n the weekends, Wonder Bar is far from a hidden gem. Its club scene has been attracting area undergrads for years. Show up on a Tuesday or Wednesday night, though, and you’ll wonder if you’re in the same place. Ever since Wobblesauce, a band of local electro-funk rockers, teamed up with the multifaceted artist-management group the Brain Trust to create Wobble Wednesdays, Wonder Bar has become a hub of creative talent. Every Wednesday features a new lineup of bands and showcases a new set of artists and craftsmen. There’s a mere $5 cover and the show goes until 2 a.m. And come by Tuesdays for Secret Sessions.

The MBTA B Line, which serves Wonder Bar, once extended to Norumbega Park in Newton. The tracks along Commonwealth Avenue from Packard’s Corner to Chestnut Hill Avenue were laid in 1900 and electrified in 1909.
