#301: Digging Your Scene - Roundtable Discussion on Boston in the 90s

October 18, 2016

In the spring we hosted a roundtable on the Chicago music scene of the 1990s, so for our next “Digging Your Scene” episode, we decided to head to Boston, the home of the Pixies, Dinosaur Jr., Belly, Buffalo Tom, Morphine, The Lemonheads, Juliana Hatfield, Letters to Cleo, Sebadoh, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and many more. To help us on our quest to figure out what made Boston such a vibrant city for alternative/independent music in the 1990s, we’re joined by a trio of Boston music vets:

Aaron Perrino - leader singer/guitarist of The Sheila Divine, who released their 4th album The Morbs in October 2015

Kay Hanley - lead singer of Letters to Cleo (and much more), who just released a new EP Back to Nebraska via their Pledgemusic campaign

Keith Sawyer - DJ at 88.1 WMBR at MIT in Cambridge, MA since 1996
