We want to entertain you. Come join us and have some fun. Bring your kids..... if you want... but you don't have to.
Ghosts! Bigfoot! Accordion! Alluring band names! If you like any of these things, pop by Hancock street for a free show by this spooky rock trio. Your Friends in Hell can be seen playing at The Jungle or at events like Halfoween at The Rockwell, or this time around, for free on our favorite day of the year, porchfest. Despite the spooky name, Your Friends in Hell are fun, friendly, danceable, and are only going to swear like... two times, three, tops.
For all the musical freedom ostensibly offered by subculture, it can also be
limiting in its adherence to tradition and genre constraints. Luckily, New
Bedford, MA indie rock luminaries Wire Lines have no regard for such
restrictions. Consisting of four musical veterans who have served time in the likes of
Daltonic, The Hidden, Bury The Needle, Supermachiner, and many other
acts, Wire Lines channel their urgent, hook-laden brand of alt rock through
the lens of the hardcore punk on which they cut their teeth. Where one song evokes the bouncing
pop-punk of Superchunk, the next flirts with the chugging post-hardcore of
Mallcops have been a band for almost 8 years. They have played all over New England from bars and basements to Brighton Music Hall and The Sinclair. They've toured the US three times, toured Canada, and won 2 Boston Music Awards including Punk Band of the Year 2021.
Are you a fan of:
Weezer, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Harry Styles, Paramore, The Beatles, and more?

A fresh combination of old friends and family, Kerp and the Jerks celebrates the classic mix of electric guitar, bass, and drums layered with vocals to form what is perhaps best described as...Rock. We love all sorts of music, so don't be surprised if we span decades and genres of influences in a set consisting of both originals and covers. Former members of the Functionals, Jeff Demas and Jeremy Kerpka, combine forces with cousin Lindsey Glassen, longtime collaborator Dr. Pat Titterington, and Sir James Sherman. This Porchfest performance will represent multiple returns from musical retirement as well as a debut. We are excited to share the afternoon with you on Simpson Ave!
From the ashes of PowerSlut came Linnea's Garden, blasting into Boston's music scene in an explosion of sparkly punk rock circa early 2020. The power trio (featuring Linnea Herzog on guitar/lead vox, Amy Galaviz on bass/backing vox, and Hands on drums) combines melodic riffs, danceable grooves and introspective lyrics into an energy that's all their own.
Zoe Rose Depaz will be opening with a solo set at 4 pm, followed by Linnea's Garden around 4:45 pm!
