Don’t look now, but 2019 is quickly coming to a close. So indie617 has decided to stack the deck and roll out a trio of +1 Series Shows to close out the year in style and volume.

Since April we’ve partied loudly all over town with Freezepop, Speedy Ortiz, Weakened Friends, and Potty Mouth, and now we roll into fall for a continued spotlight on the best bands to come out of Massachusetts.

And because we know everyone’s busy, we’re giving you options.

Join us:

Saturday, November 9 for our +1 Series Show with Beeef, the five-time 2019 Boston Music Awards nominee that released an incredible album called Bull In The Shade back in July (on the BMAs ballot: Unsigned Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year, and Alt/Indie Artist of the year, yowza!). The new Beeef LP is pure Boston guitar-pop goodness, full of sweet, jangly emotion, and we can’t wait to throw it down with Perry Eaton and the boys.

It goes down at Union Tavern in Somerville’s Union Square, the site of the former P.A.’s Lounge space.

Saturday, December 7 for our +1 Series Show with Future Teens, the four-time 2019 Boston Music Awards nominee — including Artist of the Year, Live Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year (!!!) — who have quickly become one of best bands in Boston, earning national acclaim. Their recent album Breakup Season has been celebrated by everyone from Stereogum to the Globe… to us! They call their sound “bummer-pop,” but we’re way too happy to have them lined up for this show.

We’ll be unveiling the venue for this show soon live on indie617.com…

Friday, December 20 for our Holiday +1 Series Show with The Gala and Rival Island. Whoa whoa whoa, hold up, a Free Show with TWO BANDS??!! Yeah bruh, the year’s been so good we had to end it with a BANG, and we’re doing it with two of our new favorite acts: The garage punk powderkeg they call The Gala, a band armed with maybe the best live show in town; and the smooth indie surf-pop of Rival Island, whose track “Steel Tide” has taken indie617 by storm. This doubles as our official holiday party, so deck your halls and get jolly as heck with these ace bands and the indie617 DJ squad.

We’ll be unveiling the venue for this show soon live on indie617.com…

We couldn’t have had such an incredible year without our listeners and supporters, so these three shows are dedicated to you. We hope to see you there.
