Welcome to the Wrap-Up! We’re bouncing back from a short break with two weeks’ worth of news and irrelevant gifs!
Amy & The Engine Debut a Very Radio-Friendly “Patience”
Somehow continuing the trend of popping out ridiculously catchy singles like PEZ candies, folk-pop group Amy & The Engine let the internet at “Patience” last Monday. Effortlessly pretty with a hint of Jenny Lewis tossed in the mix, this new tune sits nicely alongside previous efforts like “Love Me” and “Last Forever.”

Fest on the Common Steps Outside the Box
Cool-guy grampa millionaire philanthropist Ted Cutler recently paired up with Greater Media Boston to give the city’s show-goers a taste of Outside the Box, which, in case you haven’t heard about, brought Gin Blossoms, Guster, Atlas Genius, Bad Rabbits, and a whole slew of others to Boston Common last week.

Tall Heights Showcase Vocal Prowess, Nice Hair in Live Video for “Horse to Water”
Tall Heights whisked us away to Rockport’s Shalin Liu Performance Center a few months ago with an oh-so-dreamy live session featuring “Spirit Cold”, and now, the folk duo is bringing us back, this time performing “Horse to Water.” With harmonies that give Fleet Foxes a run for their money, not to mention the flowing locks of romantic novel cover art caliber, this video’s got pretty much everything you need.
Feel Inadequate with BetaBoston’s 25 under 25
Recent Tufts Grads Mario Gomez-Hall, Amadou Crookes, and Gabe Jacobs are making waves with Cymbal, their new iOS app that stitches music streaming with social media. This week, the trio was included as a part of BetaBoston’s 25 most innovative people under 25. Other winners include Hanson Grant for launching three businesses before turning 21, and me, for putting maple syrup in my oatmeal this morning.
T.T.’s is Dead and Johnny D’s is Dying Too
Pulled straight from a page out of Where the Red Fern Grows and/or Ben Gibbard’s lyric book, Davis Square hub Johnny D’s Uptown Restaurant and Music Club has announced it will be following the heralded T.T. the Bear’s Place into the dark come early 2016.
While it’s sad to see these places go, don’t forget that we’ll always have our memories—like this one, when a lively elderly man joined his wife on stage to play a Neil Young tune!
