Despite the rain, the first Boston Calling was a wild success. Organizers said City Hall Plaza was at 90 percent occupancy, and there was a joyful atmosphere that permeated the space on both days of the city's first-ever ticketed rock fest.

RadioBDC and covered the weekend, soaked through and dancing along with the rest of the audience, to bands like Portugal. The Man, Cults, Bad Rabbits, and many more.

DJs Jason Layne and Julie Kramer broadcasted live from the festival, and we had photographers and bloggers out and about as well.

Here's the best of RadioBDC's Boston Calling coverage, and we'll be back over Labor Day weekend to give you the inside scoop from the second Boston Calling (yes, folks, there will be more! Rejoice and buy tickets early!)

Matt and Kim:

Are they married? When do you need to pack rain boots? How much gymnastics training does a person need to jump off drum sets? Find out the answers to these questions and more by listening to Julie's interview with indie rock duo Matt and Kim.


Young the Giant:
DJ Jason Layne talked to Jacob and Francois from the SoCal-based band about where they came from and where they're going.


Of Monsters and Men:
Right as the sun came out, one of the sunshiniest bands of the whole festival, Iceland's Of Monsters and Men, visited the press area to answer some questions and pose for pictures.
