An often overlooked option for both locals and visitors to the city. Check on-line for regular (several times a week) free concerts. Show-cased talent can be faculty members, guest artists, students. This is a concert hall with very good acoustics, intimately sized, a real treat....More

This is a beautiful older concert hall with wonderful acoustics. Being in an older building, it's a bit quirky - some of the seats are hard to get to and require climbing over dozens of people. Also, as in many venues of this type, they...More

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this

victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
