Matt Pryor, frontman for the Terrible Twos and the New Amsterdams
Posted July 6, 2007
Matt Pryor is getting good at making the seamless transition between daytime children's entertainer and late-night rock star. For the second weekend in a row, he'll front the Terrible Twos, with music geared toward children, and then play a show with the New Amsterdams later in the night. The shows - which are at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. Sunday at the Replay Lounge, 946 Mass. - and the bands are the focus of this week's Pulse Podcast. Pryor talks about writing music for children, fatherhood and his future music projects. Also, you can hear tunes both from both his bands.
