THUR 9/2: Art, Film, Talk, Rock

Just passing this along:
An Australian musical, road-comedy centered around an Aboriginal couple called "Bran Nue Dae" is opening at Kendall Square Cinema next week.

There's a preview screening on WED 9/8. If you send them an email by noon tomorrow (9/3), you might get one of those "admit-two" passes that doesn't guarantee entry.


THUR 9/2

7pm to 9pm
"Boston Related": Closing Reception
at Fourth Wall Project, 132 Brookline Ave, Boston (Fenway)

Feat: Antoniadis and Stone, Raul Gonzalez, Jessica Gath, Alone, Jason Reppert, Nicole Stone, Jesse Littlefield, Matthew Rich, Janos Stone, Miles Huston, Fredo Conde, David Ording

There aren't any links about the closing reception, but I received an email from the Fourth Wall Project.

You can check out a "survey of contemporary Boston art", and there is supposed to be a performance piece by one of the exhibiting artists, Jessica Gath.

"Refreshments provided by Narragansett."

THUR 9/2

Double Feature:
"There Will Be Blood" (7pm), "No Country for Old Men" (10pm)
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

These are two heavy films, but they're also quite long.

At 158 and 122 minutes running time, that's almost 5 hours of air-conditioned cinema.

THUR 9/2

Alan Khazei, "Big Citizenship: How Pragmatic Idealism Can Bring out the Best in America"
at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St, Brookline (Coolidge Corner)

I try not think about it much, but I occasionally ponder that anyone could've run a better campaign than Martha Coakley and squeaked by Scott Brown -- even Alan Khazei.

In this new book, the co-founder of City Year advocates for a deeper commitment to public service and social action as well as adding stories about growing up in New Hampshire.

THUR 9/2

Jason Bennett & The Resistance (11:45pm), Razors In The Night (10:45pm), Kickstarts (9:50pm), The Scars (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Before Jason Bennett & The Resistance and Razors In The Night take a musical jaunt down the coast, they're playing a hometown show with different shades of punktastic goodness. Where JB&TR take a more earthy route, RITN pummels you especially with the growly vocals from their forceful frontman. You could say Kickstarts and The Scars fall somewhere in between.

THUR 9/2

Dennis Brennan Quatro (10pm), Paul Janovitz (9pm)
at Atwoods Tavern, 877 Cambridge St, Cambridge (near Inman & Kendall Sq)
$5 / 21+

The masterful Dennis Brennan regularly rocks crowds out into a zone of rootsy paradise. Singer-songwriter Paul Janovitz (of the incredibly talented Janovitz brothers) may be playing solo, but does play with members of Brennan's band too.

As seen on his photography site, Janovitz took the above picture of Brennan...
