DEEP HEAVEN NOW, our city’s resurrected bi-annual, two-day, two-stage ambient/whatever-gaze music festival, returns this weekend to Union Square in Somerville, its sixth installment taking over the Friday and Saturday slates at Precinct and P.A.’s Lounge in another sonic spin of noisy goodness.
The outpouring of support around Boston for BARBARA WALSH has been so big, they had to put it on a fucking billboard on Interstate 93. Facing both directions.
Honestly, nevermind the Allston Village bulletin boards, or the walls at various Newbury Comics, or some street pole in Jamaica Plain -- you wanna spread the good word, get the message in front of thousands of commuters.

With a push to expand to live music to seven nights a week and the recent opening of its downstairs room, Moe’s Lounge, Somerville rock club RADIO recently added two new talent buyers to its booking team.
CHRIS BARRETT (Kingsley Flood, Eddie Japan) and ROBIN GOODHUE (Ammonia Booking, Livver) have joined co-owner AIMEE MCGRATH in bringing both local and national bands to the 200-person capacity Union Square venue that opened last October.
Earlier this month, thanks to a sweet scoop by our own Eugenia Williamson, we told you about the impending arrival of the DAVIS SQUARE THEATRE in Somerville. And right on schedule, the newest rock club in the area has announced its first show.

The bands come marching in this weekend as HONK! FEST rings in October, packing every street, corner, and hidden orifice of Davis Square with costume-clad marching bands and booming, bursting music.
Honk! began six years ago with the mission to revamp the long standing relationship between taking activism to the streets and music.
Last week we noted the arrival of a new rock club in Somerville called RADIO. This 200-person capacity venue at 379 Somerville Ave., in the space formerly called Club Choices, will join a fairly crowded live music scene in Union Square, lining up nearly across the street from P.A’s Lounge and Sally O’Brien’s and just a short walk from Precinct and Starlab.
Just a few weekends ago, while running back and forth and all over in between the Starlabfest BBQ and Deep Heaven Now's two stages at P.A.'s Lounge and Precinct, we marveled at the vibrancy of Union Square in Somerville. This October, it'll gain even more action within the city's music scene, as the recently shuttered Club Choices on Somerville Avenue re-opens under new ownership as RADIO, a restaurant and live music venue headed up by Rosebud bartender JOSH BANVILLE and booked by Boston Band Crush's ASHLEY WILLARD
