Moon Room invite us all to party in space with ‘Imaginary Friends’


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.

On St. Patrick’s Day around Boston, you pretty much have three options: Go see the Dropkick Murphys, go fight someone in Southie, or bounce town and hit up SXSW. Every now and again a fourth option pops up that pretends it’s not even St. Patty’s Day khed, and this year O’Brien’s in Allston holds down the green fort for a show that lands on March 17 on the calendar but Saturday night in our hearts.

Leading the charge on this bill are Moon Room, a new guitar-pop trio from Southeastern Massachusetts who create the type of breezy indie rock everyone loves on cool summer nights. Their atmospheric brand of layered lunar rock is increasingly evident on new cassette release Fairly Normal, recorded and produced by Ben Semeta (Black Beach, House of the Rising Fuzz comp), and shines through in grays and faded hues on “Imaginary Friends”, a shifty dream-pop number that suggests exciting things are ahead.

Watch the Andy Oteri-produced video for “Imaginary Friends” below, and start making those “Kiss Me I’m Fuzzed Out” pins before Moon Room’s show at the O, which also features Beeef, Footings, and The Water Cycle.
