Sleaford Mods live @ The Sinclair, Cambridge, MA [05-20-22]
LIVE MUSIC

It’s safe to say that the Sleaford Mods are in a category all of their own, and this makes them hard to describe. I know descriptions don’t matter but with this band, it’s kind of fun. Sleaford Mods are a rap group (I think) made up of two British guys whose music sounds like a cockney guy speed-talking about working-class problems over simplistic, but grooving, beats. It’s kind of punk rock in the sense that it reinterprets and simplifies rap...

Mannequin Pussy LIVE @ Sinclair, Cambridge, MA 10-27-21
LIVE MUSIC

Mannequin PussyLIVE @ Sinclair, Cambridge, MA10-27-21 One of the joys of being an avid music listener is getting absolutely blindsided by a band you’ve never heard before. I try never to pay too much attention when listening to new music, which is a perfect way to let an album kick your ass out of nowhere. That was the case in 2019 withy Mannequin Pussy’s Patience. It turns out I had actually heard of them before, having seen them play the...

Oh Sees Live September 13 @ Sinclair [Cambridge, MA]
LIVE MUSIC

There is no doubt that the Oh Sees (formerly Thee Oh Sees, and now actually just OCs) are an unstoppable force. Releasing what seems like their 40th album this year and another one already announced, it’s important sometimes to step back and assess what you’re getting with this band because their catalog can easily meld together into a metropolis of music. With all this published material, what would front man John Dwyer choose to highlight in a live set? The...

Jeff Rosenstock @ Sinclair (Cambridge, MA) 11-15-16
LIVE MUSIC

I can’t remember the last time I saw a mosh pit at a show. And it’s not because I’m old or anything (although by punk standards I’m ancient), because I go to shows all the time. It must be the way things go in Boston because I’ve seen my fair share of “No Moshing” signs since moving to the city. I’ve almost begun to think they were a thing of past, until I saw Jeff Rosenstock at the Sinclair, because...
