Paper Route

Vinyl at Hard Rock Hotel, Oct. 27

Opening for the acclaimed act Switchfoot is no easy task. But the Nashville, Tenn.-based Paper Route made it look easy. With captivating front man J.T. Daly at the helm, Paper Route delivered a solid and lively performance to a dialed-in crowd. Performing tracks off their new album, The Peace of Wild Things, including “Better Life,” and new single “You and I” as well as fan favorites “Gutter” and “Dancing on Our Graves,” the group spanned their catalog of songs and made the most of their opening set. The only thing that could have made the evening better was if the band were headlining. ★★★☆☆

Dinner and a Laugh


Dinner and a Laugh

By Jason Scavone

There have been plenty of famously unusual spots to find stand-up comedy over the years: Boston’s hot spot in the ’80s was the Chinese restaurant Ding Ho, which counted Steven Wright, Lenny Clarke and Bobcat Goldthwait among its illustrious alumni. So sticking a comedy show in Artisan’s Mood restaurant? Sure, why not. The space itself is intimate and dark, the ceilings are low and the audience in the first couple of rows are practically sitting onstage. In other words: It’s perfect for comedy.
