The first two Boston Calling festivals were two-day events, and proved to be quite successful. Capitalizing on that success, the organizers have decided to modify the City Hall Plaza festival and will add a third day on Friday, May 23rd.
The lineup won’t be announced until early 2014, but discounted three-day passes go on presale this Friday at 10am here.
After an inaugural year and two hugely successful festivals in 2013, Boston Calling Music Festival adds a Friday evening to its third edition, taking place Memorial Day weekend May 23, 24 and 25, 2014, at the city’s historic City Hall Plaza [One City Hall Square, Boston, Massachusetts]. Now up from its two-day format in 2013, Boston Calling is also making available a very limited number of its 2014 3-Day passes with a special Holiday Pre-sale this Friday, December 6 at 10AM EST.
Holiday Presale: With holiday spirit, and in celebration of its Friday night addition, Boston Calling announces a very limited holiday pre-sale for 3-Day Passes. General Admission 3-Day passes are $130 and VIP 3-Day passes are $300, a significant discount from the upcoming general on-sale prices. “We are offering this special sale to the fans of Boston Calling as a way of saying thank you for a great inaugural year” says Appel. Holiday Pre-sale passes will be on sale this Friday, December 6, 2013 at 10AM EST online at www.bostoncalling.com, www.ticketmaster.com. While bands will not be announced until early 2014, ticket buyers can count on another stellar weekend of music, similar in style to 2013’s May edition.

Brooklyn folk band, the Lone Bellow, released their debut album this past January, and with a little help from NPR, the band started to get some attention. Almost a year later, the band continues to get quite the buzz due to their solid album and energetic live performances. Wednesday night was no exception, as the band played to a sold out crowd at the Paradise Rock Club.

Chris Cornell Played The Calvin Theatre (Northampton, MA) Photos / Setlist / Video / Review - 11.17.2013
In November of 2011, Chris Cornell released Songbook, an acoustic live album that included Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog, solo, and cover songs. He’s been playing dates this fall, picking up where his 2011 solo Songbook tour left off, and I was fortunate enough to catch him this past Sunday night at the Calvin Theater in Northampton.
The setlist was solid, and included a good mix of songs throughout his career. The lively crowd yelled out songs they wanted to hear, and Chris even played a few rare tunes. He played “Bones or Birds”, a song only played live acoustically once before, and even played a few verses of “I Will Always Love You” (Dolly Parton cover), which he rarely plays.
There was a little girl in the second row who was holding up a sign that read “My First Concert”. Chris, having a daughter of his own, seemed genuinely touched by this. He made special mentions of her several times through the course of the night, and even played “Footsteps” (Pearl Jam cover), a song she wanted to hear. He would play eight more cover songs after that (full setlist after the photos), and even sang two songs to vinyl recordings (“When I’m Down” and “Silence the Voices”).
All in all, he played 33 songs and delivered a performance that clocked in at three hours. He has one of the most amazing rock voices out there today, which worked really well with the acoustic guitar. Chris is a class act, and seems to be enjoying this new musical chapter of his life, making these shows definitely worth seeing.
