The Bank of American Pavilion, Boston’s favorite outdoor amphitheater, is hosting at least 30 of the summer’s hottest rock acts, ranging from original classic bands like Meatloaf and the Doobie Brothers to alternative’s newer additions, Vampire Weekend and MGMT. While the month of July is set to host the original rock bands that dominated the charts in the ‘60s, ‘70s and the ‘80s: kicking off the month with Ringo Starr and his All Starr band, the Doobie Brothers and Chicago, Squeeze and Cheap Trick, Chris Isaak, Band Company and Heart.
July finishes off with the Black Keys, a band that puts a modern spin on a classic bluesy sound, with heavily distorted vocals and raw, seductive guitar solos. Reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, the Keys’ lyrics are accessible and vintage. Their music can easily take listeners to another era, one that screams Woodstock. The Black Key’s 2010 release, Brothers, remains consistent with this antiquated sound. Wrapping up July’s concert calendar, the Black Key’s will hit the stage at the Bank of America Pavilion with the Morning Benders on July 31st.
Arcade Fire kicks off the month of August on the 1st by playing a sold out show as part of their first headlining US tour in three years. Fronted by Canadian husband and wife duo Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, Arcade Fire recently revealed the title of their highly anticipated upcoming album, named The Suburbs, due out August 3rd. They also leaked two tracks, “We Used to Wait” and “Ready to Start” which incorporate the band’s distinguished use of amplified organs with the lessening of all other elements for a more comprehensible outcome. The band is highly recognized for their multi-instrumentalist band members and uplifting, larger-than-life musical arrangements.
