Student loans, worldwide protests and local bars

“Noise from the Underground” is offering what may be a once in a lifetime chance to experience the art, music and “youthful consciousness” that animate the basements of Allston.

The website proclaims that the subterranean hipster-fest will be “drawing influences from music, advertisements, and the social and political issues we all face, from student loans and worldwide protests to occupying local bars on a nightly basis…”

Jeez, I was going to some of these watering holes in high school. Didn’t know I was part of an occupation. But this sounds like it could be a blast. Hit their site for info on how to attend.

The Dropkick Murphys will play a show this Sunday at the Brighton Music Hall, following up on three nights of performances at the House of Blues that end this evening. Not how I’d want to nurse a hangover, but their fans are a special breed.
