COOL EVENT ALERT! The sleepy little village of Devens, Massachusetts is going to be the home of a dazzling cornucopia of musicians, multimedia artists and comedians on Saturday, August 10th. Because that’s the day that The NINES Music + Art + Discovery Festival rolls into town. In all the flurry of concerts and bigger-name summer festivals, one might inadvertently skip over this brand new music and arts gathering, but that would be a mistake, as it features an impressive line-up of both internationally-known and up-and-coming artists.

Presented by 3Rivers Arts and Great Northeast Productions, Inc., the festival features two stages with smartly-staggered sets so you don’t miss any of the action. There will also be a comedy tent featuring emerging and established local comedians, and a dazzling array of art installations, exhibits and interactive art. Their stated mission is “to bring attention to the breadth of artistic talent in our region, bring top-tier bands to our area and build on this year after year.” As we’re all about the music here, I’ll focus on that in two parts. Head over to their official site for lots more information.
