Heading to Boston in a fortnight for a few days, before heading elsewhere in Massachusetts to meet up with mates.

Any metal/punk recommendations, record shops etc. worth checking out? Any recommendations in general for the city, would be sound too, though I've most of my time accounted for.

Zombie thread resurrection...

Same request as Squigz above - any decent metal/punk/dive bars or record shops?

Bukowski's seems to be the best spot for beer and a relaxed vibe.

Sound.

We were only there for a day and a bit at the end of two weeks traveling around New England, however...

You should try to get to the Gourmet Dumpling House for dinner some night. You can’t book, it’s complete chaos, but man it’s worth it.

Don’t take the hop on hop off bus tour like we did since we were only there for a short time. Complete rip off.

Didn’t manage to find much in the way of record stores. I’m sure there’s plenty though, it’s a massive city.

You’re in New England, so you can get excellent beer everywhere.

Enjoy!

Paul.
