About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is located just northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. The easy access to Boston and Cambridge by public transportation and it's great parks and neighborhoods, makes Somerville a perfect choice to settle down and call home. Search local Somerville homes for sale and join the local community.

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals, college students and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles of residential homes and commercial properties.

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!

Chris Trapper - Two nights
CHRIS TRAPPER www.christrapper.com CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late90's alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). His solo career has put him in demand across the country and has had him sharing stages with Colin Hay (Men At Work), Martin Sexton and numerous other high profile performers.

Chris Barron (Spin Doctors) and James Maddock
Chris Barron www.thechrisbarron.com Chris Barron is best known as the lead singer of the band Spin Doctors. What you maybe didn't know is that long before he was that goofy guy in the hat on MTV, he was an even goofier kid with an acoustic guitar. Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to masterfully crafted songs that are poignant yet wistful and funny, all the while singing in a manner that's sweet and somewhat different from what you would expect if you only knew his hits, "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and "Two Princes". Live, his stage patter is as entertaining as his singing. A powerful story teller, at once hilarious and thought provoking, Chris sets up his songs with anecdotes from a life on the road, from opening for and encountering legends like the Rolling Stones to Polar expeditions. James Maddock www.jamesmaddock.net Beloved New York-based singer-songwriter James Maddock has confirmed the June 30 release of his new album The Green. Produced by Iestyn Polson (David Gray, Patti Smith, and David Bowie) The Green boasts a more lush production aesthetic and more ambitious arrangements than any previous Maddock record. The Green will be released via Julian Records and marks Maddock's first since 2013's acclaimed Another Life LP and co-writing three tracks for the latest album by The Waterboys. "This is my best album. It's an upbeat record with really strong songs and a lot of surprises," the British transplant reveals. "It all happened really naturally. I just listened to where the songs where going and allowed myself the time to give each one a proper sonic home." The album features rich gospel-tinged backups courtesy of Cindy Mizelle (Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Duran Duran), tasteful drum loops, elegant string arrangements courtesy of Alan Grubner, and drum contributions from Aaron Comess (The Spin Doctors), bass by Tony Shanahan (Beck, Patti Smith, Suzanne Vega), and accordion by Brian Mitchell (Bob Dylan, Al Green, B.B. King).The album was mixed by Bill Reynolds and Jason Kingsland (Band of Horses). The best singer-songwriters serve the song. The songwriter's songwriter, James Maddock, who has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way. But for his latest album, The Green, the songs guided him into recording the most eclectic, exhilaratingly soulful, and imaginatively produced album in his career. The album is bookended by "Once There Was A Boy Part 1" and "Once There Was A Boy Part 2." Version one has a gospel-folk gait recalling Van Morrison and the more pastoral moments of The Pogues, and version two is a fresh rendition with stately strings and dreamy vocals. The track "Speaking For The Man" recalls the silken soul of Jimmy Ruffin ("What Becomes of the Brokenhearted"). The title track finds James revisiting the political commentary songwriting style of his formative days. And the sleek and euphoric "Driving Around With the Win" and the simmering sensuality of "Let's Get Out Of Here" are revelations in James's catalog, showcasing the gorgeous patina of James's vocals within an ultra modern sophisticated pop context. This summer Maddock will be taking entries from The Green, as well as fan favorites, on the road. Live, Maddock imaginatively reinterprets his oeuvre to keep it fresh. "I love how songs reveal themselves differently in the live setting," James says. "I'm grateful I have such a large body of work and an audience to share a creative dialogue with. It's all a luxury and just a really beautiful thingI feel very lucky."

"...One of pop's finest singers, Jeffrey Gaines is the voice of a new generation." Rolling Stone Magazine "Gaines has earned endless cult and critical acclaim, and juice enough to be touring partners with such celebrated icons as Stevie Nicks and Sting ... his compositions should continue to add more laurels to his arsenal." The Village Voice "Gaines possesses a raspy, soulful voice and a knack for soul-searching, gut-check lyrics." Paste "Jeffrey Gaines applies a roughened, unconventional voice to sparkling pop... acoustic-guitar strums, sustained electric guitar chords, repeating arpeggios and slow-motion lead guitar into dizzying harmonies." Washington Post "Gaines' deceptively simple, disarmingly direct ruminations on life finds an audience of those desiring more from music than a fleeting flavor-of-the-month buzz. Gaines is extraordinary and timeless." Chicago Tribune

Quick'n'Dirty EL Wire Workshop: JULY

Description:

EL wire is short for electroluminescent wire - meaning a flexible, durable, waterproof string of light! It's a quick, cheap, and low-skill medium with a high visual impact.

In this workshop you'll gain the skills necessary to produce long-lasting, durable, eye-catching EL wire costume pieces or decorations, and you'll go home with a project that will wow your friends and family. Great for amping up costumes, party decorations, or getting creative about night-time lighting for cyclists.

Class Goals:

By the end of the workshop students will have produced at least one EL wire design to take home, as well as the skills and resources necessary to generate projects on their own: design, fabricate, and solder with el wire, and order components.

Prerequisites:

Knowing how to solder or sew is a great head start but not required! (Don't worry, it's not real sewing.) Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

The cost of the class includes a $20 materials fee to cover your driver, connector parts, solder, heatshrink, thread, wire, batteries, and fabric. All the tools required will be provided. El wire is not included in the class fee, and will be sold by the foot for $1.50 per foot. (Most designs average around 14 feet.)

Instructor Biography:

Shit-faced Shakespeare
Shit-faced Shakespeare is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 35,000 eager theatre goers across the UK.  Shit-faced Shakespeare has landed Stateside and will be bringing you the hilarity at Davis Square Theatre through the summer with A Midsummer Night's Dream. (Select Performances at OBERON in Harvard Square. For tickets to those performances click HERE) With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist - reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.    FAQs Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? This event is 21+ and only state-issued IDs will be accepted at the door (no school IDs).  What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Red Line to Davis Square and a hop, skip and a jump from there. Limited parking (especially on the weekends) so give yourself plenty of time.   Is my registration/ticket transferable? Sure.  Shoot us an email. Can I update my registration information? Yes, right through your Eventbrite account.  Do I have to bring my ticket to the event? YES! That is your way in. Either print the ticket or download the Eventbrite app.   What is the refund policy? There isn't one.   The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay? Totally fine.

Jewelry I: Intro to Metalsmithing SEPT/OCT
Description: Through this 6-week class you will be introduced to the arcane and secret techniques of making fine jewelry. No prior experience is required, and by the end you will come away with new skills and with several finished pieces to show off and be proud of. We will work primarily in sterling silver, brass, and copper. First we start with the basics. You will learn to use the jeweler’s most fundamental hand tools, such as a jeweler’s saw, files, stamps, and hammers. Once you learn techniques to create interesting textures and patterns on the surface of metal shapes, your first project will have you learning how to make a cold connections: joining pieces through riveting. With these new skills you will to make a key fob, pendant, tag, picture frame or decorative tile of your own design. The second half of the class focuses on learning to solder. Exercises in soldering lead into the design and fabrication of a piece of jewelry from sterling silver with a cabochon-set stone. Finishing techniques, like oxidizing and polishing, round out the class lessons. This class is excellent preparation for Jewelry II and for working independently in the Artisan Asylum’s studio space. The class will teach you how to safely turn on and off a gas tank. Hands-on work-time is balanced with lessons and as well as time to interact with other students. Class Goals: Students will come away with familiarity of basic jewelry making skills: Sawing, Filing, Soldering, Polishing, Riveting, Surface Embellishment, Rolling-Mill, Bezel Stone-setting, Gas Tank Operation. Project Goals: Students will complete samples, a riveting project and at least one sterling silver piece of jewelry with a bezel-set cabochon. Prerequisites: No experience required; students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: An additional materials fee of $35 covers the cost of silver, copper, brass and consumables such as saw blades, solder, etc., all of which will be provided, and helps purchase new tools for the studio. Payment should be delivered to the instructor on the first day of class by cash or check. What to Bring: You need not bring anything beyond the material fee, but a sketchbook for your ideas and notes is handy. If you bring scrap fabric with interesting textures we will use them in the first day of class!  Please wear close-toed shoes and use hair ties to secure long hair. An apron is great for keeping your clothes from destruction but is optional. Instructor Biography: Sage Kochavi has been making jewelry since the mid-90's and has taught metalsmithing in the Boston area for 10 years. She especially enjoys helping beginning jewelry students discover the pleasure of working with metal. After years working as a jeweler, selling her designs in shops across the country and in multiple other capacities in the field, she primarily makes interactive sculpture. She still thinks nothing compares to the satisfaction of a well-executed solder joint.

Intro to Woodworking: Build a Box JUNE/JULY

Description:

In this class you'll get familiar with typical woodworking tools and the basics of joinery and finishing techniques by building the foundational shape from which most furniture and structures are constructed - a box! We will be creating a small (roughly 3x6x9") box with lid.

While this is a hands-on class producing a final project that you can take home, there will also be theoretical lecture portions of the class. We will discuss different types of wood, what factors go into your choice of material, and what behaviors of the wood to keep in mind when choosing which tools to use on that wood. We will also discuss different types of joints, and both the structural and aesthetic reasons you may want to use one joint method over another. We will discuss joints that require jigs, however, we will NOT be practicing those joints (such as dovetails, finger joints, biscuits, and pocket screwing). We will also discuss the different finish options, including waxes, oils, stains, varnishes, and paint, and you will get instruction on how to apply a stain or oil finish to your final piece.

Class Goals:

Teach students how to safely use woodworking and assembly tools like table saws, sliding compound miter saws, circular saws, the jointer and planer, layout tools and more, leading to the completion of a wooden box.

Prerequisites:

No experience necessary; students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Wood will be provided; please bring $10 cash to the fist class to cover the cost of materials.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst, taught in the Student Union Craft Center for most of her time there, and took woodworking classes in the art department.

Carolyn has been observing and building in her Dad's workshop since before she can remember. She built her first toolbox as a wee lass with her Dad's help when she was probably 8 or 10. Her personal projects tend to range from jewlery stands to boxes to small furniture. She comes from a family of professional builders and remodelers, and has helped frame, drywall, trim, paint, etc. many a structure, including her parents' home improvement projects, the construction of an addition to a family summer cottage, volunteering on several Habitat for Humanity sites, and supervising and teaching 14-18 year olds in week-long trips rebuilding houses in the Gulf Coast for three summers post-Hurricane Katrina. Teaching a 15 year old girl to cut and hang crown molding and seeing her amazement and the homeowner's gratiture in her results has been one of her most rewarding teaching experiences.

This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill. Class Goals: Students will learn to: Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials Understand how to Calculate appropriate Speeds and Feeds for milling operations Securely fixture a small piece of aluminum stock in the vise Identify a variety of end mills and their uses. "Face", or cut a side of, a piece of aluminum stock to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish. Find the edge of a piece of stock, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge. “Zero” the X, Y, and Z axis as they relate to fixtured stock Understand the concept of Backlash and how it relates to using the Bridgeport Mills Know the difference between Climb Milling and Conventional milling Clean and maintain the mill. Prerequisites: No previous experience required, but Hands-On Metalworking Tools training recommended (see upcoming available dates listed at http://artisansasylum.com/current-classes/#sectionmetalworking). Students must be at least 18 years old. What to Bring: Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, short-sleeve shirt. All other materials needed for class will be provided. Instructor:  Damian Ward began working with metal when he brought home an oxy-acetylene rig in 2009 and began welding. Arc welding followed soon after, along with melting and casting aluminum. Since joining the Artisan's Asylum, Damian has spent almost all of his free time in the machine shop and has lost track of how many hours he has spent in front of the mill.  In addition to his metalworking, Damian has worked on a dairy farm, pulled network cable, worked for Lockheed Martin, and practiced criminal law. Damian's favorite Doctor Who companion is Wilfred Mott. Event Time: Session 1: Tuesday, August 4, 7:15pm to 9:15pm. Session 2: Tuesday, August 11, 7:15pm to 9:15pm. REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.  CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

Build Your Own Bicycle Frame: SUMMER 2015

Description:

Ever frustrated by riding a bike just not shaped well for you? Ever tempted to try and build your own frame, but not sure where to start? This is the class for you!

In this class, students will learn how to build their own bicycle frame from steel tubes, using lugged construction. You will learn about bicycle geometry and handling, what configurations are typically applied to what kind of riding applications, the basics of fitting a bicycle frame to a rider, and how to set up a bicycle frame jig.

Three optional unsupervised worknights are included in the three-month-long schedule to make sure students without Artisan's Asylum memberships have time to finish their frame by the end of the course. 

You will come out of the class with an unpainted steel roadbike frame set up for fast city riding, commuting, or touring. It will accept caliper brakes and a 25.4mm threadless headset. Extras (handlebars, seat, peddles, and wheels) are totally up to you!

Class Goals:

Students will leave the class having built their own bicycle frame, fitted specifically for them (or for the person of their choice) from steel tubing. Students will learn about fabricating structures made of thin wall tubing, and about brazing techniques.

(Outside the scope of this class, but highly recommended:  Build up your bike. Paint your name on the side. Ride it around. Impress your friends.)

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required. Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Materials are provided, covered by a materials fee of $225 included in your registration price. Students may customize their build with a selection of dropouts and braze-ons.

Introduction to TIG Welding: AUGUST

Description:

This class is designed to introduce students to the process of TIG welding, a precise type of welding most often used in the manufacture of spaceframe structures like bike frames and roll cages. Students will learn how to weld primarily 4130 chromoly steel tubing, as well as different types of materials, shapes, and joints, and will learn how to use a range of supporting equipment (drill press, hole saws, grinders, etc.) and processes that come with welding.

Class Goals:

The goal of this class will be to train a student to the point where they can weld on Artisan's Asylum equipment safely and independently.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

Weld helmets, gloves, tungsten electrodes are provided. Students should wear boots or closed-toed shoes as well as a heavy-duty long sleeved shirt, such as flannel or a heavy work shirt. Information for students interested acquiring any equipment of your own will be covered in class. All students are expected to pay an additional $20 to cover materials. If you wear glasses, bring the ones you use for computing or reading, as close-up vision is important.

Instructor Biography:

In 1993 Skunk picked up a TIG torch, struck an arc, and produced his first weld puddle (oddly enough, it was in titanium). Ever since, he has been on a relentless mission to transmogrify and personify spark plugs, circuit breaker boxes, reamer blades, typewriters, and the like, helping the little creatures he inherently sees in objects transcend their original purpose. Saw blades are reinvented into angelic wings, tin cans devolve into rose pedals, and a broken clarinet gets a second life as a pirate blunderbuss. No outdated or discarded mechanical devices are safe from joining the parade of fantastic creatures, mighty rayguns, and emotional robots, some of which tip the scales at over 300 pounds.

Skunk is also the Fleet Admirl and founder of a bicycle chopper gang known as SCUL, and works as a professional custom bike builder for Seven Cycles.
