Beautiful Grace Potter will be rocking the House of Blues on 11/19.
11/3: Monsters of Folk, Orpheum Theatre:
This supergroup is made up of Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes), M. Ward, and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. Those three have been doing the occasional show or recording together for years, but finally have an album out and an official tour.
11/4: Ray LaMontagne, Citi Performing Arts Center:
This raspy singer-songwriter from Maine is probably best known for his single, “You Are the Best Thing.”
11/5 & 11/6: Lotus, Paradise Rock Club:
Lotus is a quntessential jamtronica band, meaning that they fuse live instrumental jam rock with the sounds of dance and electronica. This show is sure to be a party.
11/7: Girls, Great Scott:
