Makeout
with Story Untold, Hand Guns
Fusing propulsive punk energy, stadium-size pop prowess, alternative sizzle, and a ball-busting sense of humor, Makeout play the soundtrack to the best night of your life. Think of the MA quartetSam Boxold [vocals, guitar], Tyler Young [guitar], Alex Lofton [bass], and Scott Eckel [drums]as the illegitimate offspring of Paramore, All Time Low, and Steel Panther, and youll be halfway there. All comparisons aside, Sam sums up the groups 2017 full-length debut, The Good Life [Rise Records], bestThe record sounds like a party, exclaims the frontman. There are so many different influences touching it, but it doesnt feel like anybodys uncomfortable. Thats the kind of party we like! Whether or not the last statement is true, Sam and Tyler met each other as high schoolers in the Northeasts fertile underground music scene (we can confirm that for sure!). After a revolving door of projects, the two joined forces with Alex in Trophy Wives. The group built a serious local buzz, performing on the MA date of the Warped Tour and winning an Ernie Battle of The Bands judged by none other than iconic GRAMMY Award-nominated producer John Feldmann [blink-182, Good Charlotte, Sleeping With Sirens]. Impressed by the boys, the studio guru signed them to a production deal. Joined by Australian drummer Scott, they settled on a new moniker, Makeout, and holed up at Feldmanns home studio for a month in 2016 between dates supporting longtime heroes blink-182. Throughout this whirlwind, they collaborated with the likes of 5 Seconds of Summers Ashton Irwin and Calum Hood as well as legendary skinsman Travis Barker on what would become The Good Life.All of those influences are in the record, Alex goes on. Theres a diverse feel, because all of these people brought the best out of us.John kept us on our toes, Sam continues. One of the biggest influences I felt was from his lyrical attitude. Hell drive the flow of the vocalist in a very specific direction. He made my vocals sound a little more badass and real. It flowed in a way that there was never a stale moment.That holds true for all 12 songs. Childish bursts out of the gate on a guitar gallop punctuated by arena-ready percussion and an unshakable chant. We wanted to write a song about how it feels to be a kid, explains the singer. Its that freedom from jobs and bills. Theres not much drama. It touches on that.Meanwhile, the first single Crazy explodes into a massive refrain between hilarious hashtaggable admissions such as, Im in the studio in fucking Calabasas. The Kardashians live here and I cant go back to working at McDonalds. Cant afford any more of your Sephora addiction.Its a lighthearted take on girl trouble, Sam smiles. It could be extended to either gender. It resulted from a feel sesh talking about life.Wheres My Charger? surprises with a subtle twang, while Blast Off illuminates their knack for a hard-hitting and heavy hook. Ultimately, everything is a part of The Good Life Makeout encourageBeing in a band and doing this professionally is something weve all really wanted for a long time, Tyler leaves off. To us, this is The Good Life. We hope everyone gets to live their version of it.

Silent Disco x The Rockwell - 3 LIVE DJS!
What's This Party All About? If you love to dance, but you're over the nightclub scene, come to Dreamland Silent Disco's party at The Rockwell Theater in Somerville! This is a 21+ indoor event.  Tickets are $20 online or at the door. Limited early bird tickets available for $10.  Lighting by DJ Zati Productions.  Cash bar.   What Kind of Music Will You Be Playing? GREEN - DJ Zati // Throwbacks RED - DJ Jose // 2000s and Top 40 BLUE - DJ Shank // House What Is a Silent Disco? A silent disco, in the simplest sense, is a headphone dance party.  It solves all the problems of a typical dance party by creating a more comfortable and enjoyable user experience.  All music is transmitted wirelessly to headphones, so there are no loud noises to shout over; you can adjust your volume on the headsets so the music is always just right.  There are up to 3 stations of music to select on the headphones, so you never get tired of what's playing and can stay on the dance floor longer.  Dreamland's headphones also illuminate with LED colors that indicate station selection, so you can see what people around you are dancing to, and maybe connect with somebody new.  And finally, headphones are much more fun than speakers, as you will catch yourself laughing hard while watching people dance and sing with reckless abandon while no music plays.   What Should I Expect at a Dreamland Event? Check out a video of a recent party here.  Dreamland Silent Disco & Social Club is an inclusive, lighthearted event company that loves connecting communities and creating friendships.  Dreamland's parties are not so much about recreating a nightclub scene, but rather, our goal is for our guests to experience the joy of dancing in a comfortable, playful environment.   What Kinds of People Come to Dreamland Silent Disco & Social Club? The best kinds :) How Do I Use the Headphones? Check out our tutorial on Youtube here.  It will save time when you check in! What Should I Bring With Me to the Party? Your dancing shoes, comfortable clothes (we love sweaty dancers!), and a spare debit or credit card as collateral if you will be using one at the bar. ***A credit or debit card is required as collateral for use of EACH headset, and will be returned to you at the end of the evening upon the return of the headset. Please don't steal our headphones. They won't work at home.  By purchasing an admission ticket you agree to pay $100, charged to your card, if headphones are not returned by the end of the event.*** This Sounds Like the Dance Party I Never Knew I Always Wanted!  Can You Guys Come Over and Play At My House? Why, yes.  Yes we can!  Dreamland is available for all sorts of private events!  With Dreamland's battery-operated lighting and portable power, we specialize in creating events in outdoor and off-grid venues. Our equipment can be used for a range of purposes including after parties, weddings, backyard bashes, house parties, lectures, karaoke, fitness classes, singles mixers, mobile tours, party busses, and more, and is ideal for any venue that might need a low-to-no volume alternative.  More info on our website here.
