Fire twirler in Somerville's Union Square

Greg Cook took in the Ignite festival in Union Square last night.

Greg Cook, who in year's past has organized the Saddest Parade on Earth, is working with the Somerville Arts Council on a pity party in Union Square next month:

We’re looking for bands to play 20 minutes sets of sad songs (classic covers as well as depressing originals). We’ll provide a “back line” (amps, mics, etc.), but musicians have to bring their own drums and other instruments. We’re seeking facepainters to paint tears and other sad stuff on visitors’ faces. We’re seeking artists, writers and performers to offer sad visuals, readings and so on. We’re looking more for funny sad than sad sad, but surprise us with your best melancholia.

Newscast: Somerville Neighborhood News #36 - Mar. 24, 2015

Somerville, MA, Mar. 25, 2015 – A number of community groups, non-profits, business owners and residents are not happy with the ongoing planning process for the redevelopment of Union Square.

About 12 acres, located on seven blocks of real estate, are slated to be redeveloped by a master developer, chosen by the City last year. Union Square Station Associates, or US2, is a consortium of firms – led by Chicago’s Magellan Development Group LLC and Boston’s Mesirow Financial Holdings Inc. – that formed specifically to undertake the billion-dollar development.
