A Night for Justine: A Tribute to a Boston Music Icon

by Patrick Wilson

On October 6, 2023, the Boston music community will come together to celebrate the life and legacy of Justine Covault, a beloved musician, promoter, and founder of Red on Red Records. Covault passed away suddenly in June 2023, leaving a void in the Boston music scene.

A Night for Justine will be held at the Crystal Ballroom in Somerville, Massachusetts, and will feature performances by some of Covault’s closest friends and collaborators, including Quest For Tuna, The Croaks, The Black Threads with guests, The Bags, Dink Pinkerman, Tom Baker and the Double Down, and The Unclean with guests.

Covault was a tireless supporter of the Boston music scene. She was a founding member of the band Justine and the Unclean, and she also played in the band Justine’s Black Threads. In 2020, she founded Red on Red Records, an independent record label that released music by a diverse range of Boston artists.

Covault was known for her passion for music, her generosity, and her kind spirit. She was a true friend to many, and she will be deeply missed.

A Night for Justine is a chance for the Boston music community to come together to celebrate Covault’s life and legacy. It is also an opportunity to support her family and Red on Red Records, two things that were very important to her.

The concert is open to the public, and tickets are available now. For more information, please visit the Crystal Ballroom website or the A Night for Justine Facebook page.
