Marina and the Diamonds as seen from the vid screen
The one-two punch of Marina and the Diamonds and Fun. provided a frenetic finale to the first day of Boston Calling.
Marina and the Diamond's band members hit the stage wearing suits that made you wonder if they had come from a wedding, then Marina herself emerged wearing a bridal veil. Freaky sun glasses, beauty queen sash and way-skimpy outfit for this weather followed. But it was Marina's powerhouse voice and pure command of the stage that hooked ya.
Fun. closed the night on the main stage with a big colorful splash of feel-good pop (even when the songs are down, Fun. makes it all seem OK).
For a first shot, not too shabby Boston Calling. Not too shabby.
