Change is in the air. As leaves start to fall and chills find their way up the spine, your taste buds may be signaling they're ready for something new.
This year, we can give 'em some action thanks to a new guy in town, Samuel Adam's Harvest Pumpkin Ale. It's the first ever pumpkin ale to be added to Sam Adam's mix of fall favorites, and with eleven pounds of real pumpkin per barrel, these guys aren't messing around. Radiant amber in color, it offers hints of cinnamon and brown sugar with a caramel finish amongst a harvest of spices that might just put your grandma's pumpkin pie to shame.

The name Original Sin may not sound too familiar to those who know their Drum & Bass, but when it becomes apparent that he is the other half of G Dub (the world famous Jump Up Drum & Bass DJs) it would be wise to take notice.
G Dub should be a household name to all Drum & Bass fans, but for those not in the know, here's the rundown: Adam Tindall at one time made up one half Generation Dub, along with Jake Carter. After reaching the highest echelon's of DJing, the two decided to separate, and Tindall took on the new name Original Sin.
Since Adam Tindall has branched out on his own, he has gained notoriety (and exclusive bookings) all throughout the world. Fortunately for Bostonians, he will be spinning at the very intimate Phoenix Landing, in what will surely be one of the better memorable nights of the summer. It's going to be his first appearance here in Boston as a solo act, so you definitely do not want to miss this opportunity.

Japandroids will visit Boston at the end of this month to give their fans a taste of good garage-noise rock. After an appearance on the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon, more than a month of European dates, and an almost non-stop transition to SXSW , (yes, these guys rocked Texas BIG TIME) they embark on a series of dates that will take them all around the U.S., to Canada and back to Europe. It will be the continuation of the "Post-Nothing" tour they started last June in support of their only like-titled album.
The Harvard Lampoon boasts itself as the longest running humor magazine based on the English language. Along with the vast numbers of humorists who have gone on to careers in the comedic entertainment industry, the organization will occasionally honor those whom it finds worthy of being included in the notable ranks of humerati. The latest of these honorees is the controversial synth-glam maven Peaches, who will be honored in an induction ceremony tonight in the mysterious “Lampoon Castle” located just outside of Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA.
