is back at full strength.
“To the Top” is a monster of a single, which was featured on
the Paper Towns soundtrack this
summer (and is an awesome addition to a workout playlist, in case you were
looking for something new to sweat to).
For fans of: Genesis, Bleachers, JamisonParker, For a taste, check out: “To the Top,” “Old Love / New Love,”
“Five Seconds” Catch them: Sunday, 4:05pm; Red Stage
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 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.”
For fans of: JamisonParker, the Smiths, MisterWives For a taste, check out: “I Wanna Get Better,” “Take Me Away,” “Shadow” When you can see them: Saturday, 3:55pm, Capital One Red Stage
