Oh, hey Endation! What are you up to? Wait, is this a bad time? Are you in the middle of something? Uh oh. No need to get so worked up. Take deep breaths. You seem like you’ve got something you need to get off your chest. Careful! Don’t hurt yourself! I’ll just wait over here until you finish your set.
Well, here we are again. I’ve finally gotten through all of my photos from 2013. Time for another list-free, favorite-free, best-of-free recap. Just one photo from each of the 277 sets I caught during the year. In order.
So, how was the year that was? Pretty great. I saw a bunch of amazing shows. I probably missed even more. I had a lot of fun. Thanks for that. It’s impossible to put into words how vast and wonderful our music scene is here in Boston. That’s why I bring my camera with me. I hope you like the pictures.
Tallahassee have big, big hearts. The holiday show that they put on at The Sinclair was the kind of event that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. They even brought along Mellow Bravo, The Field Effect and Cask Mouse to make sure I was entertained all night. Thanks, Tallahassee. That was a great way to end 2013.
These are photos I took of The Field Effect at The Sinclair. The show was right before Christmas, so they played their cover of “Blue Christmas.” They were attired in some quickly discarded festive garb. Hmmm, what else. Oh, it was a Field Effect show, so there were a bunch of catchy tunes played with precision and exuberance. Doug did not fall down. He did jump. Adam pretty much destroyed the drum hardware. Nick successfully churned out guitar lines while avoiding whiplash and Annie actually managed to stay still for .001% of the time.* All in a night’s work for The Field Effect.
* This is a scientific calculation. Wait, no it isn’t.
For the second year in a row, OldJack’s Holiday Homage has brought a fantastic slate of local bands to the stage of The Sinclair. For their set (at their party), OldJack played all of the songs from their new What Is Home To You? album. What a wonderful night of music. Well done, OldJack.
