TCAN's successful Rock Off Main rock music program is an all-ages show that provides a venue for local bands (middle, high school, college, just out of college) to take their eclectic mix of music out of their basements and put it on stage where it belongs, performing for their peers. Shaking the old firehouse for the past seventeen years, Rock Off Main features the best pop, emo, punk, ska, hardcore, and indie bands in the Boston area.
