To say that she brought the house down would be an understatement. Thursday, February 26th Beth Hart performed at The Sinclair and showed Cambridge, MA what a pure vocal soul sounds like. Hart performed some of her classic songs like “Baddest Blues,” “Leave The Light On,” and some of her newest material from the soon to be released, “Better Than Home.” The musicians backing her were truly spectacular and provided such a positive energy that captivated the audience and made them send the energy right back to Beth. Watching Beth and her band having fun on stage was such a breath of fresh air. The performance was high energy at times, and the Beth would sit down at the piano and play pieces that truly came from her heart. Between songs, Hart spoke to the audience as if they were all long time friends that haven’t seen each other in a while and were catching up. This was one of the best shows I’ve seen in a while and it left me feeling inspired. Her upcoming release, “Better Than Home” will be available April 13th, 2015.
This past week the BIRN received the album The Race For Space from the band, Public Service Broadcasting. This London based duo combines samples from old public information films, archive footage, and propaganda material with live drums, guitars, and electric patches. A good first track to introduce you to the band would be “Gargarin.” Public Service Broadcasting are now on tour and will be coming to Allston to play at Great Scott on April 8th at 9pm. Tickets are going fast so if you want to experience this band live, get moving.
