(Photo by bostinno.streetwise.com) Socially Scene Reviewed ... This past weekend, Bos- ton hosted its third edition of our unique version to an outdoor music festival, Boston Calling and Socially Scene was on site. The weekend event was held in the Government Center Plaza, a space suit- able for fans to pack in and still have room to roam. For all that spend their week days rushing through the plaza let me paint you a pic- ture in case you missed the show. The setup was perfection; you could only enter at the bottom of the steps across from the Haymarket train station So the crew was able to keep order yet there were numerous amounts of exits so when youhad had enough festival fun, it wasn't an aggravating cluster of stand still. Even with the major recon- struction going on, the stage placement wasn't a problem. For all who have never at- tended :the flow of the day consists from one act per- forming on the "Red Stage" to the next on the "Blue Stage" and so on. Each is set across from each other so fans can just turn right around in between acts without ever having to relocate. For the concert goers look- ing for a bit more relaxed scene, there was a VIP pack- age available. Roped off were the steps going up and to the City Hall platform that had an actual Sam Adams bar, tables strained around and a clear overview of the whole plaza. Boston Calling got under- way on Friday night and wel- comed bands like Future Is- lands, Neutral Milk Hotel and The National closing out the evening. Saturday was an all-day fest starting off with St. Nothing, Cliff Light, S. Carey 2:15 pm, just to name a few. By the time Saturday evening rolled around Mother Nature threw the Boston Calling staff a curve ball. It wasn't just a little rain headed their way but a full out thunder and light- ning storm. Fans were ushered back in to see the evening's head- line act Lorde, the dead sprint to the stage was quite the site to see. It was great to know that the city handled its first major mu- sic festival issue so well! The night ended with Child- ish Gambino and very happy concert folk. Sunday's lineup started with; Gentlemen Hall, San Fermin, White Denim, Twenty-One Pilots and The 1975. Spoon and The Re- placements drew their own crowd, but anyone who pur- chased a ticket for that day was anticipating Nas and The Roots doing separate sets, as well as spending time on stage performing together. Both are very popu- lar acts, but to see them per- form together had fans in a frenzy! Finishing off the Sep- tember edition with such a night had the fans excited for Matt@o Gallo Appraisals Sales & Rentals Real Estate 376 North Street Boston, MA 02113 (617) 523-2100 Fax (617) 523-3530 May 2015. 44 Communications stepped up an already popu- lar event, Each edition has more to offer than just mu- sic~ This one was the best yetwith a grassed area at the top of the Government Cen- ter steps on the Faneuil Hall side. Many locals enjoyed taking a seat in a lawn chair and watching Sunday's Pa- triots game on a big screen in an area that is spent rushing with that morning coffee. There was an Alex and Ani tent, rock and roll photo booths, a banner painted with the Boston sky- line where you were able to make your own art on a com- plimentary pennant and an addition every festival should have; a traveling water foun- tain that was FREE courtesy of Quenchbuggy.com.

Enamel Kingdom is known for his organically crafted work on found ob- jects, and this showing will feature explorations of new methods and technique. Rusted, salvaged metal ob- jects and smooth glossed wood panels serve as back- drops for his paintings. Pow- erful animals stare back at the viewer. Fluid, black paint strokes are laid down using one Shot enamel with in- tense control and confi- dence, leaving no room for error. The pristine selection of hand treated wood allows their natural beauty to in- spire the artist.
