Fun fact, this was my first legit non-classical concert ever. And the Red Room was a great gateway to the dive bars in my future. The Red Room @ Cafe 939 is Berklee's student-run music venue. Showcasing anyone from one of Berklee's rising musicians to youtube favorite Pomplamoose (whose sold out concert on June 21 was my first and definitely not my last Red Room experience.) Red Room's concerts provide entertainment to more than the 21+ crowd. Literally a red room, the venue has a completely chill vibe. Small with couches lining two of the walls, the room says, "Come and enjoy" to all. At Pomplamoose, there were "tie-dyed hippies, classy parents, and little kids," explained one Berklee student. Michele Lapegna, a woman who came all the way from Central Maine to hear Pomplamoose described the audience as "artistically minded, outside the box thinkers, progressive and liberal...None of us are Republicans," she joked about her group. While this transition to ticket prices is awkward, The Red Room is run smoothly. And decently priced, the concerts generally run from Free to around $15. Take advantage of this place. You don't know when that next student gig will be performing for a packed house at the Garden.
