In its role as a neighborhood bar & grille
and meeting place for multi-ethnic, multi-generation Central Square,
the Cantab Lounge provides stages for many kinds of music and the spoken word.

Tuesdays we have the best Bluegrass scene for miles around.

Wednesdays, there's Dr. Grant's R&B Jam Upstairs
and as always, a Poetry Slam downstairs in the Underground.

Thursdays the Chicken Slacks bring classic soul and funk to the Upstairs stage
and Downstairs: Mickey Bliss presents Club Bohemia

Fridays and Saturdays
Upstairs: Various awesome dance bands
Downstairs: Mickey Bliss presents Club Bohemia
