MON 7/28: Ice Cream Art, Music Movies

ice cream people art party at milky way lounge tonight
I still think the "Ice Cream People" Party at the Milky is the best chance for fun tonight, but here are a couple other options...


MON 7/28

"Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement": Screening & Discussion
at Honan-Allston Public Library auditorium, 300 N Harvard St, Allston

Maybe I'd change my mind if I watched the film, but I'm pretty sure filmmaker Alex Jones is a kook. Do I think that the powerful do as much as possible to maintain their position? Yes, sure. Do I think they want to "exterminate 80% of the world's population"? Umm, no. Should be a spirited discussion afterwards...

MON 7/28

Viva Viva, Age Rings, Amoroso
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$5 / 21+

Late update: A 5 dollars well-spent!

MON 7/28

Tony The Bookie, Ryan Lee Crosby, Dave Godowsky
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

I have to say I was a little hesitant to pay attention to Tony The Bookie at first, but his music is pretty good. Ryan Lee Crosby is a terrific songwriter, and Dave Godowsky knows his way around a melody. If I want to be out late on a Monday night, ZuZu is a good place to be.

From the Weekly List:

MON 7/28

"Ice Cream Art Project": Party
at Milky Way Lounge, 403 Centre St, Jamaica Plain

Gotta love Milky Way Lounge. Bowling and pool are already free on Mondays. Still they have fun things going on like a party that celebrates anthropomorphic ice cream art. The premise these are
depictions of actual living things. Hey, I don't believe in Santa Claus either.

Look at the pictures... Draw your own... Watch others draw... Imbibe... Repeat... There's manic synth-rock from Thunderhole and ambient washes from Main Fader.

MON 7/28

Cocked 'N Loaded, The Throwaways, Mantra
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Charlie's Kitchen is pretty damn cool bar with a great jukebox, but they might be close to jumping the shark after being mentioned in Esquire and opening a beer garden. Nah, I still love it there! Not aware of Mantra, but Cocked 'N Loaded rawk out just as you'd suppose a band with that name would. The Throwaways did the "fast and loud" quite well when I saw them, although I think they've changed singers since then.

MON 7/28 (to SUN 8/3)

Roxbury Film Festival Presents: "Pray The Devil Back To Hell"
at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline
$10 / $8 students

This documentary about how a women's movement brought change to Liberia is supposed to be quite powerful. Many other films you might not see are screening at various locations of the next week as part of the Roxbury Film Festival. Most programs are $10 or under except for screenings at the MFA ($12). Some of the guests at the festival include: Robert Townsend, Charles Burnett, Ruby Dee, Sheryl Lee Ralph.

The pre-festival screening of the RFF takes place in Brookline, but don't dwell on that. It's one of those things that might make your head explode...
