SUN 10/25: Monsters, Artists, Lanterns, Jazzbos

I mentioned the Phantom Gourmet beer & food thing at Suffolk Downs for $5 from noon to 7pm. You have to buy your food and drinks. I'm usually underwhelmed by P.G. events, but the horses will be running on the track so you can watch and win your drinking/eating money...

We Have Band looks like a more-than-buzzing electro band, and they’re at Great Scott tonight.

I think you still have a chance to win tix to Big D and the Kids Table at the Paradise.


SUN 10/25

Noon to 10pm
Monster March
at City Hall Plaza, Boston (Govt Center)
FREE to watch / Donate to participate

Johnny's List of Weird Boston Events is adding his own event that might be weird, but Johnny has put together a lot of fun stuff. A minimum donation of $30/$20 to participate in one of the walks or enjoy the rides like mechanical bulls or the velcro wall.

On the other hand, one can take in the view and listen to the bands for free:

6:15pm: Ketman
7pm: Jaggery
7:45pm: Thrill the World -- group “Thriller” dance
9:05pm: Casey Desmond
Proceeds benefit suicide prevention.

SUN 10/25

Noon to 8pm
Drawing Marathon #3
at Mobius, 725 Harrison Ave, South End
$10 Donation

Bring your drawing materials, and take your time drawing the still and "not so still" subjects for the whole day. Obviously you don't need to get there at noon and you don't have to stay until the end. Obviously, all levels of ability are welcome. Feel free to bring water and snacks.

No one will count your pieces or criticize your stuff (probably)...

SUN 10/25

Annual Lantern Parade
at Jamaica Pond, 507 Jamaicaway, Jamaica Plain

Even though this looks like it’s mainly a family/kids-oriented type of activity, but single adults with attitude can also enjoy themselves.

Think of it as a bunch of people walking around Jamaica Pond with handmade lanterns for your pleasure. You walk around and enjoy the different views. (Unlike the lantern party at Forest Hills, nothing goes into the water according to the plan.)

This is the 25th anniversary of the Lantern Parade, and I read they’re hoping to have 1,000 lanterns. In other years, there have been goodies and cider for sale too.

SUN 10/25

Joe Hunt Trio w/ Terry Bernhard & Bronek Suchanek
at Lily Pad, 1353 Cambridge St, Cambridge (Inman Sq)
$10 suggested donation

These guys are serious musicians. Drummer Joe Hunt has played with Bill Evans, Stan Getz, George Russell, Jim Hall, Gary Burton, and many other greats. He also taugh at Berklee for over 30 years before retiring a couple years ago. Bassist Bronek Suchanek has held down the bottom for Don Cherry, Thad Jones, Mel Lewis, etc. Pianist Terry Bernhard must obviously be more than capable.
