Back in early April I wrote that Karmin would be headlining Boston Pride’s Festival on Saturday, June 8th. The duo, who recently moved from Boston where they met at Berkeley School of Music to pursue what has turned out to be a successful career as pop musicians, will most likely play their 2012 hit Hello.
You can see up close how handsome Nick Noonan (one half of Karmin) is if you head down to Government Center later today, following the conclusion of the Boston Pride parade.
With temperatures in Boston and all along the East Coast soaring into the 90s this song seems very appropriate. Hope you find some Summer Lovin’.
This past weekend Government Center hosted 20,000 music fans for two consecutive days at an event called Boston Calling. The music festival was so successful that the organizers, Crash Line Productions, announced a second Boston Calling Music Festival will take place on, September 7-8. For more information about the Labor Day weekend line up read here.
Note: Early bird tickets for Boston Calling will go on sale Friday, May 31, at 10 a.m. at The Sinclair or Royale box offices (no service charge) or online at www.bostoncalling.com. General admission weekend passes start at $120 and VIP weekend passes are $325. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Music Therapy Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Kelly Rowland performs at the Wilbur Theatre later this week on Wednesday, May 29th. No doubt she’ll be singing her new single, Dirty Laundry, which can be download from iTunes starting tomorrow. Tickets can be purchased here.
The two day music festival, Boston Calling 2013, is already underway and will continue rain or shine through tomorrow with some great musical acts. Are you attending this sold out event?

Students at Harvard Medical School released a parody of Macklemore’s Thrift Shop. I have to admit they did an excellent job. If you want to see the lyrics since they changed it up just click the closed caption option on the video.
RuPaul’s Lick It Lollipop featuring Lady Bunny includes a handsome guy and little else, but that is enough for me. I’m such a music enthusiast.
Boston-native, Donna Summer, the original disco diva, passed away at the age of 63, on May 17th, 2012, but I still love her and her music. What’s your favorite Donna Summer song? Here is one of mine.
Check out this hilarious video from Katie Goodman’s Broad Comedy was posted last year. I hadn’t seen this until JoeMyGod brought my attention to it. I love the chorus “If you’re homophobic, you’re probably gay.“
Boston buskers: Rhett Price and Josh Knowles
Two former Berkelee College of Music students, Rhett Price and Josh Knowles, have made a full time job out of playing contemporary music on their violins for MBTA riders. Making a living as a full time busker can be tough, but these guys are clearly talented and I wish them continued success. Should you see these guys playing, please be generous and drop a few dollars in their violin case. MBTA Performers Make a Living Playing Taylor Swift Songs on Violins for Riders.
You can read more about these guys in Steve Annear’s article,
You can also follow these guys on Facebook here.
This hilarious video is dedicated to my brother, Timothy, but I have a feeling many of you will probably relate. Just a quick heads up that this probably is not appropriate to watch if around children or at your office.
Thanks to David over at WGB for posting this video on his FB page this weekend. I believe I’ve posted this video before but I love it (and Michael Buble) so I’m using this as an excuse to repost.
I’ve had Kylie on the brain all day, and this tribute video from the guys over at Randy Blue is a personal favorite. I can’t believe it was two years ago this month that Kylie Minogue kicked off the American leg of her Aphrodite Tour here in Boston. I hope she’ll come back before long, but til then I hope you enjoy this.
