Ah, the technology! These days yours truly is rarely inspired by it – the chief problem being lack of human element. But what if…

What if there’s an app that adds an extra sauce to a much beloved ritual of going to shows and seeing live music? Shazam proved to be the answer and took guesswork out of the process of identifying the songs heard between the sets. So without further ado…here’s what was heard at O’Briens in Boston on June 23rd.

Pure XPure X has always been out of time, eternal—their airy, cavernous sound like sunlight through the waves. Formed in 2009 as a three-piece of Nate Grace, Jesse Jenkins V, and Austin Youngblood called Pure Ecstasy, their early singles, which hit the mainline of shoegaze, soul, doo-wop, and loner Americana, garnered immediate acclaim. Legal issues forced a name change to Pure X, whose bluntness and economy was perhaps more reflective of the band’s ability to cast a spell in under 3 minutes.
