Japan’s most versatile drone/doom/experimental metal band spent two nights in Boston last weekend as a part of their From the Past, the Present and Through to the Future tour. I was distracted by a former Smith during Saturday’s “greatest hits” set, but I made it to Brighton for the full album performance of Flood the next night. The Converge-affiliated Doomriders opened.

Hello there. It’s been a while. As you’re probably aware, Boston has been a bit chaotic as of late. My personal life has gone ahead and followed suit. Things are calming down though, and at last I have time to get around to a month’s worth of back content. First up are photos from a brilliant Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds show at the Orpheum, which I shot on black and white Ilford Delta ASA 3200 film. Imperfect results, but charmingly so. Check them out here.
Thurston Moore has also been in town recently, bringing his post-Sonic Youth band Chelsea Light Moving to The Sinclair on April 7th. I reviewed that show for Allston Pudding, and you can read about it here. A gallery with additional photos is also up at the Noise Floor photography page.
Stay tuned for photos and a recollection of some sort from the Wavves/FIDLAR show at Brighton Music Hall on the 5th in the next day or two.
It’s good to be back.
One year to the day after controversial rap group Odd Future played the House of Blues and were shut down mid-song by Boston police, ringleader Tyler, the Creator returned for a solo show in promotion of his new album, Wolf.
Glaswegian noise-pop trio PAWS hit Great Scott on Monday night as a part of their first U.S. tour, leading up to South by Southwest. Read on for first impressions and photos, also featuring openers Idiot Genes.

I don’t write nearly enough album reviews, but Nick Cave’s stunning new record is one I feel rather strongly about. Read my thoughts on it at length over at the Tastemakers Magazine site.
