    The Susan Constant @ The Middle East Downstairs 7.5.2014

    When I caught The Susan Constant at TT’s a couple of weeks ago, I was impressed by the new songs they’re working on. While that’s still the case, their show at The Middle East Downstairs this past weekend reminded me that “Midwestern You” is a great set closer.

    Good golly, Parks, you are one fine musical group. I’d write a gushing review of your show at The Sinclair for WERS’ 65th Anniversary, but I’ve only got a couple of minutes. I’d rather spend them pre-ordering your record.

    The Field Effect @ The Sinclair 6.27.2014

    I’ve been lucky enough to see a bunch of great Field Effect shows. Some stand out for their overflowing passion. Sometimes they cover David Bowie with Tad McKitterick. Some are just plain fun. Friday night’s show at the Sinclair for WERS’ 65th Anniversary was noteworthy for the band’s confidence. The Field Effect were in control of the situation from the moment they took the stage. The band was great. The crowd sang along. A cassingle was released. I say The Field Effect are A-ok.
