Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.
It was around this time last year that we were treated to The Rare Occasions’ new EP Futureproof, a four-track ode to the whirlwind of change that quickens as we fall further into the 21st century. And while there’s no releases from the Boston/Providence indie-garage outfit on the schedule for this summer (unless we get a lovely surprise), the band just announced a slew of early August tour dates that follow up their gig with Alvarez Kings in Anaheim.
To find out the locales of the Boston and Providence gigs, you’ll have to apply for the address via Sofar Sounds, but in case you don’t get the coveted invite, the dudes also hit up Pawtucket and Leominster on August 4 and 5, respectively.
Peep the tour dates below, hit rewind, and relearn what it means to be “futureproof” below.
