5. Because the Night ...
10,000 Maniacs will take the stage at the Violet Jam at The Verve in Natick Saturday night for a 21-plus performance. Tickets are still available.
"Together with artists like R.E.M., 10,000 Maniacs defined college rock and created the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became known as the alternative rock format on FM radio. By producing, manufacturing and marketing their own recordings 10,000 Maniacs were the original “indie” band before signing with Elektra Records and making The Wishing Chair in 1985."
Hit songs included Because The Night, These are Days, Trouble Me, What's the Matter Here? and More Than This.
