Boston Calling will hopefully open the door to future festivals and the like, as Boston is a highly underserved market for such happenings. Having grown up and gone to school there, I can say that I wish Boston Calling had been running when I was around, as it turns the entire city into a party for the weekend.

Boston Calling Is a Thing and It's Happening Again: Co-Founder Brian Appel Talks Festival's Second Weekend

There's no mistaking Boston Calling for a Coachella or a Lollapalooza. Ticket holders are able to roam in and out of City Hall (i.e. make decisions as adults) and, for the most part, Boston Calling's footprint on those outside of the festival has minimal impact.

Punk music in its purest form projects an element of danger and disruption, rage and revolt. It is music with the power to jolt the listener awake. Maybe 2013 will be the year British post-punk wakes people up.

How does one make sense of the interplay between man's finitude and the subtle hope for belief in something larger, some strain of religious life? Ezra Koenig, lead singer and lyricist for Vampire Weekend, has lately had this question in mind, if the indie-pop group's new album is any indication.
