Sneak Peek: SAT 3/6

I put this gig on the calendar, because it was ostensibly $10 for advance tickets, but advance tix are sold out. The Lizard Lounge saves some tickets for when the doors open 8:30pm, if you want to try getting in. (I'll likely try...)

at Cheverus Room, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

This is a chance to view "The Raven in the Frog Pond" with Prof. Paul Lewis (American Lit, BC), Boston's preeminent Poe scholar and the curator of the exhibit that includes rare manuscripts, letters, etc that focuses on his Boston years.

SAT 3/6

Exhibit through SAT 3/20. Check out the Fourth Wall Project while you can, since it's a project to use an empty storefronts for creative purposes until they're commercially occupied. (On second thought, there is no rush...)
