ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - Little Studio That Could
"This Somerville-born multimedia studio has been twice displaced—first to make room for the Green Line’s as-yet-unrealized extension through the ’hood, then again in January of last year, when a legal battle with its new landlord almost put it out of business for good. Thanks to fundraising efforts from a community of fans and fellow artists, however, Starlab has found new digs in Charlestown, where the studio’s small staff of four has been back to work on local projects in music, photography and film and video production, including a recent music video shoot for local punk band the The Dazies and a short sci-fi film shot [Directed by Paul Villanova and Jim DanDee Produced by Auspicious Phoenix Productions] in Somerville. And they’re back to work on September’s Starlabfest, the annual music fest and block party they’ve been throwing for eight years. Keep shining"
