Writers Reading, and Songwriters Singing. Join us in the newly renovated MCA Lobby for a holiday edition of Earfull!
October 26’s FearFULL got NorEaster'd. Boo! So we're redoing that show in a different season. Our holiday celebration, CHearFULL, features everything you love about Earfull—music, stories, food, drink, and your lovely hosts: Tim Huggins & Jen Trynin.
This event will take place in MCA's newly renovated lobby!
Since the early 2000’s, Boston musician and author Jen Trynin, and bookstore connoisseur Tim Huggins, have been hosting the Earfull Series, bringing together the worlds of writers and musicians. They prove that, given the right environment, Book People will love the experience of live music, and Rock People will realize how cool it is to hear great authors reading their work aloud.

Margaret Garrett & Friends
Margaret Garrett (Mr. Airplane Man) and Gregg Porter (The Concerns) play loose, droney musings in a subtle ethereal zone. Their sound can be described as taking a warm bubble bath of tremolo and reverb beneath the trees as the sun goes down. There may or may not be nymphs and fairies playing along as you sink into the textures of sound.
Martin, Morell, and Fredette
Martin, Morell and Fredette are a trio composed of Boston music veterans Eric Martin, Steve Morell and David Fredette. Their resumes include membership in The Neats, The Delfuegos, The Titanics, The Oysters, The Upper Crust and The Illyrians. MMF play a mixture of original and classic covers of Rock, Pop, Rhythm and Blues.
