  • Cafe Pintxos
    The standout among the cold tapas is the ensalada de pulpo, a small mound of chopped tomato and octopus in a bracingly tart, citrusy marinade. There is hummus, flavored with red pepper and artichoke but still, you know, hummus. Hummus might be a few hundred miles outside authentic tapas...

  • Florence + the Machine at the Pageant
    The crowd shrieked and screamed at every move behind the black curtain as the stage was set for Florence + the Machine. The noise reached a fever pitch when the band built to a frenzy before the curtain dropped to reveal a black-lit backdrop of flowers and birds. Bird cages housed light bulbs...

  • Of Montreal at the Luminary Center for the Arts
    It seems as though Athens, Georgia's Of Montreal and Independence Day (the holiday, not the movie) shouldn't jive. July 4th is brimming with conservative values, and the band's transgender obsessed schizo-disco lives on the most westward tip of the left wing. But as a celebration of freedom and...

  • Quincy Street Bistro
    Don't try to tell me you don't love buffalo-chicken dip, that molten stew of cheese and vinegar-laced hot sauce, the very few pieces of chicken suspended therein a seemingly incidental reminder of the dish's origin.

    Nobody tell Nic Cage, but Eddie Vedder's voice is basically a national treasure at this point. It's the voice that launched a thousand alt-rock vocalists, those of Creed and Fuel least notable on the list. And when it comes to shows with the level of intimacy created last night at the Fox, it's...
