My Tulpa

Band Contact: Thomas Boudreau
Saturday, May 21 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

My Tulpa started when TJ Boudreau kept writing songs about death and love as he was sick of playing in cover bands. These songs are on My Tulpa’s 2014 release Daymares. TJ moved to Baltimore and took 11 months to finish his next album while playing dive bars around the city. The finished product from that time was an album called Misanthropy released in June 2015. Realizing he did not want to work in a pizza parlor his whole life TJ moved back to Massachusetts to go to school and continue to work on music. Shortly after returning to Massachusetts, TJ recruited bassist Aidan Cuffe and drummer Eric McEntee to fill out the group in order to begin playing shows in New England.

Red Arlington

49 College Avenue, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Red Arlington
Saturday, May 16 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Energy, emotion, and relatability quickly became the focus of Red Arlington’s music as he partied his way through college (while maintaining his grades, of course). There was no sense in creating music for others if he didn’t believe it or live it himself. Never taking himself too seriously, Red wants his music to reflect a lighthearted and comical nature similar to that of the environment he lives in. His music encompasses the college experience and what it is to live in our world as a young adult. The catchy hooks and relatable verses can be sung in unison at your next party or provide the background music to the events that are unraveling in front of your beer goggles.

Cake Street

56 Lowden Ave, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Emma Puka-Beals
Saturday, May 16 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Cake Street is made up of Anna (Band Manager), and college a cappella friends Emma, Chloe and Danielle (vocals, guitar, and percussion). We mostly cover popular folk music with lots of cool vocal harmonies.

Cake Street was formed when Emma's forever-roommate Abbey accidentally combined the expressions 'easy street' and 'piece of cake', and everyone was like, damn, we should form a band and call it THAT.
