SUN 2/28: Black History, Year of the Tiger, Music, Lamb, Comedy

I woke up at a reasonable time on Saturday, then I started thinking about a departed friend, which led my to listen to songs and look at photos and play guitar until I left to see my lady. I miss you, Tracy.

Also my friends at Bostonist are hosting a photo walk around Fenway at 4pm. You don't have to read the site or take a minimum amount of pictures to join in.


SUN 2/28

11:30am to 3:30pm
Black History Month Celebration
at Villa Victoria Center, 85 W Newton St, Boston (South End)
FREE Admission

Enjoy music, dance, spoken word, and food. It's kinda like a free soul food brunch. Iyeoka is one of the performers.

SUN 2/28

1pm to 4pm
Chinese New Year Celebration
form Winthrop Park to Hong Kong, 1238 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

If you missed Chinatown's celebration there will be thos gragons (lions?) in Cambridge and activities at the Hong Kong.

SUN 2/28

2:30pm to 3:30pm
"Come Celebrate the Year of the Tiger, Chinese Year 4708"
at Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

...or a concert of traditional music at the BPL.

SUN 2/28

Ambitious Tugboat, Dan Blakeslee, Manners, Damien Christian
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$6 / 18+

I'm starting to figure out that Ambitious Tugboat is configuring their Sunday afternoon residency as a forum to hear a variety of styles besides indie/experimental folk -- like the ambient stylings of Manners or the rap of Damien Christian.

SUN 2/28

The Lamb Takedown
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$15 / 18+

Close to a cheap thrill and delicious. Twenty entrants will be given 15 pounds of lamb to make something tasty for you to try. If you taste all of them, it's less than a dollar per dish. Not a bad early dinner...

Warning: the chili takedown filled Great Scott in July.

SUN 2/28

"Opera Marathon Weekend"
at CFA Concert Hall, 855 Comm Ave, Boston (BU campus)

Performances hosted by the Opera Institute:

6:30 pm -- Opera Preview
7 pm -- Gianni Schicchi
SUN 2/28

Erin Judge Hosts...
at The Comedy Studio, top of Hong Kong, 1238 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Feat: Jessie Baade, Matt D., Rich Gustus, Sarah Martin, Shane Mauss, Pat McLoud, Kris Norton, Guitler Raphael, Jacob Simon, Emma Willmann, Lady Vain, Don Zollo

I've personally witnessed Shane Mauss being frickin' hilarious. Others will likely deliver as well.

If you're not afraid of coupons, you could get a dollar off of the cover by printing this.
