Sneak Peek: FRI 3/7 to SUN 3/9

Jerkus Circus, 3/9
Here are a few things that will very likely make tomorrow's full list...


FRI 3/7

The Fleshtones, Lyres, The Prime Movers
at Harpers Ferry, 158 Brighton Avenue, Allston
$10 / 18+

Garage-rock cult-heroes The Fleshtones are joined by two of Boston's greatest.

FRI 3/7

"Jerkus Circus" w/ The Steamy Bohemians & Friends
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+

Besides the ribald humor and music of The Steamy Bohemians, there's more and more and more from comedians Tim Kaelin, Ira Proctor, Renata Tutko, The Untrainables; burlesque by Babes in Boinkland; clever kinetic comedy from Daniel Forlano, an acoustic set from Fluttr Effect, AND sexy hula hooping...

(Psst... Print out the flyer above for $2 off admission.)

FRI 3/7

8pm to 10pm
"Don Byron's Musical Worlds Part I"
at Kresge Auditorium, 48 Massachusetts Ave (Rear), Cambridge (MIT campus)

I've known Don Byron as a clarinetist but he's an equally talented saxophonist. This guy is the real deal. He should be playing at one of the good jazz clubs in town, but he's also into music education. For a fraction of a full cover -- and no drink minimum -- you should get a good concert. Also playing on SAT 3/15.

FRI 3/7 & SAT 3/8

10am to 4pm
The Somerville Maple Syrup Project: "The Big Boil"
at Somerville Community Growing Center, 22 Vinal Ave, Cambridge (Union Sq)

Someone thought I made a snide comment about this event last year, but it would be interesting to see if you're in the neighborhood...

FRI 3/7

"Gentleman's Whisky and Chat Night"
at Grand, 374 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)

UPDATE: This is full. Those that haven't RSVP'd are S.O.L.

SAT 3/8

Elements of Cinema: "Harlan County, USA"
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Intense documentary about coal miners followed by a discussion led by a documentary filmmaker, Tracy Strain.

SAT 3/8

11am, 2pm, 7pm
Boston Massacre Reenactment
at Old State House, 206 Washington St, Boston (Govt Center)

Young people are doing it at 11am and 2pm; adults at 7pm. The reenactment might be diffferent than what you remember from history class. (If you remember anything like that...)

SAT 3/8

The Nightingales (Midnight), The Konks (11pm), Hotpants Romance (10pm), Apple Betty (9pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$8 / 21+

The Nightingales (UK) made their first trip to Boston last year after 20+ years, and now they return with British up-'n-comers Hotpants Romance. Both The Konks and Apple Betty rock studendously well.

SAT 3/8

9pm to 2am
"Come Home": Fundraiser for Zebbler's Mom
at The Good Life, 28 Kingston St, Boston (Downtown Crossing)
$10 donation

No, that's not an "American Pie" reference. Do you remember the dreadlocked guy who put up the Mooninite lite-brites last year? His mother still lives in Belarus and is being harassed by the government. He's trying to raise funds to help her move to Poland where she'll be safe.

Some acoustic performances from 9pm to 11pm, electronica & more afterwards, and art etc throughout.

SUN 3/9

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School Cabaret Life Drawing Class
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston

Another edition of the best drawing session in Boston. Wilder and looser than any other art class you've been to. You won't feel so bad about your drawing skills. Crazy models, contests, and prizes -- oh my!
