St. Vincent Concert Review | Exposure Exclusive

Exactly one month after garnering the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album (effectively beating Jack White, Alt-J, Arcade Fire, and Cage the Elephant), singer-songwriter St. Vincent paid Providence a special visit for an explosive show at Lupo's on Sunday. High expectations were in place for the critically-acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and her 18-song set, which spanned over an hour and a half, definitely did not disappoint.

Home BRU’d Sessions: Forest Fires

A few years in the making, Mike Sweet, Dan MacKnight, Cal Cadoret, Ian van Opijnen, and Brad Caetano (formally of Herra Terra) have honed their indie rock sound as Forest Fires—taking their time to find the perfect lineup (and doing a damn good job of it!)

Forest Fires will be playing with the Airborne Toxic Event, Robert DeLong, and Panama Wedding at Lupo’s for WBRU's Holid
