Boston Hassle is a blog and events guide on a never ending quest for underground music, art and film.
Boston/New England happenings, suggestions, and ideas we will spurt. We’re also big proponents of all ages music and art events. High and low brow smashed to pieces and forever mixed together.
Boston Hassle is written by many great musicians, artists, writers, and enthusiasts from the Boston area and well beyond.
We harbor a BURNING DESIRE to expand the scope of what this Boston Hassle site can be (beyond only serving as a safe haven for weird & alive Art, Film, & Music)
If you’re interested in submitting or curating content for Boston Hassle or Boston Compass newspaper please GET IN TOUCH.
Please keep in mind that while we absolutely want to and aim to shine a bright light upon Boston & New England artists, we also desire to serve as a platform for emerging & boundary pushing artists of all kinds and from anywhere, commingling such wonderful artists with the wonderful artists operating in our New England territory.

Brain Arts Organization
Foster an innovative, compelling, and interconnected music, art, and film community in the greater Boston area through grassroots and inclusive participatory culture.
The non-profit, completely volunteer run BRAIN Arts Organization is made up of three main components:
- the Boston Hassle website
- the Boston Compass newspaper,
- and Boston Hassle Shows which organizes and programs live music events and festivals, and actively tries to find new spaces for hosting engaging all ages music and art performances.
BRAIN’s initial goal is to open an all ages, all inclusive music & art performance space to serve as a haven for the exciting and weirdly entertaining, the thought provoking, and the forward thinking musicians and artists of the Boston area, New England region, and their touring brethren. We envision a volunteer run, multi-functional space constantly filled with music and art, and offering workshops to volunteers and community members.
We seek partnership with individuals or groups interested in opening an eatery or retail space. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping us with our plan, or interested in partnering with us, please get in touch so that we may share information with you.
THE BOSTON HASSLE website could not, and would not BE without the massive efforts of many individuals. A million thanks to all who have given their time over the years. You’ll always be our favorite. Below is the current Hassle site fam. Buy them a beer, or some candy if you see any of them!!
