        Summer is the time of year when classic-rock dinosaurs trot out their nostalgia acts. Don’t file this show in that category, however. Boz Scaggs has been making music since 1965, on his own and with legends like Steve Miller. And the 70-year-old is still on a creative streak. Memphis, his most recent record, [...]

    Music From Salem

      The long-running, Cambridge-based chamber music series Music From Salem continues this weekend with a concert centered on Johannes Brahms’ musical journey.

Rape charges levied against him via the comments thread of website XoJane were dropped by the accuser last week after Oberst filed suit for libel.
