Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling, May 2016: #6, The Vaccines

Yesterday we announced the return of our Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling feature, so once again, here is our list of who you need to be keeping an eye out for!

On our list so far: #7. Lizzo

Today we talk about our #6 pick, The Vaccines.

I heard murmurs and mumbles during the last two batches of
BC about them leaning a bit away from the rock and roll side, and I’ll admit that there were times where I could understand people’s concerns. But, people tend to get ahead of themselves. There are a few reasons later on in this list to solidify my point, and here’s where I’ll start it, with THE VACCINES. Like if The Ramones had a bratty nephew, the band plays loud, fast, and fun. With all of the talent we’ve been seeing over the last few years, it’s great to be around during the latest wave of the British Invasion.

Catch Them: Saturday, 3:00 pm
Check Out: “Wetsuit,” “Dream Lover,” “If You Wanna”
For fans of: The Strokes, Interpol, Hot Hot Heat
