THUR 2/11: Photo, Talk, Music, Film

What a friggin' meager snowstorm! It'll be a long time before I forget The Dusting of '10... Thanks to the Virgin America's schedule backup, they cancelled my flight today -- and the next available departure is next Tuesday!

My mood sucks, so I can't really get excited about anything today.

If you grew up watching videos on V66, you might want to catch some of the classic local bands (including O Positive) play a "Reunion Show" at House of Blues tonight or check out the documentary.


THUR 2/11

6pm to 8pm
Linda Hirsch, "Cuba: Threads of Hope & Renewal": Artist Talk
at Villa Victoria Gallery, 85 W Newton St, Boston (South End)

The opening of the photo exhibit made the list last month, so it could be interesting to hear about trips to Cuba and hear about the Jewish community there.

THUR 2/11

Dr. Bruce Smith, "Where Our Food Comes From: The Origins of Agriculture"
at Geological Lecture Hall, Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford St, Cambridge (Harvard campus)

Tonight's speaker in the "Food for Thought" lecture series is the Curator of North American Archaeology at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, so he should know what he's talking about.

Moderated by Prof. Noel Michele Holbrook

THUR 2/11

Dave Linnenbank, "Berklee Sound Presentation"
at Berklee Recital Hall F12, 22 The Fenway, Boston (The Fens)

As part of "Together Boston", listen to words about and samples of electronic sound synthesis.

THUR 2/11

Quarry Authors & Editors, "The Art of Mystery Writing": Discussion
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

Do you think you can be a mystery writer? Pick up some tips from writers like Hank Phillippi Ryan, Susan Oleksiw, Nancy Means Wright, Vincent O Neil, Kate Flora, and Mike Wiecek.

Also at Concord Bookshop on SUN 2/21.

THUR 2/11

Double Feature: "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans" & "Bronson"
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Now this is what I'm in the mood for! A bizarre cop story from Werner Herzog & Nicolas Cage and an indie film based on real British psychopath who changed his name to Charles Bronson.

Two fine local film critics Peter Keough and Peg Aloi will respectively introduce the selections.

THUR 2/11

Leo Blais, John Shade, The Neave Quartet, Christoph Krey
at Arts at The Armory Cafe, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville (Spring Hill)

Singer-songwriters Leo Blais and John Shade are inviting different artists to join them every Thursday in February.

THUR 2/11

Electric Mummy (11pm), Beast Over Boston (10pm), Your Mother’s Crotch (9pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)

Mummified rockers, an Iron Maiden tribute, and a joke-rock band are raising funds for the New England Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
