DS Photo Gallery: Oh The Humanity, Tiny Stills, KCUF and Brook Pridemore – Cambridge, MA

Almost unarguably, one of the best parts of living in the greater Boston area is the small, passionate community of people working hard and on an independent level to continue to provide an outlet for artists, musicians and creators of all shapes and sizes. There’s been a lot of hand-wringing about the seemingly endless gentrification across the area and the resulting demise of smaller, independent venues, but I’ll be damned if there aren’t some inspiring people and places keeping the scene’s heart pumping strong. Take Charlie’s Kitchen, for example. The two-floor , diner-style burger joint nestled away in Cambridge’s Harvard Square plays host to live music on Monday nights, featuring bills curated by Rebuilder‘s Daniel Carswell, always chock full of  solo troubadours and great local and national indie rock and punk bands.

Such was the scene last Monday, when Los Angeles’ Tiny Stills came to town to kick off a run down the east coast that ended with an appearance at Fest in Gainesville. The (I guess we’re calling them) power-pop quartet anchored by singer-songwriter Kailynn West are still on the road in support of their new album Laughing Into The Void, which is one of the catchiest and important albums of 2018 — more on that in the future. They were joined on this night by fellow Fest-ers Oh The Humanity!, the local five-piece who play a particularly shred-worthy metal-infused brand of skate punk that would make bands like A Wilhelm Scream proud. Local project KCUF – Ken and Chris’s Undecided Franchise – played second on this night. While they’re still a relatively new collective, the members are scene vets instantly recognizable from other outlets like Loser’s Circle and Coffin Salesman and OC45 and The Radicals and Live Nude Girls and Back Door Key and probably like 800 other projects I’m forgetting. Boston is a delightfully incestuous place sometimes. Kicking things off was Brook Pridemore, who himself was wrapping up a fairly lengthy run before heading home to Brooklyn. Calling Pridemore a “solo acoustic folk punk” act probably does a disservice to both Brook Pridemore and to your boilerplate solo acoustic folk punks. There’s doom metal and dark humor and fuzzed out guitars and synth pedals (or whatever) and a bunch of other ingredients thrown in the blender in a way that makes Pridemore a unique performer.

It’s nights like these filled with bands out grinding that keep the scene alive. And at Charlie’s, it happens every Monday. Head below to catch our full photo rundown, and stay tuned for more.

Oh The Humanity! offer free download of new song “Stay Pissed”

Massachusetts punks Oh The Humanity! have released a politically charged new song titled “Stay Pissed.” Here’s what the band had to say about the track, which you can stream and/or download for free below:

“In the spirit of the movement to organize against police brutality and misuse of power we decided to record and release this song on its own. Like some of us, you or someone you love may have been brutalized, harassed, intimidated, or disrespected by a law enforcement official. The very people whose job it is to protect us. This isn’t to say that all Cops are bad or evil, they aren’t, but now is the time to make our voices heard and let the world know that we aren’t going to take abuse from our protectors anymore. Here’s our contribution.”

Oh The Humanity! released their debut full-length Carry Me Home earlier this year. If you wanna check that out, it’s available to stream/purchase on their Bandcamp page.
