Bad Rabbits kick off Boston Calling with "We Can Roll"

Rain be damned. Bad Rabbits hit the stage to launch the inaugural Boston Calling music festival, and the drops stopped-if only temporarily.

Weather aside, the transformation of City Hall Plaza into a festival site is pretty impressive. Two stages, various vending areas, a sheltered VIP enclave are all part of the footprint.

Not sure if the drizzle is keeping elements of the the sell-out crowd at bay, as there is plenty of space to get up close to the bands during the early goings.

Waiting for St. Lucia to hit the second stage next, followed by Cults, MS MR, Matt and Kim, Portugal the Man, the Shins, Marina and the Diamonds, and Fun. Boston's heavy millennial fest is under way.
