Rock on! Boston tech conferences get an entertainment upgrade

In boom times for the tech industry, the bands playing the private parties and customer conferences get more recognizable. This year, acts like OK Go, Parliament Funkadelic, and the Dropkick Murphys have played for fist-pumping crowds of social media mavens, digital publishing gurus, and roboticists.

 

A few snapshots from the fall concert season…

 

Just before its October initial public offering, the digital marketing company HubSpot had two big acts at Inbound, its annual customer conclave. Viral video hit-meisters OK Go made a surprise morning appearance during the conference, playing “Here It Goes Again.” Yes, there were people doing the famous treadmill routine onstage at the Boston Convention and Expo Center, too.

2014 in Photos: 45 Beautiful Pictures Taken in Boston This Year

December is a month for reflection – if you can find some quiet time between holiday parties, online shopping and flight delays. Whether you find yourself clicking through lists charting the year's best albums, red carpet outfits or Taylor Swift moments, it's the perfect time to pause on the year that was before barreling into 2015.

 

And while we're at it, why not look back on some of the best photos taken in Boston in 2014? Not only do we get to revisit the year in chronological order, but we have the privileged perspective of dazzling photography. Some of the shots we found worth revisiting include the Esplanade in the snow, the Public Garden in the spring and the TD Garden's homage to Mayor Thomas Menino after he passed away this fall. But the post serves almost as a rewind, then fast forward of the year in Boston: Watch as the snow melts, spring blooms, Red Sox season returns, Memorial Day flags pop up, Boston Calling goes by, the Fourth of July fireworks pop off, the leaves fall and Christmas lights reappear, all in 45 shots.
