I want to emphasize that I 100% vouch for all of these shows. This is not nearly an exhaustive list of the shows going on in Boston, but I guarantee that you will hear some great music at any of these places.
Listen, I know you’re already exhausted from seeing some great live music all this week. tUnE-YarDs and Prussia rocked the house at Paradise on Wednesday; Yuck, Mean Creek, and Jim Ward gave us a blistering show ranging from alt-country to garage pop at TT’s on Thursday; and The Hush Now gave us a fun night of indie-pop at the enticingly sketchy new venue, Foundry 24.
And I know that y’all are all still trying to decide whether to see Girls or Stephen Malkmus tonight, and you’re pouring over last weeks list of concerts. But it’s time to start prepping for next weeks straight-pimpin’ lineup.
