The Red Hot Chili Peppers take on BOSTON!

May 7, 2012

"All aboard stitching time, you get yours - I got mine."

Red Hot Chili Peppers:

Anthony Kiedis- Vocals

Michael "Flea" Balzary- Bass

Josh Klinghoffer- Guitar

Chad Smith- Drums

Touring Musicians

Chris Warren- Keyboards

Mauro Refosco- Drums

The Red Hot Chili Peppers made the long plane trip across the country to beckon the Boston TD Garden. Steeped in the sports history of competition and camaraderie between the Lakers and the Celtics, the atmosphere here had a driving edge that made the night even more exciting. Both teams were in the playoffs as of this date and the half pant legs of Anthony and Flea were proudly showing purple and yellow socks!

With their original lineup, in a unique tour series this year, Creed chose a select set of albums and played certain ones live at different venues across the Northeast. For the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, it was Human Clay. There is a lot of history of change with this band, and many stories to tell from the fans too. Full Circle, the title of their latest album, was also the theme of this room tonight.

Live Show and Album Review Commentary for Celabrasion by Bluebird.

Photography by Micah Gummel

"Nothing ever happens for the reasons we decide."

We stumbled across Sleeper Agent, an indie-rock-gone-punk band through routine music networking back in February. One listen to their debut album, Celabrasion, with its infectious chords, gripping rhythms and addictive lyrics, and our team here at Bluebirdreviews was hooked!  Sleeper Agent says they were inspired by Cage the Elephant and is proud to tour with Ben Kweller. We were already fired up to cover their show at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on March 23, 2012. Then the night before they hit a nearly sold out crowd in Beantown, they were televised on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and sold out the Irving Plaza in NYC for Saturday's show.

are the voice that they disbelieve. We are not chained to the wheel. And you are the spark

that sets us all freeā€¦" ~~lyrics from Rise by The Cult

The Pioneer Valley Symphony Orchestra

Concert for Education: (Excerpts from) Carnival of Animals

The Pioneer Valley Symphony Orchestra offers an education program with six weeks of training in the classroom, plus a visit from one of the musicians to let the budding students get familiar with the pieces and the instruments in advance of the concert. The finale of the series is the attendance of the show. This year it was Carnival of Animals and these kids were super ready.
