about

Old Boston is dead. Perhaps no city's music scene has undergone such a frantic transformation over the past few years as our very own here in the hub of New England. What was once a stodgy rock-and-roll town swallowed up by its participants' mutual disdain for one another has given way to a community fostering relentless creativity and support. From the basements of Allston to the stages of Somerville, the clubs of Cambridge to the living rooms of Brighton, it seems like Boston as a whole is ready to become noticed as a cultural hotspot. And if it isn't, then fuck it, we still have an endless amount of awesome bands toiling right here in our backyards. Here are 13 of our favorite new acts — some born in 2012, others a year or two prior — that are ready to make a beautiful racket in 2013. We've even included bands from Worcester and Lowell, because Massachusetts as a whole has some really cool shit going on. -- Michael Marotta, the Phoenix/WFNX
