Welcome to the Boston.com Music Club!
Our first performer is self-proclaimed “shape-shifting singer-songwriter” Adi Sun.
It’s been a tough two years for Boston’s music community, but things are starting to look up. Concert halls large and small have reopened. Local and national artists are booking more shows than they are canceling, and music fans are cautiously venturing out to experience live music. It’s a time of both transition and celebration, so in the spirit of reintroducing you to Boston’s vibrant music scene, we present to you the Boston.com Music Club.
What to know about the Boston.com Music Club
Each month we will come together to enjoy a live performance and chat with a local artist. The initial plan is to gather virtually and then eventually gather in person. Like you, we love everything about Boston’s music scene, from the live spaces to the people who play there to the music they make. So we look forward to returning to these spaces with you and enjoying the music together.
If you’re a long-time Boston.com reader, some of these items might ring a bell. From 2012 to 2018, Boston.com was the home of RadioBDC, Boston’s original alternative streaming radio station. RadioBDC Living in the lab series and RadioBDC Sessions has spotlighted dozens of local and national artists, and the Boston.com Music Club will make that light shine even brighter. Plus, the Music Club will give us all a space to come together, share and discuss the music we discover.
I am in a unique position to lead these discussions, having spent the majority of my 25 years in broadcast media working at Boston radio and witnessing the evolution of the Boston music scene. I cut my teeth as an undergrad at Northeastern’s WRBB, worked on legendary Boston alt-rock radio stations WFNX and WBCN, and helped start RadioBDC, which I then helped guide it into its current form, indie617. The common thread in all of this? My passion for music. The only thing I love more than discovering music, new and old, is sharing it…brilliantly. I currently do this weekdays from 11am-4pm on Boston’s ROCK 92.9, and look forward to doing even more through the Boston.com Music Club.
Who is the first guest?
Adi Sun is a trans singer-songwriter from Boston. After making a name for himself fronting Boston shoegaze band Phenomenal Sun in the 2010s, Adi made a post-transition pivot as a solo artist. In a short time, she’s released three singles, earned two Boston Music Award nominations, and was recently named keynote speaker at New England’s premier trans community event of 2022. We think Adi is a great example of what’s new and exciting in Boston music. scene in 2022. And we think you will too.
So join us virtually on Wednesday March 30 at 8 p.m. for a live performance and conversation with Adi Sun as we launch the Boston.com Music Club!
