About Fitchburg
map
Fitchburg Massachusetts is the second largest city in Worcester County but still manages to maintain its small town flavor. Fitchburg is noted for its hilly topography and its old mills along the Nashua River with its tightly knit neighborhoods that still retain their ethnic identity.

Located just 10 miles from New Hampshire and 50 miles from Boston, the city enjoys excellent access via highway or public transportation to all points.

The paper industry was dominated the history but that has given way to a healthier economic diversification that now includes tool and die makers - machine manufacturers – pharmaceuticals - plastic molders and textile producers.

Cultural assets include the Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg State College and the world famous annual Longsjo Classic Bicycle Race.

Berklee Summer in the City IAN

When IAN releases a new tape of their sad-girl anthems, there is a whole lot to be happy about. Thanks to the magic of BUFU Records, the bands quiet bedroom pop is taken out of the bedroom and moved into the garage. Equipped with a full band, the songs are filled out with fuzzier, grungier sound. By embracing a bit more noisiness, IAN creates determined energy, and the songs deliver the emotions behind them with confidence. Yet they are more than just garage-set rock, and the tracks use little tricks to give them unique, dreamy qualities. There are songs with erratic rhythms and jangly bridges. Some have whirly distortion and feedback. With deliberately struck chords, the melancholy mood is set even on the most upbeat tracks.

Berklee Summer in the City The Colonnade

The Colonnade is four relatively sad boys making jangly indie rock out of Boston since the summer of 2014. Infectious hooks and dreamy, sparkling guitars pulled from a Californian surf-rock sensibility collide with gritty, lo-fi garage rock of the city. The rebellious sounds of suburban melancholia give birth to songs fuelled by youthfulnavet, girls, New England nostalgia, and a penchant for adolescence. This is a curation of the band's experiences, and they hope you, too, can find meaning in this music.

Berklee Summer in the City Skinny Pigeons

Two birdbrained young rapscallions from across the United States congregate in Boston to form a fusion of noisy punk rock, gypsy jazz, and funk stylings that could only be summed up by one phrase: Skinny Pigeons. This power duo combines the eccentric and eclectic songwriting of traveller and guitarist Joey Luna (Boulder, Colorado) with bombastic, lightning-speed drum parts written by Jeff Crenshaw (Seattle, Washington). In 2012, the band incubated in the basement for several months before emerging from the eggshell with a wide assortment of songs and a hunger to spread their strain of avian flu far and wide. Since then, theyve been busy packing venues and basements, drawing attention with their infectious groove and relentless, crushing rhythm.
