The atmosphere is always electric at Middlesex Lounge. Well, I suppose I can't speak for what it's like there any day but every third Sunday, but I can at least confirm that once every three weeks, there's a truly special kind of energy that invades Cambridge. More

The New Warden Gives a Coffee Drinking Playlist to Help Get to the Weekend
Local Music
Allston power trio The New Warden has been energizing the young neighborhood for upwards of seven years now, finding a niche audience of pop punk revivalists and a second home at O'Brien's. After a 2012 full-length, "Still Life," a handful of EPs, and several small tours of the northeast, the band has connected with Death to False Hope Records, who have put out the band's new EP, "Lightspeedugly." Furious in pacing and bent up in sentiment, The New Warden's latest material is a pleasant collection of resilient slacker anthems-- a feel good album for those who tend to feel slightly shitty on the reg.

Sleeping with the Protagonist: A Night at Boston’s New Verb Hotel
Nostalgia
Whenever I drove through the Fenway neighborhood of Boston, my eye always involuntarily gravitated towards the Howard Johnson Motor Lodge nestled between the ballpark and Boylston street. It appealed to me as a gem from another era, a place where I easily imagined interesting characters flooding in and out of its rooms while baseball, bars, and music venues formed a protective shell around its perimeter.
