The Backseat Lovers are an absolute staple in the indie rock genre. With hit albums When We Were Friends and Elevator Days, the four young adults in the band help define indie rock, and are truly one of the bands that the indie rock fan community (myself included) prides themselves on most.
With a beautifully eloquent stage, the quartet hit the stage at 9:30 Club recently.

Sammy Brue has been called an “American prodigy” by Rolling Stone and, well, that feels like an understatement. The 18-year-old Utah-based artist put out two EPs before he was 14, his first LP, I Am Nice, by 16 and is on the edge of releasing a new album on venerable New West Records, home to many artists whom he has performed with and who call themselves fans, including Justin Townes Earle.

Since the first time I caught The Aces at All Things Go last year, I’ve become a huge fan. Katie Henderson, McKenna Petty, and Alisa and Cristal Ramirez took to Union Stage to an uproar of their fans cheering and excited for their sold-out show recently.
