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!

Robotics, Sensing and Imaging: Intro to the Raspberry Pi Zero
Description: The course will cover the steps necessary to configure the Raspberry Pi Zero as an embedded controller for robotics, sensing and image acquisition as well as more sophisticated image manipulation and image parsing. The recent launch of the Pi Zero as a low powered variant of the Raspberry Pi family of boards ( Pi A+, Pi B2 and Pi 3 ) has accelerated the use of these boards in a host of new and innovative sensing and embedded imaging applications. The Raspberry Pi fboards are interchangable in much of their functionality and components and software which can be made to work on one variant, will work on another. This interchagability includes the operating system itself where the uSD cards which have been booted on one variant may be plugged into another variant and shown to work seamlessly. As part of the class, students will build their own custom Pi Zero hardware module and work with it and development boards based on the Pi 2B and 3 to optimize the embedded platform and software modules. The class will utilize a simple Python toolchain for software development and software driver modules will be provided for the UB camera and other hardware components. Interfacing components to the Zero through the USB, SPI and I2C interfaces will be discussed. Python is a very simple language to learn, and all aspects of the language that are required for the class, will be covered in details - no prior knowledge of Python is assumed. A variant of the OpenCV software library running under Python will be made available for the class which will allow sophisticated detection algorithms to be used for image interrogation of the acquired images. Output data methods will be discussed including streaming sensing data and images through WiFi using a Flask server from within the Python acquisition program. Consideration will be given to the power management challenges necessary to configure a embedded or image streaming system. The class will end with a review of battery and solar powered operation and true headless operation of the Pi Zero will be demonstrated with the full automation of the system and the removal of the keyboard, mouse, display or X11 windowing in order to conserve power. Note that two teachers will be present throughout the classes allowing for both class presentation time and hands-on laboratory time to be carried out seamlessly. During class, students will construct their own headless (without display, keyboard or mouse) test system comprising the following: Pi Zero uSD card with RasPi-Jessie+ (the plus denoting thr addition of the software toolchain ) RaPi compatible camera Sensors and simple interfaced sensor board Mounting hardware Class Goals: Students will learn the following: Session 1: Raspberry Pi hardware overview (The Pi A+, Pi 2B, Pi 3 and Pi Zero Hardware test system setup (including peripherals) The Raspi-Jessie Linux operating system; Bootup and system operation Advanced Linux (Advanced setup options, installing programs, shell scripts, superuser permissions) Programming Tools and learning to program in Python Writing simple Python programs Testing the serial interface Setting up Wifi Peripherals and add-on sensors Session 2: Hardware interfacing challenges The DGIO interface and how to access Overview pf Python modules (advanced) The Python interface driver module Interfacing components to the SPI interface Interfacing conponents to the I2C interface USB and SPI interfaced cameras Acquiring images off cameras through Python Installing a computer vision Python library; OpenCV Advanced computer vision with OpenCV and Python Session 3: X11 windowing and headless operation Testing sensors with headless operation Writing advanced data acquisition algorithms The Flask server Image storage and streaming through WiFi Testing power requirements with different configurations Battery and Solar operation Discussion of packaging for external operstion Prerequisites: Students must be at least 18 years of age, have a working familiarity with at least one computer flavor (Mac, Windows or Linux), and know how to install programs and device drivers. This class is suitable for beginners with no working knowledge of the Raspberry Pi. All aspects of the Linux operating system (Jessie) and the Python development system will be covered in detail. Materials: All other materials necessary for operation of the systems will be made available for the duration of the class. You may bring your laptop and a Raspberry Pi if you have one, but otherwise, all necessary hardware will be provided. Event Schedule: Session 1: Monday, 6/9/16, 7:00-9:30pm Session 2: Monday, 6/16/16, 7:00-9:30pm Session 3:Monday, 6/23/16, 7:00-9:30pm Class Minimum:This class will not run with fewer than 6 students.

Tool Training: Manual Milling Machine - Early June 2016
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痴 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. 纏ero 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 Understand the difference between Climb Milling and Conventional milling Clean and maintain the mill. Prerequisites: No previous experience required, but Metalworking Tool Training 101 recommended (see upcoming available dates listed athttp://artisansasylum.com/current-classes/#sectionmetalworking). Students must be at least 18 years old and must be able to safely reach all equipment. What to Bring: Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, short-sleeve shirt. All other materials needed for class will be provided. Event Time: Session 1: Tuesday, June 7, 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Session 2: Tuesday, June 14, 7:00pm to 9:00pm. 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.

Nuala Kennedy with Eamon O'Leary
Who reading this, remembers the magic of a summer's night in 2015 when the power went out in Davis Square and these two stood on stage for four magic candlelit songs without microphone or speakers! The soul of the music is in Nuala and Eamon and they are coming back!!! Love it! Video below is from that same night. (Thanks Stephen Shephard for posting) Nuala Kennedy is an Irish singer and flute player whose music features liltingly beautiful vocals, adventurous instrumentation, and an imaginative mix of influences. Although she is rooted in the Celtic music of her native Ireland and adopted homeland of Scotland, Nuala has gained critical attention for her eclectic cross-genre work. Eamon O'Leary is originally from Dublin and now a fixture on the trad Irish scene in New York where he lives. A multi-instrumentalist and find singer and harmonizer, he has performed a few times now in the Backroom Series with Jefferson Hamer as part of The Murphy Beds, and as part of the trio called The Alt that featured John Doyle as well as Nuala. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. 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. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. 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!

Andy Irvine
When Andy arrived at the Burren last time he played a few years ago, he had just arrived from Ireland but into Newark and driven thru traffic to Davis Square. I was nervous that this veteran would be exhausted. Ha!!! It was one of the best concerts I ever heard him give! What history! What soul! What impact! What dedication to his art! It was one of the most anticipated concerts in the series to that date and it exceeded expectations. Andy Irvine is truly an icon of traditional and now, contemporary Irish music. As a member of Sweeny's Men, then Planxty, and most recently Patrick Street, his ensemble playing has created its own unique style of approach to the music. As a solo artist, his original songs have simply become part of the tradition, and his collaborations with Paul Brady, and Dick Gaughan are the recordings of legend. Take a listen to this rendition of his hero Woody Guthrie's aptly named, Never Tire of the Road. So glad Andy hasn't tired of the road, is energised by it, and coming back to us in Boston. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. 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. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. Tickets prices vary, 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!

Monophonics

"One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!" Al Bell (Record producer, songwriter, executive, and co-owner of legendary Stax Records)Raised amid the rich musical culture and history of the San Francisco Bay Area, Monophonics proudly carry the torch through the generations into today's musical landscape. Holding on to tradition, but by no means purists of any kind, they play their own brand of music known as "Psychedelic Soul."The 2012 release of Monophonics last album In Your Brain saw the band pulling influences from such acts as early Funkadelic, Sly and The Family Stone and the The Temptation's Norman Whitfield produced records. With the new album, Sound of Sinning (April 1, 2015 on Transistor Sound Records), the band has grown in all areas of record making and felt a need to explore other important influences. While the group has come to cherish these inspirations, with Sound of Sinning they started venturing beyond, to the groups that were inspiring those soul acts to embrace the psychedelic sound of the 60's and 70's. Bands such as The Zombies, The Beatles, Beach Boys and Pink Floyd. Even with the experimentation of new musical territory, they display the sound that people know and love about Monophonics. Touching on Northern soul, doo-wop, rock and roll, Psych pop, and cinematic music, Monophonics show off their diversity while remaining true to their roots. Overall it's heartfelt music and old school vibes, without losing sight of the present. This is music steeped in that timeless feeling when people could write and produce songs that you could listen to over and over again. Sound of Sinning was produced by Kelly Finnigan & Ian McDonald and recorded on an old Tascam eight-track 1/4" tape machine at Transistor Sound Studios in San Rafael, CA.Monophonics is Austin Bohlman (Drums), Myles O'Mahony (Bass/Background Vocals), Ian McDonald (Guitar/Background Vocals), Ryan Scott (Trumpet/Back- ground Vocals/Percussion) & Kelly Finnigan (Keys/Lead Vocals) along with a rotating 2nd horn usually filled by Nadav Nirenberg (Trombone) from Ikebe Shakedown and Breakdown
