This Week in Boston (April 23 – 29)

By on April 23, 2012 in

The Celtics will meet the Heat one last time during the regular season at home Tuesday, April 24. In three games against them so far, the Celtics are 2-1 and hope to go for the win in the season series. With only two games left of the regular season and both teams in the playoffs, they’ll be looking for a good game in order to build momentum and propel them into the playoffs. Not to mention that no team ever willingly gives up a win to Lebron James and the Heat. The Celtics will also play the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday April 26 at TD Garden before kicking off their playoff run.

The TD Garden will host the Bruins and Capitals for Game 7 on Wednesday April 25. It’s been a close series so far, with each game being decided by just one goal. In Game 1, the Bruins started it off with a 1-0 win. Game 2 saw the Capitals take it 2-1, but Boston came back in Game 3 to win it 4-3. Washington won the next two, Game 4 2-1, and Game 5 4-3. In the third game to go into overtime, Game 6 saw the Bruins stay alive after Tyler Seguin scored the decisive goal just over the three minute mark in overtime. Like all of the games in the exciting series, the outcome will depend on a showdown between goalies Tim Thomas and Braden Holtby.

The Counting Crows are coming to the House of Blues on Wednesday April 25. The Crows are touring in promotion of their new album, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation), which was released on April 12. The new album is different from their previous records in that it is made up of cover songs that include “Meet On The Ledge,” originally by Fairport Convention, “Ooh La La,” originally from The Faces (Ronnie Lane and Ron Wood), and “You Ain’t Going Nowhere,” by Bob Dylan and The Byrds. Fronted by lead singer Adam Duritz, the Crows are sure to put on a good show.

Nickleback, Bush, and Seether are coming to Worcester’s DCU Center on Saturday April 28. The bands have joined up for the Here And Now Tour that will kick off Tuesday April 24 in Philadelphia. The tour title is the same as Nickleback’s most recent album, Here And Now, that came out in November 2011. Bush also had an album release in 2011 in September called, The Sea of Memories. Seether’s, Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, was released in May of 2011. They will be joined by My Darkest Days.
