Greenhouse - New Single, Shoegazin' at Hard Luck Bar 01.13

This Toronto based shoegaze band Greenhouse has just dropped a brand new single. “Acetate” has a peaceful beginning with Sunday afternoon vibes during the 90’s indie rock inspired verse. The band fires up the instrumentation for the chorus but keep the droning vocals that adds a nice contrast to the music. If the Smashing Pumpkins went full shoegaze it might sound like Greenhouse. They play live in Toronto at Hard Luck Bar on January 13th along with Tijuana Taxi and the Spiracles. – Kris Gies





Speedy Ortiz headlining NYE bill at Allston’s Great Scott

For those of you scrambling to find something fun on New Year’s Eve, look no further than Allston’s Great Scott. Indie rock sweethearts Speedy Ortiz will ring in the New Year in the staple music venue, along with accompanying acts Ted Leo, Sammus, and Wendy Eisenberg. Speedy Ortiz, originally from Northampton, broke ground in 2015 with the critically heralded Foil Deer. Listen to the band’s newest single, “Screen Gem”, below. -Charley Ruddell





Boston pub-rockers The Dirty Truckers release new single “Like Him”

The Dirty Truckers have been putting out music since the early 2000s, performing their own brand of rowdy, beer soaked pub rock, reminiscent of The Replacements and other barroom mainstays. “Like Him”, their newest single since 2012, follows the Truckers template of high energy rock and roll, raspy vocal lines, and catchy hooks that anybody could sing, despite their BAC. “Like Him” is accompanied by another new Truckers song, the rootsy, mid-tempo Americana ballad, “Boston Wrangler”. Check out the tracks below. -Charley Ruddell





Explode int the new year with Explode Into Colors

Portland felt #blessed in its own little way when Explode Into Colors reunited last year. There've been bursts of excitement on their end by way of a couple shows here and there since their reunion, but the next two nights are where the real party is going to be at.

The New Year's Eve weekend is going to be lit with two nights of colorful sets by them, as presented by XRAY.fm, but the supporting acts of each night are sure to provide some turn up as well. The bill for the 12.30 show includes the experimental cumbia of Sávila and grooves spun by Daniela Karina. NYE itself is tinged with r&b and hip hop, with soulful vocals and dancing from vocal and producer collaborators Maarquii + Jvnitor and a guaranteed sultry set from songstress Blossom.

Tickets are still available, so add one or both of these shows to your NYE itenerary. 





A pre-NYE party with Ethereal Sea and more

It's pretty much a general consensus among everyone who paid attention to the excess of crap that happened this year that 2017 can't fuck right off. Seeing as New Year's Eve celebrations are a big deal in Portland there's plenty of opportunity to say that sayonara we all seek, but for New Year's Eve eve? There will be some "heavy music for heavy times," as advertised. 

At the Kenton Club on 12.30, the purveyors of such heaviness range in their sonic density without fail, each elevating their sounds from a foundation of psych. Eugene's Sacred Trees involve hypnotic swirls of sound hazed by unrefined airs of lo-fi garage, while Robots of the Ancient World offer straight up stoner rock. Menin gets a little bit harsher will doom laden riffs, and Ethereal Sea embody facets of each, melding stoner, doom, psych and garage into a pretty powerful force.

Get the pregame started a night early.
