Boston Calling spring 2014: Our best photos from the Beantown music fest

Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie and Jack Johnson headlined the three-day Memorial Day weekend music extravaganza in Boston

Advertising
Music festival afficionados on the East coast converged upon Boston during Memorial Day weekend for the second annual spring edition of Boston Calling. The mostly sunny weather greeted 60,000-strong spectators at City Hall Plaza, and a sudden downpour during the Decemberists’ Saturday night set did little to dampen their spirits. In addition to headlining sets from the early-aughts trio of Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie and Modest Mouse, other fest highlights included raucous performances by British (not French) rockers Bastille and alt-rock vets Brand New, frequent forays into the audience by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert, and peppy indie pop courtesy of Tegan and Sara. Boston Calling returns in the fall (Sep 5–7) with a lineup featuring the National, Lorde, Nas, Neutral Milk Hotel and the Replacements.
