Band Contact: Mary Curtin
Saturday, May 12 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Dirty Water Brass Band, a Boston-based undefinable raucous street band, a staunch contributor to the many grooves that make this town tick. We bring our movable block party to you, doesn’t matter where. Our style is eclectic, a mix of second line, soul, R&B, Motown, rock, jazz and more. And we do NOT "have to be in by twelve o'clock!"

This year, Dirty Water is totally psyched to be playing for you on and by the front stoop of the Revolutionary Medical MJ Clinic in East Somerville. Kudos to the city for welcoming such an establishment to this great neighborhood.

Strangers by Accident: 12:55PM

The Mother Flower

5 Magnus Ave, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Raymond DiNitto
Saturday, May 12 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

IMPOSSIBLE to put a label on the Good Reverend Ray and his band "The Mother Flower". What started off as a sh*t kicking return to old school country has morphed into blues, rockabilly and surf punk! Any given show could be the Good Reverend playing solo with his old Supro archtop or electrified surf-punk and rockabilly with his partner in crime The Pugilist on drums and percussion. Come see what all the fuss is about!
