Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton and other Celtic music and dance are back in Harvard Square this weekend for the 12th annual three-day BCMFest.
A crowdfunding campaign can help keep Cambridge a center for musical creativity by turning the entire first floor of Harvard Square’s Democracy Center into a House of Hip-Hop for one night a month.
It’s Friday and you have nothing to do? Don’t worry. Here are two events that would welcome your procrastinating self:
The Allston band with a sublimely heavy, prog-rock sound – part of Boston’s growing progressive scene – leads off a five-band night in Central Square.
Americana artist and Berklee professor of songwriting Susan Cattaneo brings her critically acclaimed “Haunted Heart” performances back to Cambridge on Tuesday.
Nattily attired baritone Matthew Connor premieres his latest video at a late-night show for the lover – or tormented soul – in all of us.
Regattabar’s second annual Klezmer Music Festival would be considered modest – it’s only two bands – if the two bands weren’t so big on their own.
Don’t expect the J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. to take the stage Saturday at The Sinclair. This headliner is the guy behind the softer, more subdued “Tied to a Star” solo album.
There’s $45,000 at stake, last year split between 26 musicians chosen out of 300 applicants with projects ranging from new dobros and albums to entire community projects.
Kat Edmonson brings her timeless, quirky music to town. If you hear it without knowing the source, you’d think you were hearing a tune from the ’60s.
