Boston Concert Update

While I don’t get out to as many shows as I’d like to, I still enjoy knowing what’s going on in (and around) the city on any given night. My Fridays are spent searching for new concerts to add to the calender, seeing which shows in the coming week still have tickets left, and checking which shows’ tickets go on sale in the near future.

I never listened to their 2007 effort Somewhere In Between, and I don’t listen to much ska nowadays, but I’m interested in hearing what covers these guys will do.

Look Mexico‘s video for “You Stay. I Go. No Following.” can be seen after the jump. To Bed To Battle, the band’s new full-length, is due out March 23rd via Suburban Home Records.
