One Night Band, Sat Aug 21

Clear your calendar for THIS Saturday night and head to Middle East for the second annual One Night Band, presented by Boston Band Crush. The show starts at 8pm and I hear there will be swag bags for the first fans. So get there early!

You'll see 40 selected Boston musicians, who will be formed into random eight 5-member bands, each performing a 4-song set (3 originals and one cover). You do the math, sounds like fun!

All proceeds benefit ZUMIX and their mission "Empowered youth, who use music to make strong positive change in their lives, their communities, and the world."

New England Music Festivals

Although lesser known than national festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, SXSW or even NXNE, New England is home to some great music festivals throughout the year. Since many are annual events, you should keep your eyes open in case you missed your favorite this year.

Many local festivals are held outdoors during the summer. For more info on some of the facilities, check out my post on Summertime Venues. 

Note that listings with this year's date have been confirmed, those with last year's date are still TBD
