Ab Soto: Cha Cha Bitch

Ab Soto is a queer artist who first came to my attention earlier this week in an article I read on HuffPost Gay and since watching this video I can’t get it out of my head.  He clearly has a flair for eye-catching fashion and has more wardrobe changes than a Taylor Swift video.  Check this out and get your cha cha on.

Together Boston Festival May 10 – 17

music festival BostonTogether Boston, a festival now in its sixth year, brings together Boston’s underground music community this week.  In addition to parties you can attend demos, meetups and lectures centered around the three disciplines: music, art and technology.   The point of this festival is twofold: first to have fun and come together; second, to draw attention to the gifted and creative economy in and around Boston nightlife.

The 32nd Annual MayFair
Sunday, May 3rd, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Boston has a long, proud history of churning out really excellent bands.  Some have gone on to enjoy significant commercial success and many others have gone on to have long, successful careers outside of the mainstream.  Part of the reason so many bands come to Boston is our city’s embrace of music in all its forms.  Next weekend is a good example of what I’m talking about.

Sunday, May 3rd is the 32nd Annual MayFair festival in Harvard Square.  This free, all day event includes an impressive line up of some of Boston’s favorite local acts including The Sheila Divine, Freezepop, Bent Shapes, M’Bolo, Air Traffic Controller, Hallelujah The Hills, Grey Season, the Luxury, Vundabar, Funeral Advantage, Parks, and the Novel Ideas.  All twelve bands will play on two different stages between 12PM and 6PM while various vendors and events take place in Harvard Square. The event is free and open to the public. ​​
