Somerville PorchFest 2017 Is This Weekend

The city of seven hills celebrates its annual PorchFest music festival, with bands appearing on porches across Somerville.



A little rain isn’t going to stop Somerville from one of its most proud traditions: PorchFest! The annual festival features dozens of bands all performing around the city on, you guessed it, porches. Any patio or deck can qualify as a stage, and bands will be playing almost any type of music you might like to check out, from punk to Americana to indie rock.

While organizers concede that the rain date is Sunday the 14th, for now they’re saying it’s “probably still occurring” on Saturday. So strap on your Bean boots and find a concert! The city has helpfully provided a map and a list of bands, showtimes, and music genres to help you figure out what you need to hear next.

Saturday, May 13, noon-6 p.m.,
