Friday, September 5

Maxim (Prodigy DJ set) @ The Mid

Our spotlight for the weekend, Maxim’s Prodigy DJ set is something to be noted.

Don’t miss this intimate and unique set this weekend.

Seven Arrows feat. David Murphy @ Concord Music Hall

The famous bassist from STS9, David Murphy has been nothing to mess with. This front man has been the name of the electronic jam band since its beginning.
