Boston still has a few people bonkers enough to book shows floating around the venues, galleries, basements, and assorted “under the rock” alleyways where it’s still possible to find good, honest, awe-inspiring music these days. But one has stood out in recent times. His name is Jason Trefts, but more people know him as the man behind Illegally Blind; who for the last several years has consistently raised the bar when it comes to STACKED gigs. From the Lilypad in Cambridge, to ONCE in Somerville, to the basement of Deep Thoughts in JP, Illegally Blind has been the puppet master pulling strings and enticing our ears with eclectic, eyebrow raising, engaging episodes of musical mayhem. It all culminates in IB’s annual Fuzzstival – a 3 day menagerie of multifaceted talent from all ends of the indie underground. This year’s tinnitus inducing test of wills takes place at Cambridge Elks (Night 1), the aforementioned ONCE (Night 2) and finally Somerville ARTfarm (Day 3) to squeeze out the last couple drops of summer this city has left. ALSO – I wanna give a s/o to all the amazing bands, artists, comedians, performers, and more taking part in Waking Windows Portland! If you’re not going to be at Fuzzstival, take a trip to the Maine coast on the 29th and 30th to absorb all the anomalous amalgamations.
