Wednesday, August 31st: Outdoor Concert ft. Couch

There's nothing quite like live music. Join Arsenal Yards for an outdoor evening filled with live music from local band Couch. Whether you're an avid fan or looking for new artists to support, Couch's infectious rhythm and upbeat songs are a can't-miss!

About Couch: Equipped with catchy hooks and powerhouse vocals, Couch aims to reshape familiar pop tropes in fresh ways. The Boston-based septet infuses pop songs with funk, R&B, jazz, and rock influences. Their vibrant sound is further defined by the members’ personal training in jazz, a cappella, and musical theatre.

Until Spring 2021, Couch members were scattered across the country at various universities; they tackled the challenges of being a “long-distance” band, writing and even recording virtually for three years. Despite these challenges, they celebrated the release of their debut EP, “COUCH,” in February 2021. The band injected each track with their signature flavor: expressive horns, warm vocals, and bubbling synths—crafting an oasis of joy for musicians and non-musicians alike.
