Musicians and bands throughout Somerville 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—serenade passersby from porches throughout Somerville. Parking restrictions will be relaxed in residential areas from 12 to 6 pm.
There are three time slots for the day based on three quadrants of the city; east of Central St. will be 12-2; Central St. to Willow Ave. will be 2-4; west of Willow St. 4-6.
See the website for a map of porch locations as well as a schedule of musical performances.
