As if we weren’t excited enough for Polaris to come to Boston, we’re happy to announce that Allston Pudding will be presenting the legendary indie rockers at Brighton Music Hall on April 16! We’re also thrilled to report that one of Boston’s finest, Hallelujah The Hills, will be supporting this show.
Polaris was a one-off musical project in the mid-1990s involving members of the New Haven indie rock band Miracle Legion. Mark Mulcahy, Scott Boutier, and Dave McCaffrey performed music for the Nickelodeon television show. Music from The Adventures of Pete & Pete, released in 1999 on Mulcahy's Mezzotint label, contains many of the songs Polaris recorded for the show and is the group's only album release. Today, Scott Boutier and Dave McCaffrey play drums & bass for Frank Black and the Catholics. On August 28, 2012, Polaris reunited for a concert at Cinefamily's Everything Is Festival II. The band claimed it was their first ever live performance.
