The Ballroom Thieves release bluesy, politically charged single “Do Something”

It’s been exactly one year since the presidential inauguration, one endlessly stressful and tumultuous year at that. This is no coincidence to Boston’s three piece indie/folk rock outfit The Ballroom Thieves, who released their new single “Do Something”, a bluesy, simmering plea to the abhorrent administration that currently occupies the White House. The band detailed in a statement to Baeble Music their feelings behind the new song:

"Now a year has passed and it's apparent that the patience we once championed is wholly wasted on an egomaniacal president who cares for nothing but his own enrichment. As such, the meaning behind this song has shifted with the times and it now stands as a letter for you, to him, from us. Patience has become a virtue of yesterday, and time's up."

Weekend Warrior, January 19 - 21

MessyThe Deli Philly’s December 2017 Record of the Month and the latest album from Curtis Cooper, is being celebrated with a release show this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Cooper harnesses an ability to expose an emotional intensity that’s endearingly accessible, developing a well-conceived, melodic framework, while still tapping into a raw, rip-it-out-of-your-chest, guttural tone. In contrast, they can create a sense of stillness, instrumentally illuminating pensions with a dim, folk backdrop, allowing the weight of the words to wrap around you in a comforting manner that still sends chills up the spine. The Andy Molholt-led Laser Background will also be joining them tonight, instilling ease as waves of playful, candy-coated dreams wash over. And infusing joy and humor into their infectious bummer-pop, the duo of Coping Skills will be leading the way. – Michael Colavita

William Matheny brings his brand of Americana to The Basement (1/24)

Nashville's William Matheny released his debut Strange Constellations in February of last year to critical acclaim. His songwriting is strong, and his style comes across like an indie rocker gone americana, bridging the gap between Ben Folds, The Avett Brothers, and Ryan Adams. Now hard at work on the road, Matheny will be gracing The Basement stage Wednesday, January 24th alongside J.P. Harris, The Country Westerns, and Richie. The show begins at 9:00 PM, and tickets are $6 in advance, $8 at the door. If you haven't made it to a show yet in 2018 (or if you have), this is one you don't want to miss. Check out Matheny's track "Living Half To Death" below!

Big Destiny Aim High With Classic Sound

Phasing in shades of 70's black metal with a jam band-esque penchant for instrumental wormholes, Big Destiny is in the business of blowing some big boy smoke up your skirt. Singer, Declan Rory Murtagh, exhales a paint-peeling wail that consumes the rest of the band. Prog rock influences burst from every seam, while tasty bass lines and hook-filled guitars coalesce for an unencumbered romp. Big Destiny could be the wanton love child of Wolfmother, Dead Meadow, and a Yes cover band.  While the group has yet to officially release an EP, you can get your fill from their few tracks featured on Bandcamp.
