    If you're willing to play for donations in the street, I'd recommend going in the subway system (the T). Lots of people travel through Downtown Crossing stop, Park Street, and Harvard Square and wait for trains so those are good places to camp out by. Plus, it's warm in the tunnels

    Hey! I think I can help you out...

    Brendan, not to burst your bubble, but I would definitely not busk in the T as you need a permit and they always (at least 90% of the time) will check.

    Good (and free) busking spots include Davis Square on the redline, and basically anywhere in Boston that's not Quincy Market (It's the big touristy destination in downtown with the food court, the buskers take their permits there very seriously).

    There are some awesome Open mics. On the 27th there is one called 3Penny at the bar Precinct in Union Sq. The host is fantastic and you will also get to meet a bunch of local musicians.
    Also if you want to check out some local music go to Sally O'briens, The Middle East (real old-school club), the Church, Lizard Lounge. These are also great bars; unless you're looking for some high end cocktail lounge with strippers.

    I would love to host you but I'll be up in Montreal ): If you need anymore tips let me know!

    If you're willing to spend a bit more money than is necessary, check out The Beehive. Better for jazz and drinks than dinner, but worth checking out for a lowkey evening regardless. Bar suggestions are best given by area, I think, but it'd be helpful to know what you're looking for. Homey dives? Sports bars? Fun and quirky? Feel free to message if you've got something more specific in mind. I'd love to help if I can!

    Check out the Middle East, and Wally's! Wally's has some great open mike nights. Also, maybe Regatta if you like Jazz. If you need a place to stay, you're welcome to crash with me. I also have a lot of good food recommendations if you're interested. Have fun!
