Let the Wild Rumpus Begin

Nymphs glide among vines dripping through magical lighting and fairytale mushrooms.  This is Chelsea’s The Rumpus Room parking lot transformed into a magical forest. The concert goers easily fell into the breezy party spell during the last hours of daylight as the night picked up with beer and music, creating something more than just a concert.

The Rumpus Room Outdoor Summer Concert Series kicked off its second summer with Rusted Root and The Ragbirds. The series, as the name suggests, stretches through summer with four more events. The concerts began when Jet’s Pizza franchisees Jason and Suzei Povlich combined their passions, music and philanthropy, to create Project 418. Last year’s series raised enough funds to open an orphanage for 67 children with Project 418. The Povlichs took their previous creation (parking lot turned tropical beach) and pushed it to the next level with an immersive magical forest this year. The volunteers, costumed as mythical creatures, move throughout all sorts of greenery draped around booths and tables.

Simply put, this is a benefit concert series that gives locals an awesome party while supporting a good cause. The Devon Allman Band headlines the next concert in this series. Led by Greg Allman’s son, the band belts out bluesy rock with a soul center. Fitting sounds for a gathering whose cause befits an otherworldly event environment that imagines the world a little bit better.

Throwaway at the Blind Pig with Louis Picasso and Scissor Now – Jan 24

We’re all weirdos or strangers or awkward stumblers in this life… Throwaway faces that inherent eccentricity and denies it any ability to make one feel alienated by dramatizing alienation by way of accentuation: like a paper bag over one’s face. You might call this guitar/drum duo punk, or noise-rock, but that’s a result of your
