Friendly People / Doctor Doctor / Drunken Logic
Berklee Music Fest on Georges Island offers a free concert featuring three student groups with music ranging from indie rock to folk to blues. Drunken Logic draws from Death Cab for Cutie and the Who. Eleven Dollar Bills has been on NPR's "Here and Now," and Friendly People has performed at SXSW.
Drunken Logic: 2:00 p.m. - 2:50 p.m.
With a highly potent live show and songs that jump out of the speakers and resonate in your ears, Drunken Logic is one of the few bands that gets you to let loose and keeps you thinking about the music for days afterward. This earnest brand of indie rock combines the best aspects of Death Cab for Cutie, Frightened Rabbit, Foo Fighters, and the Who into a powerful concoction that delivers a sucker punch. Just when it seemed that the raw, youthful energy of the rock 'n' roll tradition and the honest emotion and thoughtfulness of the indie movement would never be reconciled, Drunken Logic serves as the exception to the rule.
Doctor Doctor: 3:00 p.m. - 3:50 p.m.
The good Doctors play loud, proud, and sometimes profound, rock and roll music on acoustic, and sometimes electric, instruments. DoctorDoctor is not comprised of two doctors. It is not comprised of one doctor and one non-doctor either. Having said that, Doctor Doctor is good for what ales you.
Friendly People: 4:00 p.m. - 4:50 p.m.
In a desperate search for warmth in the Boston winter of 2010-2011, a few friends—some old, some new—came together to see what would happen when they brought their musical tastes, talents, and trinkets into the same room. What started as a jam in a Cambridge, Massachusetts, living room has led to a recently released debut album, Shake, and a tour across the United States to perform at this year's South By Southwest Festival. With five minds and five million ideas, the result is Friendly People, folk-infused indie rock, hand-crafted to make you feel at home.
