Electronic Music?

by Karlie_K

I am new to the Cambridge and the Boston area and I am looking for a great venue to enjoy GOOD electronic music, not simply rave/techno/top 40. Do you know a good electronic music venue???

Re: Electronic Music?

The Middle East gets some really good bands, but is a mix of rock and electronica. I'm not sure that there is a club that is specifically electronica in Cambridge, but I'm sure there is one in the Boston area.

What do you know of in Boston proper or any other outlying areas? Thanks!

Re: Electronic Music?

by bocmaxima

I really don't know of any, sorry. Almost every club I've encountered in this country that devotes itself to electronica is always house, techno and DJ stuff. If you want more musical electronica, I have the feeling that it's just going to depend on who's in town, because there's just not a ton of groups out there doing it. Of course, you may be talking about a different sort of electronica than I am. I'm talking of stuff like Autechre, Boards of Canada, Aphex, even the more current rock-oriented stuff with live instrumentation like Holy F*ck, The Books, The Lymbyc Systym, etc. I mean, Passion Pit is from Cambridge and you could call them electronica is some vein, but they're so huge now that they would never play a little club in Boston.
Maybe someone will chime in, but I think you're better off on an electronic music forum.

"Boston" covers very little ground, yet is referred to as being many miles in diameter. Most people don't realized the various towns that make up "Greater Boston." My knowledge of "Boston" clubs is so dated it would be worthless to you, but a little web searching will find what you are looking for.

Kenmore Square used to have a number of great clubs. The pubs near Faneuil Hall used to have some great "pick up" bands as well as regular sets that played. http://www.cityofboston.gov/FreedomTrail/Faneuilhall.asp

Boston's nightlife has a rating at http://www.10best.com/destinations/massachusetts/boston/nightlife/ where you might find what you're looking for.

Enjoy.

Travel Tips for Boston

Hmmm......just as I thought!

by johngayton

This is not my favourite thing but it certainly makes interesting research into what it was all about!

The Modern City Hall

There is definitely a bit of a contrast here!! The aesthetics of modern architecture are often a mystery to me and so I may be missing something here, but this building seems a bit of a monstrosity . I presume the building is functional and was probably designed by some famous architect with some higher artistic vision than mine, but sorry this place does nothing for me whatsoever.

Bring Maps!

by duanestorey

Even though there's the freedom trail, there's a ton of other stuff to see in Boston, and most of it's out of the way.. We got lost several times while exploring Boston, so luckily we had several maps to refer to! I loved walking around Harvard (Even though some pesky police offiicer wanted to take my camera away from me)..

by AdHocTravel

Take a walk through the Public Garden and the Boston Common. No matter the time of year, you'll find great people watching here! Strolling through the streets with Jeannine and shopping on Newberry Street.

by wannabeincal

Barhop....this is a fabulous city to do it in. Not only can one see all kinds of different types of people in such a small area, but it is so easy to walk everywhere (read: you don't have to drive!). Spending a nice spring afternoon at Fenway.

Boston Common and Public Garden

by pili

The Common is the oldest public park in America. Walk through the Common, heading west to the adjacent Public Garden -- a real oasis. This park is beautifully landscaped, with 24 acres of ponds, lawns, trees, flower beds and walking paths.-
