Sneak Peek: SAT 8/28

Boston Caribbean Carnival Parade
Enjoy the weather, friends.

I didn't find much non-musical cheapness for Sunday -- besides St. Anthony's Feast (that's also Friday & Saturday) in the North End. [shrug]


SAT 8/28

Noon to 7pm
Boston Caribbean Carnival Parade
from MLK Blvd & Warren St, Roxbury
to Peabody Circle
, about 675 Blue Hill Ave, Dorchester (Franklin Park)

What more do you want from a parade than colorful costumes and music?

SAT 8/28

5pm to 8pm
at Union Sq Plaza, Somerville (nexus of Somerville Ave, Washington St, Bow St)

Feat: Radio Jarocho, La Tuza

"Celebrating Mexican Son Jarocho Music and Dance"

SAT 8/28

6pm to 8pm
"In a State of Glory": Poetry Reading [Facebook]
at Outpost 186, 186 1/2 Hampshire St, Cambridge (Inman Sq)
$10 or b/o

Feat: Julie Doxsee, Sarah Goldstein, Janaka Stucky, Brian Foley

If you're on the fence about attending, there should be some free wine...

SAT 8/28 (and SUN 8/29)

"Films at the Gate": Night #3
at Vacant Lot near Chinatown Gate, about 10 Hudson St, Boston (Chinatown)

7:15pm -- Tai Chi demonstration by Bow Sim Mark Tai Chi Arts Association
8pm -- "Havoc in Heaven"
All of the movies will be screened al fresco in Chinatown with the original Chinese audio (and English subtitles).

Also SUN 8/29
8pm -- "Children of Invention"
Note: Saturday and Sunday's shows are at Chinatown Park on the Kennedy Greenway (on the other side of the Gate).

There are some folding chairs, but you're encouraged to bring your own seat if you really want it.

If you're hungry, there are plenty restaurants in the neighborhood to pick something up...

SAT 8/28

Old Jack, Brendan Boogie, The Charms
at Rosebud Bar & Grill (behind Diner), 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$5 / 21+

Tremendous rock/powerpop punch

SAT 8/28

Juston Stens & The Get Real Gang, John Shade
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+

Juston Stens used to be in Dr. Dog, and John Shade is brilliant.
