A sampling of our recent work...
Local Calling, Presented by Boston Calling and Cornerscape
A few nights ahead of 2018's Boston Calling Music Festival, Boston Calling and Cornerscape co-presented a night of Boston-bred music at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge. A sold-out night of music for and by the community raised money for local music nonprofit The Record Company, and was highlighted by performances by Oompa, Dietrich Strause and the Blue Ribbons, and Honeysuckle.
Music on the Menu
Music on the Menu is a new event series that connects some of the Boston area's most innovative chefs with locally-based musicians for evenings of dinner, music, and collaboration. Our first Music on the Menu event was held at Juliet in Union Square, Somerville, on May 20, 2018 and featured a performance by Aurora Birch.
Allston-Brighton Winter Market 2017
Cornerscape produced the inaugural Allston-Brighton Winter Market in December 2017, which brought 4,000 visitors to the Harvard Ed Portal over four days. Featuring local artisan vendors, a beer garden by Lord Hobo, two days of live music booked by Cornerscape and Allston Pudding, Bon Me food truck, and interactive programming, the Allston-Brighton Winter Market has become an essential new part of the creative economy landscape of Allston-Brighton.
A Celebration of Leonard Cohen in Music, Dance, and Poetry
Cornerscape produced a celebration of Leonard Cohen's work, performed on September 24, 2017 to a sold-out crowd of 300 at the Somerville Armory. We oversaw: event design, production, marketing, permitting, and all logistics.

Two Roads Agency's NanoFests
Cornerscape has produced three NanoFests for Two Roads Agency since 2016. "What is a NanoFest?", one may ask. Part pop-up concert, part pub crawl, and part fundraiser, a NanoFest takes attendees on a musical scavenger hunt through several locations in one evening, treating them to intimate performances and surprises through it all.
