Boston Calling Announces Blank Canvas Contest

A little over a week ago, the organizers of Boston Calling announced the launch of Blank Canvas, a contest inviting all interested artists to create a concept for a 36 x 60” mural that will then create and put on display during the fall festival session (September 5-7). Five winners will be chosen from the submissions, receiving $1000 cash (including $250 for supplies) and four 3-day VIP tickets to the Boston Calling, in addition to the vast exposure their designs will receive at the festival.


According to a press release, the idea for this contest came about after brainstorming different ways of trying to utilize the talents of all artists (not just musicians) in the activities at Boston Calling. “We are always seeking ways to extend our connection to the community and further celebrate the talents of the people that make Boston, and the entire region vibrant,” says Brian Appel, co-founder of Boston Calling, in the release.  “At this past May’s festival, every time we saw a blank wall, we felt we missed an opportunity to have an artist display their work.”


All interested applicants must submit their designs via an 8.5 x 11” digital document no later than August 5, 2014. A full list of contest rules and regulations--and info about September's concert lineup--can be found here.

BOSTON: Gentlemen Hall has your Summer Anthem

There's an irresistable alternative sound bite coming out of the Boston band Gentlemen Hall - it's called "Sail Into the Sun", and it's the first single off their upcoming full-length. They've been named "Best Act" by the Boston Phoenix in 2012, and they've shared the stage with a number of big names. Their synth-pop sound likens them to other popular electro artists coming out of the area right now - but these guys have a unique add-on to their stage presence and sound. Their 6-piece band includes a flute/piccolo player. So, lovers of wind instruments and catchy synth-pop - you've met your match. - Hillary Anderson
