Sneak Peek: SAT 11/21

Boston League of Women Wrestlers, Saturday at PA's Lounge
It seems unnaturally warm, so you might as well enjoy it. More to come, I hope...


SAT 11/21 & SUN 11/22

Noon to 6pm
Annual Open Studios
at Brickbottom Studios, 1 Fitchburg St, Somerville (near Lechmere)
at Joy Street Studios, 86 Joy St, Somerville (near Union Sq)

See art, talk about art, walk to more art, maybe buy some art... About 110 artists in various media are participating between the 2 locations that are quite close to each other.

Slim Jim & The Mad Cows are playing at Brickbottom at 6:30pm.

SAT 11/21

Jason Crigler
at Atwood's Tavern, 877 Cambridge St , Cambridge

The early evening can be pleasantly spent in an East Cambridge bar with many beers on tap and folky rock on stage from a man who's living inspirational story (and documentary).

SAT 11/21

Jeff Huckleberry, "A Very Beautiful Art Show For You": Closing Reception
at Meme Gallery, 55 Norfolk St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Could be interesting; I think the exhibit will many be a video of performances that have occurred during the show. It's probably be something weird. I walked by the gallery last week, and the artist has a wild look in his eyes.

SAT 11/21

International Pop Overthrow: Night #3
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$10 / 21+

8pm: Cliff Hillis
8:30pm: Carlene Barous
9pm: Popfilter
9:30pm: Golden Bloom
10pm: The Motion Sick
10:30pm: The Montgomerys
11pm: Topheavy
11:30pm: The Lights Out
I said earlier this week to pick any night and enjoy, but this is the best night of this year's IPO from beginning to end.

SAT 11/21

El-P (Midnight), Bodega Girls (10:50pm), Faces On Film (9:45pm)
at Johnny D's, 17 Holland St, Somerville (Davis Sq)

Alias "The Echo Nestival", it's the performance portion of a music-app building get-together -- with rapper El-P, funky dance-rockers Bodega Girls, and folky Faces On Film.

Looks like you can get in as a listener for an eclectic line-up.

SAT 11/21

"The Cover Up" does "The Last Waltz"
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$9 advance / $10 / 21+

Feat: The Rationales, The Phil Aiken Army, The Teenage Prayers, The Beau Roland Band

Special guests: Ad Frank, Andy Cambria, Brendan Boogie, John Powhida, Mike Verge, Pip, more

Did you ever see the movie about The Band's farewell concert? Some of the biggest rock stars joined them, and there were more hits than misses.

(I would wager this group of musicians will ingest a much, much smaller amount of drugs and alcohol.)

SAT 11/21

B.L.O.W.W., Guillermo Sexo, Young Tremors
at PA's Lounge, 345 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)
$8 -- 21+ / $11 -- 18+

Boston League of Women Wrestlers is fun and campy. Yes, girls rock. Live bands will rock you too.

SAT 11/21

Eddie Japan, Kingsley Flood
at Rosebud Bar & Grill (behind Diner), 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$5 / 21+

Kickass rootsy rock and some really cool, classy pop-rock at my new favorite secret bar in Davis Sq.
