Raising The Nave Porch Roof! : a music fundraiser presented by PorchFest bands Cargo Cult, Litehouse, Dirty Water Brass Band and Dust Clouds of Mars. Thursday, January 31, 8:00 pm. Suggested donation: $10. PA’s Lounge, 345 Somerville Ave., Somerville. Information: 617-776-1557, www.paslounge.com.
The “Raising The Nave Porch Roof” fundraiser is being presented by several local area PorchFest bands (www.somervilleartscouncil.org/porchfest) who are fans of the Nave Gallery and thrilled about the opening of the Gallery’s new Nave Gallery Annex, a non-profit community space located right next door to Redbones at 53 Chester St. in Davis Sq.
But there is also an ulterior motive to this fundraiser …. because the new Annex happens to have a great porch, which needs a little work but is a perfect venue to be added (hint hint) to the next annual PorchFest map. PorchFest 2012 bands have spoken and want to help make the Nave Gallery Annex porch a reality spot for 2013!
