Show Review: The Used at House of Blues 4.29.15

Unfortunately, I missed The Eeries, first openers for April 29th’s show at House of Blues, and only got to hear two songs from Marmozets, a meat-and-potatoes hard rock band whose singer, Becca Macintyre, impressively recalled Geddy Lee when she yelled.

Mat Kearney – Just Friends

Moldy | Stale | Edible | Fresh | Tasty!

  The past several years have seen Mat Kearney’s music evolve from his initial intimate coffee shop acoustic sound into a more pop-based sound laced with hints of hip hop. But despite this, he has maintained the same genuine lyrics and ear-catching hooks that draws listeners in, and continues to do so with the release of his fifth full-length album in late February Just Kids. Featuring several catchy, summery songs… continue reading
