Boston Calling 2014: Lorde Mesmerizes, Nas Lights Up, and More Live Photos

At this weekend’s Boston Calling Festival (the fourth in 18 months), thunder and lightning threatened to overshadow the weekend’s stellar lineup. But save for two canceled sets — Volcano Choir and Girl Talk, who would’ve performed during Saturday night’s evacuation — the weekend was a smashing success. Lorde brought her brand new tour setup out for a spin; the War on Drugs got audience members swaying back and forth in the breeze; and Nas was joined by the Roots to for a hit-stuffed Sunday set. Check out pictures and recaps of the weekend’s most exciting performances ahead.
