Update from ONCE

ONCE Somerville will be closed in August to re-group, assess our most pressing needs, and make a plan to address them. We’ve got a solid team in place, including professionals from the community who are volunteering their time and expertise. We’ll re-open in mid-September with some incredible shows and events that will kick off a fantastic fall season in style. Stay tuned for details!

We owe huge thanks to Anngelle Wood (WZLX, Rock and Roll Rumble) and to every single person who contributed to the GoFundMe campaign she organized independently to help us recover from the robbery and vandalization of our property in May 2018. We still haven’t touched the money raised, but we’ll be making announcements soon about exactly how we plan to use it.

The outpouring of support and well wishes we’ve received from countless friends of ONCE means the world to us. It continues to sustain and inspire us.

Our plan is to come back with a vengeance – that includes progressively making operational changes and other improvements to remedy past shortcomings. We know we’re not perfect and we’re not where we want to be, but we’re committed to doing better for the city of Somerville and for the Greater Boston music and arts community.
