Local band Hot Molasses is making waves in Boston with their music and politics.
Named after an environmental disaster that killed 21 people in Boston's North End, the Molasses Flood of 1919, Hot Molasses does more than empty sloganeering. This band puts its money where its mouth is.
Hot Molasses is partnering with ACE for a benefit show! They'll be joined by local artists The Moving Co. and Floxy Blu.
ACE Benefit Show
Thursday February 21, 9 p.m.
at PA's Lounge

An "indie-folk-punk" tour-de-force, Hot Molasses is known for driving, intricate melodies layered with mandolin and banjo. "Despite the seriousness of the good cause, we're really all about fun and dancing," remarks band member Adam Cohen.
"Almost 90 years after the North End molasses flood, Boston is still dealing with environmental injustice," says Khalida Smalls, ACE Member Organizing Director. "We're glad to be partnering with Hot Molasses and other local bands to continue the fight for our communities."
Admittance will be $7 for 21+, $10 for 18-21.
