THUR 12/16: A Little Talk. More Rock

So a confluence of crap has delivered today's post later than its usual tardiness -- and in an abridged format.

Note: Friday cheapness is already on the CTB calendar.


THUR 12/16

6:30pm to 7:30pm
Ilan Stavans & Henry Louis Gates Jr, "The Culture Wars and the Canon": Conversation
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Ilan Stavans is a Latin-American scholar at Amherst. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is an African-American scholar at Harvard. Tonight they talk about Latino- and African- American relationships in America.

Tickets available through Cambridge Center for Adult Education.

THUR 12/16

"Mondo Thursdays": Mele Kalikimaka Party
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$5 / 21+

Feat: Tired Old Bones (Midnight), Peter Moore (11:15pm), Jessica Sun Lee (10:30pm), Danielle Lessard (9:45pm)

Thursdays have become "Mondo Thursdays" at the Plough, and they're starting a bit earlier this week for a Polynesian-themed holiday party with an eclectic mix of loud and quiet musical acts.

The food is good, and there will be some island-inspired special dishes tonight.

THUR 12/16

Jason Bennett & The Resistance (Midnight), The Dirty Truckers (11pm), Full Body Anchor (10pm), Brittany Gray (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Can you believe "The Noise" magazine has been around for 30 years? Kudos to anyone that does anything for 30 years. (I think I've been doing something like this for about five...)

This anniversary celebration is rocking from beginning to end!

THUR 12/16

Filligar, The Honors
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / All Ages

These are two excellent specimens of poppy indie-rock. I prefer The Honors, so that probably means Filligar will be hugely famous...

A portion of the proceeds of this show will go to Partners in Health.

Doors open at 8pm

THUR 12/16

Viva Viva, Pray For Polanski, Cat Whisker
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$8 / 18+

Sleepover Shows is a site that features their quirky videos of exclusive performances by bands, and they've started to organize shows outside of their living room. Holy cow, this is a strong line-up.

THUR 12/16

Naked On Roller Skates (11pm), Angeline (10pm), Lady Lamb The Beekeeper (9pm)
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$8 / 21+

This is going to be a full house for having three excellent folky/rocky outfits with mucha girl power. And maybe Lady Lamb The Beekeeper has local momentum as a talented singer-songwriter who was a favorite of Billy Ruane before he exited the mortal coil.
