SUN 3/14: Spoken Word, Rock, Blues

Happy Pi Day!

Aren't you glad you didn't stand out in the rain to watch the parade in Southie?

The grand opening of Papercut Zine Library takes place next month, but they're reopening in Somerville today (2pm to 7pm) after moving out of Harvard Square. It's not really as convenient as the old spot, but I'm sure they'd appreciate a visit.


SUN 3/14

4pm to 7pm
"Spoken Word Hangover": Duncan Wilder Johnson, Robby Potylo, Shawn Sixx
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$5 / 18+

The inaugural presentation of a monthly spoken-word series where the intense Duncan Wilder Johnson will usually be joined a comedic and non-comedic guest. Robby Roadsteamer is getting back to his roots and performing with his real name, and Shawn Sixx appears on Sports Hub 98.5.

SUN 3/14

Shore Leave, Air Traffic Controller, Mugison
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 18+

If you saw the Icelandic films on Thursday, this might be the last free thing for me to list on this "Taste of Iceland" festival. (I think there are other things going on in Framingham and beyond over the next couple days, but you might still be able to enter the free trip drawing.)

Mugison, "the Icelandic Beck", is joined by two local bands for some indie-prog-rock (Shore Leave) and powerpop (Air Traffic Controller). Hey, it's free...

Doors open at 8pm

SUN 3/14

Scout Niblett, Tiger Saw, sore eros
at Harpers Ferry, 158 Brighton Ave, Allston

I enjoy Scout Niblett's sparse loud-quiet dynamics, and Tiger Saw's folky-rocky chamber-pop will complement nicely. More coolness abounds with the splendid Northampton psych-noise of sore eros.

SUN 3/14

Jeremy Lyons Bright Moments
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

After Hurricane Katrina, Jeremy Lyons and his band moved to the Boston area. Jeremy has stuck around after the Deltabilly Boys moved on. He and his guitar have found many kindred spirits to play with including a couple ex-Morphine guys. Bright Moments is one of his projects where he does stuff like the old NOLA days with a "washtub" bassist and drummer. Good stuff!
