SUN 7/27: Forecast -- Rain.

rainy day ahead
So, they say it's going to rain in a few hours... I wouldn't get excited about any of the outdoor activities today... There are a couple music shows tonight.

I saw "The Dark Knight" yesterday and it was really good... I know there's pub trivia out there too...


SUN 7/27

11am to 3pm
Davis Square Community Yard Sale
at Hodgkins Park, about 100 Holland St, Somerville (near Teele Sq)


See the Facebook page for updates.

SUN 7/27

Noon to 10pm
Annual Lowell Folk Festival
at Various Spots in Downtown Lowell

It's not raining yet, so you might be able to hit the food stands...? Maybe catch some tunes...?

SUN 7/27

"As You Like It": Shakespeare in the Park
at Parkman Bandstand, about 165 Tremont St, Boson (Boston Common)

On the bright side, there are more shows from TUES 7/29 thru SUN 8/3...

SUN 7/27

Death Vessel, The Needy Visions, Meanings
at Milky Way Lounge, 403 Centre St, Jamaica Plain

Exciting music in a mostly acoustic vein. Before Joel Thibodeau of Death Vessel was moved to Brooklyn, signed to Sub Pop or was a music blog darling, he grew up in Maine and Boston. He's going to do a solo set, but it should be really amazing. Apparently the high feminine vocals on the recordings are Joel. The Needy Visions have a joyfully ramshackle quality to them; I think it would be fun see them live. The fellow in Meanings sounds a bit like some other artist I love. I want to say Mark Eitzel/American Music Club, but there's plenty to enjoy without making a comparison.

SUN 7/27

Icy Demons, Pretty & Nice, Paparazzi
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$9 / 18+

Quite a mixed line-up, but the music sounds good to me. Icy Demons take reggae and mix it all sorts elements. Pretty & Nice play delicious, hook-filled punk. Paparazzi are wild, angular indie-rockers who sound like they know how to rip it up.
