July brings a solid list of rock shows — and one good electronic gig — full of intelligent dance music. You should trudge through the humidity and lightning to get to one of these shows. I’d particularly recommend Gary War.
June has a couple shows that venture into the far reaches of sound. Make sure to go to the Baczkowski, Nace, Corsano, Kelley show at Spectacle in Jamaica Plain, MA.
May brings a solid selection of shows. The highlights are definitely Pole, Black Dice and Grass Widow. Have fun out there!
April brings the Together Electronic Music Festival. I’ve listed my highlights.
The first in a series of Fuse podcasts. This inaugural (and experimental) outing samples the best in underground music.
March brings a solid lineup of experimental music, including electronic and indie rock shows. The indisputable highlight of the month is Steve Reich at MIT.
Worth checking out in February: a few solid experimental shows.
The latter half of January brings several outstanding underground music shows to Boston.
MIT saves a December void of underground musical events by hosting Florian Hecker and Terry Riley.
There isn’t much going on in November. The highlights of the month are the Omar Souleyman and Felix Kubin shows, so try to make it to one of those.
