Sneak Peek: FRI 1/18, SAT 1/19, & MLK Day

A few things that look interesting... Stay tuned...


FRI 1/18

Debo Band, Keys to the Streets of Fear, more
at Milky Way Lounge, 403 Centre St, Jamaica Plain
$7 / 21+7

Ethiopian (via JP) horn band and swingin' indie-rock join with a couple DJ's for good times for people with open ears and working tail-feather.

FRI 1/18

6pm to 9PM
Benefit for Sadie + Exile
Feat: Sway, Evan Greer, Bambuu, Puppet Show(?)
at Lucy Parsons Center, 549 Columbus Ave, Boston (South End)
$5 to $20 (pay what you like)

Radical entertainment! Sadie and Exile are also known as Joyanna Zacher and Nathan Block, a couple animal-loving, fire-starting kids who were jailed for arson. I read a couple articles, and it seems like they were also branded as "eco-terrorists".

Whatever your position, this is a defense fund/awareness-raiser with some good music, a puppet show, vegan baked goods, merch, and probably some speakers.

FRI 1/18 & SAT 1/19

Sarah Borges & the Broken Singles Homecoming Shows
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 advance / $12 door / 21+

FRI: w/ Danielle Miraglia and Blueheels
SAT: w/ Blueheels and Teenage Prayers

I screwed up by not listing this sooner. The advance tix for Saturday are sold out, but some will be available at the door.

SAT 1/19

Lyres, The Prime Movers, The Time Beings, The Sprained Ankles
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$9 / 18+

Release party for CD "He Put The Bomp In The Bomp", a tribute to Bomp Records founder Greg Shaw.

SAT 1/19

Marah, Adam and Dave’s Bloodline, AM Stereo
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 advance / $12 day of show / 18+

Great straight-ahead rock.

SAT 1/19

6PM to late
Jesse Kaminsky and Dirk Adams, "Anoxia"
at Ark Studios, 17 Edinboro St #3, Boston (Chinatown)

The sculptural installation, Anoxia, is a one-room environment made of cardboard, balloons, string, LEDs and a three channel sound collage. The visual elements interact with each other sonically, and activate the space similarly to a live performance. As a temporary installation, the sculptures will live for only one night. Envisioned by Jesse Kaminsky and Dirk Adams, Anoxia, meaning "without oxygen", refers to a condition of oxygen deprivation that affects both humans and bodies of water alike.

The exhibition will be followed by music and sound by Gang Clan Mafia (Mobius Artists Group members Vela Phelan and Dirk Adams) and other acts to be announced.

Sponsored by Grolsch.
(free/cheap beer?)

Thanks, Max!

SAT 1/19

10:30 PM
Cheap Thrills a Go-Go! 1-year anniversary party w/ Thru the Keyhole Go-Go Girls and DJ Leah
at Common Ground, 85 Harvard Ave, Allston

Cheap Thrills a Go-Go! is Boston’s delirious Sexadelic Sixties Dance Party for the “Now” Generation. Join us for a wild evening of hipshakin’ records, vintage 16mm film and psychedelic light projections, good vibrations, and low down rump shakin’ galore.
We're not associated except for our love of cheap thrills.
