Five Reasons to Go to the POSTunderground Instead of Woodstock

1.) Less traffic: All major roadways surrounding Bethel, NY, are shut down, whereas traffic on Washington Street is moving briskly.

2.) Better Food: Festival vendors ran completely out of food yesterday, with two days still to go, and local residents have begun delivering homemade sandwiches to ravenous concertgoers.  Why eat sketchy egg salad on dried bread when the POSTunderground offers free pizza, hot from the oven? (Rhetorical question.)

3.) Less Mud: It rained last night and it’s going to rain on and off for the next two days.  The mud is ankle deep everywhere and the even the bandstand is flooded.  The Grateful Dead keep getting shocked by their equipment as they try to perform.  Meanwhile, the POSTunderground House Band (Phil Grenadier, trumpet, John Mulroy, piano, Greg Loughman, bass, Greg Conroy, drums) will be holding forth from dry ground, sheltered from the elements in air-conditioned splendor (8 to 11 PM).

4.) No Bad Acid: Do you really want to be tripping when you’re standing in mud in the rain eating sketchy egg salad?  Cold beer from a pint glass is so much better in so many ways!

5.) Unforgettable Music: It’s probably worth waiting to see Jimi Hendrix, except he won’t go on until 9 AM Monday morning.  Otherwise, nothing too memorable is going to happen, whereas unforgettable musical moments are the norm on Friday nights at the POSTunderground.  Woodstock?  Be there or be glad you skipped the whole thing and went to the POSTunderground instead!

The POSTunderground is located at 386 Washington Street (downstairs), Brookline MA,  Admission and food are always free and the full cash bar features veterans post prices!

Set One: Closed for Renovations

In the long run, a wide range of jazz groups from the greater Brookline community will perform on Sundays, but this will take time to evolve.  Consequently, Set One will be closed for the immediate future.  Watch this space for further developments!

Sunday Jazz Hang

Jazz is thriving academically but it's on life support economically.  So where do aspiring jazz player go to meet and perform together?  (Rhetorical question.)  Every Sunday from 3 to 6 PM, the POSTunderground Community House Band (Juliet Eastland, piano, John Purcell, saxophone, Yuki Kodama, bass, Simone Cooke, drums) holds forth from 3 to 6 PM, playing nothing but the finest jazz standards and compositions.   Aspiring jazz players of all ages and levels are cordially invited to sit in and road test their chops in a thoroughly noncompetitive environment.  This leisurely three-hour stretch of time isn't structured like an open jam session. Aspiring players are featured with the house band one or two at a time, allowing listeners a chance to focus on each musician individually.  Food and admission are always free at the POSTunderground, so plan to chow down, hang out, and listen as well as play.

3 - 6 PM
