Sneak Peek: SAT 1/9

Believe it or not, I'm going to write more...


SAT 1/9

Noon to ???
14th Annual Moby Dick Marathon
at New Bedford Whaling Museum, 18 Johnny Cake Hill, New Bedford

More than a hundred readers will take turns to recite Melville's classic for about 25 hours. Food and drink will be available, but you don't have to stay for the whole whale tale. It's free, so come and go as you please.

I couldn't help but use the illustration above; there is a set of photos from last year's event.

SAT 1/9

Noon to 7pm
FlexiB, "Drawing Disappearance"
at MEME Gallery, 55 Norfolk St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

It's your last chance to see FlexiB in action. As mentioned on Monday, the wall is sanded every night to start with new art on top of the 'ghosts of art past'.

Swing by if you're in Central Square.

SAT 1/9

7pm, 9:30pm
"Trust Us, This Is All Made Up": Screening and Q&A
at Somerville Theatre Screening Room, 55 Davis Square, Somerville

A 50-minute improv comedy performance becomes an 83-minute concert film with some context.

Some people will laugh their heads off, and some will scratch their heads and wonder why two guys go to such a marathon effort of improvisation.

I assume director Alex Karpovsky will participate in Q& A sessions at both screenings.

SAT 1/9

Mary Lou Lord and Guests
at Arts at The Armory Cafe, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville (Spring Hill)

The gig is not on her MySpace, but I believe the folks at the Armory:

Singer-songwriter Mary Lou Lord will give an acoustic indie folk performance, along with special guests
.Googling didn't dig up the 'special guests', which might mean the guests really are special...

SAT 1/9

The Fatal Flaw, Arletta, Technoir MA
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$9 / 21+

Take a listen, and you'll know this is going to be a kick-ass night of indie-rock.

SAT 1/9

The Motion Sick, The Downbeat 5
at Rosebud Bar & Grill, 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$5 / 21+

Two of my favorite bands are playing at the same place on the same night? I don't know if they've ever been on the same bill before. This must be like the first time someone put chocolate and peanut butter together!

I'm surprised the buzz isn't louder about the Rosebud. It's a really good spot that's hiding in plain sight behind the diner.
