When it comes to cities being a symbol of American freedom, no other city has that authentic feel more than Boston.
Beantown is dripping in American patriotism, and one can put their money in the mouth that Boston will be an active city on the 4th of July; with events ranging from outdoor family activities to extravagant fireworks. For a little extra fun to celebrate the 4th in Boston, try attending a concert or show to get those freedom juices flowing.
Frank Turner has spent the better part of his career fine-tuning his "folk-punk" sound. For those who have never heard of it, it's basically a high energy version of the traditional folk sound, which Turner and his band, The Sleeping Souls, has spent over a decade bringing to the masses. The band will bring their folk-punk to Boston's Royale for Independence Day weekend, which should aid in getting the party started.
Adult Swim Presents The Pillows ft. FLCL
July 10 @ 8 pm
Royale -- 279 Tremont St., Boston, MA 02116
Ever since it premiered in 2001, Adult Swim has become a cultural phenom among adults who enjoy a more "adult" taste in animated content. The newest kid on the block is FLCL, which is starting to become a cornerstone of the block's Toonami series, and along with it, The Pillows will hit the Royale in Boston right after the Independence Day festivities will subside.
Yes, this show will be in effect long after the 4th of July passes, but a show this animated and awesome should not be left off the list. Emo Night In Boston will bring in famed DJ's Luke O'Neil and Nick Greico to pump up the crowd on a night that will see the emos claim the Boston night.
Just in time for the 4th of July weekend, one of music's more popular bands will make their way to the East Providence Waterfront for a night of music and hoof times. The Roots will play a set at Bold Point Park, a splendid venue that is one of New England's best live music venues.
