So you think the Schooner Fest starts tomorrow? Think again. You’ve gotta consider a free concert at Harbor Loop right in the heart of Gloucester’s waterfront, as the beginning of Schooner Fest. (Complete Schooner Fest Schedule here. Henri Smith Tickets here)
Last year I saw crew coming off visiting schooners who were charmed by the Harbor Loop concert and astounded when I told them we have these every week. Thank you Bradley Royds!
So come on down to Harbor Loop tonight and party with one of the most creative local bands, What Time Is It Mr. Fox?
Music begins at 6:30pm with Piano Forte opening. Just in case you’ve never seen Mr. Fox, read this:
“Time has come for Mr. Fox”
- Barry Thompson, Boston Herald
“Catch him as his star rises”
- Adam Feldman, Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick)
“a triumph of mood and style, an unforgettable musical, theatrical and emotional experience.”
“can simmer in blues, tremble with high drama, and faint into a yawning croon”
- Michael Brodeur, Boston Phoenix
There’s just too much going on this week to fit into one post a day, so today we’re just going to step back, catch our breath and review what’s coming up.

Let’s start with music. We’ve been adding new shows almost every day this week as we find out about them. Remember, there’s even music at the Farmers Market.
Check the live music lineup to see the latest. Check it again tomorrow; it’s likely to list more shows.
If you were paying attention, you’ve already saved the date for the Harbor Walk Ribbon Cutting. Today’s excellent article in the Times gives you a first glimpse at what you can expect.
Later today, we’ll post a full schedule of Harbor Walk events that start Thursday, connect with the Harbor Loop Concerts and continue all weekend long.
Now, you DID take my advice yesterday and get your ticket to the Blues Festival, right? Good, because we (including the Zip Line Kid) will be live blogging from the festival all day long — with a special focus on those of you who are like us and decide what to do at the last minute.
more to come later …
