Coming Wednesday: Cuddle Magic

We crammed the near-dozen members of Cuddle Magic into a living room and a stairwell before bringing them outdoors, where curious passersby cheered them on: Due to some site maintenance and changes, we’re going to release the awesomely awesome show on Wednesday!

Sleepover Show #35: The Boston String Players

Sometime last summer we read an article about the Boston String Players explaining how conductor Motoki Tanaka found his greatest happiness through exposing new audiences to the classical compositions he loved.  Having gathered together some of the upcoming talents here in town, Tanaka organizes concerts and other performances to help broaden the audience for the … Continue reading

Sleepover Show #34: Horse Feathers

We cannot express how much we were looking forward to our time with Horse Feathers.  We’ve admired Justin Ringle’s lyrics since their debut, Words are Dead.  If you have had the opportunity to see the band live, however, you know that his words and the music by Nathan Crockett, Catherine Odell and Sam Cooper take … Continue reading

SXSW Preview

Over the last few months, we have been lucky enough to meet such a diverse, talented group of musicians, who have stopped by our place, filmed with us in the streets, or shuffled around their schedules to meet us backstage so that we can capture intimate performances of tunes that we love.  Since we started … Continue reading

Sleepover Show #33: Anna Vogelzang

Anna Vogelzang showed up just as the sun was going down, and the Boston skyline was shimmering and gray.  We quickly decided to try and film something outdoors, with the wind low, and the cold creeping in.  They set up a few doors down from our apartment, under a tree still red with the last … Continue reading

Sleepover Show #32: Midi and the Modern Dance

A chance encounter in the summer of 2010 lead us to Midi & The Modern Dance.

With genre stretching hooks, passionate vocals and the rocking-est accordion this side of Gogol Bordello, Midi was a … Continue reading

Sleepover Show #30 The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library

As with every fulfilling library experience, our time with the Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library began with a proper shushing.  Having been welcomed into their home, with the furniture rearranged to accommodate all eight members, we knew we were in for a special evening.  But we didn’t know just how much fun we’d have.  We … Continue reading

Sleepover Show #29: Tim Kasher

The first time I heard Tim Kasher’s voice, I was 16 years old. My friend Alex made me a mix CD, and on it was the Cursive song, After the Movies. As the young Tim Kasher screamed the song’s climax through my headphones, I experienced a degree of honesty and purity in the music that … Continue reading
