Tigerman, WOAH! Bring Honest, Local Music to Lineup of Boston Calling

Lynn-based Tigerman, WOAH! will be the second local act to play at this year’s spring installment of the Boston Calling music festival series. One might expect the band's sound to come out of the Deep South, rather than the suburbs of Boston. Lead singer Adam Kaz brings a refreshing blend of gritty, raw lyrics steeped in a quart of whiskey. The band seems to draw from a wide variety of influences, but tends to gravitate towards genres and ideas that emphasize the messages of strength and overcoming obstacles. “Gospel is so good because of it’s message, ‘we see hope, we see light,’” says Kaz.

"We try to make our music as organic as possible," echoes drummer Adam Lentine. "We feel that as long as we play the music, if we get a response, then that’s great. [But the beliefs of] solidarity, brotherhood ... music should be used to get that message across.”

It’s this belief in music's inherent emotional power that drives the band to keep making great music and putting on captivating live performances. Boston Calling will be one of the biggest stages the band has played to date, but its honest music coupled with its raucous stage presence will be sure to win over many new fans.
 

Be sure to catch Tigerman, WOAH! at 1:45PM on the final day of the festival, Sunday, May 25. For more information about the band, check out Tigerman, WOAH!'s Facebook page. For continued updates about the Boston Calling festival, visit the Boston Calling website.

Shorewave Records Presents: Honeywild, Fax Holiday and Funeral Advantage on February 22

Boston/Brooklyn-based label Shorewave Records is taking over the Tasty Burger basement in Harvard Sq. (Cambridge, MA)  this Saturday night, February 22. Upon first glance, that may not seem like a novel occurence (there's a ton of "Brooklyn" and "Boston/Brooklyn" labels and promotions groups out there vying for attention), but the quality of this bill sets Shorewave apart from the competition. Honeywild (on the Shorewave roster) will be joined by my local favorite Fax Holiday and Funeral Advantage, starting promptly at 9PM. 

Doors are at 8PM and the show is FREE. The Shorewave bill will be followed by another epic event produced by Eye Design (featuring Ontario-based The Dirty Nil), so be sure to stick around after the show to catch even more rad tunes.
