Fortunate to live in a town with such a great venue for live music---this old brick fire house, reclaimed as a small concert hall, where MAGIC happens: folk, jazz, classical, comedy, drama and children's plays as well as local artist's paintings/photography hanging in the halls---what a gift to the folks of Metro west Boston.

Stumbled upon thi splace 5 years ago. It's a great, affordable place to watch good talent. Not a bad seat in the house but great sound/production. The stage is pretty small so the theater productions need to be a bit creative but I have seen adult and kids theater productions here and they are great. never seen a bad show there - and its affordable, can park easily nearby etc.
If you enjoy live music I would recommend checking out the schedule and giving it a try.

TCAN in Natick is a jewel. It's a great venue that has a varied, interesting schedule of performers and plays. Great people running it and volunteers. Very popular ad well-known groups come (Joan Osborne, Bella Fleck, Tom Rush, Patty Larkin, Lisa Marie Pressley......) , up and coming stars like Grace Kelley and Smokin Joe Robinson. Great veunue, great acts, great people.

This was my first time in this venue. Great place to see a show. Not a bad seat anywhere. Peter was terrific. What an opportunity to see him perform in such an intimate venue.

TCAN is large enough to attract great performers, like Tom Rush, but small enough that there isn't a bad seat in the house, and every seat is close to the stage. The open mike night is really good, and very affordable. There are also occasional theatrical performances. They also have great programs for children. It's a wonderful venue and a huge asset to Natick!
