About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

Hey! I'm heading east this November to play in living rooms all over the east coast. I've been playing a lot of house shows this year, and I really can't wait to share this with you guys. The concept is very simple. All you have to do is grab a "pay-what-you-want" style ticket on this website, grab some of your buds, grab some brews (or your beverage of choice), and come hang out. I'll be playing totally unplugged and acoustic. No setlist. I just play what you want to hear, and maybe throw in some news songs and covers. We can talk. We can do some Q&A. We can just hang out and have a good time. Sound good? Good! See you soon. BYOB General Awesomeness - $10.00
