THE FENWAY RECORDINGS SESSIONS is excited to announce its 200th session, and the next show in the MTV Artist to Watch Live in Boston series. On Sunday, January 27th, TEGAN AND SARA will be at Brighton Music Hall for an extremely intimate performance leading into the release of their upcoming album, Heartthrob, which will be out two days later, Tuesday, Jan. 29th.
The MTV Artist to Watch Live in Boston series, a collaboration between MTV, The Fenway Recordings Sessions and Brighton Music Hall, is an expansion of MTV Hive's Live from Webster Hall series which has featured artists such as The National, The Black Keys, and Florence and the Machine. Shows in these series are filmed and streamed live online at MTVhive.com. Tegan and Sara will be the third Boston show in the series, which began last March with Cloud Nothings and continued this past December with Alt-J. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 17 at 10am via Ticketmaster.
The Fenway Recordings Sessions, which began in 2004, has been involved with some of the most exciting live music to come through Boston in the past 8+ years. Artists such as Of Monsters and Men, Ellie Goulding, MGMT, Yeasayer, Echo and the Bunnymen, Diplo, Two Door Cinema Club, Alt-J, The Ghost of a Saber Toothed Tiger, Editors, Cold War Kids and Dum Dum Girls have all played the series, which has spanned venues from the House of Blues to The Paradise to TT The Bears to Great Scott. Today, most shows happen at Brighton Music Hall, but 2013 also marks the first time the series will present shows at the Middle East Upstairs and Berklee's Cafe 939. In recent years, the series expanded beyond the city limits to New York, where we presented DJ Sets at the ACE Hotel from members of Freelance Whales, We Are Scientists, HAIM, Amazing Baby, and VHS or Beta, among others. The collaboration with MTV Hive on the Live in Boston series is the most recent and exciting development in The Fenway Recordings Sessions, which we look forward to continuing for many more shows.
Here's to the next 200!
