RLife LIVE: C+C=Maxigross performing at the Renaissance Boston Capiz Lounge

What are you’re plans for Saturday night? You could hit the same clubs and bars, but if you want to try something a little fresher, I’ve got what you’re looking for.

The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel Capiz Lounge is taking part in a pretty kick-ass series called RLife LIVE. It’s a series happening at many of the 150 unique Renaissance Hotels worldwide, with a focus on independent and emerging artists. A very cool aspect of these events is they are much more intimate than you’d get at a typical concert experience. If you want to add another layer of cool — it’s free. All you have to spring for is your cocktails and your snacks! Be sure to check in on what concoctions mixologist Casey Carney has in store for you.

This Saturday night, the series boasts a solid up-and-comer. Starting at 9:00 PM you can check out the Italian band C+C=Maxigross, an up & coming Italian band recently featured in Rolling Stone Italy.

Here are some of the upcoming concerts you can check out at the Capiz Lounge:
