The Bravery, (not sure about support acts)
at the House Of Blues, Boston, MA
Friday, October 9
(doors at 7pm; all ages show)
The Bravery is a NYC-based band who have been around since 2003, though with their new wave/punk aesthetic, they sound like they’ve been around much longer than that. Definitely an 80’s thing going on, and I don’t mean that in a bad way! There’s Sam Endicott (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Zakarin (lead guitar, backing vocals), John Conway (keyboards, backing vocals), Mike Hindert (bass, backing vocals), and Anthony Burulcich (drums, backing vocals).
After playing for a few months in New York City clubs, they had a residency at Arlene’s Grocery on the Lower East Side in May 2004, and it was around this time they received their first radio airplay, on ‘Alter Ego’, hosted by Paul Driscoll on Boston’s WFNX (they properly thanked him at the recent ‘Best Music Poll’ show by letting him sit in on drums during a cover of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”).
They have two albums out: The Bravery (2005), and The Sun and the Moon (2007), and are probably best known for their song “Believe”, which reached number 4 on the US Alternative Charts in April 2008. Their new album, Stir The Blood, will be released on November 10.
Ok, Universal isn’t letting me embed the official video, so you’ll have to go over to YouTube to see “Believe”
