SUN 12/19: Caroling, Rocking

Okay, folks. Either sing or be sung to for little to no money...

The Charles Hotel has some free festivities for the opening of their skating rink today, but it looks kinda small (and usually crowded) in my opinion.


SUN 12/19

Annual Caroling Mob
meet at Forest Hills T, about 3798 Washington St, Jamaica Plain

A bunch of festive souls walk around JP and sing holiday songs, and all singers of any size, shape, creed, or ability are welcome to join along. (They'll leave about 4:15pm.)

They suggest:

Bring candle lanterns (Lantern Parade lanterns work great), weather-appropriate clothing and gloves, festive hats and scarves, mugs for drinking Wassail, if you want to be green, and your good cheer.
When the time is right (cold and/or hunger), they'll hit a pub.

SUN 12/19

9pm to 11pm
Treat Her Right
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

Listen to some bluesy rock from a band that originally tore it up before Mark Sandman spread the Morphine sound around the world. They got back together about a year ago, and they're back at it every now and then with loads of slide guitar and harmonica -- including semi-regular gigs at Toad. Good stuff!

SUN 12/19

Sea Monsters
at Precinct, 70 Union Sq, Somerville (Union Sq)
$7-ish / 21+

Feat: Will Dailey

I didn't write about this gig very often in the past, because I though these guys would rock every Sunday night ad infinitum. Unfortunately, good things do come to a (hopefully) temporary end.

This gig was the brainchild of Christian McNeill and Jesse Dee who are doing quite well on their individual projects. They've formed a loose rootsy/soulful party with horns various guests and adoring fans for about 3 years, and they're planning on taking a break to record next year.

Tonight's guest is the awesome singer-songwriter Will Dailey, so I may have to go!
