Luke Sweeney, Magic Trick, Miller Carr @ Amnesia

Meatbodies @ The Chapel
Higly recommended by TBB writer Will Reisman, “Meatbodies write fast, uncomplicated garage rock songs that feature plenty of vocal whelps, pulsating bass lines, and over-the-top cymbal crashes. In short, they kick ass.”

Trash Vampires, Impuritan @ The Hemlock
Find unholy excitement with experimental prog / punk / dark lord synth acts Trash Vampire and Impuritan.

Christmas Spectacular feat. A Charlie Brown Christmas @ Davies Symphony Hall
