The Sonic Cube

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was renovated four years ago. I’ve visited a handful of times since then, each time peeking into the performance hall and thinking, “I need to see a concert here.”

So this was the year. My friend and I got tickets to see Will Dailey, a local singer-songwriter. Having never heard a note of his music, I was looking forward to seeing (and hearing) what he was about.

The performance hall is called a “sonic cube.” It’s square-shaped and very vertical.
















Seating was general admission, so I arrived early and nabbed front row seats. Will was accompanied by an accordionist/pianist, bassist, and drummer. We greatly enjoyed the music; a lot of it was mellow, but Will had some good riffs now and then. He wasn’t overly chatty, but when he did speak, he was charming and thoughtful.

He won over the crowd when he stated that he felt bad for the audience members in the top row, who were essentially looking down at the top of his head. So he laid down and performed a song. That couldn’t have been easy!










Delightful band, delightful performance space. I’m looking forward to returning some day.
