Sneak Peek: FRI 2/22 to SUN 2/24

Thunderdome @ Elks Lodge, Feb 07
I don't know what else will make the final cut, but these will...


FRI 2/22

Boone, Topheavy, Doom Buggies, Dave Clark Band, The Buckners
at O'Brien’s, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$7 / 21+

I'll be here to bask in wall-to-wall rock -- and maybe the renovated O'Briens still has cheap PBR...? Complaints/compliments gladly accepted in person.

FRI 2/22

Lester Brown, "Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization"
at First Parish Church, 3 Church St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Lester Brown of the Earth Policy Institute has been a leading thinker on environventalism/sustainability and the economy for decades. This place will be full.

FRI 2/22

Thunderdome XI
at Greek American Political Club, 1st floor, 288 Green St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

A giant, sweaty dance party. People who want to dance but don't like dance clubs should feel welcome here. I heard the guy that organizes Thunderdome is moving.

FRI 2/22 and SAT 2/23

Various Times
13th Annual Bugs Bunny Film Festival
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

It's the Looney Tunes Revue (a combo of All Bugs Revue & Looney Centennials) on both days. An encore program screens on MON 2/25.

SAT 2/23

Silent Dance Experiment
at Faneuil Hall in front of the Sam Adams Statue

These random, public 'interactive performances' seem to be sweeping Boston. If you have an mp3 player, you might want to join in the fun... The special mix mp3 file is available, but you're not supposed to listen to it until you get there...

SAT 2/23

Wings Over Cambridge (9pm), The Lowest of Lowe (10pm), Clock Strikes Ten (11:30pm)
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+

I hope to have figured this all out by tomorrow...

Special Tribute Night to Nick Lowe (update: link fixed), Wings, and Cheap Trick.
Feat. Members of The Pills, The Gentlemen, The Rudds, Eric Salt, Phil Aiken, etc.

SAT 2/23 and SUN 2/24

10am to 6pm (5pm on SUN)
Boston Globe Travel Show
at Seaport World Trade Center, 1 Seaport Lane, Boston

Had I been on top of this, I could have told you how to get free advance tix, but I thought they'd still be available today and tomorrow... A great resource for travel/vacation info without contacting a travel agent...

SUN 2/24

Feat: Bon Savants, Wonderful Spells, Neal Pollack reads "Alternadad"
at Great Scott, 1222 Commonwealth Avenue, Allston
$8 advance / $10 door / FREE under 13

If you have kids, and you want to expose them to rock... If you owe your sibling one, you could get the kids out of the house for a few hours... If you like MILFs, and you have access to a kid...

SUN 2/24

Hallelujah The Hills, Amoroso, Titus Andronicus
at Milky Way Lounge, 403 Centre St, Jamaica Plain
FREE / Donation Appreciated

Hallelujah The Hills is kicking off their tour with a free show (but you could kick in a buck or two). Maybe they'll be too big to play the Milky Way when they return... Or not.
