Netflix and Chill

A Dating Game Comedy Show: The fun, new, interactive dating game show live at The Rockwell. Instead of asking the contestants a bunch of dumb questions full of sexual innuendo, we have the contestants pair up for games and challenges to test their compatibility. The games are based around popular Netflix shows such as “Truth or Daredevil”, “Master of Nunchucks”, “House of Kardashians” or “Fuller Mouth”. Who knows what you’ll see. Netflix and lip syncing? Netflix and blind egg toss? Netflix and karaoke? And if we find a match, maybe it will lead to Netflix and Chill.

A dating game show where contestants play games and solve challenges to find out who is most compatible with stand-up comedy and surprise guests mixed in. Come see why people are calling this the most fun new show of the year.   More info and clips from past shows on facebook group.   Doors at 6:30pm, 18+

Roast Battle

What began at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles by co-creators Brian Moses and Rell Battle, has now expanded to comedy festivals and new venues around the country.
  It’s a no holds barred display of verbal violence. comedians go at each other one at a time, for three rounds with guest judges deciding on the victor. It’s been packing The Belly Room in LA on a weekly basis since 2013 and for the last few months at New York Comedy Club. After a successful debut in November at The Boston Comedy Festival and a jammed show in January, Roast Battle returns once again to Davis Square for a truly unique one-night-only spectacle.  Hosted by Matt Kona, Sounds by KeyJ McGee of The Van Burens, 21+, Doors open 30 minutes prior to showtime.


Shit-Faced Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet

A deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 70,000 eager theatre goers across the UK.   Shit-faced Shakespeare landed stateside in April of 2015 and continues to bring you the hilarity at The Rockwell with Romeo and Juliet.   With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same.  Weekends at The Rockwell, 21+ Admittance.  Running time 60 Minutes. Doors and lobby bar open 60 mintutes before listed show time.

HUSH: Silent Film – Live Music

HUSH and step back to a time before television, during the advent of the automobile, and before the urbanization of America.  Once home to 14 theaters, Somerville was the most densely populated city in the country, and going to the movies was a social experience where people came together to share news, gossip and be entertained.  A century later we celebrate the art of silent film with live music performed by Noxaphonic, curated by Erica Baptiste and presented by The Rockwell.
First Wednesday each month. Please visit our calendar for schedule and show specific details.

Smoke & Shadows

Beyond the bright marquees and dim speakeasy, there is a timeless place where bouncy vaudeville meets soulful sounds and fresh comedy meets the glint of rhinestones. Smoke and Shadows is the Rockwell’s monthly burlesque and variety show that defies decade and genre, each time offering a new mix of performers from near and far. Acts may span from carefree to poignant and from sexy to thought-provoking, but no matter the specifics, Smoke and Shadows will always guarantee a night of excellent entertainment.  Hosted and co-produced with Elsa Riot every First Monday of the month.  Doors 7:30pm, 8:00PM Show, 21+  $15 Advance (exclusive of service fee).  Please visit the calendar for monthly lineup.
