Crash Line Productions, in partnership with Downtown Boston Business Improvement District (BID) and The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, announcesthe 2014 Boston Calling Block Party series. Kicking off May 8, 2014 and running through September 25, 2014, the parties will be held every Thursday evening from 5-8pm in Dewey Square, directly across from South Station. All events are free and open to the public, and are presented by Shock Top and Radio BDC. The Swinging Johnsons will perform this Thursday and fans can check the rotating schedule of local artists each week at www.facebook.com/bostoncallingblockparties; www.bostoncalling.com. The Block Party series is in addition to Boston Calling’s three-day music festivals, which take place May 23-25, 2014 and September 5-7, 2014 respectively.
It’s official. Summer is in the house.
The folks who put on Boston Calling Music Festival feel like Boston could use even MORE fun and music throughout the warmer months, those jerks 🙂
But seriously, this is a great move to showcase the beautiful Rose Kennedy Greenway, local artists and DJs, as well as some delicious local produce from the farmer’s market.
Mayoral Walsh also chimed in to offer his approval:
“We are excited about Boston Calling’s creative activation of the City of Boston’s unique open spaces. The popular Block Party Series’ move to Dewey Square, where food trucks and the Boston Public Market already bring people together, will add additional energy to the square. It will create a new environment for friends to gather after work, and will make the Rose Kennedy Greenway and our whole city even more vibrant.”
So kick off those wingtips and heels, flower children, and enjoy the green grass beneath your feet because Boston’s ‘summah’ just got ‘funnah’.
