SUN 5/16: Music

One doesn't need much more than going outside to enjoy the lovely day, although it doesn't hurt to add something extra to the agenda.

Birds & Bards Festival concludes today with stuff at Forest Hills Cemetery and Boston Nature Center.


SUN 5/16

"School of Rock for Haiti": Benefit for Partners in Health
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 minimum donation / $5 minimum for students / All Ages

Feat: The Vivs, The Specific Heats, Shai Ehrlichman, Coolie Pool, 43 Pies, Ill Mostra, Good Bread, Skunk Neighborhood, George Washington Quartet

The Vivs rock. The Specific Heats are pretty damn cool. Shai Ehrlichman could be a genius of song. That's more than enough reason to help Haiti, which also includes several Brookline High School bands.

SUN 5/16

Band Of Horses: Performance & Signing
at Newbury Comics, 332 Newbury Street, Boston (Back Bay)

* Purchase their new CD, Infinite Arms, at the Newbury St. store on Sunday, 5/16 and get a wristband for entrance to the event.
You B.o.H. fans have already heard the new album, and now you get an extra bonus if you buy the CD today at the Back Bay store. I'm guessing it's one entry per purchase... (I know, I think it sucks that you have to buy the CD too.)

SUN 5/16

Treat Her Right
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

If I list this again, I'll write a new description:

Jim Fitting and David Champagne, along with the great Mark Sandman, had a rocking outfit about 20 years ago called Treat Her Right. Billy Conway was the drummer, but he lives in Montana these days. They had a bluesy flair and solid songwriting.

Why not revive the old tunes after the Sandman tribute concert in September? A bunch of seasoned guys fill out the band for an evening of great fun.
