All proceeds from the show are being split between Bernie’s campaign and Out Of The Blue– what better way to spend your Super Tuesday than supporting a candidate? Accompanying the release of a Boston for Bernie compilation featuring songs from myriad local artists, the show is accepting donations as admission and is in a space surrounded by art. Other band’s include Puppy Problems, Community College, and Saccharine.

Leon Bridges at The Wang Theater – Selected by Jon
Friday, March 11th, 2016
Brian Fallon & The Crowes at Royale – Selected by Josh G.
With the Gaslight Anthem on hiatus, Brian Fallon’s gone solo. Eschewing his band’s loud rock, Fallon’s turned to folk music, one of his original inspirations. From the preview tracks, the move seems cathartic for Fallon, as his confessional and conversational lyrics fit nicely over quieter, more intimate arrangements. The Royale show will also act as a de facto album release party; Fallon’s Painkillers drops on the same day.
Beach House at House of Blues – Selected by Matt J.
Put on your best pair of headphones. Listen to any album by Beach House front to back. Cry that you can’t get tickets to the intimate “installation” show on the 12th. Get tickets to the show at House of Blues like everyone else.
