FHS 196 – Pariah Beat

Pariah Beat on Band in Boston

The walk-away winners of our “sweatiest band in Boston” award, Pariah Beat came into our living room like a combination traveling carnival and revival meeting caught in in a tornado. Don’t let the traditional Americana roots of their music lead you astray – they performed in our living room with more energy than almost any band we’ve seen live in quite some time. Ranging from old Shaker hymns to Squirrel Nut Zippers-style mishmash jazz to a version of The Beverly Hillbillies theme that I didn’t even recognize at the time, Pariah Beat definitely has the cure for what ails you.

Song List:

  1. I’ve Seen the Light
  2. Hymn #2
  3. Front Porch
  4. City Far Away
  5. Tipperary
  6. The Beverly Hillbillies
  7. Elvis in Jerusalem
