Does this exchange sound familiar to you?
Friend/colleague: "So what are you up to tonight?"
You: "I'm headed over to [The Middle East/Brighton Music Hall/Great Scott] for a show tonight."
Friend/colleague: "Oh. One of those bands you listen to. Who is it, Nervous Squirrel again?"
You: "That was Frightened Rabbit. And no, I'm going to see [insert name of awesome indie band]."
Friend/colleague: Blank stare.
If so, you're in the right place.
This group is for people who don't have a lot of friends who frequent indie rock – as you'll see from the range of shows we attend, we use that term very loosely – shows, who are looking to meet some avid concert-goers, or just love live music and want to see some Boston venues. Meet up for food or drinks before and after shows.
Venues that will be the most frequented:
Middle East – Cambridge
Brighton Music Hall – Brighton
Great Scott – Allston
Paradise Rock Club (and Lounge) - Boston (near BU)
Royale – Boston
TT the Bears - Cambridge
This group will be an open forum for indie (and the like) shows. Rather than stick to the standard Meetup model of having a few organizers run all the events, we’d like to get everyone involved and have lots of options on the calendar. So if you’re planning on heading to a show, and you’re willing to be responsible for arranging a time and place to meet and making sure people can find you and the group when they arrive, send us a suggestion (use the big “Schedule a New Meetup” link on our page) and we’ll help you do the rest!
Welcome, Boston Fans of Live Music Shows!

Ha! They're back baby. Don't think the snow in Buffalo would've stopped Interpol from performing in Boston! In fact, they're playing 2 nights. Killer.
