Boston Police Acting As Punks To Disband Shows

by Zack Zarrillo - Apr 3, 2013

Members of the Boston police force are posing as “punks” online to disband house shows before they even start. Check out details below by clicking “Read More.”

Almost everyone in the DIY scene has had an experience with phony police emails, direct messages on Twitter, and interactions on social media. For some it’s become just another part of the promotion business—a game of spot-the-narc in which the loser gets his show shut down. According to one local musician who asked not to be named, the day before a show this past weekend, police showed up at a house in the Allston neighborhood, home of many of these house shows, claiming that they already knew the bands scheduled to play. The cops told the residents of the house that they found out about the show through email, and they bragged about their phony Facebook accounts.
