Show Crush: The Dirty Bombs / Pomegranates / The Figurines at Brighton Music Hall Friday

August 18, 2011

Tomorrow night Boston supergroup The Dirty Bombs will grace the stage (and superb sound system) of the Brighton Music Hall with their presence. It is a usual trajectory for songwriters to work in a collaborative group which becomes successful, then break up and start solo projects that are shadows of their former work. This band is the opposite, where frontmen of groups at the top of their game have united to work together. The chemistry is beyond doubt. Right out of the gate they have put on great shows. They were recognized as one of the best acts in town almost immediately after putting out their first recording. Sometimes I think that the sound of this band is something like what would happen if the New Order songwriting machine worked with some really accomplished vocalists. That said, they have a sound that is uniquely their own. Their track “In Every City” was the subject of a C.D. on Songs post, from which the track can be downloaded for a taste of what they will be doing at the show.

They will be followed by Cincinnati’s Pomegranates and Denmark’s The Figurines.

This show was originally scheduled for June 10 but was changed due to Visa issues. The venue has indicated that all original tickets will be honored.
