Indie Rock Boston - upcoming shows & new meetup ideas

From: Matthew
Sent on: Friday, August 21, 2009 1:25 AM
Hey everyone...

I'm Matt...Mike's been gracious enough to allow me to try to organize a few meetups to hopefully get some people out to some of the great shows around Boston this summer/fall, so I've done a couple of things:

First, on the group message board, I've posted lists of all the upcoming shows, by month, at Paradise, the Middle East, Great Scott and T.T. the Bear's, as well as shows at other venues around Boston that might be of interest to people. I'll try to update these regularly...hopefully this will be an easy way for people to see what's going on in the coming months. So have a look, and please let me know if I should add anything.

Second, I put together the following list of shows for now through the end of October based on what people on the message board (myself included!) have shown interest in attending. I'll start by setting up a few meetups for the shows in which a number of people have expressed interest, and as more people express interest in other shows, I can set those up as meetups as well. So please, have a look at this list and let me know what you're interested in, and feel free to suggest things from the full lists I've posted as well. This message will be posted on the message board, so feel free to leave your suggestions there.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing some people and hearing some great live music soon...
