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.

Mondays Geoff Bartley hosts a Singer-Songwriter Open Mic  Upstairs

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
(Check http://clubbohemianews.blogspot.com for the most up-to-date band details.)

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

Sundays it's a Blues Jam hosted by Hot Sauce.
