WED 9/29: Film, Word, Rock

Wow. I'm feeling really screwed up on the days of the week, but I think these short posts are helping me catch up for the weekend cheapness.

Did you RSVP for the free cocktails to be provided by Buick on Thursday yet?


WED 9/29

"The Yes Men Fix the World": Screening
at Mills Gallery, Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St, Boston (South End)

As part of the current exhibit of video works about Climate Change at the Mills Gallery (presented with the Goethe-Institut Boston), there are a couple film screenings like "The Yes Men Fix the World".

These activist pranksters blur the line of performance art, political protest, and satire. I still haven't seen the film, but I assume it's akin to an intellectual version of "Jackass".

Since the Goethe-Institut is hosting, a beautiful German short "They Will Come to Town" will also be shown. It's less than two minutes long, but it makes a lyrical statement about global warming.

WED 9/29

7:30pm to 10:30pm
"California Calling": A One-Man Show by Joe Sib
at Arts at The Armory, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville (Spring Hill)

More than a straightforward spoken word performance, Joe Sib (Wax, 22 Jacks, Sideonedummy Records) reminisces about growing up and discovering punk rock. Musical sets by Dave Hause (The Loved Ones), Sal Medrano (Dead Ellington) will open the show.

WED 9/29

Anarchy Club, Father Octopus, Death Of The Cool, Giant Target
at Harpers Ferry, 158 Brighton Ave, Allston
$7 / 18+

Most of these guys work at the company that has brought us games like "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band", so it's not too surprising that they like to make big, loud, grungy and semi-industrial rock on their own time.
