BostonBound: Iron and Wine and the Secret Sisters

Iron and Wine is Boston bound…

Samuel Beam–also known as his stage name Iron and Wine–will be bringing his unique and distinctive voice to the Berklee Performance Center tonight with support from the Secret Sisters. Like most shows at Berklee, this lineup promises not to disappoint. Here’s just a taste of what you’ll get live.

And if that’s not enough, there’s this.

The show starts at 7:30 and you can purchase tickets here.

Song of the Day: “Jackie Wilson Said”

All right, gang. It’s finally Friday. And it’s finally May. And it’s FINALLY starting to feel like summer.  That can only mean one thing: It’s time for some Van Morrison.

For me, nothing screams summer–and Cape Cod–like the smooth, barely comprehensible tunes of this northern Irishman. “Jackie Wilson Said” is about as summertime as it gets. Why, you ask? Maybe it’s all Cool102‘s fault. Maybe it’s because the song is the “Sweet Caroline” of the Chatham Anglers (formerly of Chatham A’s fame). Maybe it’s because this horn section reminds me of beers on the back deck on the 4th of July. Whatever the reason, I recommend you press play, turn it up, and enjoy. It’s practically summertime in Boston. Let’s let it all hang out, like Van Morrison said.

Boston Marathon 2013

Where we were a month ago.

Literally – this photo was shot by We Love Beantown’s own Alex Dupnik.

And we were cheering on Beacon and Boylston streets, frolicking in the sun with our dogs, toasting friends in bars, watching the Red Sox at Fenway – and then.

Today, let’s look at and reflect on how things have changed, and, more importantly, how they haven’t.

Where we are now: Eating and shopping on Boylston street, running and frolicking in the sun, toasting friends in bars, watching the Sox and Bruins – and more.

Better yet, post your Boston Strong badassery on our Flickr page. Because this city rocks.
