Dew Tour At Night - Paper Tongues and Neon Trees
The Dew Tour threw a free party for Boston at the Skate Open as the MTV2 Rock N Jock Concert Series kicked off at the first stop of the summer Dew Tour. An enthusiastic crowd showed up to watch the bands Paper Tongues and Neon Trees work through their songs. These were not quick three song sets either; the music was blasting historic Boston for almost 2 hours.
Paper Tongues was up first and their music is funky blend of rock and hip hop with a little funk and soul mixed in. The band is fronted by charismatic vocalist Aswan Dixon who is definitely got the personality to be a lead vocalist. He loves the crowd, he loves his job. Aswan was so appreciative of the chance to sing for the crowd that he told everyone that he and the band would be doing more mundane jobs, like raising poultry in their home state of North Carolina if it were not for music. The whole band had a great time and that energy translates into a good show. Their first album just came out in March of 2010 but with Randy Jackson of all people as the manager and promoter of the band expect to see more of them soon.
