Boston local band The Life Electric recently celebrated the release of their second full length album “The Real You” with a triumphant show at local hot spot Great Scott. For The Life Electric the last few years have been a progression, from their start in 2011 as an up and coming local act, to their current status as one of Boston’s most popular local acts.
From opening for national touring acts such as Neon Trees and Crash Kings, to playing the main stage of local festivals like Harvard Square Oktoberfest and rocking out at the city’s landmark local showcase Rock N’ Rumble, anyone familiar with the local music scene in Boston is also familiar with the name The Life Electric. Catchy hooks, and arena worthy choruses reminiscent of the alternative rock boom of the 1990’s make the band a local favorite.
Their live performance drives home what has granted them such a strong local presence. With an outstanding live energy and stage presence, The Life Electric invigorate every room in which they play.
One of the best parts about the band is that you won’t need to pay arena prices and ticket fees to see them. Playing countless free shows, and low budget bar gigs, The Life Electric exist to bring their music to the people, but that by no means indicates that you’ll be short changed, their live performance is still just as tight, if not tighter than that of many national touring acts on the circuit today.
Their longevity in the local music scene is not something to take lightly either, as many bands have come and gone in the time the Life Electric have been around. Working their way up through the ranks of the Boston music scene the band have earned their place in the city’s hearts as one of the strongest local bands in the mix.
