About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is located just northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. The easy access to Boston and Cambridge by public transportation and it's great parks and neighborhoods, makes Somerville a perfect choice to settle down and call home. Search local Somerville homes for sale and join the local community.

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals, college students and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles of residential homes and commercial properties.

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!

The Duhks
Formed in 2002 in Canada, The Duhks soon became recognized as one of the more dynamic, more agressive, more "punky" bands of the new wave of roots-based contemporary music. During a period of many personnel changes, several critically acclaimed albums, and quite a number of touring miles, the Duhks still retained that edge. The played the Burren before and what a concert it was. If you were there, you know what I am talking about. If not, come on out for a rollicking treat in the special intimacy of this special room. The Burren Backroom series launched in October of 2011 but has already created many memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. DeDanann, Dervish, Teada, The Teetotalers, Lunasa, Robbie O'Connell, Sean Tyrrell, the list is building and building, and the radio recordings have become a feature of the weekly Celtic Sojourn radio broadcasts. A series of CDs "Live from the Backroom" is being planned. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. Regularly, there are "openers" artists presenting three or four pieces often in contrast to the "main" offering. This has seen some spectacular new and often unexpected talent being presented on stage. Tickets are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!

Build a Table AUGUST
Description: The table saw is an amazing tool that enables even novice wood workers to cut perfectly square joints, miters that are exactly 45 degrees, and repeat cuts of a set length or width. In addition, it can cut dadoes and grooves in the exact position that the operator has determined. This class will use the table saw to make a parson's table, including cutting stock to width and length and mitering the legs to make a square splined joint. We will use dado cutters to make the splined joint as well as the groove for the top, and cut the tongue that will fit the top to the table. Finally, we will use a tapering jig to cut the taper on the legs. If time allows we will also apply finish to the table using the Asylum's spray booth. Students will leave the class with a greater understanding of what is possible to accomplish with the table saw and more familiarity with how to use it skillfully.  Ticket cost includes a one-day pass to the Asylum. *PLEASE NOTE: Tool testing is NOT included in this course, and needs to be arranged separately by each student.* Prerequisites: This class is suitable for beginners.  What to Bring:  Students should wear shop appropriate clothes - closed-toe shoes, no dangly jewelry or straps, and long hair should be tied back.  Instructor Biography: Phil Wolfson is a retired union cabinetmaker and vocational instructor. Event Time: Session 1: Friday, August 7, 5:30pm-9:30pm Session 2: Friday, August 14, 5:30pm-9:30pm Session 3: Friday, August 21, 5:30pm-9:30pm Session 5: Friday, August 28, 5:30pm-9:30pm   REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date.

The Sadies
Cuisine en Locale is honored to present THE SADIES (With support to be announced) Lounge open for dinner with bar at 5pm Doors at 8pm Music at 9pm All ages are welcome but you must  be over 21 with valid ID to drink alchohol, of course. Formed in Toronto in 1994, the Sadies have released 16 studio albums. The group has recorded, written and toured extensively as backing band for singer Neko Case. They have also toured and recorded with Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray as Heavy Trash, as well as John Doe of X and Jon Langford of the Mekons. Last year they recorded an album with Gordon Edgar Downie of Canadian rock band the Tragically Hip. The Sadies have also attracted the attention of Canadian rock royalty. When Garth Hudson, organist with the Canadian rock institution, The Band, put together an all-Canadian collaboration album recently he leaned heavily on the Sadies, who, in addition to contributing their version of “The Shape I’m In,” backed the much-loved Mary Margaret O’Hara on her contribution, “Out Of The Blue.” They also played with Neil Young on his rendition of “This Wheel’s On Fire.” This ultimately led to being invited to open for Neil Young and Crazy Horse all across Canada in late 2012. The Sadies have also recently performed live on several occasions with former Guess Who founder and Canadian songwriting legend Randy Bachman, also of Bachman-Turner Overdrive. - See more at: http://rogovoyreport.com/2015/03/17/the-sadies-helsinki-hudson/#sthash.JmJgZOoc.dpuf

Intro to Woodworking: Build a Box JUNE/JULY

Description:

In this class you'll get familiar with typical woodworking tools and the basics of joinery and finishing techniques by building the foundational shape from which most furniture and structures are constructed - a box! We will be creating a small (roughly 3x6x9") box with lid.

While this is a hands-on class producing a final project that you can take home, there will also be theoretical lecture portions of the class. We will discuss different types of wood, what factors go into your choice of material, and what behaviors of the wood to keep in mind when choosing which tools to use on that wood. We will also discuss different types of joints, and both the structural and aesthetic reasons you may want to use one joint method over another. We will discuss joints that require jigs, however, we will NOT be practicing those joints (such as dovetails, finger joints, biscuits, and pocket screwing). We will also discuss the different finish options, including waxes, oils, stains, varnishes, and paint, and you will get instruction on how to apply a stain or oil finish to your final piece.

Class Goals:

Teach students how to safely use woodworking and assembly tools like table saws, sliding compound miter saws, circular saws, the jointer and planer, layout tools and more, leading to the completion of a wooden box.

Prerequisites:

No experience necessary; students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Wood will be provided; please bring $10 cash to the fist class to cover the cost of materials.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst, taught in the Student Union Craft Center for most of her time there, and took woodworking classes in the art department.

Carolyn has been observing and building in her Dad's workshop since before she can remember. She built her first toolbox as a wee lass with her Dad's help when she was probably 8 or 10. Her personal projects tend to range from jewlery stands to boxes to small furniture. She comes from a family of professional builders and remodelers, and has helped frame, drywall, trim, paint, etc. many a structure, including her parents' home improvement projects, the construction of an addition to a family summer cottage, volunteering on several Habitat for Humanity sites, and supervising and teaching 14-18 year olds in week-long trips rebuilding houses in the Gulf Coast for three summers post-Hurricane Katrina. Teaching a 15 year old girl to cut and hang crown molding and seeing her amazement and the homeowner's gratiture in her results has been one of her most rewarding teaching experiences.

Jewelry I: Intro to Metalsmithing JUNE/JULY Daytimes
Description: In this 5 week day class, students are introduced to the skills, secrets and techniques of making jewelry. No experience is required except passion and enthusiasm. We begin with the basics of a survey of the tools used in jewelry making. From saw frames to solder picks, each week we explore a new technique for your tool arsenal. We begin with the basics of using a rolling mill to emboss metal and move on to piercing a decorative design. From here, we will connect metal to metal with a rivet and tool that you will make and take home. Lastly, students will have the skills to solder a ring or make a pendant with a set stone. Soldering is fun and luscious and you will learn the basics in this class to solder with confidence. Jewelry is fun and highly addictive, especially when you have the skills to work independently in the jewelry studio at Artisan's Asylum Class Goals: Students will come away with familiarity of basic jewelry making skills: Sawing, Filing, Soldering, Polishing, Patina, Riveting, Surface Embellishment, Stone-setting.    Project Goals: Students will complete several sample projects and at least one sterling silver piece of jewelry with a bezel-set cabochon. Prerequisites: No experience required; students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: An additional materials fee of $35 covers the cost of silver, copper, brass and consumables such as saw blades, solder, etc., all of which will be provided. Payment should be delivered to the instructor on the first day of class by cash or check. What to Bring: You need not bring anything beyond the material fee, but it is useful to have a sketchbook for ideas. If you bring scrap fabric with interesting textures we will use them in the first day of class!  Please wear close-toed shoes and use hair ties to secure long hair. An apron is great for keeping your clothes from destruction but is optional. Instructor Biography:  Karen Christians is an educator and maker in the metal arts. She developed the metals program at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, founded Metalwerx in Waltham, a non-profit school for jewelry and the metal arts, and the new jewelry section of the Hot Craft Studio at Artisans Asylum in Somerville.

Build a Table AUGUST
Description: The table saw is an amazing tool that enables even novice wood workers to cut perfectly square joints, miters that are exactly 45 degrees, and repeat cuts of a set length or width. In addition, it can cut dadoes and grooves in the exact position that the operator has determined. This class will use the table saw to make a parson's table, including cutting stock to width and length and mitering the legs to make a square splined joint. We will use dado cutters to make the splined joint as well as the groove for the top, and cut the tongue that will fit the top to the table. Finally, we will use a tapering jig to cut the taper on the legs. If time allows we will also apply finish to the table using the Asylum's spray booth. Students will leave the class with a greater understanding of what is possible to accomplish with the table saw and more familiarity with how to use it skillfully.  Ticket cost includes a one-day pass to the Asylum. *PLEASE NOTE: Tool testing is NOT included in this course, and needs to be arranged separately by each student.* Prerequisites: This class is suitable for beginners.  What to Bring:  Students should wear shop appropriate clothes - closed-toe shoes, no dangly jewelry or straps, and long hair should be tied back.  Instructor Biography: Phil Wolfson is a retired union cabinetmaker and vocational instructor. Event Time: Session 1: Friday, August 7, 5:30pm-8:00pm Session 2: Friday, August 14, 5:30pm-8:00pm Session 3: Friday, August 21, 5:30pm-8:00pm   REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date.

Intro to Sewing Machines AUGUST
Description: Have you always wanted to sew your own clothes but just didn't know where to start? Do you have your mom's old sewing machine sitting in the corner collecting dust because you don't know how to use it? Sick of throwing clothes away because of a minor tear, or taking your pants to a tailor to get hemmed? In this class, you'll learn the basic skills to get you started with cutting and pinning fabric, and using a sewing machine. To teach these skills, we will be making drawstring waist PJ or lounge pants. Class Goals: By the end of this class, you'll know how to thread a sewing machine, wind a bobbin, use a few different stitches on the machines, make a button hole, and cut and pin fabric. Prerequisites: Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials: Students should come to the first class with 3 yards of flannel or woven cotton (or cotton/poly blend) fabric. Do not buy a knit fabric or fleece. Quilting fabrics work well. Sewfisticated has a wide variety of inexpensive fabrics; they are located at Twin City Plaza in Somerville and at Lambert’s Plaza in Dorchester. (If you are making the pants for a child, someone especially petite, or someone especially large, you may need more or less fabric. Your instructor can be emailed with any questions about the fabric.) You will also need to bring to class a comfortable to loose-fitting pair of pants that we will use to make a pattern. If you wish to make the pants for someone else, please bring a pair of their pants to class. Instructor Biography: Carolyn Emberley sewed her first wallet by hand with some of her mom's quilting scraps and embroidery floss in the third grade. In addition to learning that embroidery floss is not the correct thing to use as thread, she learned to use her mother's sewing machine later that year, and has been sewing things ever since. She has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst. For most of her time there, she taught a variety of classes at the Student Union Craft Center, including sewing. Event Time: Session 1: Monday, August 10, 7:00PM - 9:30PM Session 2: Monday, August 17, 7:00PM - 9:30PM Session 3: Monday, August 24, 7:00PM - 9:30PM   REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date.

Three optional unsupervised worknights are included in the three-month-long schedule to make sure students without Artisan's Asylum memberships have time to finish their frame by the end of the course. 

You will come out of the class with an unpainted steel roadbike frame set up for fast city riding, commuting, or touring. It will accept caliper brakes and a 25.4mm threadless headset. Extras (handlebars, seat, peddles, and wheels) are totally up to you!

Class Goals:

Students will leave the class having built their own bicycle frame, fitted specifically for them (or for the person of their choice) from steel tubing. Students will learn about fabricating structures made of thin wall tubing, and about brazing techniques.

(Outside the scope of this class, but highly recommended:  Build up your bike. Paint your name on the side. Ride it around. Impress your friends.)

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required. Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Materials are provided, covered by a materials fee of $225 included in your registration price. Students may customize their build with a selection of dropouts and braze-ons.

Kombucha & Ginger Beer: Introduction to Fermentation Workshop & Tasting JULY

Description:

In this class you'll learn how to make your own kombucha and ginger beer, as well as the basics of fermentation and how to care for live cultures. Kombucha is a tea that is fermented with a colony of bacteria and yeast (the same kind as in just about any fermented foods or drinks). It produces a tangy self-carbonating beverage that is both delicious and packed full of B vitamins and amino acids. Producing ginger beer uses the same process, and even the same colony, but you'll be able to create your own variety of ginger beer with a custom level of ginger bite and spice!

Join us for a brief talk about kombucha and the basics of fermentation of drinks and foods, a tasting of a variety of kombucha blends and ginger beers, and a demonstration about preparing the teas for inoculation. Everyone will leave with a starter pack that includes a kombucha mother, and enough tea and sugar for your first batch.

Class Goals:

Learning the basics of dealing with live cultures (keeping things clean, feeding, etc). How to prepare tea for fermentation, and how to harvest your kombucha or ginger beer.

Prerequisites:

No experience necessary. Participants must be 21+

Materials Provided:

All the components of your kombucha starter kit will be provided, and are covered by the cost of registration. 

Instructor Biography:

Jimmie Rodgers is a maker, artist, electronics engineer, instructor, and world traveler. He has been brewing his own beer and kombucha since 2007, making hundreds of batches of a number of different varieties. 

Event Time:

Saturday, July 25, 4:30-7:30pm.

Tool Training: Tablesaw Fundamentals AUGUST

 

Description:

The table saw is the center of most woodshops. Almost all woodworking projects, from fine furniture to general construction, use a table saw. When used incorrectly, however, it is also one of the most dangerous tools in the shop. In this four-week class, learn to use a table saw safely and accurately, and reinforce these techniques by constructing a small, simple project.

In the first session, we will cover three of the most common cuts; ripping, cross cutting, and dados. Students will learn to change blades, and set up simple jigs to precisely cut parts. In the second and third sessions we will make a small project from sheet goods. We will cover the best way to lay out parts, and how to cut and fit them to achieve accurate results. The project and the skills learned from it provide excellent fundamentals for larger projects students may wish to undertake on their own. In the fourth session students will get tested out on the tool, to verify their comfort using the tool without supervision as members of the Asylum or in their own shops.

Class Goals:

At the end of this class the students should be comfortable using a table saw safely, including changing blades and using dado blades and a variety of sleds and miter gauges. 

Students will also have an understanding of how to lay out simple woodworking projects to make the most efficient use of their time and materials, and will have a completed a small project to take home!

By the end of the four weeks, students will be fully tested out and ready to use the tablesaw unsupervised as members at Artisan's Asylum or in their own shops!

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age. No previous woodshop training required!

Materials Provided:

All necessary materials will be provided, and are covered by a $15 materials fee included in the cost of registration.

What to Bring:

Please dress appropriately for shop work: closed toed shoes, no baggy clothing or draping sleeves, no dangling jewelry or accessories, and something with which to tie back long hair.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst, taught in the Student Union Craft Center for most of her time there, and took woodworking classes in the art department.

Carolyn has been observing and building in her Dad's workshop since before she can remember. She built her first toolbox as a wee lass with her Dad's help when she was probably 8 or 10. Her personal projects tend to range from jewelry stands to boxes to small furniture. She comes from a family of professional builders and remodelers, and has helped frame, drywall, trim, paint, etc. many a structure, including her parents' home improvement projects, the construction of an addition to a family summer cottage, volunteering on several Habitat for Humanity sites, and supervising and teaching 14-18 year olds in week-long trips rebuilding houses in the Gulf Coast for three summers post-Hurricane Katrina. Teaching a 15 year old girl to cut and hang crown molding and seeing her amazement and the homeowner's gratitude in her results has been one of her most rewarding teaching experiences.

SIRSY @ Johnny D's
“The Boston Globe sums it up: ‘Little band, big sound’. But the ONLY thing little about SIRSY is that there’s just two of them. The rest is bigger than balls on a buffalo.” SIRSY plays rock and soul that's chock full of sing along melodies, sincerity and heart, and just the right amount of sass. Lead Vocalist, Melanie, also plays a full drum kit - standing up (she’s featured in Modern Drummer and endorsed by Vater Percussion & Paiste Cymbals). She also plays bass on a keyboard with her drumstick and flute, too. Guitarist, Rich, plays a well loved and road worn Rickenbacker through a pedal board full of vintage effects. He also plays bass... on a keybaord with his feet. SIRSY plays 200+ shows per year all over the US. They've shared stages with: Maroon 5, Train, Grace Potter, Lifehouse, RaRaRiot, Third Eye Blind, Collective Soul, Blues Traveler, Cheap Trick and many. They've played SXSW, the Viper Room, Gramercy Theatre, Beachland Ballroom, World Café Live, & many more. SIRSY’s latest CD was produced by Grammy-winners, Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade (Radiohead, Hole, Dresden Dolls, Pixies). "Little band, big sound." (-The Boston Globe, MA) "One of most powerful and flexible voices you'll ever hear. Clever, smart songs with more hooks than a tackle box." (-Times Union, NY) "Killer rock guitar riffs that are every schoolboy’s wet dream." (-Instrumental Magazine Scotland) "Inventive rock and roll." (-Hartford Courant, CT)
