This is going to be a super night of righteous tuneage from some of Boston's grooviest musicians. Doors are at 8, music starts at 9. Come early. Eat food. Drink drinks. Stay late. We're gonna have a good time.
Field Day formed proverbially, in a basement, and unexpectedly, when its members were well into middle age. Joan Anderman was a neophyte, having left her longtime post as rock critic at The Boston Globe and set out to become a songwriter. Her former Globe colleague Dan Zedek, veteran of numerous college bands, was sitting on a stash of songs written in his head while riding the train to work. Dans friend John Kehe, also a prolific tunesmith, offered his gear-filled basement for weekend song circles. The chemistry was potent. These songs and these songwriters belonged together. With the addition of bassist Phil Magnifico, Field Day became unlikely upstarts in the Boston club scene, playing rock music with scrappy hooks, dreamy harmonies, and irrepressible spirit.
and its eponymous debut album is a lush, often darkly passionate mix of vocal-and-lyric-driven 60s and 70s-inspired rock, with two lead voices blending beautifully. The bands name reflects their musical inspirations, as well as the dualistic notion of love as both a saving grace and a dark passion. When pressed for style and genre, Toppin and Riordan say simply, Its rock. But it is the undeniable blend of their two voices that distinguishes them. That, and their songwriting. Both have serious writing chops, writes Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald. Unlike many of their musical generation, Riordan and Toppin are not comfortable simply reeling in the years. Though fond of their youthful, angst-fueled days, they are comfortable in their own skins and are very happy producing a more mature and complex version of their alt/indie ethos.
