The Vivs @ Precinct 6.22.2012

Here are The Vivs at Precinct. They sport a classic Boston indie sound that they’ve gussied up with some three part harmonies.* Not willing to settle for the embarrassment of riches that is three competent vocalists in one band, The Vivs invited Sophia Cacciola** up on stage for a particularly haunting number.

* In the grand Boston rock tradition, The Vivs even busted out a Kinks cover.

** Recent “Best Female Vocalist” winner in the Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll for her work with Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling.

John Powhida International Airport @ Radio 10.7.2011

John Powhida International Airport closed out opening night at Radio. J-Po brought along an entirely different flight crew since the last time I saw him.* One thing remains constant**; you can’t swing a funny bunny on stage at a JPX show without hitting a talented musician.

Also worth noting: Radio is awesome! Congrats to everyone who helped get the place off the ground (including owners Aimee McGrath and Josh Banville and booking agent Ashley Willard).

* Come to think of it, both Rudds shows I’ve seen this year had entirely different line-ups.

** You know, besides Mr. Powhida himself. So I guess two things. Oh, and the songs. Three things. Everything else changed, though. I think. I’m not so sure anymore.

The Rudds @ The Rosebud Bar 3.18.2011

What better band to close out Aimee McGrath’s birthday celebration at The Rosebud than The Rudds? This was a fun way to end the night.
