Gnarls Barkley + Hercules and Love Affair

Wilbur Theatre, August 6, 2008
To the cynic, the scene milling around in front of the sold-out Wilbur could merely have been proof of the power of a hit single.

Millionaires

Harpers Ferry, August 10, 2008
Millionaires played the kind of set I wish I’d see more of: high-energy, hit-filled, and mercifully short.

Free candlepin Mondays at the Milky Way
By 9 pm last Monday, the Milky Way’s seven lanes were thoroughly stuffed.

  July 30, 2008 at the Roxy
Spiritualized know how to bring their aural soundscapes alive in real time and space. Add strobe lights, psychedelic shapes, and an audience dancing as one and you have the perfect night out.

Spiritualized

Roxy, July 30, 2008
Like fellow studio-friendly trance band Portishead, Spiritualized know how to bring their aural soundscapes alive in real time and space.

Vetiver + Phosphorescent

Museum of Fine Arts, August 1, 2008
Houck looked nothing like Bonnie Prince Billy or the more emotionally tortured freak-folkies he’s usually lumped with.

(Probably) high society

'After Hours' at the Gardner Museum
The warm bodies and conversational hum provide séance juice for the ghostly presence of the mansion’s namesake.

Backed the f*** up

‘Rock The Bells’ 2008
I wasn’t the only one held back from “Rock the Bells” by fleets of ugly persons driving Chevy Avalanches.

A case of the Mondays

Icy Demons at Great Scott, July 27, 2008
Unless you’re, say, George Michael, summer Sunday-night shows can be rough on a band.

Late bloomer

George Michael at TD Banknorth Garden, July 27, 2008
Word came: “George Michael is in the building!” — and the place roared and squeed.

Oh, the humidity!

Hot times at ArtBeat 2008
Fleetingly delicious Olde Tyme slushies quickly melted into sticky Kool-Aid soup. The weekend-long ArtBeat festival was under way!

Fast and dirty

No Age at the Middle East Downstairs, July 14, 2008
Experienced live, No Age’s songs feel like quick jabs of noise penned for the type of careless, rebellious summers that exist only in movies like Dazed and Confused .

Idol hands

Mission Of Burma at Pitchfork Music Fest, Union Park, Chicago, July 18, 2008
The band, as always, sounded fantastic, especially if you’d been listening to the record all week in preparation.

Gift rap

Edu Leedz blows out the candles
Boston hip-hop promoter Edu Leedz celebrated his 29th birthday in carnal mediæval-king fashion. The only thing missing was a three-pound turkey leg for Leedz to gnaw on.

Intimacy issues

Perennials et al. at P.A.'s, July 10, 2008
Singer John Flax’s stage presence could have worked an audience 10 times as big; it was a shame to think their wick has only three weeks to burn.

Cambodian dance party!

Dengue Fever + Pistolera at the Museum of Fine Arts, July 9, 2008
Dengue Fever’s charms are so extreme that at first they might strike you as incongruous — like a chocolate-covered lobster.

Let it all hang out

Underbear at the Alley
It’s hard to feel too threatened by an IT administrator in SpongeBob boxers sipping a Long Island iced tea through a stir straw.
