Local Music

Week of August 16 - 23rd

This week on MCTV we visited a new local business, Buckingham Rabbits Vintage, to hear their story and see what their store has to offer. Store owner Alexandra McGuigan talks about the support she receives from the local art community, and the role they played in helping her get the doors open. The video is now available on montaguetv.org.

We were also on scene at the latest Great Falls Discovery Center Coffee House where Annie Patterson and Charlie King performed songs off their new CD ‘Step by Step’ as well as new original songs. It was both a fun and moving performance, see for yourself at montaguetv.org.

Montague Center was host to a music festival this past weekend, Barbes in the Woods. Barbes is a little bar in Brooklyn, over the past two decades it has incubated and produced some of New York’s most creative music projects. The tiny venue only seats 60 and hosts more than 700 performances a year. On Saturday 11 bands, headlined by Antibalas, arrived in picturesque Montague Center to perform their fun, high energy music. Keep an eye on montaguetv.org for the videos!

There’s still time to register for MCTV’s 120 Second Film Festival! This is a contest designed for people who don’t have a lot of experience with filmmaking but are interested in getting started. The videos can be simple, as simple as shooting them right from your phone! But if you still feel like you need help getting started, or get stuck along the way you can always stop in to our station at 34 Second Street in Turners Falls and we’d be happy to answer any of your questions. Something going on you think others would like to see? If you get in touch, we can show you how easy it is to use a camera and capture the moment. Contact us at (413) 863-9200, infomontaguetv@gmail.com, or stop by 34 Second Street between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. We'd love to work with you!
