Dave Tree, punk rock frontman for bands, TREE and SEE THIS WORLD, is no stranger to the Boston art scene. After moving out of Watertown last year, Dave has been looking for a new home to showcase talented artists along with established bands.
Dave originally had an underground loft space on Ruggs Road in Allston where he hosted many art shows and live performances. The building was sold for condo development, pushing him to a store front in Watertown before the building was sold in late 2017.
“I think there has to be a migration out of Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville areas by artists and musicians in order to survive because of the rents and real estate madness. It’s hard to find a space to work and show work in the city, so in order to keep working we have look for other alternatives.”
