The June 2014 edition of our monthly Spotify playlist features the perfect summer tune from The Griswolds, a long-anticipated fresh jam from M&T favorite Liam Finn, our new emo guilty pleasure from Foxing, and 17 other delectable …

Posted on by Eric in M&T Favorites | Leave a comment

Los Angeles based producer/DJ Jennifer Lee aka TOKiMONSTA released her sophomore LP Half Shadows in 2013, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to sit around and let the songs get stale. Last week Lee released the two-part music video for Half Shadows track “Soul to Seoul.” For the project, TOKiMONSTA collaborated with LA based Maker Music to create a captivating and deeply emotional video. I would continue to try and do the video justice with more praise, but I think this is one …

Booger Money, a local promoter new to the music scene, will be producing their first Cambridge show at TT’s next Wednesday May 21. I know the first question on everyone’s mind is what in the hell is Booger Money? So we asked BM partner Andréa Hudson and got an answer that only seems logical in retrospect, “Booger Money is when you have enough dough to wipe your nose with hundreds.” Of course it is. As for what you can expect …

Friendly People Take NYC + Boston This Week

The last time we covered local favorites Friendly People they were headed down to Austin to take part in this year’s SXSW festivities. Since then they’ve found themselves at the center of a Boston Globe article about local bands at SXSW, released a new live video for “A Lot Of Work To Do,” and even had time to hit the studio to begin recording tracks for their next release.
