Open Call for LA Live:

A live variety show is coming to Lower Allston!

This summer, AERONAUT Allston and PRX Podcast Garage are joining forces to bring you a new live performance series that is part variety show, part old-timey radio show, and rooted in the neighborhood of Lower Allston: LA LIVE!

Lower Allston - or LA as locals sometimes call it - is a neighborhood with a long history of artists, rebels, rockers, and new and old Bostonians living side-by-side. Each show will take place during AERONAUT Allston, a free summertime musical beer garden on Western Ave. with hundreds of attendees. We will also record and release these shows as a podcast so you can tune in anytime and anywhere!

We’re looking for comedians, voice actors, performers, poets, sketch acts, and storytellers to submit their ideas for these live performances. We’ll select a couple of acts for each show and provide compensation to each performer. The final show will integrate music and selected performers in an irreverent, inspiring atmosphere.

The four performances are taking place on:

  • Thursday, June 13, 7-8 p.m.

  • Thursday, July 11, 7-8 p.m.

  • Thursday, August 8, 7-8 p.m.

  • Thursday, September 12, 7-8 p.m.

Here are the guidelines for your submission:

  • You must be able to perform it live before an audience in Allston this summer in 5 to 10 minutes

  • The performance must be sound or voice-based - we love visual artists but the goal is to turn it all into a podcast!

  • We’re delighted if you have a connection to the Allston neighborhood, but it’s not required
