More than Worcester: A Boston Experience with Japanese Breakfast

I hope your first semester of school is going great! So far, the schoolwork on the hill has started to stack up [which is something I’ll talk more about later] and I am at a much deserved rest now during fall break. Since I didn’t go back home, that also means I have a lot of extra time on my hands.

One of the things I was excited about when coming to Holy Cross was being so close to a big city offering so many opportunities for concerts, especially smaller unknown bands. Coming from Kansas City, Missouri we do get a fair amount of different bands but it does not compare to bigger cities like Boston or New York City. In July, I bought tickets to see Japanese Breakfast, an uprising indie band. Last night, I had the experience of my life watching them perform live.

My biggest takeaway from my trip was the complex transportation system. Below are 3 tips if you ever plan on traveling to Boston on your own without the free school shuttles:

  1. Download the mTicket app to buy your tickets in advance and avoid the lines. When you get on the commuter rail, you just show your mobile ticket.
  2. Be prepared to take the T when you get there too. The Commuter rail from Boston only makes it so far and there are some distances too far to walk
  3. Examine the maps well before deciding which line you are taking and where you are stopping. You will lose a lot of time going back!
