Upcoming Local Concerts

The Berkshires can feel limiting at times for concert options, but this Fall MASS MoCA is bringing good shows that wont require a trip to Albany or Northampton. Here is a preview of the artists I’m most excited about.

October 12 – Plume Giant
I’m new to the Brooklyn band Plume Giant, but they have played alongside great artists like Kishi Bashi. Their sound is sometimes strange but often pleasant, and they have an aesthetic to match this. This promises to be a fun show. You can hear their single Wait it Out below.

October 19 – Talib Kweli
Talib Kweli has been putting out consistently good music since his 1998 collaboration with Mos Def, Black Star. His concert is definitely worth going to. Check out his new song 5am in Brooklyn below

November 9 – Javelin
I started listening to Javelin, signed to Luaka Bop records, over the summer. The song Airfield off their album Hi Beams gives a good sense of Javelin’s generally upbeat and fun sound.

College Radio Day!

This seems like a good song to start the day off, don’t you think? A classic from 1974 about radio in Massachusetts! Hey, that’s WCFM!
