We have a crystal ball stowed away in the basement.

Seriously.

It told us that the Shovels and Rope concert last August was destined to sell out months before we even booked the band. It showed us just how rowdy our two nights with The Districts was going to get. It even warned us against agreeing to host a polka Justin Bieber cover band (that was close).

Before finalizing our plans for the Amplification Project some months ago, we took a peak in the ol’ crystal ball, and what we saw sealed the deal. In short – we’ve got a whole lot of good times in store. Great bands, up-and-coming singer-songwriters, local favorites, Irish jam sessions and even a month-long residency with Mumford and Sons. (Details on that last one were a bit hazy.)

But that’s all after construction.

So to gear up for what’s to come, we felt it fitting to throw one last hurrah to celebrate what’s been. That’s why we’re hosting a special First Friday concert with acclaimed Boston-based singer-songwriter Heather Maloney tomorrow night (tickets available here), followed by one more TableTop Session with indie rock-n-Rhodes trio Younger Me and singer-songwriter Josh Albright (details here). Both shows are BYOB and guaranteed to be a good time

The crystal ball told us so.
