Beacon Boogie and Block Party coming June 9-10

Mark your calendar for a weekend of music and food on June 9 and 10, when the 2012 Beacon Boogie and Block Party comes to North Beacon Hill.

On Saturday, June 9, there will be a series of performances, all within a half-block of Beacon and Hanford: from 5-8 p.m., The Hugh Sutton Trio will be at Bar del Corso, and Dina Blade at Kusina Filipina. From 6-9 p.m., Audio Couture will perform at Victrola Coffee, and Supersones at El Quetzal.

On Sunday, the action moves north, closer to the junction of Beacon and 15th, with a hip hop extravaganza presented outside The Station coffee shop from 4-9 p.m. (Stay tuned for the lineup as it is finalized.) From 6-9 p.m., the Greg Ruby Trio will play at Travelers Thali House, and from 7-9, Atasha Manila will be at Inay’s.

There will be other activities as well. Watch this space for more details.

Admission will be a donation of $5, with no charge for kids 12 and under. The event is sponsored by the Beacon Hill Merchants Association in collaboration with Luis Rodriguez at The Station and other participating merchants.
