Stretching Out

Betsy Wells is a band of boys just getting some distance from their teenage years, but youth and young manhood belie the band's rapid maturation. Led by guitarist and lead vocalist Jordan Smith, the band is set to release its second EP, The Calm, as a Friday night show at the Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St. “We all just freshly turned 21,” Smith says over beers at the Pizza Shoppe in...

Summer Music Preview: 311

“We were toiling away in the underground for so long, we were ready for the attention. It’s so different now with the Internet. Some viral video will happen so quickly that the group gets a bunch of attention, but they aren’t ready for it.

Back and Forth

The Foo Fighters have played to massive crowds, won Grammys, received platinum albums and have even turned down an opportunity to have a song featured on “Glee.” So why record their latest album, Wasting Light, in a garage? “When you’ve been a band for this long, you start to form certain habits and you need to fall out of those habits,” bassist Nate Mendel said, calling from Seattle....
