I stumbled upon this great spot for live music. Live music 365 days a year! Not surprising when Berklee College of Music is right down the street. You won't be disappointed. I loved the diverse crowd at this funky little dive bar.

The bartender was not very welcoming. The beer options are horrible but only $5 so that was nice. It was a lot of fun to watch the performers, and because of that, I would still come back.
