On Satyrday, September 10th...come dance with your friends in thee gnomefatty kollektiv at the American Legion Marsh Post in Cambridge!! On the banks of the Charles River, this spot features scenic views, picnic tables, and a full bar for those 21 & over. As usual, we can't announce the location until the day of the event, but we will proceed RAIN OR SHINE if at all possible.

We start with an open community drum & music jam at 6:30, followed by five hours of diverse music presented by some amazing DJs -- XANTHUS & CARNAGE, SELSYN, GEORGIE MICHAEL, the ever-random DJ PUSSYWILLOW, and, making a rare U.S. apperance, direct from Iceland, THE GENTLY BROTHERS!

All this fun for ONLY $5 (more if you can, less if you can't). 18+ to enter, 21+ to drink. NO OUTSIDE BEVERAGES allowed, but please bring an empty container for water (and maybe some bug spray, too!).

Come early, stay late, and dance your ass off!

We are SUPER excited to welcome some amazing new talent and some incredible longtime friends of thee gnomefatty kollektiv to the tables! Xanthus and (Domenic) Carnage will be throwing down an EPIC tag-team set which you must not miss! Selsyn is coming back to play a "peak hour" set that will blow your mind. From recently-bankrupt ICELAND, the Gently Brothers will be oh-so-gentle on us. Newcomer George Michael (not the one from WHAM!) makes his first appearance at Circle, and DJ Pussywillow starts the night by playing songs you've NEVER heard in decent company!

Even more, we are excited to dance and play with YOU, outside, in these waning days of summer!

Come early to play and dance with the drummers... stay late and dance to the very last note (and then, help us clean up!).

There will be plenty of opportunities to HELP OUT during & after the party. In particular, we need volunteers for the LEAVE NO TRACE crew. Check in at the door when you arrive if you're willing to pitch in for a bit during the party.

party info:

There is ample, legal, on-street parking along Mount Auburn Street and neighboring streets. We have been advised that the BB&N School, across the street from the Marsh Post, has tolerated parking in their PRIVATE lot in the past, but we make no guarantees. The parking lots across the river on Soldiers Field Road are controlled by the DCR, and the posted signs say they are closed at dusk. Your safest legal option is Mt. Auburn Street.

Red Line to Harvard Square and then walk towards the Charles River down JFK Street. The bridge that you 1st come to is the Lars Anderson Bridge. Take a Right before the bridge and follow Memorial drive with the river on your left until you reach the Eliot Bridge. There will be signs pointing to go right to Arlington. Walk left instead and take the foot path towards the bridge (the 1st building you see on your left will be the Cambridge Boat House (THIS IS NOT US). Go around the boat house and walk UNDER the Eliot Bridge. The next building you see is the Marsh Post.

The address is 5 Greenough Blvd Cambridge, MA 02138 (Marsh Post 442). DO NOT PARK HERE. Park on Mt. Auburn Street, or park at your own risk in the private lot of the BB&N School across the street.

Note that Greenough Boulevard is basically the extension of Memorial Drive, which ends at Mt. Auburn Hospital. The Marsh Post is located just to the south/southwest of the Eliot Bridge landing. (The Eliot Bridge comes from Soldiers Field Road, toward Arlington and the Fresh Pond Parkway / Cambridge.) The intersection can be a bit confusing, so leave a little extra time, and have patience with yourself if you miss a turn. You WILL find us! :-)
