September Concert Preview!

Summer is dwindling down (sad sauce) which means that fall is fast approaching. While back to school season can be a real bummer, there are several concerts lined up for September to perk you right up.

 

Neutral Milk Hotel

Klien Memorial Auditorium, Bridgeport CT

September 7

If you’ve never heard of this indie favorite, I strongly encourage you to do yourself a favor and check them out, and once you fall in love, see them live!

Ed Sheeran

Xfinity Center, Mansfield MA

September 9

With a melancholy voice, and soulful lyrics, Ed Sheeran’s tunes are both perfectly relaxing, yet exhilarating. Can’t wait to see how he sounds live!

Astronautalis

The Space, Hamden CT

September 12

Known as an alternative hip hop act, this guy has amazing rapping style and can get you jamming within 10 seconds of a song starting. Don’t believe me? Savor this track featuring Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers & Steve Winwood

XL Center, Hartford CT

September 13

Who doesn’t love the classics? Tom Petty might be getting up there in years, but he still knows how to put on an amazing show.

OK Go

Paradise Rock Club, Boston MA

September 17

Perhaps best remembered for their music video for the song “Here it Goes Again,” in which the band jumped around in a sequence on treadmills for the entirety of the song, OK Go has several other awesome tracks that are worth listening to.

Jack White

Fenway Park, Boston MA

September 17

On the same night, Jack White will be performing, so flip a coin, draw straws, do whatever you need to do to make a decision, but both shows are well worth catching. Jack White has been all over the radio lately with his solo song “Lazaretto,” and the entire album is amazing.

September 20

Sheezus. So important.
