Mothers at Brighton Music Hall -Selected by Matt M.

These Athens, GA locals are perfect for a grey and dreary February afternoon. Lead singer/guitarist Kristine Leschper’s ghostly vocal lines range from haunting yet delicate vibratos to declarative talk-singing. Their brand of chilled out, somber indie has a spacey post-punk tinge that sets them apart from the rest. Their highly anticipated debut album is out later this month, so check them out in Brighton before they’re playing sold out shows!

Catey Shaw and Florio at Great Scott -Selected by Beth

Inject yourself with an ethereal combination this Monday: Catey Shaw and Boston’s own Florio. 80s-inspired Florio is pop for our new age; pure emotion tinged with a unique electronic dreaminess. Fresh from Brooklyn, jazz infused pop from Catey Shaw will sweep you off your feet as she blends watercolor vocals with upbeat electronic melodies. Seeing these talented two for only TEN DOLLARS is a steal, and a decision you won’t regret.

Margaret Glaspy at Brighton Music Hall -Selected by Will

Folk/bluegrass singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy has been quietly making her way around the Boston music scene for years now, and has yet to receive the attention she deserves. Her raspy, emotive voice demands your attention, and she is a shy but dynamic performer. Her songs are earnest, artfully constructed, and catchy. Her debut album comes out this summer and it is a must-get!

Kid Cudi at House of Blues Boston -Selected by Jon

With a Metacritic user score on 1.9 out of 10 for his latest album, Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, you might wonder why I’m recommending you go see him. Well, sometimes remarkable flops deserve to be seen performed live. It’s a win-win: Either Cudi kills it by performing songs from his melodic backlog that made him famous, or he steers his car into the wall and we root for a wreck.
