Regular price tickets through Ticketmaster are $50 (+ fees) for Friday night and $75 (+ fees) for Saturday and Sunday, so the discounted rate through Goldstar Boston sounds like a good deal to me.

Free Boston Calling Block Parties from May to September!

Free Boston Calling Block Party

It’s starting to feel like summer!

Boston Calling Block Party series is returning every Thursday from May 14, 2015 to September 17, 2015 from 5-8pm with free music in Dewey Square!

In addition to the free weekly series, there will also be a monthly series on Summer Street Plaza in Downtown Crossing the first Wednesday of every month until September, except for the first free concert which will kickoff on Thursday, May 7, 2015.

For more information or for the band lineup, check out the Boston Calling Facebook page.

This is a great way to catch free music in Boston with a great outdoor atmosphere! However, I do believe (please correct me if I’m wrong) the concert series is 21+ because a cash bar is available so please keep that in mind.

Have you been to the Boston Calling Block Party series before? Will you be going again this year?
