AERONAUT Allston is back!!!
We've been packing crowds into the awesome new outdoor community program and performance space at Zone 3's hub of activity, 267 Western Ave in Allston. It's an upgrade from the blacktop parking lot of the past two years – but it still feels like home!
Our 3rd season showcases the best in local bands and musicians, fantastic local food trucks, and great beer!

FEATURED MUSICAL ACTS for WED JULY 11
We're sure to have a packed crowd so get there EARLY for the best seats on the lawn.
The Country Hits (6pm)
One of our favorite legacy bands who have graced AERONAUT's various stages over the years, this will sadly be the FAREWELL SHOW for this terrific band. 100% certified inauthentic classic country hits. Nothing but manufactured twang. Guaranteed or this songs on us!
The Living Wage (7:30pm)
Another of our most trusted musical collaborators, Greg gets our vote for "the official troubadour of Somerville." You'll hear so much great American musical history baked into his engaging live shows!
Some artists find inspiration in romantic break-ups, others find it in rediscovering their roots. For Greg Klyma, it came from both.
“Old school country, classic rock, and singer-songwriter folk are three styles of music that I love. I love to listen to 'em. I love to play 'em,” he says, “my wheelhouse finds me standing in the long shadows of Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Tom Petty, and Mick & Keef, to name a few.”
His birthdate puts him squarely in the middle of Generation X, but Greg Klyma is an old-school troubadour. His enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals make him one of those rare young artists who is carrying the torch of Woody and Ramblin' Jack. He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter. It's the timeless art of the true troubadour, keeping alive the American folk tradition.
