Boston Calling

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sun, Sep 13, 2015

"Rock out at Boston Calling!

We’re not sure how they do it, but Boston Calling just keeps getting better and better. The three-day, semi-annual music festival/tour de force is back again for more rock & roll, food, beer, and general good times. September’s lineup gets totally ridiculous with the likes of The Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Hozier, Churches, and Father John Misty. (Check out this sweet music video announcing the full list.)Ticket packages vary, and this is one you don’t want to miss."
