Music to our ears...

MARLBOROUGH

The empty firehouse in downtown Marlborough is featuring weekend concerts. So far, the shows have been drawing 150 or more people downtown on Friday and Saturday nights. This Friday, the Workingman's Blues Band will perform from 7-10 p.m.

Seating is first-come, first-served, and audience members are encouraged to bring dessert or order in a pizza.

The concert series is sponsored by Marlborough 2010, a new redevelopment campaign in the city, the Marlborough Visitor's Bureau and the city's Community Development Authority at a cost of $22,000. Performances will continue through Oct. 1.

This could be your first and last summer to catch a firehouse concert. The building has been under renovation by students at Assabet Valley Regional Technical School and the city has already announced its plans to put the property up for sale.
