On the weekend of May 22, Boston Calling Music Festival returned for their annual spring concert.
The second day of the festival opened with Krill, who answered a couple of questions asked by the audience. They were very open and friendly. Marina and the Diamonds came at about 6 p.m., opening things up with their single “Bubblegum Bitch.” Marina was dressed in a purple halter-top, a pair of matching pants, and a purple headband that lit up with the word ‘Froot’, which is the name of their newest album. There was also a big, life-sized apple on the side of the stage. Marina then asked the audience for some help wishing one of her bandmates a happy birthday by singing to him. They closed with one of their famous hit “How To Be a Heartbreaker.”
My Morning Jacket closed the night. Frontman Jim James was dressed in a colorful poncho-like top. They brought a festival-friendly rock music to the festival. Some of the songs played were “In Its Infancy (The Waterfall),” where their drum set was plastered with a hologram of a scenic waterfall. They also played “Circuital” and closed with “Touch Me I’m Going to Scream, Part 2.” Throughout the night James referred to the city of Boston as a beautiful and humble place.
It will be held on the weekend of Sept. 25-27. Two exciting artists scheduled to play are Hozier and Of Monsters and Men.
