The lineup of the Boston Calling festival has been announced, and fun., the National, the Shins and Of Monsters and Men are among the top-billed acts for the inaugural edition of the Beantown event, which runs May 25-26 at Boston’s City Hall Plaza.
M for Montreal on Friday and Saturday is more like a traditional music festival, such as SXSW and CMJ. Venues all over the city host shows that are open to the public as well as festival-goers, meaning it pays to show up early to an in-demand show.
Of Monsters and Men's breakout year continues -- and if you don't believe 2012 is the year of OMAM, check out their new 'Mountain Sound' video, which features the band performing live in front of the kind of massive crowd it's attracting more and more when playing live.
They hail from Iceland and have yet to release an album in the U.S., but Of Monsters and Men are selling out shows across the States and building up significant buzz before the official arrival of their debut, 'My Head is An Animal.' Singer/guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir tells straight.com that she and her five male bandmates, who began opening eyes when they won the 2010 battle of the bands at Músíktilraunir, are shocked by how fast they seem to be earning fans and sellout crowds.
