Massachusetts five-piece, DOM, received a tremendous amount of hype almost immediately after forming in 2009, signing to Astralwerks and collaborating with Gucci Mane on a remix of the band's single, "Living in America." Despite the group's bro-tastic, lo-fi jangle pop that is more aligned with Passion Pit than commercial hip-hop, the group members do share many characteristics with the aforementioned genre - preferring vapid lyrics that rhyme to anything particularly poignant or heartfelt, calling out other bands in interviews as posers and admittedly churning out hits they recognize as catchy tunes that will garner them fame but are by no means quality. DOM's 2010 EP furthered its popularity as the "it" band of the moment and the group subsequently embarked on its first world tour.
Bradley Nowell, lead singer/songwriter for the seminal band Sublime, may have died prematurely, but the soul-filled music he wrote for Sublime lives on because of Badfish: A Tribute To Sublime. The members met while attending the University of Rhode Island in 2001; five years after Nowell's passing. The trio plays all of Sublime's timeless songs like "Santeria" and "Wrong Way." When the members of Badfish feel the urge to write original songs they perform them in the group Scotty Don't.
This annual event draws thousands to Lighthouse Point Park from November through the start of the new year to marvel at the spectacular array of light displays throughout the park. Drive through the park past waving snowmen, teddy bears having snowball wars, or elves frolicking in and out of the dazzling imagery that sets the tone for the winter holiday season. This is the perfect activity to start an annual tradition for all ages.
