TUES 1/12: Party, Folk, Comedy

Jeez, please excuse my human error and technical difficulties...


TUES 1/12

6:30pm to 8:30pm
Body Issue Party
at Cafeteria, 279a Newbury St, Boston (Back Bay)

Stuff Boston has changed its tune slightly -- from last year's "Best Bodies" to "Bodies by Boston". The article suggests that they purposely decided to go for something deeper than a cheesecake/beefcake fest.

I actually went to this party last year (when they had vodka drinks...?), and I only recognized one of the hard bodies from the issue. It doesn't hurt to enjoy a few free apps and MGD 64's...

I think you can still RSVP, but everyone who wants to go to a Stuff(at)Night party needs to individually register for the list.

Tuesday Acoustic Showcase w/ Beth Jean, Christa Gniadek
at Tommy Doyle's (upstairs), 96 Winthrop St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

I accidentally went to dinner upstairs on a Tuesday night and heard some solid music. It's really not a bad place. (I hesitate to call it fake-Irish when lots of Irish people actually work there.) This week there are two talented women with acoustic guitars, delightful voices, and some catchy tunes.

Beth Jean moved from Boston to LA like Bleu who produced her album. She also made a claymation video for a L.E.O. song. Beth Jean is also on the bill at Precinct on Friday.

The Rob Crean Show
w/ Sameer Naseem, Sharkee Katz, Tim Vargulish & Ahmed Bharoocha,
Living Faux
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$7 / 21+

It's a comedy show in the format of variety/talk show with various segments, interviews, and performances. It's a funny group of people doing something other than a your average stand-up show. It's a comedy show in the format of variety/talk show. Imagine a late-night talk show with various segments, interviews, and performances. I don't see why this couldn't be a hit for NBC at 3:30 in the morning...

For those who think guitar & drum duos have too many strings, there are bass & drum duos like Living Faux. Unlike Death from Above 1979, tonight's musical guests make a bluesier ruckus.

A good night for no "drink minimum" comedy.
