2019 Year Enders, Music

Red Shaydez Top Local Faves

by


When I was approached to write an article for Boston Hassle, I was elated! However, in my true ‘Libra fashion’—I then thought to myself, “I can’t decide what I want to write about so let me come up with a way to include several people and things!” Yes, I know. Indecisive. We like options, what can I say? So now we have ‘Red Shaydez Top Local Faves’ that will include some of my local favorites from multiple categories!

2019 has been the best year for music in Boston thus far. So much talent in the city. We’ve made tons of progress. It has not only been amazing to witness, but great to be a part of as well. While narrowing down my most favorite moments were extremely challenging, here’s a look at some of my top local favorites this year:
