So today was FINALLY the day when we got to sit down at Harvard Station (no guitar guy around for a change) and you know what? now I understand why it’s such a hard spot to get
Sitting here to play made us recover our faith in Cambridge in terms of appreciating art because lets face it, people in this area tend to be a little bit of a stuck up and their level of appreciation has a “high standard” regardless…
I live in Cambridge, trust me on this one! heh…
But anyway, people here were very nice and welcoming, many just stood and watch (including an adorable kid and his mom that even asked which “song” were we playing) and we liked it so so much that we decided that the best would be to do our two performances there and it was a quite good decision, let me tell you
As a lady who was listening put it “it’s just so nice to have these kind of things here!”
I think what helps Harvard Square to be special is that it’s also a melting pot, just like Downtown Crossing… It is only in these two places where we had people actually applauding after we finished performing a piece… It’s a great feeling!
Another interesting thing the day brought was that a friend of us, Paul Sayed (shout out to Paul!) came by and took some pictures of us that we could use for many things so we had that going for us, which is nice
Here’s a link to the gallery (again, click on the picture to access the slide show):
Tomorrow is gonna be a very warm and humid day so we’ll see where we end up!
For now that’s all and again, remember to come to Pickman Hall at the Longy School of Music of Bard College (27 Garden St, Cambridge MA, 02138) at 7:30 pm on July 2nd to our closing concert! free admission so bring a friend!
Have a good night and thanks a million for reading!
