PILE. The indisputable heroes of Boston’s burgeoning indie rock scene hardly need an introduction. The band’s name speaks volumes to most, and to the rest… it soon will. Earning the reputation of “your favorite band’s favorite band,” the quartet (Rick Maguire, Kris Kuss, Matt Connery, and Matt Becker) have been setting the DIY indie punk scene ablaze since 2009, developing a unanimously praised back catalog in the process and a legion of diehard fans throughout the entire country and abroad. The band have toured heavily over the years, playing all ages venues and basements in the spirit of DIY culture with peers Speedy Ortiz, Big Ups, LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Krill, etc. as well as support shows with bands like Obits, Ex Hex, and Metz. Their new album, You’re Better Than This, comes out March 3 on Exploding in Sound.
The Wrists are a band from Louisville, which exploded on the scene with their first release, a cassette on AuralgamiSOUNDS in January. Consisting of Colin Kellogg, Jason Sparks, McKinley Moore, and Matt Filip, The Wrists are the most exciting new band around!
WAXEATER are “diggin’ through the ditches, burning through the witches, eatin’ pizza, taco-ing our riffs, having one dude named rob, riding in vanne frank, drinknig bourbon, gettin’ electrocuted, lovin’ america, havin’ a baby, poking smot, and slamming in the back of our dragula.”
Somewhere between punk and blues – a porch and an alley – lies Radiator King, the performing/recording name of Boston native and Brooklyn-based Adam Silvestri. Established in 2011, Radiator King’s music shows influences from both Dylan and Strummer with a sound described by Boston blog Allston Pudding as something akin to what “Tom Waits locked in a room for a month with nothing but a copy of Springsteen’s Nebraska” might produce. Whether alone with a guitar or backed by a band, Radiator King embodies the raw energy of punk, the grit and intricacy of Delta Blues, and the lyrical potency of folk in “songs that are the sonic equivalent to an old whiskey bar at the end of a dirt road.”
