Amazing Things Arts Center puts on all kinds of great music and performances in an old converted firehouse in downtown Framingham. Go online and check out their schedule. This could be in JP, Davis Square, Fort Point- before they got gentrified. The artists that got chased out by rising rents are here too, in two loft/warehouse buildings nearby that have regular open studios. The neighborhood is diverse, true, but we live near here and come here all the time to attend performances and to eat in the cool restaurants downtown. It's very popular.There's easy parking, too.
