Cue the drums. There’s no better way to spend the night than jamming out with your best friends and belting along to your favorite smash hits. Whether you’re a classical melophile or a rock-band groupie, seeing performers live and in person always beats your car radio. At some of Boston’s best spots for free live music, you can order a couple of cold beers and sing along all night with a round of talented musicians.
