NEMO Boston Music Festival okay kids, the list is up for the NEMO Boston Music Festival. it's a little like the Midwest Music Summit, where a bajillion venues (30+) are offering up six gajillion bands (300 ish) over about four hours (3 days). blink, and you miss it. and a lot of people will.
unfortunately, since i'll be back at school, i won't be able to take full advantage of the awesomeness that is NEMO. but i can tell you that i'll be at what shows that i can, and some of the really fantastic acts include:
Be Your Own Pet
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
The Long Winters (!!!!)
Yo La Tengo
..and talk about completely not inclusive. the list is extremely long and is seen alphabetically here, and seen more inclusively at the event's myspace.
so. all of our loyaly Boston readers, i highly recommend climbing aboard this great opportunity to find local and obscure acts that you're sure to love, no matter your preferred genre. it's clear that a lot of work is put into it, and we're lucky to have a city that offers up this kind of thing. i know we're not Chicago, but damn it, we rock it pretty well our own way.
do any of my fellow boston bloggers know when The Long Winters are playing? jennings? jay?
I don't know, but I'm looking forward to seeing the band. I'll be bummed if it conflicts with something else, but there are only one or two other acts that would trump them, so chances are I'll see them.Post a Comment
