The Fenway – February Music Spotlight
From huge, loud touring acts to local acoustic songwriters, there’s something musical happening in The Fenway every day of the week. We’ll keep you up to date on the latest shows and events. Here are some highlights from this month’s schedule.
February 8 – House of Blues
With his intriguingly crude intonation and catchy choruses on hit tracks like “Trap Queen,” “679” and “My Way,” Paterson, New Jersey’s Willie Maxwell (aka Fetty Wap) still seems to rule the airwaves following last year’s debut album. Catch Fetty as his “Welcome to the Zoo” tour makes a stop at the House of Blues.
February 12 – Berklee Performance Center
Introduced to many as an actor in the acclaimed “City of God” and perhaps best known as the seafaring troubadour covering Bowie songs in Wes Anderson’s “The Life Aquatic,” Seu Jorge’s musical catalogue extends far beyond his cinematic career. Hear for yourself as Seu Jorge stops by the BPC for a rare and intimate performance.
February 26 – Museum of Fine Arts
The New Fabric of Sound
We lost another great Boston band to NYC when Quilt up and moved to the Big Apple. After two great records on the hot, hot Mexican Summer label and a new one on the way, Quilt returns to their breeding ground of sound for a special show at the Remis Auditorium at the MFA.
February 27 – House of Blues
Same Road, Different Vehicle
After 6 years co-writing songs with the Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell amicably left the group in 2007 to pursue a solo career—and with fans like Bruce Springsteen and John Prine and an album that premiered at #1 on the Billboard charts, things seem to be going pretty well. With five studio records and two live albums already under his belt, Isbell brings his intriguing show of Americana to the House of Blues with like-minded up-and-comers Shovels and Rope. Get your tickets early!
February 28 – House of Blues
The First of the Month…Almost
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Tha Crossroads,” a classic hip-hop anthem and tribute to producer and friend Easy E, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are taking it back to the streets (with a live band nonetheless) to prove they still have the fastest flow and most melodic delivery in hip-hop history.
