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 Suitcase Junket
Matt Lorenz is a Vermont born musician, visual artist and tinkerer currently based in Massachusetts. "I aim to write good songs and sing them honestly" says Lorenz. He does that and more. The Suitcase Junket's artistic vision is one of salvaged and repurposed objects, images and emotions. His innovative junk-percussion constructions, original album art featuring inanimate objects with wings, and the high craft of his songwriting all combine to create a unique and engaging entity with a force and style all its own. Lorenz's self-taught throat-singing adds a fascinating edge to the overall sound. "I'm interested in the hidden voices that reside within things: the songs stuck inside instruments, the story behind the object, the mysterious weight of a word, the harmonic sequence that's in every note waiting to be broken as light through a prism."

Training: Manual Milling Machine August II

Description:

The manual mills in the Asylum machine shop are amazingly versatile tools- they can be used to create precisely dimensioned parts out of aluminum, steel, or plastic, cut sheets of metal to size, or miter tubes for welding. This class will teach you how to setup a bridgeport-style mill for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to precisely measure distances down to one-thousandth of an inch, and how to make facing cuts and drill holes using a wide variety of mill bits and accessories.

Successful completion of this course will provide students with the knowledge needed to participate in tool testing for the Artisan’s Asylum Bridgeport mills.

This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill.

Class Goals:

Students will learn to:

  • Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes
  • Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials
  • Understand how to Calculate appropriate Speeds and Feeds for milling operations
  • Securely fixture a small piece of aluminum stock in the vise
  • Identify a variety of end mills and their uses.
  • "Face", or cut a side of, a piece of aluminum stock to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish.
  • Find the edge of a piece of stock, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge.
  • “Zero” the X, Y, and Z axis as they relate to fixtured stock
  • Understand the concept of Backlash and how it relates to using the Bridgeport Mills
  • Know the difference between Climb Milling and Conventional milling
  • Clean and maintain the mill.

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required, but Hands-On Metalworking Tools training recommended (see upcoming available dates listed at http://artisansasylum.com/current-classes/#sectionmetalworking). Students must be at least 18 years old.

What to Bring:

Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, short-sleeve shirt. All other materials needed for class will be provided.

Instructor: 

Damian Ward began working with metal when he brought home an oxy-acetylene rig in 2009 and began welding. Arc welding followed soon after, along with melting and casting aluminum. Since joining the Artisan's Asylum, Damian has spent almost all of his free time in the machine shop and has lost track of how many hours he has spent in front of the mill. 

In addition to his metalworking, Damian has worked on a dairy farm, pulled network cable, worked for Lockheed Martin, and practiced criminal law. Damian's favorite Doctor Who companion is Wilfred Mott.

Event Time:

Session 1: Tuesday, May 5, 7:15pm to 9:15pm.

Session 2: Tuesday, May 12, 7:15pm to 9:15pm.


REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form

CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

The real stars of the show will be a collection of beautiful antique motorcycles, painstaking hand-restored by J. Shia and her talented team atMadhouse Motors.    The partnership was originally conceived by Boston nightlife maven Rebekah Powers of Wrecking Dog Charm School. Powers sought to realize Shia's dream of offering a perfectly executed espresso as her customers contemplated purchasing one of her exquisite antique machines. Bojorquez hoped to amp up visual appeal in his already popular, striking, airy restaurant. Powers hammered out the logistics and the creative trio is thrilled to present the results.    The motorcycle installation will rotate every six weeks at La Brasa, and will eventually be complimented by like-minded works of art for purchase. Each rotation, curated by Shia (motorcycles) and Powers (art & entertainment) will kick off with a ticketed-event featuring live music and more.   La Brasa: www.labrasasomerville.com/ Madhouse Motors: http://madhousemotors.com/ Goldblood & Associates: https://goldblood444.bandcamp.com/

Jumpcuts
with Sports, Christie Prince
Jumpcuts began as the brainchild of Andy Shankman, a longtime fixture on the Baltimore music scene who cut his teeth working on tour for the band Lake Trout. Shankman formed the first incarnation of Jumpcuts after a flurry of songwriting activity that produced most of the songs on Electrickery. The songs were largely composed on guitar and then transposed to synthesizer, Shankman slowly piecing together tracks on MIDI with best friend and co-arranger Gideon Breidegam. The gleaming audio lines were then powered through amps, recorded, and given muscle by producer Rob Girardi (Beach House) and drummer David Bergander (Celebration) at Lord Baltimore Studios.True to its title, Electrickery is a sneaky, cleverly assembled album that blurs the line between organic and electronic, played and programmed. Through its various live lineups, Jumpcuts has been driven by guitars, synthesizers, and even classically trained string players, and on record the songs operate somewhere between synth pop and brooding, bombastic rock.

Art to Part: Design with the Laser Cutter
Description: Comprehensive, step by step learning on the laser cutter from beginning to end. It's all well and good to know how to hit the power button and not set the asylum alight, it's a whole other to know how to design for it, build the cut file, execute the project, and have a real thing! We'll be making boxes of our own size and design, all the while getting a handle on the principles of the software and hardware. This also covers the full laser training and testing process. Class Goals: Understand the whole process from design to execution on the laser cutter in this comprehensive class. By the end, students should be able to design for the laser cutter, have a basic seed of inkscape, and safely use the laser cutter. Prerequisites: No experience required! Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials: a sketchpad and writing utensile, and anything for notes. If you want to use your own laptop, come with inkscape already downloaded. Instructor Biography: Ecco is a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She's a local artist with a passion for steel, specializing in creating wearable metal accessories (like the horns in her picture, or a set of wings for her back) and designing static and kinetic sculptures. Her previous work has included flapping pterodactyls, moth sculptures, a rideable dragon, and several other pieces.  Event Time: Session 1: Tuesday, September 15, 7:30 - 9:30PM Session 2: Tuesday, September 22, 7:30 - 9:30PM Session 3: Tuesday, September 29, 7:30 - 9:30PM Session 4: Tuesday, October 6, 7:30 - 9:30PM   REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form. CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor
"A POWERFUL AND MOVING TESTIMONIAL." Called "a powerful and moving testimonial to the impact of childhood sexual abuse throughout a lifetime" by Clinician Megan L. Doyle of SOAR (Survivors of Abuse in Recovery), Michael Broussard's interactive one-man show "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" has been praised by mental health professionals and survivors. STORYTELLING, AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION AND IMPROVISATION The show utilizes an innovative mix of storytelling, audience participation and improvisation to spark a real-time discussion on the impact of sexual abuse on children and adult survivors. Audience feedback is solicited throughout the performance, not just at the end, and that feedback helps shape the performance. Thus, no two performances of "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" are alike. Each is a singular event, a true collaboration between artist and audience. "DOCTOR WHO SAVED MY LIFE." As a young scifi geek, Broussard found solace in, of all things, the British TV program Doctor Who. Learn more at the show. SURVIVORS BECOME THRIVERS Survivors are encouraged to attend and share their own stories in the feedback breaks. Spouses, significant others and friends of survivors will also find the show informative and uplifting. And while the show is on a fairly somber topic, there is also a healthy amount of humor, and ultimately, a powerful message of hope and healing: There is life after trauma and not only can we survive, we can thrive. SOME MATERIAL MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR ALL AUDIENCES.

Cost: 7 - 15 USD (Fri, 25 Sep 2015 20 )
The International V
Its that time of the year again, the showcase of the (now polished) immortals, The International!  As a schedule hasn't been released yet the start and end time is an estimate but never fear we have no time restrictions with this venue so we will be open as early or late as necessary.  

We will be viewing the event on a 15 ft projector screen with a professional sound system and wired connection, we are not sure whether we will be using twitch or the reborn beta client yet.  There will be raffles same as previous years, keyboards, mice, headsets, potentially a new custom built gaming rig if attendance is sufficient to warrant it.  

The event will also be all ages so feel free to bring the little ones, always best to get them started early.  Tickets will be $15 in advance and come with one free raffle ticket (normally $5) and $20 at the door.  This is to cover the cost of renting the venue, equipment, chairs and tables, and raffle prizing.  

As always pre ordering tickets is almost mandatory, we don't want to have to turn people away at the door so please pre order at this link: https://ticketbud.com/events/b83cbfae-28dd-11e5-bc74-4bbda27a89e4

Also please register with the official Valve list, although the functionality seems to be a bit broken at the moment: http://www.dota2.com/pubstomps/listings/#36

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with us, we look forward to seeing everyone for the best day in the year of Dota.
