Last weekend, tens of thousands of music fans flocked to Boston’s City Hall Plaza to witness bands such as Modest Mouse, The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie and Jack Johnson play the spring 2014 Boston Calling Music Festival. The event has managed to grow even bigger and better every time, and this third installment was no exception. The addition of a Friday night lineup this year made for a whole weekend of nonstop music, which included stellar performances from Sonicbids acts such as The Head and the Heart, Walk Off the Earth and our Boston Calling contest winner, The Box Tiger.
We recently announced that Toronto-based indie rock band The Box Tiger was selected through Sonicbids to play Boston Calling Music Festival this weekend. Even though the band has only been playing together for four years and released their first full-length album, Set Fire, last August, they’re quickly making waves in both Canada and the US. The Box Tiger has already opened for well-known acts such as Metric, Foster the People and The Joy Formidable, and we’re thrilled to watch their career unfold as they gain even more fans at Boston Calling this Sunday.
We caught up with The Box Tiger to find out what they’re looking forward to most about the fest, how they’ve built their fanbase without the help of a manager or booking agent, and what the future has in store for them.
The female-fronted group is quickly gaining attention in the U.S. with their thoughtful, catchy and unique sounds. These talented performers will be sharing their rockin’, original music at the festival along with some of today’s hottest music innovators, including Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists and Modest Mouse.
