If they are still up in the air, here's a suggestion that promises a lot for the ticket price: Gilt City's Better than Backstage party, which kicks off this weekend's second Boston Calling festival, includes a live DJ, Italian grub (from Salvatore's), a $20-Uber transportation credit, swag bags, and a live performance from festival act Okkervil River. The whole package costs $30, and you have until Friday at around 10 a.m. to buy. The party happens from 7:30-10:30 p.m. at Royale Boston, 279 Tremont Street. Party and festival packages are also available; find more details here.
