Here’s Bong Wish. I’d tell you more, but I wouldn’t be able to describe the experience better than Sleazegrinder. Go read his profile of the band in The Noise and then you can check out these photos.
28 Degrees Taurus dreamed up a dark, shimmering psych-pop set for Fuzzstival.
I hit up a Park Slug show at O’Brien’s Saturday night and was greeted with a nice surprise. Unbeknownst to me, Bong Wish was kicking off the night with a quick set of subversively catchy tunes. This fortuitous turn of events happened mere days after I was checking out the band’s too-good-not-to-be-a-theme-song theme song. Lucky me.
Jed Gottlieb is quick to shine a spotlight on local bands over at The Boston Herald. He knows what’s what. For this night at Redstar Union, Jed gathered up three acts with a penchant for writing a great pop hook. He’ll get no argument from me about his first pick. Slowdim’s debut record will certainly be on the Top 10 Albums Of 2013 list that I won’t make. These are some of the best songs in town.
Slowdim played their sometimes-spacey-sometimes-jangly pop tunes for a steadily growing crowd at The Middle East Upstairs. The band draw equally from the familiar and the adventurous, forming songs that draw you in and hold your interest. Their set was part of The Susan Constant’s EP release show.
