WED 4/30: Ice Cream, Beer, Lesbian songs, Punk Rock

The Phenomenauts
Ahhh... Four of my favorite things...

5pm to 10pm
Baskin-Robbins 31 Cent Scoop Night
at Participating Locations
$0.31 per scoop

Got room for more ice cream? I know you do! Each person can get up to 10 scoops.

The idea is to get you in to donate to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. 'Nuff said.

WED 4/30

6pm to 10:30pm
New England Real Ale Exhibition
at VFW George Dilboy Post, 371 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)

I might go on Saturday when the admission is only $5, but this could be worth your while considering you probably don't have to tip...

This year, we are making a special effort to ensure a pleasant, pub-like atmosphere for all sessions.

As in 2007, we will offer about 80 firkins of Real Ale. Half will be U.K. beers from England, Scotland, and Wales; half will be American beers from New England. All the beers are cask-conditioned, served by gravity or hand-pump. As always, there will be new casks tapped every day, with special British beers reserved for Saturday. We encourage you to attend the "off-peak" sessions on Wednesday and Saturday.

This year we trying an experiment this year with a single Saturday afternoon / early evening session.

Cash Bar Prices
Imperial Pint (20 oz) $5.00
Half Pint (10 oz) $2.50
Quarter Pint (5 oz) $1.50
(Also SAT 5/3 -- Noon to 7pm -- $5)

WED 4/30

7:30pm to 9pm
"Still Ain't Satisfied!": Songs from Boston's Golden Age of Lesbian & Feminist Music
at Lifelong Learning Institute, 43 Hawes Street, Brookline (Wheelock College)

Who knew there was a "golden age" of lesbian & feminist music?

Performance and discussion with Marcia Deihl.

From "Ode to a Gym Teacher" to "I Enjoy Being a Gull," from goddess worship to socialist feminist uprisings, from the New Harmony Sisterhood's genesis to the Michigan Fesival, Marcia revisits the 70s local women's music scene via her favorite songs. Bring your own memories, artifacts, and gossip, and be ready to sing along. Not just a nostalgia trip, but a soul-filling energy boost for these hard days.

WED 4/30

The Phenomenauts, The A.K.A.s, Maldroid, Bad Ash
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / 18+

I really think this is the best rock/punk/rockabilly show that I haven't seen much talk about. Heck The Phenomenauts are awesome AND they're from the future... Bad Ash (and every other band) rocks!
