history time! new article about a strange, beautiful, secret underground theater in downtown boston. if you know boston, you’ll be delighted…it’s right next to boston common beneath the steinert/steinway building (next to emerson college and the theater district).

if you’ve never seen it, it’s one of my lesser-known videos, but i love it.
another factoid: the piano that i’m playing is the old creaky steinway i grew up on, still in my parent’s living room in lexington, MA. it’s one of the two videos i’ve filmed in/at my folks house (the other one was…well, maybe i’ll post it tomorrow, since i’m feeling nostalgia-y).
