Boston Venue Guide: Brighton Music Hall

Brighton Music Hall was formerly the famed local music venue Harper’s Ferry. It has since been renovated and reinvented as the venue it is now today. You can go to this place to catch great up-and-coming artists, possibly discover new ones, and also see some local bands if the show includes it.

The venue is located at 158 Brighton Ave. in the busy center of Allston, where there are plenty of other places to frequent in the area like restaurants and bars. It is set right near the intersection of Brighton Ave. and Harvard Ave., for those within walking distance. You can call the venue directly at 617-779-0140.
