August Noise JP (Summer 2011) Beth McDonald
August Noise JP is a surprise outdoor concert series in Jamaica Plain, curated by Beth McDonald. Each of approximately seven concerts will feature an ensemble from NEC in public spaces around JP, such as The Arboretum, Jamaica Pond, Stony Brook Field, and the Farmers Market, etc. The underground series will be organized without any formal marketing—information about the time and location of concerts will be leaked through Twitter and SMS alerts. The impromptu musical happenings will draw in people passing by and hopefully build a following of JP residents who might not otherwise interact with diverse genres of music.
