Club Bohemia in Cambridge's Central Square Has Returned

by Marc Hurwitz

An iconic music club in Cambridge that shut down a few months ago is back in business.

According to musician and radio host/consultant Michael Scott Stewart, Club Bohemia has returned to its space in the basement of The Cantab Lounge in Central Square, with Cambridge Day confirming this (via a press release on Facebook), saying that the computer DJ format that The Cantab had replaced it with was not doing well, according to club manager Mickey Bliss. As of now, Club Bohemia is slated to have shows Thursday through Saturday and is currently looking to fill open dates.

Club Bohemia, which shut down in early September, has featured many local and regional acts over the years, while the Cantab itself was once known for being home to legendary R&B group Little Joe & The Thrillers.

The address for Club Bohemia (and The Cantab Lounge) is 738 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139.

Club Bohemia in Cambridge's Central Square to Close

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like another iconic music club is shutting down.

Vanyaland is reporting that Club Bohemia, which is located in the basement of The Cantab Lounge in Cambridge's Central Square, is closing on September 2, with the website for the place statingthat its final show is September 1--and also mentioning that The Cantab will remain in operation. No reason has been given for the closure of the club at this point in time, and a post on its Facebook page discusses starting an online petition to save the place, so stay tuned for any updates as they come in.

Club Bohemia has featured many local and regional acts over the years, while the Cantab itself was once known for being home to Little Joe & The Thrillers, an R&B group that played there countless times (Cook passed away in 2014).

The address for Club Bohemia (and The Cantab Lounge) is 738 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139.

[August 30 update: Based on a blog post, it looks like the last night at Club Bohemia will be Saturday, September 1.]

ROCKKIT

https://www.ebay.com/itm/382635016070


The classic 45 RPM is ultra rare. Produced by Joe Viglione the song "Never Say Never" was a local Boston area classic resulting in the band opening for Sammy Hagar at the Worcester Centrum and breaking up the day after! 

See the letter from WAAF's Russ Mottla:  "Dear Joe, Just an update on your band ROCKKIT  As if FOURTEEN weeks of air-play on Bay State Rock hasn't said enough!   The song "Never Say Never" is as powerful and well produced as anything I've heard. A real masterpiece.  The requests have not stopped for this song so airplay, of course, will also continue for a few more weeks.   I believe in Rockkit and wish you and the band much success.

All proceeds go to enormous fees I am paying for my six cats.  Thanks for your consideration.

From producer Joe Viglione's personal Varulven Records collection.

Richard Nolan first issued a 45 rpm in the early 1960s.  Then came his iconic Boston area band, Third Rail, which appeared on Live at the Rat, the double album documenting music from the Rathskellar nightclub.
In the 1980s Richard decided to do something different and asked Varulven Records (the Pop Explosion label) to distribute. He issued a cassette live album by the Naked Cage House Band, and then this terrific 45 RPM.
These are mint copies and they are becoming rare. Direct from the box, handed to me by the late Richard Nolan thirty years ago.   It's a great slice of Boston Rock and Roll by an historic figure from our "new wave" scene.  Side note: last September/October original members of Third Rail backed up the Varulven president (that would be me) for our Lou Reed tribute band.   As Third Rail would often perform with our group, it was a delight, and will be again, as old friends get together performing the music of both Reed and Richard Nolan.
The Naked Cage House Band 45rpm picture sleeve single.  Contains two tunes:

  • Track Dog
  • Rolling In Clover
Released in 1988 by Shoestring Records, label # SR247 distributed by Varulven Records.
