Great Scott

Comments

Will there be a public auction of (at) Great Scott items? I can't think off the top of my head what I would want, but I feel that I would definitely want something small to keep as a piece of memorabilia from this club that has meant so much to me over so many years. Thanks.
RIP to one of the greatest venues! Thanks for the many many good times.
Sorry to hear of the demise of one of Boston's last real bars. It's been over 30 years, but friendships made there have stood the rest of time. She'll be missed
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
This was such a fun intimate place to see a band. This breaks my heart.
Hey there! I have two tickets to for the sold-out Piebald show tonight, face value $20 each! Lemme know!

I have an extra ticket to the sold out Kenny O’Brien and the O’Douls show. If anyone would like it, message me. I’d hate to see it go to waste

Great Scott booking agent and Mainvest launch campaign to save rock club

Hi Everybody!

We've got news from long time Great Scott booking guy Carl Lavin about a campaign to keep Great Scott continuing as a vital hub for the arts community in Boston and how you can help:

"Today I, along with Mainvest, am announcing the launch of an investment campaign with the aim of securing a lease for Great Scott and to undertake some long needed updates, including extensive soundproofing of the venue. This is not a typical crowdfunding effort, and this will give people the opportunity to make micro-investments in the business itself with an anticipated rate of return on the contributions. It's still undetermined if the lease can be secured, so there's still a couple steps involved in achieving that goal. Michael at Vanyaland has more information here in this article including statements from MainVest further explaining their mission.

I'm hopeful you'll consider supporting the effort and hope like hell to get to see you on that checkered floor soon enough."

Boston City Councilor Liz Breadon

Join Councilor Annissa Essaibi-George , Allston Village Main Streets and myself to discuss the impacts #Covid_19 has had on Allston. We are hoping to explore resources, have a dialogue and announce some exciting initiatives tonight at 7 pm! We currently have 50 people registered!

Some news from our general manager Tim below. Ticket buyers will be receiving emails with further information.

Stole this idea from our loving sibling The Sinclair... which house party are you going to after this is over?

The first Hallelujah The Hills show!

Wow, didn't know Great Scott had a Flickr page, didn't know these pics of our first show existed!
