Heads Up!

Art Beat, the Somerville Arts Council's annual block and craft party, is this upcoming weekend, from Friday July 18th- Saturday July 19th. Head over to Davis Sq, and take a look at some of the independent artists on the streets, or perhaps the local live acts (I want to see Afrobatik on Friday night - he's the hip hop guy who does the Sports Rap on 94.5fm). And while you are enjoying the outdoor activities, remember to stop by Magpie or Poor Little Rich Girl for some goods. By next year, you will also enjoy Bowl and Board, since the houseware store is leaving is Mass Ave/Harvard Sq location for Davis Sq (the old McIntyre and Moore space). Oh, and these events are all FREE. Click here for the schedule.

P.S. - Streets in Davis close down for this event, so avoid driving in the area on Saturday.
