While the venue is new to Boston, The House of Blues has already managed to get some pretty big artists to play in the next few months. Check it out.
4/18- State Radio.
5/14- Animal Collective. Hooray for the best new(ish) band coming to Boston! Too bad it’s already sold out.
BU’s Agganis Arena has a few notables as well:
4/17- Flight of the Conchords. Perhaps you’ve heard of “New Zealand’s second best folk-parody group.” They’ve enjoyed relative popularity since their HBO series started up a year or so ago, mostly due to their cleverly crafted, hilarious songs about racist dragons, hiphopopotami, and erobots.
4/18 & 4/19- Kings of Leon. They’re a great band and judging by their live tracks, put on great shows.
And finally, some scattered shows-
4/16- Indigo Girls @ The Orpheum. They’re pretty darn fine; or, close to it. (that is meant to be a play on their most famous song, "Closer to Fine." I think its funny.)
4/20- of Montreal @ The Paradise. You all know these guys, but you don’t realize it. Outback Steakhouse’s catchy “Let’s go Outback tonight” jingle is actually a cover of an of Montreal song…”Wraith pinned to the mist and other games.” Yeah, they’re quirky.
4/22- Interrobang?! @ Great Scott in Allston. This South Shore based band recently got signed, and for good reason.
4/25- Ben Folds @ Johnson Center in Cambridge. He’s good at piano and whatnot.
5/9- Boyz II Men @ Showcase Live in Foxboro. 90's flashback, anyone?
