Rock at the Government Center: Watch Dirty Bangs’ full Boston Calling performance


Boston rock band Dirty Bangs seem to be everywhere these days, from soundtracking an online Wrangler jeans commercial to showing up four times on the 2015 Boston Music Awards ballot.

For one Sunday afternoon in late September, however, they were in one place, and one place specifically: Boston Calling Music Festival.

Dirty Bangs’ sermon-like rock spectacle was pretty memorable, and now we have Aaron Eskeets of Meet Your Beat to remind us of all the goodness with a professionally shot, multi-angle video that captures their entire set. Meet Your Beat was responsible for the Infinity Girl video we posted last week, and if you’ve ever lost your head at ZuZu or Middlesex Lounge, chances are you’ve gazed longingly into his visual talents.

“Evan told me about Dirty Bangs early last year and I was eager to help out when he played some early demos,” Eskeets tells Vanyaland. “After projecting visuals and shooting a few songs at smaller venues, I jumped at the opportunity to record them on a stage they rightfully deserved. I only intended on posting a song or two but the footage inspired me to put it all together for everyone to enjoy.”

Watch the full 25-minute video below, and mark your calendars: Boston Calling returns to City Hall Plaza on May 27, 28, and 29 of next year. Just in time to fall in love with the summertime once again.
