WED 6/4: Naked Comedy, Burlesque, Punk/Metal & Art

Boylesque Follies, Midway Cafe
Some nudity and semi-nudity tonight... Home nudity with a loved (or lusted) one is always a cheap thrill. (Add some wine, and see where things go...) Happy Humpday!


WED 6/4

Wild Zero, HOTBLACK, The Under, Mantooth
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$8 / 21+

With Wild Zero and HOTBLACK, you're gonna get loud 'n fast headbanging tunes. On the other hand, The Under offers a more complex metal sound which moves in different directions. At some points the guitars teeter on going too far into tweedly prog-metal (but they keep the technique in check); at other points it doesn't sound metal at all. Mantooth pounds it out with squalling distorto-licks with some sludginess.

Stuff from the weekly list:

WED 6/4

The Naked Comedy Showcase
at ImprovBoston, 40 Prospect St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Naked Comedy Showcase takes place the first Wednesday of every month, but I think summertime is the best time to go, at least the best time to perform without any clothes. Comedians of both genders will entertain you beyond the gimmick (in the case of the female comedians, "gimmicks").

WED 6/4

The Boylesque Follies w/ Sway, Good Anatomy
at Midway Cafe, 3496 Washington St, Jamaica Plain

Yes, boylesque -- male dancers. There will be female dancers as well, so you'll get something for everyone. I can imagine all sorts of entertainment with a bit of an edge: comedy, magic, dancing. It might be tame (YouTube), it might be wild... Sway will perform a set of sounds like modern Appalachian mountain music to me.

WED 6/4

4pm to 9:45pm
Free Wednesdays
at Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave, Boston (The Fens)

Maybe you forgot that you can go on any Wednesday evening for free?

You got a collection that includes ancient art from around the world, Renaissance art, Rembrandt, Monet, Renoir, Gaugin, Picasso, Van Gogh, Turner, Jackson Pollock. It's there and much more.
