  1. i loved the boston science museum in the 70’s. sadly, it sucks trying to get in and out of town now.

    maybe i’ll drag my card reader and nail gun in and do a few tunes for the folks.

    1. We’ve held events at a dozen different places around Massachusetts, and the Museum of Science is one of our favorites because it’s both accessible by Green Line and car. Not many venues have both a parking garage and a dedicated T stop.

      1. yup! lots of good mass transit available in mass. I don’t go out at night anymore. can’t see well at all anymore. have a good time! sounds like a blast! maybe I can get my kids to go. :0)
