AERONAUT, in partnership with WGBH (Boston’s PBS affiliate and local NPR station) and 99.5 WCRB, Classical Radio Boston, is thrilled to invite you to the 4th installment of the pindrop sessions!

This month's event is a one-night only, irreverent transmutation of our brewery space into a late-night nightclub to rival the heyday of dimly-lit Manhattan cabarets and piano bars, and features Brian Calhoon's popular Marimba Cabaret, a wildly flexible percussion duo infamous for electrifying Boston's nightclubs. We'll feature a smattering of hand-picked singer-performers reflecting the very best of Boston's vibrant theater and cabaret scenes. Dulcet tones + reckless emoting + re-imagined pop songs + high-octane beer = who knows what will transpire?!

This event is a co-production with our dear friends at Opus Affair, a social community for people interested in arts and culture in the Greater Boston area.

***This holiday season, give EXPERIENCES, not things! To encourage gift giving, we're extending $10 early bird ticket sales from the usual 2 days all the way until midnight on Dec. 24!***

SPECIAL GUEST SINGERS TBA! Watch this space for announcements.


pindrop is...

a new, ticketed performance series (early bird entry is only ten bucks which supports the artists!) taking place the first Sunday night of every month at the AERONAUT taproom in Somerville, shining light on the ridiculous pleasure of listening, featuring a soft focus on classical music. No stodginess. No competing sound. Shared silence. And sweet musical goodness in our steel-tanked fermentation garden. Plus a sweet after-party hang with the musicians!

The pindrop sessions are co-hosted by 99.5 WCRB’s delightful weekday afternoon host, our dear friend Mr. Chris Voss!



Early bird tickets: always $10! As a holiday gift-giving special, we're extending sales on these UNTIL Sunday, Dec. 24 (midnight).

Regular admission: $20

Regular admission + special pindrop sessions glassware + included beer pour: $25

PLEASE NOTE: All tickets come with a one drink minimum (honor system) to support the sustainability of the series.


Our lives are short; our days mucked and muddled. We crave community and connection, and the thrill of sharing genuinely beautiful experiences: a quiet room, a fleeting, incandescent moment; a shared memory over something mysterious.

In the spirit of addressing this dire social need, AERONAUT proudly presents...

~pindrop sessions~

Aiming for the unrepeatable, pindrop will present some of most individual musicians and ensembles in New England – and a few national can’t-missers. You might hear a string quartet, a women’s choir, a symphony orchestra, or a lonesome country singer. You might hear us mash up two completely different types of performances in one night. Everyone we’re fortunate enough to present on this series has something unique and beautiful to offer your ears and souls. In a brewery.

Drop your days and distractions. Recharge your beauty batteries...

...listen for the pindrop!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
We are only allowing people 21 or older into this event.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Thankfully, Somerville allows free non-resident street parking on Sundays, and there's also a free lot at 15 Tyler St.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Feel free to e-mail Jason McCool at [email protected] with questions regarding the event or entire pindrop series! He also enjoys obscure cocktail recipes, should you happen to know any.
