Ne-Hi at The Middle East

By Wyndham Lewis

James Weir stands sentry at the front of the small Middle East Upstairs stage in Cambridge, MA, essentially playing weathervane to the relative cool of Mikey Wells and the more spastic Jason Balla who trade lead and backing vocals during the more-than hour-long Ne-Hi set.

Jay Som at Baby's All Right

By Christian Lewis

Was I looking forward to Jay Som’s show at Baby’s All Right? Sure. I guess. Maybe. The Bay Area’s latest indie rock darling, Melina Duterte, has been widely lauded for her full-length debut LP, Everybody Works, which she recorded solo and posted to Bandcamp before Polyvinyl caught wind and gave it a formal release.
