What’s Included

“With a massive musical stroke, Boston Calling not only packed City Hall Plaza with 18 worthy alternative rock acts,” wrote The Improper Bostonian of Boston Calling’s inaugural installment earlier this year, “but positioned itself as a virtual new venue on the Hub’s landscape.” On September 7 and 8, the festival is back, with an eclectic all-star lineup taking to the stage in the heart of the city. And to usher in the fun: Better Than Backstage, Gilt City’s epic kickoff party, featuring a lively crowd, a stylish venue, cocktails and bites, and a live performance by cult indie-rock favorite Okkervil River, who’ll be part of Saturday’s festival lineup.

In addition to Okkervil River, Saturday’s program ranges from the upbeat, Afropop-inflected rock of Vampire Weekend to the indie pop of Natasha Khan’s Bat for Lashes. You’ll hear also L.A.-based Local Natives, whose debut album Pitchfork.com said was filled with “rustic and yearning vocals, three-part harmonies, clattering percussion, wiggly guitar leads, euphoric chanting, and a Talking Heads cover.”

Come back Sunday to get your synth-rock fix from Passion Pit; catch Diplo-produced DJ act Major Lazer (described by Pitchfork as “hip-hop and reggae are also smashed into one freaky, juiced up mutant”); take in Kendrick Lamar, (whomSpin magazine has written, “On a purely technical level, he might be the best of his generation”); and enjoy the sultry stylings of Solange.

Boasting a stone fireplace, gorgeous velvet couches, stunning chandeliers and textured wall coverings, The Estate is an extraordinary party destination. Located in a renovated two-level theater in the heart of Boston’s Theater District, the space exudes elegance and luxury. The celebrity-sprinkled hotspot is home to seventeen bottle-service tables, four separate bars, a full-size stage complete with theater lighting and an enormous dance floor. It has been lauded in local publications like the Boston Globe, Boston.com and The Improper Bostonian. Once you’ve partied here, you’ll see why.
