    Location: Great Lawn Room, 200 River's Edge Drive, Medford, MA and Tufts Dock

    Join the Mystic River Watershed Association for a 2-hour session to learn how to be a part of its baseline water quality monitoring program — collect data that informs the EPA grade for the Mystic River! No prior experience is necessary.

    Being a monitor involves a 1-2 hour time commitment per month, early in the morning, between 6AM and 8AM, to collect samples in the field with a partner, and to bring them to a central location.  The training will discuss details of the logistics, correct sample collection and handling techniques, processing samples, and why the data we get from our baseline program is important.

    GA-20 Free Outdoor Show at The Porch

    August 14, 2020
    Location: The Porch, 175 River's Edge Drive, Medford, MA

    The Porch is excited to host hometown boys done good, GA-20! This event Thursday, August 13, 6-9 pm is free, but please call ahead to reserve a table: 781-874-9357

    GA-20 was formed by friends Pat Faherty and Matthew Stubbs in Boston, MA in 2018. The project was born out of their mutual love of heavy traditional Blues, R&B, and Rock & Roll of the late 50s and early 60s. Faherty and Stubbs bonded over legendary artists like Lazy Lester, J.B. Lenoir, Earl Hooker, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and Junior Wells. Feeling a void in current music, the duo have set out to write, record and perform a modern version of this beloved art form. Joined by drummer Tim Carman in 2019, GA-20 is a trio of 2 guitars, vocals and drums. Raw, passionate and honest performance, both on stage and in the studio, is the only goal. GA-20 released their debut album “Lonely Soul” Oct 18th 2019 on Karma Chief / Colemine Records. The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard blues charts.

    Stubbs has spent the past 11 years as guitarist for Blues legend Charlie Musselwhite. During that time he has also backed up and toured with such Blues giants as John Hammond, James Cotton, Junior Watson and James Harman. Stubbs also leads his own original instrumental psych-rock band, ‘The Antiguas’.
