Zumix in East Boston

The Vortex Series for New and Improvised Music

Friday, February 25th, 8:00 PM

Zumix Center
260 Sumner Street
East Boston, MA


This will be the Vortex Series’ first event held at Zumix. Zumix is a gorgeous spot in a converted firehouse in East Boston. They are focused on music education and community outreach, and hold concerts as well. It might appear that Zumix is buried in an obscure location in East Boston. Do not despair! The location is just a few minutes walk from the Maverick T Station, and a few minutes drive from the Mass Pike. We have a wonderful lineup which will consist of several contemporary music artists in the Boston area. Info below.
