Some of their previous listings are the Oozing Wound, Dope Body and The Vegans.
The Midway Cafe is a total music haven in the heart of Jamaica Plain. It brings the area alive! There's live entertainment with bands performing every single night at the Midway Cafe.

Spontaneous Celebrations is a non-profit group whose mission is "to create and sustain a community cultural life that unites and empowers people for positive change through the arts." To this end, they throw a good party. Their spring Wake Up the Earth festival boasts music, dancing children, art, and a plethora of fried foods and craft items for sale. This annual festival dates back to 1979, when the I-95 extension was defeated, a win for Jamaica Plain and Roxbury, which would have been effectively destroyed by the project. Check out the Spontaneous Celebrations web site to see their ongoing programs from LGBT/Queer Argentine Tango to Foods not Bombs, or to get involved. - Anais Wheeler
