Weekly Wrap-Up: 2/8/2015 Billy February 9, 2015 Columns, Featured, News, Weekly Wrap-Up And we’re back! Here to give you the scoop on all things Boston music is this week’s Weekly Wrap-Up. Boston Calling Update: Beck, Tame Impala, and Sharon Van Etten to Play Friday As Boston City Plaza awaits the surge of twenty-something-year-old hipsters and the occasional disheveled parent at this May’s Boston Calling, the fest is finalizing its lineup and letting the masses at both Friday night and weekend passes. Beck, Tame Impala, and Sharon Van Etten will be christening the main stages on Friday, with a slew of huge acts following as the weekend goes on. If you want to see firsthand just how old Pixies really are, sing along to Tove Lo’s one song, or get your gut busted by Tenacious D, here’s your chance. Magic Man Gets a Spot on the Guardian’s Playlist The Guardian gave a sweet shout-out to Boston’s own electropop five-piece, Magic Man, last Monday, granting them a slot on their playlist along with Swim Mountain, Joey Fourr, Loris, and Marriages.
