lovelovelove: Bleached, Porcelain Raft, and Smith Westerns…what a dreamy gig!

Last weekend I went to Boston to visit friends, and I found out two of my favorite bands were in town: Porcelain Raft and Smith Westerns. I went to see them, and found another band to love. The opening band Bleached absolutely rocked. I was so excited to see Porcelain Raft play one of his first shows after releasing his incredible debut album Strange Weekend. Everyone there, whether they have heard of Porcelain Raft before or not, could not help but dance. He was fantastic live, and it was awesome to see him perform with a live drummer as well. Smith Westerns were also awesome as usual, they always have so much energy when they play and it’s contagious. Porcelain Raft is now touring the UK with M83 (another favorite of mine), so make sure you get to the show if there is one near you! Definitely buy Porcelain Raft’s Strange Weekend, it’s already one of my favorite albums of 2012!
