WED 6/16: Peace Corps, Beer, Prince, Rock

Okay, let's try this one more time...

Go, Celtics!


WED 6/16

Noon to 1pm
Information Meeting
at Regional Peace Corps Office, Suite 559, 10 Causeway Street, Boston (North Station)

Information Meeting
at O'Neill Federal Bldg Auditorium, First Floor, 10 Causeway Street, Boston (North Station)

A free trip to a strange land... Looks cool on a resume...

It can be hard work, but volunteering in a foreign country would be an amazing adventure. It's like a 27-month, all expenses paid trip overseas where you're going to make a difference in the world.

Stop by during the day to watch a video and/or talk to a recruiter. There's also an evening session where you can hear Peace Corps volunteers talk about their experiences.

Perhaps it's time to try something new. Apparently you don't have to be young or speak a foreign language to join up. Is your job really better than teaching kids in Guyana for a couple years?

RSVP required for the evening session via email or at 617-565-5555. Include your name & phone number or email address.

WED 6/16 & THUR 6/17

7:30pm to 9pm
Open House / Tour
at Harpoon Brewery, 306 Northern Avenue, Boston (Seaport)
FREE / 21+

On previous visits to the Harpoon Brewery, the "tour" consisted of a tasting session, a presentation, and another tasting session. There's nothing wrong with that, but the brewery is right behind you.

On the next two days, it sounds like beer-lovers will be able to walk through the glass doors onto the brewing floor too. It's free and beery. There's plenty of other Boston Beer Week happenings tonight and beyond; this is my cheap pick.

WED 6/16

9pm to 10:30pm
Soular Wednesdays: Prince Tribute
at Milky Way Lounge/Bella Luna, 284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain (The Brewery Complex)

Every year around Prince's birthday (June 7), the Soulkore crew puts together a celebration of the Purple One. It's happening on their biweekly night at the Milky Way where DJ Nomadik & Bigg Nez host music and comedy.

Live performances of Prince material (along with their own material) by Allyssa Jones, Troy Durden, April Stanford.

If your ever going to wear those ass-less pants, tonight's the night...

WED 6/16

Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Jeff the Brotherhood, Viva Viva, Thick Shakes
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston

Quintron and Miss Pussycat bring the party like no others. You may have heard some wild, funky '60s, organ-driven dance-rock before. You may have seen a bizarre puppet show before. You will never-ever see them put together like Q (with the coolest keyboard setup) and Miss P in one of the most energetic shows, period! If they were the only performers, this would still be a deal at $10.

They don't play Boston very often, so I'm surprised it hasn't sold out yet. If you can get in, two of our most rockingest local bands Viva Viva and Thick Shakes are playing as well as the musical hurricane that is Nashville guitar-drums duo Jeff the Brotherhood

WED 6/16

The Goodnight Loving
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Another nice option is The Goodnight Loving from Milwaukee. Looks like there's no opener -- hopefully just an extra-long set of tasty, folky, classic-pop garage-rock.
