Oh, And If You Feel Like Skipping Town Tonight

[youtube]xEHfKGM1QdU[/youtube] Broadcast are playing at the Paradise in Boston tonight.  Promoting their new mini-album, the wonderfully chic British group will be playing with Atlas Sound and the Selmanaires.

[youtube]GI-3jykWsN0[/youtube] The Manic Street Preachers haven’t toured the US since the nineties, but they’re back now promoting their new album, Journal For Plague Lovers.  All the album’s lyrics were written by Richey Edwards, the group’s guitarist who abruptly disappeared fourteen years ago.  (He was never found, and officially presumed dead last November.)  Meanwhile, the band’s

Boston Readers: School Of Thought, The Cold War at TT’s

Disclaimer: I’m in The Cold War. What of it? Direct from Sunderland in the UK, School Of Language, who sound like Modest Mouse and V. Weekend, bring their sweeping US tour through Boston, specifically TT The Bears. Their songs are very cool, check them out. They’re so American sounding you’d never guess they were British.
