Sneak Peek: SAT 1/22

This is not the last you've heard from me! (I hope.)


SAT 1/22 (and SUN 1/23)

"The Wizard of Oz"
at Bright Screening Room, Paramount Theatre, 559 Washington St, Boston (Downtown Crossing)
$10 / $5 students

Have you ever seen it on the big screen?

(Also SUN 1/23 at 7pm)

SAT 1/22

Christian Lander, "Whiter Shades of Pale: The Stuff White People Like, Coast to Coast, from Seattle's Sweaters to Maine's Microbrews": Discussion
at Harvard Book Store, 1256 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Another book from the guy behind Stuff White People Like.

SAT 1/22

7pm to 10pm
Utah & Ether, "Probation Vacation": Book Release & Exhibition Reception
at Fourth Wall Project, 132 Brookline Ave, Boston (Fenway)

A pair of graffiti artists a limited edition photography book ($15) featuring 36 pages of their adventures and artwork. I think it will be more than just photos on display.

"Powered by PBR and Kupel's Bakery"

(Exhibition through SUN 1/30)

SAT 1/22

7pm to 10pm
Second Line Social Aid & Pleasure Society Brass Band (8pm), Emperor Norton Stationary Marching Band (9pm)
at VFW George Dilboy Post, 371 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$10 minimum / $20 suggested donation

Two of our awesome horn bands that regularly play HonkFest are heading to a Texas version, and this is a benefit to offset their expenses.

Think about how tough it can be for struggling musicians to travel around the country. Now imagine bands with a lot of people and big, bulky instruments.

SAT 1/22

2nd Annual Soozapalooza
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 Advance / $12 Day Of Show / 18+

Feat: Soozapalooza Supergroup, The Candles, Mistle Thrush, The Lights Out, Kristen Ford Band

MC: Baratunde Thurston

This will be a good time. I'm headed to get my tickets (box office open until 7pm).

SAT 1/22

The Pinball Millionaires, The Barleyhoppers, Easy Ed's Record Hop
at Midway Cafe, 3496 Washington St, Jamaica Plain
$10 / 21+

DJ Easy Ed throws another of his shindigs or a "Night of Rockabilly and Hillbilly Bop".

"Arrive early (8:30pm) for a free dance lesson (50s Jiving) with Miss Beck. No experience needed. No partner needed. Everyone welcome!"

Sponsored by Narragansett Brewing (sometimes this means a free drink ticket if you get there early enough...

SAT 1/22

Motherboar, Razors In The Night, Acaro, Livver
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$10 / 21+

Motherboar has a new album out, and it will be a kickass metal/punk party from beginning to end.

SAT 1/22

The Dirty Truckers, AM Stereo, BrownBoot
at Rosebud Bar & Grill (behind Diner), 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$5-ish / 21+

Every time The Dirty Truckers play, just add a little alcohol for a full-on Stonesy, twangy rockin' party. AM Stereo and BrownBoot will churn things up quite nicely.
