The three day outdoor music festival welcomed some of the hottest touring acts to the city over the Memorial Day Weekend. The concerts started that Friday night and the main act of the evening was a grassroots favorite, Jack Johnson. With his boyish good looks, stunning smile and a guitar, Jack Johnson had the 30 something crowd from the second he took the stage. Johnson with a new album released has had many #1 hits and his loyal fans were in attendance; they were all you could hear singing along during some of the songs. Saturday was an all-day event with acts hitting the stage at 1 p.m. The day fea- tured; Walk Off the Earth, Warpaint, Jenny Lewis and more. Death Cab for Cutie closed the night, yet it was the 7:00 pm slot of "The Head & The Heart" that the crowd had been anticipating. The well rounded band included a female vocalist/guitarist also bass, drum, keyboard and that handsome multi- talented front man that had all the ladies' attention. Sunday was the final day and the lineup was what most had been waiting for. The day started off with The Box tiger followed by the The Districts and, Built to Spill just to name a few. It was Bastille and Brand New that lead up to the final act and headliner for the festival, "Modest Mouse." By the time they had taken the stage the Plaza area hadn't a spot to spare. The band currently has a few hits on the charts and their stage performance is a fan favorite making it a no brainer to close out the festival. This is the second year the Boston Calling Music Festi- val has taken place and is clearly gaining exposure as the numbers in attendance continue to grow. It is a three-day music festival held at Government City Hall Plaza and organized by 44 Communications Company. The music featured has a focus on grassroots, funk and all around feel good vibe. Throughout the festival you could see the age change along with the bands from right to left with each time slot switching from the "Red Stage" to the "Blue Stage." There were teenag- ers snuggled up in circles right on the pavement, fami- lies with children and from the VIP section that was on the City Hall stairs, you could even spot out middle aged couples dancing to the catchy tunes as if they were back at Woodstock. The event was host to more than just music. Lining the inside of the miles of fences to rope off the festival were food trucks, Alex and Ani, beer gardens, Boston Calling merchandise for sale, Uber and more. This event is Boston's own version of the popular and growing outdoor music festival scene begin- ning to make a new name for itself. The Boston Calling to take place will be on Septem- ber 5% 6th and 7th again at City Hall Plaza. Some of the acts to make the trip will be The National, Lorde NAS and The Roots just to name a few.
