Cheap Seats is the Best Variety Show in Boston, Maybe Anywhere

Years ago, I realized concerts had gotten boring. Why not start a vaudevillian variety show with headliners like Weezer and openers like a dancing horse? In late 2012, Erich Haygun did just that (minus the animal acts) and I've gone to many Cheap Seats since.

The show is completely inclusive, with acts ranging from Guerilla Toss to superhuman dancers to teenage poets to the indescribably hilarious Ben Hersey, and it's always pay-what-you-want. And, somehow, even the average act at Cheap Seats beats most things you'd see at The Sinclair.

Cheap Seats happens January 16th at the YMCA in Central Square.

Cool Ghouls Gear Up to Release New Album + Drop New Single

The incredibly popular San Francisco based band, Cool Ghouls is gearing up to release their new album, A Swirling Fire Burning Through The Rye which is due out on November 11th on Empty Cellar Records.

You have the opportunity to hear a new single from the album below. The quintessential CG sound resonates through their new track, The Mile, which is catchy but sounds a bit more mature than their earlier work. Although they still grasp tones and styles from The Beatles, there is a bit more of a serious tone to the song that shows that the band has evolved, which hopefully invokes anticipation for their upcoming album. We are intrigued for sure.

Give The Mile a listen. It’s a great song.

Tocca's Sound Has Us Gazing Into Space

Risa Elledge and William Wong are Tocca, a genre-defying project unafraid of sharing premature works; unmastered and raw, their songs promise much potential. Elledge's vocals are undoubtedly enticing and easy on the ears. Accompanied by bright and uplifting guitar riffs on "What You Need to Get By", her slight husk and powerful emotional projections seem effortless. Each track is completely different from the next, and yet flows seamlessly due to Elledge's consistently distinct and breathy vocals. Stream "What You Need To Get By" below. -Rebecca Glandon

 

Recommended Show: THE WOLF At Empire Control Room

Indie garage-rock band, THE WOLF, leaves no room for thoughts. Their most recent release, RIDE, feels like being submerged in vibration. Combining catchy hooks with a psychedelic charm, howling vocals which offer fuzzy melodies, we can't help but hum along. If you're looking for a more toned down version of The Orwells, take a listen. You can catch THE WOLF at the Mellowfest pre-party tomorrow at Empire Control Room & Garage with Slow Motion Rider, Darwin's Flinches and more!  -Rebecca Blandon
