As I write this (30 May 2012), we're heading into summer, when everyone is planning vacations and otherwise looking for ways to relax and, especially, to have a good time. What better way to have a great time than to listen to live music, dance, and meet new people?
We have amazing musicians here in Cambridge and Somerville who play at terrific venues like Johnny D's, Atwood's Tavern, The Cantab, Ryles, Club Passim, The Burren, Toad, The Lizard Lounge, The Plough & Stars, Precinct, RADIO, Sally O'Brien's and many more. I plan to run meetups at all of the above venues and more, but I also plan to stick to Cambridge and Somerville.
Why not Boston?
Well, I personally don't find Boston as welcoming and it's much more tense in some of the clubs there. Most of the venues in Cambridge and Somerville have patrons from all walks of life, all ages, all everything. So yeah, I like C&S better....
We'll initially cover americana, blues, funk, rock, soul, r&b and even some disco -- Booty Vortex anyone? However, as the group grows I hope some other Live Music Lovers decide to help plan meetups and help us branch out, both into other venues and other genres. So please join us as we head out to see some fabulous performers perform great music, all in Cambridge and Somerville.
If you like live music and you like to shake it, come shake it with us.
