After experiencing the best that Arlington has to offer at Town Day, head over to GARAGE BAND, an After-Party organized by Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture (ArtsArlington.org) and hosted by Arlington Service Station. Bring your dancing shoes to fully enjoy a diverse program of swing, Latin, and Japanese musical traditions performed by master musicians in the town’s hippest new open-air venue for the arts – an old-time neighborhood garage covered with polka dots! With:

* ODAIKO NEW ENGLAND – Dynamic ensemble performing and preserving a traditional Japanese form of drumming

* DAN FOX FOXTET – Arlington band leader, educator and captain of the Morningside Music School brings a swing band dedicated to getting folks on the dance floor!

* GRUPO FANTASIA – This panoply of Latin/Caribbean styles is the brainchild of Dominican multi-instrumentalist Angel Wagner, blending styles including merengue, salsa, Latin jazz, cumbia, bachata and vallenato


Sept. 15, 3-6 PM, ACAC continues the party with PATHWAYS CELEBRATION in the Arlington Center Cultural District. Enjoy a walking tour with 4 Bike Path public art creators, meeting townwide Transformer Box painters, and live New Orleans-style music in Spy Pond Park by The Revolutionary Snake Ensemble.


These celebrations are arranged by the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture (ArtsArlington.org), an umbrella organization for town-related arts and culture activities in Arlington, MA. Live Arts Arlington organizes “pop up” performances in a variety of expressive forms – from music and puppetry to dance and literary readings – in public spaces throughout the town. PATHWAYS is an innovative public art initiative that explores issues that matter to Arlington and enhance the Town’s community connections. ACAC publishes a free comprehensive online cultural calendar, map, and artist support resource at ArtsArlington.org.
