News earlier this month of the closure of beloved Boston rock club Great Scott has acted as a call-to-action for the local music scene.
Boston-based music blog Allston Pudding has organized an e-gig to benefit the Great Scott/O’Brien’s Pub Employee Relief Fund. The Pudding writes: “We’re worried about our other independent venues in the neighborhood and want to show our support for the staff at Great Scott who no longer have a job to return to. We want to show our support for O’Brien’s and their staff as well. That’s why today we are announcing a few things we are working on with some friends to help.”
The first of those things is a livestreamed gig on Wednesday, May 13 at 8 p.m., featuring local acts like Horse Jumper of Love and Squirrel Flower.
