TUES 12/23: Cheap Awesome Music & Redbones Coupon

Corin and Dave, about 6 years ago
If I was in town on Tuesday night, I'd try to be at TT's. Look at young(er) Corin Ashley and Dave Aaronoff up there. These guys should be on every girl's bedroom wall...


TUES 12/23

TT the Bears' Holiday Show
Township (11:30pm), The Luxury (11:10pm), Wide Iris (10:50pm), AdFrank (10:30pm), Francine (10:10pm), Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents (9:50pm), Corin Ashley & Dave Aaronoff (9:30pm), Tom Baker & Jim Buni (9:10pm), Jonny Pape (8:50pm), Eric Doberman (8:30pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

I think the annual holiday show is sometimes free (always cheap!), and $3 is paltry amount for this cavalcade of awesome music. The proceeds are going to help Jeanne Sheehy, the bartender and good person was diagnosed with cancer last year. Many of the folks who played benefits for her last year are also playing tonight.

So many terrific performers are going to play, it'll be difficult to be disappointed. If you don't like the show, get in touch with me and maybe we can work out a reimbursement out of my own pocket. BUT if you tell me you didn't like Jenny Dee (aka Jen D of Downbeat 5), I might lose some respect for you.

TUES 12/23

Audrey Ryan (10pm), Hilken Mancini (8pm)
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

Maybe you want to hear just a couple singer-songwriters excelling for more than 15 minutes. This is the place for you amigo, whether you go early or late or park yourself at a table all night. Hilken Mancini is more of a straight-up rocker in a full band or playing solo -- but she's rock star. (Check out one of her new projects, indie-rock supergroup Gramercy Arms.)

Audrey Ryan is in the middle of a December Tuesday residency, so you can check her out next week too. Her sweet high voice flutters around on original melodies, and it carries thoughtful lyrics. Very good stuff!

TUES 12/23

4pm and after
21%-off Entree
at Redbones, 55 Chester St, Somerville (Davis Sq)

Redbones has been making my belly happy ever since I moved to Boston. Good food, good beer selection -- that's more than enough for me... I've mentioned this before; as part of their 21st anniversary, they're making discounts available on various Tuesdays.

Bring the coupon seen below. It says one entree per person, and you should be able to get a deal on every diner. (I used one of these coupons, and they didn't give me any trouble. Maybe print one per person to be safe...) It also says "eat in or take out", so please mention the coupon when ordering by phone -- or when the waitperson is helping you.
