Asylum closed today, pending further developments
The Asylum will be closed today in order to assist law enforcement in the continuing hunt for the remaining suspect from Monday’s bombing and last night’s shooting. Although Somerville itself is not included in the official lock-down, I strongly urge users to stay in place as they are directing for Watertown, Newton, Cambridge, and all of the city of Boston. The MBTA is shut down and residents are being discouraged from gathering at bus stops and public areas.
As long as the emergency continues, programs and events at the Asylum are suspended. We will be updating our website throughout the day with any developments.
