Middle East Downstairs Sign

So you’re a DJ just starting your career in the Cambridge/Boston area. It can be hard to get gigs in the local clubs because there are so many other talented performers around here.

So maybe your first few gigs are at your parents’ party or a friend’s house.

I sat down on Sunday, May 17 backstage at Downstairs at the Middle East with week two local DJs, GalaxZ (9) and Rubix (11), to ask them how they felt about having their first professional DJ gig at this fabled venue.

The Central Square #STEAM Family Disco event was part of Together 2015, the Boston area's only week-long festival of all things music, art and technology. Co-sponsored by the Central Square Business Association, Together and The Middle East, As part of the Cambridge educational initiative, there were STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) activities in addition to dancing, offering a unique experience for families to dance their hearts out to local DJ's playing family friendly mixes -- in a space with a "STEAM Disco" theme.
