Next Stop, Boston: Watch Hozier take ‘Saturday Night Live’ to church last night

It feels like only yesterday that Hozier played a packed-out Red Room at Cafe 939. The Irish soul singer has vaulted into Next Big Thing status since that May gig on Boylston Street, and last night’s authentic performance on Saturday Night Live only reinforced those claims.

So what’s next? Well, dude’s got two Boston performances on the horizon, one a bit easier to get into (at the moment) than the other.

Hozier takes to the Paradise Rock Club for a very sold-out show on Halloween (good luck with that one), then returns to Boston for a headlining gig at the House of Blues on March 4. The HOB gig also looks sold out, though there are re-seller tickets available via the Live Nation site starting at $83.

You might get taken to the cleaners on the way to church, but we all worship things in our own personal way.

Watch the SNL clips below (up next week: Iggy Azalea) and dig out that checkbook…
