Concert Recap: Frank Turner @ the Majestic Theater

I know some people have been waiting too long for this one. Let’s get to it.

Concert Recap: Summerfest 2013, Part 2

Going to cram days 2-4 of my Summerfest experience into this one post. Leggo. Day 2: Bought a keg for pregaming, so that was interesting. When we got to the grounds, we immediately went to the stage where alternative band Cake was playing, and saw rap-rock/alternative rap group Aer (pronounced air) perform. The Boston-based group […]
