Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

This June, a road trip to Western Mass is in order.

Wilco have announced the lineup for their 2017 Solid Sound Festival, going down June 23 to 25 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, and it’s pretty wild.

In addition to two headlining performances by Wilco, the fifth installment of Solid Sound includes appearances by Television, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Robert Glasper Experiment, Dawn of Midi, Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones, Kevin Morby, Joan Shelley, Big Thief, Peter Wolf & the Midnight Travelers, Deep Sea Diver, Andy Shauf, Alloy Orchestra, Idris Ackamoor and the Pyramids, Kacy & Clayton, Daniel Bachman, Jeff Parker Trio, The Shaggs, and Max Hatt/Edda Glass.

Wilco side projects Tweedy, The Autumn Defense, On Fillmore, The Nels Cline Four, and Quindar will also perform.

There will be a comedy stage at MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center hosted by John Hodgman, and the Bread and Puppet Theater returns to Solid Sound for the first time in seven years. There’s also a food component, kid-friendly events, and gallery exhibits. More announcements are expected in the coming weeks; in the meantime, the flyer below breaks it all down.

Three-day passes for Solid Sound are $159. Get more info here.
