Class of 2011: Eleven Boston bands to ring in the New Year

The bands you should be listening to this year
By MICHAEL MAROTTA  |  January 6, 2011


YOUNG ADULTS | We've already spilled plenty of ink across the collective foreheads of Allston punk trio Young Adults, but their Black Hole 12-inch release party in November remains a 2010 highlight — a Great Scott powder keg that involved the aforementioned Doomstar!, Girlfriends, and Earthquake Party. Now, it's time to take the show on the road, and if their Czech Republic–based label Amdiscs ever helps get them across the Atlantic, or even outside the I-495 belt, look the fuck out. Young Adults carry the Boston torch of art-damaged, shout-it-out, blitzkrieg punk, tracing a lineage from Mission of Burma to Protokoll and planting it right in the middle of Harvard and Brighton Avenues. In a city of dissimilar tastes, they sound just like what our city should sound like.

NEXT SHOW • January 16 @ Great Scott, Allston
