About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is an urban industrial city located northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. 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 and has a total population of over 77,400 people making it the most densely populated community in New England!

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!

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 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.

Introduction to 3D Modeling: Solidworks FEB/MARCH

 

 

 

Description:

3D modeling software is used worldwide in professional settings like engineering, animation, product design, architecture, and more. Designing parts in 3D modeling environments allows you to develop an idea in full before you cut any material, and then either make parts automatically on computer-enabled tools (such as the CNC mills, routers, plasma cutters, and 3D printers available at Artisan's Asylum) or develop a set of drawings that allow you or other people to create your parts from plans. In this class, students will learn 2D sketching techniques, 3D modeling techniques for parts and assemblies, and 2D display of 3D models in drawings, using Solidworks 2012. Students will have opportunities to model and recreate real parts and assemblies, create drawings that can be used in computer-controlled manufacturing equipment, and prepare files for 3D printing.

Class Goals:

By the end of class, students will be able to create well-constrained 2D sketches, 3D parts and assemblies, and 2D representations of 3D parts and assemblies. Students will know how to create files for transfer to CNC tools, and will know how to prepare files for 3D printing.

Prerequisites:

Experience with a Windows environment. Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

Solidworks software and example objects for modeling will be provided.

What to Bring:

If possible, students should bring a project or an idea for projects to model in class as an informative exercise.

Instructor Biography:

Chris Fitzhugh is a mechanical engineer, design consultant, and entrepreneur currently working in 3D sensing and imaging and robotics. A graduate of the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, he's been involved in projects you might recognize around Artisan's Asylum like Project Hexapod's Stompy, and started his own digital intelligence company. An avid hobbyist woodworker, Chris has also been teaching woodworking classes at Artisan's Asylum since its founding in 2010.

  

Made Possible By: Solidworks & CADD Edge

He was the founder of the critically acclaimed Boston Jazz Ensemble. In 1998 Gerry formed the New Guitar Summit featuring Gerry, Jay Geils of J.Geils Band fame and blues icon Duke Robillard. Gerry has also had his music placed on the Grammy Awards ballot in multiple categories three times in his career. Gerry has performed and recorded with the best in the jazz and blues worlds including Kansas City jazz legend Jay McShann, Blues shouter and saxophonist Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson,Bucky and John Pizzarella ,Duke Robillard, Karrin Allyson, Ronnie Earl, mandolinist David Grisman and saxophonists Harry Allen, Fred Lipsius and Greg Abate. In 2007 he was chosen for a Statesman Of Jazz Tour. Bassist Jesse Williams has performed and recorded around the world with a who's who of jazz and blues royalty and been recognized by the music industry for this excellence with performances on two Grammy Nominated recordings and nominations for six W.C. Handy recordings. He has performed and recorded with Bucky Pizzarelli, Howard Alden, Duke Robillard, Jay McShann, Al Kooper, Jay Geils, John Hammond, Karin Allyson, Harry Allen, Ruth Brown, Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, Maria Muldaur, Johnnie Johnson, Ronnie Earl, Henry Butler, Susan Tedeschi, Charles Neville, and others.

Mr. Williams is on the faculty of Berklee College of Music, Milton Academy, and Phillips Academy. After recording and performing together for years in the Gerry Beaudoin Trio they have developed a near telepathic connection to each other and the music. During the recording of a commercial CD project, they laid down a few tracks together during sound check not realizing that the engineer had left on the recording equipment. In a burst of complete spontaneity Gerry just started playing and and Jesse fell in behind him. Thirty six minutes later they had recorded five songs of what Gerry, a veteran of numerous recording sessions, said was, "some of the best playing either of us had ever done." Liking what they heard in playback they quickly recorded three more tracks. The result is their duo CD, Blues In The Corner Pocket.

Traffic Skills Workshop for Bicyclists - APRIL 2015

[PHOTO COMING SOON]

Description:

Want to get your bike on the road this Spring, but feeling a little hesitant to head out into traffic on your own?  Come and learn new or improve rusty traffic navigation skills.  Initially the instructor will provide a lecture and demonstration on the basic rules of the road.  Class will then be moved to a nearby parking lot for further demonstrations and student practice.  Students will then have the opportunity to get comfortable on road with the instructor and her assistant in a short, slow group ride.

Class Goals:

Students will leave this workshop with knowledge of the techniques for getting across town safely on their bike, and guidance needed to start commuting, doing errands or going for a joyride.

Prerequisites:

Students must be comfortable riding their bicycle without assistance, and at least 18 years of age.

What to Bring:

Students must bring a bicycle to ride, a helmet, and lights.  (Some lights are available to loan for the class if students do not have any.)

Instructor Biography:

“Seven” as she’s commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.

 

Event Time:

This is a one-session class, running Monday, April 13th, 2015, from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

 

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.

The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band

Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills comes Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band playing a brand of Americana and Blues that stands alone Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire best know, this trio is a force to be reckoned with. The growl of a good truck engine, the fiercest passion for his country home and family and an uncanny ability to breathe new life into old forms of music give them a pedigree many Americana acts would kill for and an ironclad work ethic keeps them on the road 250 dates a year, playing for the people with hurricane force. Locked in with an audience, the band create their own community and welcome the crowd into it, transporting them away from their troubles to joyous release, the way great musicians have done for centuries. The Rev. J. Peyton, his wife Breezy and Ben "Bird Dog" Bussell are a living breathing embodiment of the traditions and hard work ethic native to their Brown County, Indiana home. Their new album Between The Ditches is a chronicle of this lifestyle.With a reputation for their incendiary live shows well established, The Big Damn Band set out to make the album that would finally capture the same heat. Recorded at White Arc Studio in Bloomington, Indiana, the album was produced by The Rev. Peyton and Paul Mahern (John Mellencamp, Iggy Pop), and mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Dr. John, Shins). For previous albums, the band had recorded live, straight through in the same mode as a live show. Between the Ditches came together more slowly, with care. "We approached it saying we were going to make a record this time, not just a recording," explained the Rev. He used a different guitar set up on almost every track, employing two '30s National guitars, a cigar box guitar, a custom shop Gibson flattop 1929 L2 and an Airline map electric guitar. The primary amps are custom Weber amps made by Weber speakers both are one of a kind.Their fifth album, Between The Ditchesfeatures a new level of craftmanship in both recording technique and songwriting. The Rev. feels that it's their best album to date."I'm very proud of this album, the songwriting and the playing." The guitar playing alone should put the Rev. in the same class with his much revered idols. The songwriting boasts an added maturity and runs the gamut in subject matter from the barn burning, tongue in cheek, "Shut the Screen", (where "It's too dang hot and the bugs are too dang mean") to the evils of strip mining, an issue close to the hearts of this Indiana born and bred band in, "Don't Grind It Down". There seems to be a theme expressed throughout the album and stated clearly in their first single,"Devils Look Like Angels": "Devil don't live down in hell, the devil's right here doing very well"." Burn up some backroads, drive up to the storeThey just don't make 'em like this anymore"Rev Peyton's first introduction to music was his father's record collection of blues-oriented rock. At age 12 his father gave him a Kay brand guitar, eventually purchasing a Gorilla amplifier once he learned to play. And play he did. He became infatuated with pre-World War II country blues, and a desire to learn the fingerstyle picking of artists like Charlie Patton. Fingerstyle refers to using each of the right hand fingers independently in order to play the multiple parts of a musical arrangement that would normally be played by several band members. Bass, harmonic accompaniment, melody, and percussion can all be played simultaneously when playing fingerstyle.Keith Richards has said that the first time he heard Robert Johnson's recordings he asked "Who's the other guy playing with him?" Of course there wasn't one. When you listen to the songs on Between The Ditches you will be hard pressed to believe it is only one guitarist."Nothing's really freeIt all comes with a fee"Misfortune struck the Rev. early on in the form of a dehabilitating condition that caused excruciating pain in his hands. Doctors told Peyton he'd never be able to hold his left hand in fretting position again. But he persevered and when the bandages were removed, Peyton discovered a new flexibility and greater control in his fretting hand that enabled him to play in the fingerstyle that he longed to play."If it's me with youThen we'll get through"It was during his convalescence that he met his wife to be, Breezy. "I was crazy in love with her right from the start". He credits Breezy with installing a confidence in his playing and his life in general that he had previously lacked. Breezy Peyton's explosive washboard playing, sweet back-up vocals and striking good looks didn't hurt their live show either.Completing the trio is cousin Aaron Persinger on drums. "He's a human metronome", says the Rev. Persinger's drum kit gives new meaning to the term 'stripped down' and features a plastic 5 gallon bucket, for which he has a sponsorship deal for replacements. With their line-up finalized the band sold everything they owned in a garage sale and headed out on the open road."I've been broke down (BROKE DOWN) from sea to shining seaYou've been everywhere, I've been broke down thereAnd three times in Tennessee"In 2009, they toured opening for Clutch, an extensive headlining tour of Europe and began their relationship with the Van's Warped Tour, playing 12 dates in 2009 on the Kevin Says stage. They were on the entire 2010 Van's Warped Tour on the Alternative Press stage and they received the Best Band of Warped Tour award, voted by the crew, bands, and promoters. They've also toured with Flogging Molly, Rev. Horton Heat, Derek Trucks and Mofro just to name a few."Keep it between the ditches"This band is fun sure, a lot of fun, but they are for real. From virtuoso musicianship to great songwriting, Between The Ditches has got it all. All from a little Brown County, Indiana band that's got the nerve (and the right) to call themselves, Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band!

What to Bring/Wear:

Closed toe shoes, no bracelets or dangly things, and a method for securing back long hair.

Dan Landers is a former Carpenter, Union Electrician, and Firefighter, so he knows how to make and break things.

He has also worked Sikorsky aircraft on giant helicopters, and underwater robotics at Qinetiq-Foster Miller. Thanks to Artisan’s Asylum, Dan has been on Engadget, Hackaday, SpikeTV and at Maker Faires with his Node.JS tank robot; he is also one of the crazy people working on the STOMPY robot of PROJECT HEXAPOD fame. He is currently in a PhD program in engineering, but is very interested in spreading the joys and annoyances of other aspects of “Making.” Despite a paradigm shift toward technology, Dan is also a woodworking traditionalist and a wood buff, and guards and holds dear about 90 different species of wood stock, including exotics, large live edge slabs, and several extinct wood species.

Sean Tyrrell
Sean Tyrrell is no stranger to the Burren Backroom or indeed, this series. In the past, he has wooed the audience with tales and songs about Irish American Heroes, Ghostly Hunters, crazy bombers, lonely lovers, and broken hearted travellers. Last year in this series, he celebrated his recording of some of the "big" Irish songs that, to paraphrase Yogi Berra, were so popular, nobody sang them any more. One patron a few years agao, described him as "the Robert Johnson of Ireland." Can't wait to have him back with us. Click on the Video to the left to listen to a unique and brilliant reinterpretation of The Rising of the Moon. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the great trad series in the world, and looks to create intimate, informal presentations held in the atmospheric space created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings will 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. There is 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!
