Live music, vintage objects and workshops this weekend in Somerville


Somer’s Day

Friday September 10, 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. (rain date 10/17)

Seven Hills Park behind Davis Square MBTA Station

Produced by Sur5ILL, winner of the BIPOC 2020 grant series, Somer Fest hosts its third annual multi-genre outdoor concert. There is something for everyone: patrons who like live music will be treated to covers of punk rock and acoustic pop; dance fans can get their collective groove on our DJ tracks, from reggaeton to top 40; comedy fans can chuckle in front of some of the brightest stars in Boston’s comedy scene; and those who are amazed by the disappearance of objects can be amazed by magic.
