I Can’t Believe That Worked: Aloud celebrates 10 years at Great Scott

It’s so comically familiar, it must be the opening line of an old joke: a couple of wide-eyed 19-year-old kids, who believe a bad idea should never stop you, start a rock band. But here we are, a decade and several foolish ideas later, and Boston-area rock n’ roll band Aloud shows no signs of slowing down. Fresh off an appearance at Austin’s SXSW Music Festival, Aloud celebrates 10 years of beating the odds with a performance at venerated Allston venue Great Scott on Thursday, April 26.

Helmed by longtime songwriting partners/co-lead vocalists Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa, the four piece rock n’ roll band is buttressed by bassist/backup dancer Charles Murphy and drummer Justin Emile Shapiro. Launched from a small one-bedroom republic in the Fenway in May of 2002, Aloud has gone on to record three studio albums – with a fourth in the oven – and crisscross the country on several independent tours.

Aloud’s most recent release – the critically acclaimed full length Exile – and the subsequent 17-week U.S. tour behind it were underwritten in large part through a successful campaign on the fan-funding platform Kickstarter.

Sharing the bill at Great Scott with Aloud is Spirit Kid, The Wicked Tomorrow (on tour from NYC), and Oranjuly. Doors open at 8:30pm.

Tickets for the 18+ show are $8 and available through TicketWeb.

Limited edition screen print posters designed by Erin Genett will be available at the show. A retrospective short film on the band by director Stephen LoVerme will be released this summer, with a trailer to be released soon.
