Updated: Awesome Day Fest 2014 – Sat. May 24, Allston, MA

awesome day 14We are super excited to be involved in the annual Awesome Day Fest this year.  The festival was started by our friend and Tired Old Bones drummer Jesse Sherman years ago. This year he asked us to help organize and co-curate the day and we are thrilled.  In past years Awesome Day has been a day into night bill taking place at the legendary O’Briens Pub on Harvard Ave in Allston, MA. The afternoon is accompanied by copious amounts of BBQ on the OB’s back patio and the best rock Boston has to offer on the stage.  This year, there is all that and more.  We have partnered with Store 54 and Regina Pizzeria, both across the street from OB’s to include more bands and performances!!! 15 BANDS!!! 3 STAGES!!! ONE AWESOME DAY!!!

 Note: Scroll to bottom of post for updates

We will be rocking the entire corner of Harvard Ave and Cambridge St. all night and day.  Admission at O’Briens includes BBQ and bands all day and night.  You can swing by the Store 54 and Pizzeria Regina stages beginning at 9PM.

Tickets to the O’Brien’s stage are $10 and can be purchased at O’Briens the day of the event.  That ticket price includes BBQ at O’Briens while it lasts. Store 54 and Regina Pizzeria will have an encouraged donation policy for the bands on the evening of the event in lieu of a door cover. Please respect it.
