Mel Fine's Rainbow Room is an in-the-round style queer songwriters' showcase. The show takes place on the 4th Sunday of the month at 7:30pm at the Burren Backroom in Somerville, MA.
Rainbow Room came to life out of a desire to provide a platform for underrepresented voices to be heard and appreciated in the Boston music scene. As a non-binary artist, Mel has definitely had moments where they felt scared to play my original music that explores queerness, and wished they had a safe space to share these stories. They now realize—it’s up to them to make that space.
After spending the summer interning in Nashville, Mel fell in love with the intimacy and energy of the in-the-round style show, and thought it would be the perfect format to highlight the stories each performer has to tell.
Everyone should be able to enjoy live music, and Mel Fine’s Rainbow Room is a warm, accepting environment to discover Boston’s up and coming gems.
