Here are four more bands that will be performing at Boston Calling, Boston’s own music festival, coming up September 7 & 8. On Saturday, following after Lucius will be Okkervil River and New England favorites, Deer Tick. On Sunday, to keep everyone dancing after Big Black Delta, is a beat-maker from Sydney, Flume and Chicago-based DJs J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci), who go by the name of Flosstradamus. The line-up for this second Boston Calling festival is such that you have a stellar indie rock line-up on Saturday and the best of electronic, hip-hop, house and dance music on Sunday, for those who have a specific preference and can only make it for one day. Have a look/listen below at these four, and stay tuned for more of these “mini profiles” leading up to Boston’s big weekend.
Okkervil River ~ Saturday
Flume ~ Sunday
Flume is an electronic music project, created by Harley Streten from Sydney, Australia.
Deer Tick ~ Saturday
John McCauley of Deer Tick just performed at Newport Folk Festival, but it you couldn’t make it to that, you have a chance to see the entire band at Boston Calling. A rootsy alt-country New England favorite, their next album “Negativity” is coming out on Partisan Records on September 24. For now, have a listen to “The Rock.” Ah, nice.
Flosstradamus ~ Sunday
Ok, so I’ll admit I don’t know a thing about Flux Pavilion and even less about remixes, but this Flosstradamus remix of a Flux Pavilion song (apparently) just got uploaded a few weeks ago, so here ya go. If you like this sort of thing, definitely check out Sunday’s lineup, as it seems like a great offering for electronic and hip-hop fans.
