What are you doing this weekend? Perhaps you’re cooking up some burgers and veggie dogs on the grill, rewarding yourself for all your hard work with a little getaway, or maybe you don’t have any weekend plans yet. Well, if you’re local to Boston and fall into that latter category, then we have the place for you to go this Saturday.

The 7th annual Starlab Music & Arts Festival will take place in Somerville on Saturday, September 3rd and you don’t want to miss out on this punk rock end of summer event. Along with performers like Screaming Females, The So So Glos, Animal Flag, Ascend/Descend, and Save Ends, you can catch comedy sets from Emily Rukowski and Nick Chambers. Bit Bar Salem will bring pop-up video arcades for you to play, free of charge, while you snack on complimentary BBQ (with veggie options) from Scott Brothers. Meanwhile, Boston League of Women Wrestlers AKA BLOWW, will set up a kicking booth where they will be teaching attendees how to wrestle!
