This Is Who It Hurts-Part 2

The Loss of EMF – a rehearsal complex for artists and musicians

The loss of the EMF rehearsal complex on Brookline Street is to many, the last nail in the coffin of an autonomous arts community. Of course it is not completely dead, but it’s gasping for air, and for many, the hurt and the disappointment are extreme. This disenfranchised community feels abandoned by a city they love and at war with the “pillars of society” who preach “Refugees Welcome Here” but practice “only if you can afford it,” which you can’t.

The Loss of EMF – a rehearsal complex for artists and musicians

The resistance is not winning in Cambridge. Actually, it never really wins. Thinking back to the fight for Rent Control in the nineties and the Holmes building project in Central Square, it was definitely foolhardy to believe that the city, a rich landowner, or some philanthropic patron of the arts would save the EMF building in the name of art over money.

Sound Museum Rehearsal Complex

Thirty years ago, Des Desmond’s rock band, the Bentmen, needed a rehearsal space to practice their music. In entrepreneurial fashion, Desmond took out a small business loan, leased a building in the South End and built the first Sound Museum Rehearsal Complex, which, as a company is still operational today.

“Just a Kid from Cambridge”

When I saw my first one, I thought it was a sweatshirt that CRLS was handing out to the kids in one of its clubs. But then I started seeing more of them and not just on teenagers, but also on people of all ages. I am referring to the t-shirt/sweatshirt that proudly reads “Just a Kid from Cambridge.”

The Rebuilding of Wellington-Harrington

I made the mistake of googling my opening line “everything happens at once,” and became completely distracted with the physicists' theory that “The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening
