SCOUT PICKS: August 9 – 11

With those humid, don’t-want-to-leave-the-apartment days of July behind us, Cambridge has just a few weeks to relax before Harvard students return for the hustle and bustle of the fall semester. Here are the best events for a night out on the town – just be sure to bring a sweater since the nights are getting […]

SCOUT PICKS: August 2 – 4

August is upon us, and so the dog days of summer come rolling in, with enough weird weather to last well through the fall. But never fear, Scout has found a list of the ultimate Cambridge activities to keep you enjoying the season rain or shine!


Q&A: MC Kabir and The Dub Down

London-born, Cambridge-raised hip hop artist, MC Kabir, describes his music as “a never ending journey of personal observation in song form with rhythm.” His art is inspiring not just from a musical standpoint, but from a literary one as well. Perhaps that’s why his most recent album, “Olympic Gold,” currently ranks No. 4 on the […]


Scout Out: C2W Market

Cambridge has eight farmers markets: seven for the days of the week, all neatly arranged and color-coded on a pretty flier; and one more that just won’t play by the rules. The Central Square Wednesday (or “C2W”) Market, Cambridge’s upstart farmers market, was founded by JJ Gonson (best known as the head of the Somerville-based […]


Hanging with Solstice Circus

By George LeVines Circus: technicolor tents with cotton candy abound. Impatiently pacing big cats and the high flying trapeze. Injury prone clowns running circles to a blaring recording of Entry of the Gladiators. And that sweet waft of dung-soaked hay cooking in the summer heat. Right? For the local Solstice Circus, not exactly. Big things, […]


Scout Weekend July 26-28

It may be the dog days of summer, but things are definitely still kicking around town. From the old (horror parody cult classics, anyone?) to the new (the more froyo the merrier!), there is plenty to do this weekend, and Scout is here to show you the way.


Man on a Mission

By Nick Cox When Roger C. Miller first moved to Boston in the late 1970s, it was to pursue a career in piano tuning. Miller, now best known as the lead singer of the seminal Boston post-punk band Mission of Burma, was already a lifelong musician, most notably as the bassist of Sproton Layer, a […]


Scout Pick: Krill Forever!

If you’ve ever been through, as they say, “a rough patch,” then you’ll probably appreciate Krill. A fixture of Boston’s underground music scene since 2010, the JP-based trio began to garner national attention this summer thanks to their beautiful and heartfelt sophomore album Lucky Leaves, which came out in June. Lucky Leaves was initially available […]


What’s New?: Paint is on its way

If you thought that the only place eating and painting mix well is at the kid’s table, then think again. After a successful petition for a beer and wine license on May 14, owner and manager Leslie Belkner is getting ready to open Paint, a whole new kind of art bar, with a target opening […]


Scout Out: Light Eye Mind

Need to relax but can’t afford a massage? Then head over to Central Square’s Blanc Gallery (110 Brookline St.) and take a spin on the Hypnagogic Light Machine! Created by the London-based Light Eye Mind collective, the Light Machine is a circular array of small LED strobe lights surrounding a central halogen bulb. Participants sit […]
