Looking to escape reality for a while? We thought so.
Way back before it knew the country would light itself on fire, Coach & Sons organized a one-day festival to give the community a day of singing, dancing, and musical uplifting. This Saturday, a slew of indie rock acts will perform on two stages at the Middle East Downstairs. The all-ages event aims to give Boston a day of full-hearted songs. Given the state of the country, it will act as a helpful hand, too.
The festival sees 18 bands joining forces to give a voice to the community. Longtime favorites like Save Ends, Posture & the Grizzly, Queen Moo, dæphne, halfsour, Bat House, Sports., and People Like You will share the stage with Holy Pinto; Perspective, a lovely hand to hold; the Most; Prince Daddy & the Hyena; Just Friends; Lilith; Kitner; FALL RISK; NOX; and both a DJ set and full set by Bad Dreams.
If you’re like us, leaving the house has been hard. So, first, congrats on battling the crude comments and whiplashing winds of the outdoors to pick up a copy of this paper. Second, get out of the house this Saturday to check out the festival, because you can get 25 percent off your meal at the Middle East Restaurant when you show your Coach Fest 2 ticket. Dinner and a show and the comfort of being surrounded by love in a safe space in one fell swoop? Maybe things won’t be as unmanageable as they seem.
COACH FEST 2. SAT 11.19. MIDDLE EAST DOWNSTAIRS, 472 MASS. AVE., CAMBRIDGE. 3PM/ALL AGES/$12. MIDEASTOFFERS.COM.
