Keep Tabs on Boston Area Reggae Events with Reggae 4i

If you want to be sure and not miss out on any of the major reggae concerts which are happening in and around Boston, then you certainly want to keep connected with the folks at Reggae 4i  on a periodic basis, as they list  some of the biggies on their web site. Although these event listings are not meant to be extensive, they are definitely informative and worth taking a look at now and then. The site also contains lots of sound links for your listening pleasure, which are the courtesy of artists represented by KRucial Reggae, a local agency. Some of these musicians are based in the Boston area, so if you like what you hear, you can make it a point to attend some of their performances in person. Furthermore, if you subscribe to the Reggae 4i newsletter, you will be treated to free MP3 downloads  and special discounts.

Get the Inside Scoop on Some of Boston’s Hottest Latin Music Happenings Via BostonLatino.TV

What attracts me most to Boston Latino TV‘s brand of  event coverage is their extensive utilization of video formatting  as a  means of getting their messages across. Their site (www.bostonlatino.TV) is just chocked full of interesting and informative video clips, including great behind-the-scenes footage you won’t find elsewhere. There’s nothing quite like being informed of an event as you are actually experiencing the feeling of  being there, at least to a certain degree. Don’t worry if you don’t speak Spanish either. All of the narrative is in plain English!   And, as is always a big plus for the world music fan, there is plenty of  audio to be heard and enjoyed.

BostonLatino.TV will keep you informed of upcoming local events while featuring the major ones in their coverage, so you know which ones are predicted to be “hottest”. Enjoy video clips of  live concerts given by international stars on tour in Boston and afterwards, you can even go back stage with reporters who will treat you to exclusive interviews. The staff will also let you in on some of the latest local gossip currently buzzing around the Latin entertainment world along with their best photos of local and international celebrities and event attendees. In addition to what’s immediately in view on the home page, you can access most all of this neat info in either the Around Town or VIP Access sections. One of my favorite sections of the site though, is the Music section which features local Latin artists and audio links to samples of their music.  


Subscribe to the station’s newsletter or peruse their calendar of events in order to keep informed of local happenings on a regular basis. If your interested in tuning in to an actual broadcast, you can consult the schedule to see when BostonLaino.TV is on the air.

Sulekha.com: Great Source for Indian Music Happenings In and Around the Boston Area

NotesSulekha.com is one great local source of Indian music concerts. All of their events listings are categorized making browsing a snap. Further more, what’s really neat is that if you click on the category heading for a particular event, you will be given a list of all the events in that category. As nearly as I can tell, the main categories for music and related events are Music, Dance, and Show. Another nice extra, is that the folks at Sulekha.com make it very convenient for you to purchase your tickets online, while your at it. If you’re interested in Indian dance lessons of any kind or local music or dance recitals, then be sure and check out their rather extensive directory of area cultural schools in the Music and Dance section. Register with Sulekha.com and you can opt to receive their online newsletter which includes listings of the latest and hottest events happening in the area.  

Note: If the events page does not come up on your initial attempt to visit the site, be sure and check back later.  For some reason it appears to be a bit temperamental at times, but definitely worth a little patience on your part.
