Cheap Thrills: THUR 2/14

Feel like going out instead of eating a tub of Haagen-Dazs? Here are a few ideas. Stay tuned for a "sneak peek" of the weekend...


THUR 2/14

Richard Wrangham, "Why We Cook: Food and Pairbonds in Human Evolution": Lecture
at Geological Lecture Hall, Harvard Museum of Natural History, 24 Oxford St, Cambridge (Harvard campus)

Educate yourself about how food has affected human mating over time. Then get out the whipped cream and edible underwear!

THUR 2/14

6:30pm to 9pm
3rd annual CAVS GIANT Art Party
at Center for Advanced Visual Studies, 265 Mass Ave, 3rd Floor, Cambridge (MIT Museum building)

A party that celebrates BIG art. A very big cake will be served, and you might get your portrait drawn... Hey, it's free and open to the public.

THUR 2/14

Amber Spyglass (11pm), Alison Wood (10pm), Fitless (9pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$7 / 21+

Fitless is the best Scottish/Basque alt-rock band this side of the Watertown-Belmont line. Get a little rocktronica with Amber Spyglass and some folkiness from Alison Wood.

THUR 2/14

Viva Viva's Valentine's Day Prom w/ Mittens, DJs Nighttime Gallagher & Gucci Vuitton
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$9 / 18+

Viva Viva and Mittens are two excellent indie-rock bands. People are encouraged to "dress" for the prom. DJ Nighttime Gallagher is the singer from Apollo Sunshine.

THUR 2/14

Chris Wilhelm
at Middle East - Corner, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

A very good local singer-songwriter.
