Two FREE socially distant concerts you can attend this weekend in Boston
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately today’s show at Cassidy Park has been canceled. Apologies for the delay on this information!
Live music is slowly returning to New England under strict safety guidelines. So far we’ve seen several towns throughout New England convert their drive-in movie theatres into drive-in concert venues with some success and with more shows scheduled. However things have been pretty quiet within city limits due to space constraints. That all changes this weekend with two free back to back concerts, both in the Allston/Brighton area, and both outdoors. The shows feature a bunch of talented local artists we have all the details below along with samples of music from each artist to get you ready for the show. Check it all out and stay safe!
Up first on Friday, August 21st at Herter Park Ampitheater (pictured above) along the Charles River is Sons of Levin and Mandi Crimmins. The show starts at 7:30pm and is limited to strict 50 person capacity. Ample onsite parking is available, and the address of the theater is 1175 Soldiers Field Rd, Allston, MA – just steps from the site of Boston Calling.
Sons of Levin:
On Saturday, August 22nd things move across Brighton to Cassidy Park in Cleveland Circle for Black Calling II a one day music festival celebrating Black culture. The event runs from 4pm to 7pm will feature performances from Dienue, Sifa Bihomora, Iamtrevo, Cat Ashley, Cadet, Diz , and more.
