SUN 1/31: Stories & Song

There’s a lot of good stuff going on today after the Celtics-Lakers game. I’ll be brief.


SUN 1/31

6pm to 9pm
Story Slam: "It's Relative"
at the Enormous Room, 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$7 / $5 students, seniors / FREE - Cambridge residents who tell a story

Are you ready to tell a 5-minute story about a relative? If it’s good enough, you could win a prize and be invited to "The Big Mouthoff" in April at the Boston Public Library. After everyone has put their name into consideration, 10 people are chose randomly to perform. If you’re not story-telling, you might end up judging.
Games and other fun will happen between presentations.

Hosted by Doria Hughes & Will Luera

SUN 1/31

Haiti Benefit
Feat: Boy Without God, Jesse Gallagher, Ryan Walsh, Milo Jones, Mr Sister
at Atomic Bean Cafe, 902 Mass Ave, Cambridge
- Give What You Can -

Please give a decent amount, because these are 5 performers that are going to give great songs and music that would easily be a $10+ show. You don’t usually get this quality at a coffeehouse. (In case you don't recognize their names, you've heard Jesse with Apollo Sunshine and Ryan with Hallelujah the Hills.) A special show for a damn good cause.

SUN 1/31

Tony the Bookie Orchestra, Sodafrog
at Rosebud Bar & Grill (behind Diner), 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$5 / 21+

Dang, this is a pretty sweet show too. If you open your ears ever so slightly to Tony the Bookie Orchestra, they’ll blow them wide open for some trippy country-rock. Sodafrog holds your undivided attention with direct delivery and deep, finely honed songs.

The Rosebud is like a concert hall with the ample seating yet there's a dance floor and milling area by the bar.

SUN 1/31

Chandler Travis Quartet Or So
at Atwoods Tavern, 877 Cambridge St, Cambridge (near Inman & Kendall Sq)

Chandler Travis always amuses with his multicolored, multi-genre music and wardrobe.

SUN 1/31

Crash Kings, Paper Tongues
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$9 / 18+

Could these guys already be on the radio? “WBOS presents” what seems like pop/rock that’s on the cusp of getting popular.

SUN 1/31

The Entrance Band (11pm), Lights (10pm), Lord Jeff (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Some good ‘n noisy rock from out of town. Give it a listen even if you can't make it!
