In 2011, we created a decentralized music festival--PorchFest. Perhaps you’ve sat on your porch and overheard a neighbor strumming guitar on another porch? Porchfest takes this idea and multiplies it. This is not a festival per se but rather a community event where Somervillians share their love of playing and listening to music. Think of Somerville Open Studios, which is for visual artists, but for music.
On Saturday, May 18th musicians and bands throughout Somerville will celebrate and utilize an underused public venue: The Porch. Acts—ranging from bollywood funk, cosmic americana, killer blues, Moroccan, Balkan, gospel, American space rock and clawhammer banjo—will serenade passersby from porches throughout Somerville.
There are three time slots are based on three quadrants of the city; east to Central will be 12-2; Central to Willow will be 2-4; west of Willow 4-6. It's all on this map.
Be sure to view the band profiles complete with urls and mp3s found on the map listing.
Given the scale of the event, we recommend that before you print the map, you could pull up the content by zone. I.e. print out the 12-2; then 2-4. You'll probably have an easier time reviewing the information.
