Sneak Peek -- SAT 2/21

Not a bad variety of options...


SAT 2/21

Kevin Seconds, Kepi Ghoulie, Ian Adams
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / All Ages

For you old punks out there, it's a solo acoustic performance from Kevin of 7 Seconds and Kepi from the Groovie Ghoulies joined by Ian Adams doing his new quiet thang after the recent demise of his local horror-billy outfit Rock City Crimewave. Kepi was recently at the Plough & Stars, so he must've had a good reception. And it's a daytime show, if you can no longer stay up late...

SAT 2/21

Capoeira Gerais Open House
at Boston Ultimate Fitness / Nam Pai Academy, 7th Fl, 33 Harrison Ave, Boston (Chinatown)

It's a Brazilian martial art... It's dance... It's good exercise... All of the above, I think. It could be fun. I have a feeling that people who are really out of shape may not want to try it out right away, but no one is going to force you to do anything.


Make sure to wear or bring comfortable clothing and sneakers. A TOWEL and WATER strongly recommended, because you are going to sweat! (If you forget the water, there are vending machines and a water fountain at the gym.)
SAT 2/21

Josh Lederman & Cambridge-Somerville All-Stars
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass. Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Josh Lederman vaguely recognizes me, because we have several mutuals friends and have chatted on a few occasions. I've always enjoyed his motley blend of rootsy music that ranges from plaintive Americana to heartland rock intensity to Irish/klezmer frenzy. It's excellent soundtrack for day drinking, and he and his musical friends are usually at the Plough every Saturday afternoon.

SAT 2/21

Sarah Borges (7pm), Bill Janovitz & Friends (10pm)
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

It's not on her website or MySpace, but I don't doubt the Toad folks that Sarah is going to do an early set. I think she's awesome -- voice of an angel, great material, great attitude, easy on the eyes... Some of my friends initially dismiss her as "country", but listen a bit longer and you see she's more like Donny & Marie ("a li'l bit country, a li'l bit rock 'n roll").

Do I have to say anything about Bill Janovitz? Buffalo Tom!?

SAT 2/21

Licentious Revelry
at The Savant Project, 1625 Tremont St, Boston (Mission Hill)
$10 (includes a shot)

From the folks that brought you Sex and Drugs Trivia, it's a party with your pants off. Yep, it's party to show off your body and good underwear. There could be some free vodka drinks from Three Olives between 10:30pm and 12:30am.

RSVP required.

If attending, you must FULLY participate. No sweaters, no robes. Just underwear, bras, nighties, and boxers; creativity encouraged. Please no thongs! and no PJ top/bottom sets -- show some sex appeal, kids! Also no flash photography. There will be a photographer and a private website but no tagging of photos will occur!
Remember: It's Boston -- everyone is pale... (And maybe a little doughy from the winter?)

SAT 2/21 & SUN 2/22

Ron Holbrook Memorial Shows
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$10 / 21+

The Welch Boys, Shiner 8, Mark Lind and the Unloved, The Ashers, Drago, Nowhere USA, The Bloodshot Hooligans

The Welch Boys, Refuse Resist, The Scars, The Spoilers, Burning Streets, The Beantown Boozehounds, Far from Finished

On either night you'll see a shitload of great Boston punk. Ron Holbrook was the original drummer for The Welch Boys, and he passed away in '07. The proceeds will benefit his widow and two daughters.
