The Boston Tea Party was a concert venue located on Berkley Street (later relocated to Lansdowne Street in the former site of competitor, The Ark) in Boston, Massachusetts. It operated from 1967 to 1971. Originally the site of a synagogue, the location was later converted into a venue that showed underground films, before being bought by Ray Riepen and David Hahn and converted again into a concert venue. It opened as a rock music hall on January 20, 1967.
The venue became associated with the psychedelic movement, being similar in this way to other contemporary rock halls such as New York's Fillmore East and Electric Circus, San Francisco's Fillmore West, and Philadelphia's Electric Factory. Originally playing host to exclusively local acts, the venue quickly began to attract performances by many famous artists. (Wikipedia)
