The BOTMC Spring Situation is a shorter, all-volunteer event featuring performances and workshops by local musicians with occasional out-of-town visitors. Typically it consists of a free afternoon open house at the Freight and Salvage, though occasionally it has also included square dances at Ashkenaz or the Marxist Library.
