Opus Underground is a concert venue and restaurant in downtown Salem MA featuring nightly entertainment spanning all ranges of entertainment from Hip Hop and Reggae to Burlesque and Karaoke.
If you live in Salem, Ma. and you're a music fan, then you already know what we lovingly call the "Underground." If you don't, you seriously need to come visit here soon! Opus Underground is nothing less than a Haven for incredible music. It's a venue that supports, believes, and embraces live, local music. With an incredible team of staff and management, whose focus is always on booking top notch local talent, the quality of the music is always the main priority!
I myself, have been fortunate enough to be a music photographer that lives less than a mile from this Venue. I count myself extremely lucky to constantly have an option of shooting such incredible talent. It has whole heartily become my home away from home and over the last two years I've covered about a hundred live shows here.
It doesn't matter what your flavor of music is, because honestly we've got that! Each Monday night features local and national Punk bands at "It's Gonna Get Weird", Tuesdays you can come test your chops at "Underground Karaoke" and Thursday night (my personal favorite) "Reggae Thursday" is where again incredible local and national acts are being booked weekly! Any other night of the week ... well they're being stacked with great jazz acts, or folk acts, or jam bands, or slammin hip hop, or funk bands! The most unforgettable nights though, are when a collaboration takes place or a special guests jump on stage, the room absolutely just explodes with energy!
In saying that, I'd like to share with you all my personal collection of the music and some of the moments that have happen here thus far. It's been an incredible experience and I hope that you can feel just how uplifting and amazing a live local show is! I hope it inspires you to come out and see a show soon and motivates you to give some support back to local musicians. I for one will continue to give this venue and these musicians my support. I hope you all enjoy the pictures and if you're ever at the Underground come over and please say Hello!
