The Lumineers and Bad Weather California 10/2 Henry Fonda Theatre LA Review

October 4, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Ace Ubas

When you’re a band that’s trying to make it, there are a couple of signs that show how successful you are. For example, you may have a hit single that is being played in radio stations across the country. Or, when you sell out a show in a big market city such as Los Angeles and the demand is so high that a second show has to be added – which also sells out. In this case, …

Royal Teeth 9/27 T.T. The Bear’s Review

October 3, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Cassandra Paiva

Royal Teeth took the stage at T.T. The Bear’s in Cambridge, MA without any real expectations, just to put on a fun, high energy show. They had only been to Boston once prior, opening for The Kooks at House of Blues in May. Online radio station RadioBDC loved them as openers, so they decided to pick them up for their band breaking “+1 Series” as headliners.

Since T.T.’s is in the heart of college town, and it …

Album Review: Muse – The 2nd Law

October 2, 2012 The Audio Perv 0


By Matt Arena

I’m in a weird place with Muse. They were the first band I really fell in love with. I’ve seen them upwards of 9 times, been lucky enough to meet/interview them, and essentially have them to thank for really getting me into music. So it makes this next sentence that much harder to say: I can’t stand what they’ve become. That’s not to say this is the first time I’ve disliked a release, as some of …

Music Midtown 2012 Festival Review

September 25, 2012 The Audio Perv 0


By Matt Arena

The 2012 summer festival season has been a great one. Though at times it may have felt more like a Jack White/The Black Keys festival tour, there were some rather pleasant surprises. The inaugural year for Firefly Festival was quite possibly the best of the summer, and the incredibly well organized (and Metallica curated) Orion Music + More Festival both prove that you don’t need to stick to any of the major mainstays to have a great …

Metric 9/23 Radio City Music Hall NYC Review/Photos

September 24, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Michel Dussack

Rock bands don’t play Radio City Music Hall very often, but when they do, it’s almost always a show that’s memorable forever. Canadian indie rockers Metric’s show at the historic New York venue on September 23rd was no exception, and while being confined to an area in front of a seat may have stifled the crowd a little, the band was firing on all cylinders. The band’s 18 song set was based heavily upon their 2012 release …

Sick Puppies and Seether 9/20 House of Blues Boston Review

September 23, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Cassandra Paiva

“The power of three compels you” seemed to be the motto of the night as the Triple Threat line up took their tour to Boston to rock the night away at House of Blues.

The only band on the bill that isn’t a trio, five piece band Young Guns came all the way from London to open their first US tour. Their sound was very appropriate for the bill, altering between heavy, thumpy bass lines and rhythm …

Morning Parade and the Wombats 9/12 Met Cafe Pawtucket Review

September 20, 2012 The Audio Perv 0


By Cassandra Paiva

It was an all English lineup as the trifecta of bands met in Pawtucket, Rhode Island for a reunion of sorts.

See, Morning Parade and The Wombats have toured together a few times and have become real close friends. And Lovelife, which features members of the former band Viva Brother, have played a few shows with each band as well. Another fun fact is that this was the second time playing a show in Rhode Island for …

Green Day 9/15 Nokia Music Launch Concert at Irving Plaza Review

September 17, 2012 The Audio Perv 1

By Michel Dussack

Last time Green Day were in New York, they announced a last minute pre-Halloween show at the super intimate Studio at Webster Hall. The band used that show as an opportunity to practice unreleased material and gauge crowd reactions to help determine what songs would make their new album. Several months later, the band announced that they would not be releasing just one new album; they would be releasing a trilogy of albums entitled ‘Uno!’, ‘Dos!’, and …

The Vaccines 9/13 Troubadour LA Review

September 16, 2012 The Audio Perv 1

By Malvina Rincon

Outside of the historic (and tiny) Troubadour in West Hollywood, disappointed fans attempted to get into the sold out show. Meanwhile, openers Deap Vally started the night with their bluesy-rock infused riffs as the lucky crowd with tickets began to trickle in for the headliners – The Vaccines.

The London-based quartet walked onto the stage to cheers from the anxious crowd before ripping into “No Hope” the first track from their, soon to be released, sophomore album …
