    Triple Thick kept the spirit of the Abbey Lounge alive at Sally O’Brien’s. I’ve had “All Banged Up” in my head ever since.

    2016 Boston Music Awards Nomination

    Hello. Johnny Anguish here. I haven’t had much to say lately. That’s just the way things are right now. In the middle of not saying much, a strange thing happened. Some folks out there still thought of me when it came time for this year’s Boston Music Awards nominations and my name ended up on the ballot for Best Live Music Photographer. That was certainly a pleasant surprise. Thank you, nominating-type people.

    If you’d like to cast a ballot for this year’s awards, you can do so over at the Boston Music Awards site. You can buy tickets for the December 8th awards show at the House of Blues, too. If that’s your thing. I’ll stop talking now. Here’s a photo…

    We are proud to premiere Eric Salt & The Electric City’s excellent “Excellent” video!

    We here at Daykamp Headquarters are super excited to share the new video from musical chameleons Eric Salt & The Electric City with you. It’s called “Excellent” and it is excellent. Of course, we expected nothing less from some of our favorite folks in town. The song finds Eric and the gang shifting musical gears at the drop of a dime. The colorful video directed by Daniel Jacobs is a visual love letter to all things Boston music. Watch for shoutouts to Q Division, John Powhida, Will Dailey, Hot Stove Cool Music, Tim Gearan, Daykamp Creative and a whole bunch of other people and events that make this town special. And hot air balloons. Lots of pretty hot air balloons. It’s impossible not to be happy when you are watching hot air balloons and listening to Eric Salt & The Electric City.

    The Easy Reasons – “Williamsburg” (2016)

    the easy reasons williamsburg
    The Easy Reasons
    “Williamsburg”
    2016

    The Easy Reason’s latest is a slow-burn cousin to their first. “Williamsburg” has the same live-on-the-edge sense of abandon as “Piece,” their debut single from a couple of years ago. Both songs rip when they want to, but experience finds the group a little darker, a little dirtier, a little more content to take their time. They’re deep in it on this one. Drivin’ to fast with your brakes cut loose. I’ll keep The Easy Reasons.
