Best place to hear a local celeb's record collection
They say you can tell a lot about people by browsing through their record collections. In fact, these days
you can tell a lot about people if they even have a collection of vinyl LPs. The B-Side Lounge, which has
become one of the more popular off-the-beaten-path hangouts in Cambridge, puts this theory to the test
every Monday night - which, as everyone knows, is the one night of the week that you find the real
professionals out drinking. Every week, a different local celebrity - or sometimes a pair of celebrities -
brings in his or her record collection and guest DJs for a few hours. You never really know who you're
going to get or what he or she might have in store, but past celebrity DJs have included veteran local
rockers like Asa Brebner, younger upstart rockers like Kevin Stevenson of the Shods, and rock scribes like
Tom Kielty. If nothing else, it's a good opportunity to knock a few back while playing "name that tune"
with your friends.
