“Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” celebrates seventh birthday at Great Scott 1.27

Best known for fab drag performances, rowdy demeanor, and ripping DJs, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Boston’s monthly “Queer party for everyone”, is turning seven years old, marking itself as Boston’s longest running queer party with over eighty-five parties to date. This month’s D.A.D.T is billed at Allston’s Great Scott, and boasts performances by several guest DJs, including Ickarus and Hannah Lou, as well as a “star studded drag show”. For those looking for an exciting night this weekend, think of the official slogan of D.A.D.T- All are welcome who welcome all.

Blue Ray goes insane on “GrubHub”

Blue Ray is the frenetic, kooky outlet of musician Johnny Steines, the lone creative mind behind BR’s ninth release, GrubHub. Grubhub is an amalgamation of abstract indie weirdness, a collection of lofi tunes that presumably rattled around in Steines’ brain minutes before being recorded and bounced. It’s part Guided by Voices, part Wire, and part Pavement, exhibiting Steines’ unique relationship with each band's niche, whether it be GBV’s touch-and-go recording approach, Wire’s arty sensibilities, or Pavement’s juvenile hyperactiveness. It’s these types of releases that can reveal raw creative intuition from its creator, where more often than not, the album serves as a real time transcript of the process. GrubHub is both insane and clever, and it deserves a listen or two. Stream it below. -Charley Ruddell

Don’t miss the new gnarly space rock EP from The Rupert Selection

Boston’s post-rock trio The Rupert Selection are one of the few bands in New England that can mash hard, progressive rock and ambient space noodles into a signature sound. Their newest EP Modern Playground Medicine, plays out like a soundtrack to a space-age action movie; it’s one part blistering, jagged rock and roll, one part ambient weirdness. The trio somehow manage to channel hard/space rock bands like Quicksand and Failure while simultaneously displaying their influence in the landscapes of Stanley Kubrick, ultimately showcasing an effortless comfortability within their own unique vision. Get sucked into the vacuum of Modern Playground Medicine below. -Charley Ruddell
