Photos: What You Missed at Boston Calling 2019
The tenth edition of the music-and-food festival has arrived.
On Day 3, temperatures soared, as fans took in performances from Brandi Carlile, Tufts alums Guster, Travis Scott, and more.
Anyone expecting to hear Boston Calling’s Sunday comedy headliner Michael Che offer some controversial commentary on Boston, as he is wont to do, would have been disappointed by his set. His appearance at the festival’s arena stage was pretty low key, save for several minutes of banter with a heckler named Amber, who had a lot to say to the performer and didn’t mind walking right up to the front of the stage to do it. Che rolled with the many interruptions from the presumably inebriated fan, but near the end of his time acknowledged that things had not gone well in his eyes, comparing his experience at Boston Calling to bad sex he couldn’t wait to tell people about.
Day 2 of Boston Calling brought performances from Mitski, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Hozier, and headliner Tame Impala.
Has it really been ten Boston Callings already? As of this weekend, we’ve reached that milestone. The first of three days of music, grub, and beers began on Friday at the Harvard Athletic Complex with headliner Twenty One Pilots. Here are the bands, the antics, and the looks that you missed so far:
