Outpost 186

OUTPOST 186 is a new arts, media and performance space at 186 1/2 Hampshire St. in Inman Square, Cambridge, Mass. It offers an informal chamber music ambiance with surprisingly good room acoustics and a Yamaha Upright.

Over the years it has become the key Boston home for Free Jazz with performances by the heart and soul of the Boston Community from elder luminaries such as John Voigt and Laurence Cook to people in the thick of it such as Dave Bryant and Jim Hobbs to a whole cohort of people young and old from far and wide.

Bill Dixon, Bern Nix, Calvin Weston, Daniel Carter, Bill Elgart, Matthew Shipp and Darius Jones have all visited. And the regulars more than hold their own.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
