boston.com Arts and Entertainment your connection to The Boston Globe

From inside the belly of Boston's music scene comes a new feature highlighting local acts making some noise on and off the stage. Along the banks of the Merrimack River just north of the city, a five-man band by the name of Averi jams in some homegrown space. Here is their story.
