From a college freshmen band to one of the most heavily-attended acts in the Brighton area, Juice has become the musical pride of Boston College and has generated buzz beyond BC's campus for over two years. Right now, the center of this buzz is their upcoming concert on March 31, at the Brighton Music Hall, which will feature other local acts Kyle Thornton & Co. and Los Elk.
"The upcoming show should be an exciting one,” commented Rami El-Abidin, the Juice bassist. “We've been working on a lot of new material and have also been reworking some older stuff, which we will hopefully have ready in time. There's also a chance that we are preparing a special cover of a song originally performed by a certain pop star who shaved her head at one point." Britney Spears fans, take note.
Juice has seen incredible success both on campus and outside of BC since their founding in 2013. They won BC's Battle of the Bands twice and have opened for Ludacris, Hoodie Allen, and Andy Grammer at BC. Off campus, they have played at many notable venues and won the $20,000 grand prize at the Land of the Big Gig competition at Summerfest, in Milwaukee, WI.
Juice's successes are far from over, however. Rami believes band will have a bright future after most of its members graduate this year.
"After graduation, we are all moving to New York to pursue music full time. We'll be living outside the city at our drummer Miles' house, practicing and writing as much as possible, and playing as many shows in the tri-state area as we can. Hopefully by the end of the summer, we will have released some new music and will be in a position to go on tour."
The "Listen Local" concert at the Brighton Music Hall is the last chance for BC students to see the band before most of its members graduate this year. Buy your tickets for the must-see event here and cool Juice apparel can be found here.
The concert will be at Brighton Music Hall on Friday 3/31 from 8pm to 11pm.
