The Loft brings in a nice mix of national and international touring acts (guitarist Julian Lage was there in April) and local heavyweights such as Joshua White, David Borgo, and Peter Sprague. This place has a modern-nightclub feel with an elevated stage, great sound and lighting, and wine, beer, and food available from the Zanzibar Cafe. Down for the summer break, the series resumes in October.
All ages. Cover: events range from free to $35. Seats 180. $2 an hour at Gilman Parking Structure (free on weekends).
