TUES 1/26: Haiti Benefit, Winedown, Film, Beer Art

I offer a quote:

I have ever hated all nations, professions, and communities, and all my love is toward individuals.

-- Jonathan Swift

Stay tuned for more info, but I took the first step to have a TV show on Somerville cable-access. I'll share the details as it goes along, but the process will take a couple months.

Update: I missed that rockingly wonderful The Organ Beats are playing at Church tonight.

January Winedown: "Let's Go"
at Harvard Book Store, 1256 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Although "Let's Go" travel guides are geared towards the student-traveler (founded by a Harvard student and still written by students), they can provide good ideas to anyone exploring an unfamiliar corner of the country or the world.

Besides mixing and mingling with a few glasses of wine, members of Let's Go Publications will be there to offer some informal travel advice.

"Fish Tank": Screening
at Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square, Somerville
FREE w/ Flyer

I watched a trailer, and it's a story of a British teen who lives with her too-young mother that seems like she barely took a break from partying. The frame of the story is not terribly original, but the characters can grab you in just a couple minutes, and there seems to be some appealing yet difficult twists in this Cannes prize-winner.

Print the [PDF flyer] to admit two.

"Please arrive early. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and is NOT guaranteed."

TUES 1/26

8PM - 11PM
"EYE F*CK with PBR": Exhibit
at The Savant Project, 1625 Tremont St, Boston (Mission Hill)

Maybe it's just me, but the team at Savant Project comes up with some great event ideas. I've occasionally bragged my butt to Mission Hill to have a good time at this little spot. When some calls an art exhibit "EYE F*CK", they've got me on board!

Maybe it's often the beer that artists can afford or maybe it's just a Pabst promotion, there's much more "blue ribbon"-inspired images than I would've expected on this one site. More of this kind of stuff will be on display along with some free PBR shwag and probably some free bites -- and obviously cheap beer for sale.

Could it be an arty party without some DJ's spinning (DJ Knife & Coatti Mondi)?
