Self-described "ground-shaking, soul-driven powerhouse" collective The Broadcast has not only been busily playing shows around the area and across the country (140 dates last year!), they've also been at work on sophomore album Dodge the Arrow. "The blood, the sweat, the tears, the touring, the van breaking down," writes the band in a recent blog post. "2013 has been a crazy year and we can’t think of a more perfect way to end it than to tie it with the most beautiful bow of all — a brand spankin’ new record!" Dodge kicks off with Caitlin Krisko's powerful rasp, backed by dynamic instrumentals and driving grooves. The Broadcast holds an album release party at The Grey Eagle on Friday, Sept. 27. David Earl & the Plowshares and The Deluge also perform. 8 p.m., $10/$12. thegreyeagle.com.
