Well, I really screwed up the weekend listings. Oops...
My understanding is that Titus Andronicus/The Babies/Hallelujah The Hills at Great Scott is sold out, but maybe someone will have an extra ticket to sell outside. It's a gamn good $10 show.
Monday nights are live music nights at Charlies Kitchen and Zuzu. It's a chance to start the week with cheap music whether you want it loud or quiet.
While I was not a huge fan of The Wedding Present, they are playing the entirety of their '89 album "Bizarro" at the Middle East (downstairs) for a couple dollars over $10. They're joined by Girl In A Coma and The Motion Sick.
Paul Verhoeven, "Jesus of Nazareth": Discussion
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
It surprises me that the director of "Basic Instinct", "Showgirls", and "Starship Troopers" has written a scholarly book about Jesus from a historical point of view.
At 8pm, Verhoeven will introduce one of his classics "RoboCop". You can see both for a combo ticket of $12 / $10 for students, seniors.
"Copies of Jesus of Nazareth will be available for sale at the reading."
David Sax, "Save the Deli": Discussion
at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St, Brookline (Coolidge Corner)
Delicatessens are awesome places for sandwiches, potato salad, etc; and no one makes a thick pastrami sandwich like a Jewish deli. Do we need a book to exhort the survival of the deli? Maybe we do. There will be some samples from Zaftigs to persuade you.
at Room 105, Bldg 2, 182 Memorial Dr, Cambridge (MIT campus)
James Whale's 1931 version kicks off a week of Frankenstein films, a play, and a discussion including: "The Bride of Frankenstein" (TUES 4/13) and "Young Frankenstein" (WED 4/14).
Molly & Jamie, Karen Barnicle, Lindsey Starr
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+
Molly from Banditas and Jamie from Wonderful Spells for a trio of likely acoustic performances.
The Cold Beat, Wallcreeper, The Young Leaves
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+
The Cold Beat is a lean, mean rock machine that has some good songs that get a loud, fast approach that makes many mention The Replacements; and I can hear it a bit. The Young Leaves mention their influences (Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr, Archers of Loaf, Superchunk, etc) and each of them get opportnities to shine through from song to song.
