The Town and The City Festival Is Fast Approaching!

Composed of mostly Boston-area artists, the lineup contains both well-known and up-and-coming artists. Spread across venues in downtown Lowell, there are artists that appeal to a myriad of tastes.

Go See Girls Guns And Glory Now!

I was quite excited for the Girls Guns and Glory show at The Sinclair recently. Not only is this one of my favorite bands, but Julie Rhodes – another favorite – opened the show!

Here Is A New Face On The Soul/Blues Scene

There is a new, powerful voice on the rise in both the Boston and national soul and blues scenes and her name is Julie Rhodes. I have been privileged to see her twice in the past month at Atwood’s Tavern, but she will not be playing tiny venues for much longer.

This review combines both shows, especially since the lighting (and thus the photos) was better the first time I saw Julie.
