About The Nameless
Since 1966, The Nameless Coffeehouse has been a launching pad for many well known folk (and other) performers including Tracy Chapman, Patty Larkin, The Story (Jonatha Brooke and Jennifer Kimball), Ellis Paul, Dar Williams, John Gorka, Bob Franke, Ric Ocasek (The Cars), and comics Andy Kaufman and Jay Leno. The mission of the coffeehouse is and has always been to provide a stage for up and coming performers as well as established artists.
Originally founded by a group of Harvard students, The Nameless is a beautiful, intimate venue where you can enjoy a warm cup of coffee and enjoy some of the best entertainment in the country, presented up close & personal. The Nameless' atmosphere appeals to people from all walks of life, and across generations. Once you've joined us, you'll want The Nameless to be your regular special "night out". Discover new acts, make new friends!
