Boston Live Pick of the Week

Out On the Town Thursday
3 Acts That'll Get It Done for You

At The Red Room at Cafe 939 in Boston Thursday night

ABOUT OUR SELECTION - We like the red-hot and well known stuff as much as the next guy (actually, probably more) but we are abundantly aware that what lies beneath the surface of popular trendy music and (before that, secret "hipster" picks) is a tide of emerging bands on the rise. We feel an inspired sense of responsibility to provide opportune moments for these kids as well. (And you know what? Sometimes these are the best shows out there!) Every so often we like to steer our regional readers to attend these sorts of shows that might otherwise fall beneath their gaze. Behold, here is one such event. And, it's happening tomorrow night!
