The band Coven was formed in Chicago in the late 1960s, fronted by lead singer Jinx Dawson (now the only original member left in the band). Previously banned from performing in Boston, the group played their first show on their All Hallows High Ritual portion of the Magickal Chaos Tour at Sonia in Cambridge on Friday, October 26.
On Tuesday night, Boston’s House of Blues was fortunate enough to host the kickoff concert of Thievery Corporation’s 2018 cross-country tour. Touring their latest LP Treasures From the Temple, the album showcases their unique electronic spin on the spirit and power of Reggae music, once again proving their unprecedented ability to combine sound with sentiment. The album is a deep exploration of the soul of Reggae, the perfect pairing to their 2017 studio album, The Temple of I & I, which was itself a milestone for the group.
On a rainy Tuesday at the Paradise Rock Club, I sit down with Harriette Pilbeam, the 25-year-old songwriter behind the Australian dream pop outfit Hatchie, which just released their debut EP Sugar and Spice this May.
Veins of lyrical candor and layers of harmony run deep through the entirety of Rainbow Kitten Surprise’s musical collection, setting the band apart from its contemporaries as much as its unorthodox name does.
