Mellow Bravo @ Radio 10.13.2012

Mellow Bravo had the crowd in the palm of their hand during Radio’s first anniversary. Most of the time The Hand was tossing you wildly around the room with their soulfully electric hard rock. Every once in a while The Hand took pity on you and gave you a sobering number to take in. The rest of the time The Hand Of Mellow Bravo was passing you a beer.

Aloud @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 7.27.2012

If Parlour Bells got things steamy, Aloud got things sweaty! Talk about a band that leaves it all on stage. The music flows from every pore of their body. Aloud put on a powerhouse performance to cap off an amazing night of music at TT’s.

A huge thanks to Aloud, Sidewalk Driver, Dirty Wings (who came up from NY), Parlour Bells, Boston Band Crush and Daykamp Creative for a wonderful evening. We were so happy to be a part of it.

Cancer Killing Gemini @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 3.2.2012

Whoa. I don’t know what I was expecting from Cancer Killing Gemini, but it wasn’t this. The band has an early Nine Inch Nails kind of sound, but with more of a back beat. So cool. Their set was aggressive, desperate, invigorating and ultimately very compelling. I look forward to checking these guys out again.

I guess the band’s singer, Eric Michael Cohen, was responsible for putting together the lineup for the Big Queer Rock Show. The night was a benefit for BAGLY (Boston Alliance for Gay and Lesbian Youth). That makes me like Cancer Killing Gemini even more.
