WED 1/12: Early & Late Music

There was going to be a quite a few things happening on Wednesday. Most of them were canceled due to weather.

BTW: Do you need (or want) a replacement for your favorite winter coat?

They say Rescue Buy Sell Trade is having a 35% sale on coats & winter accessories through the end of the month (before they move to another location on Newbury St.

(I'm guessing they'll be open. Maybe call ahead.)

There's a Stuff Boston party on TUES 1/25 at Noche (South End). I think it may already be full, because the RSVP form doesn't have an active 'submit' button. (Maybe it'll work for you.)


WED 1/12

Nick Dinnerstein & Pei-Yeh Tsai: Schubert, Chopin, Etc
at Church of St. John the Evangelist, 35 Bowdoin St, Boston (Beacon Hill)

Cellist Nick Dinnerstein has played, studied, and performed in various settings around the world, and he also happens to read this site now and then. He and pianist Pei-Yeh Tsai will do works by Schubert, Chopin, and others.

As of Tuesday night, this is a go and will probably happen unless the T stops running.

I could see that a fun part of the blizzard could be getting plastered then going to a near-empty church to hear classical music.

WED 1/12 (and WED 1/19)

Rick Berlin w/ Nickel & Dime Band
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

By this time of night, we all should be comfortable with all of the snow on the ground; so the gig probably has a better than 50-50 chance of happening.

If anyone can make you feel good about going out to hear live music after a blizzard, it could be Rick Berlin and the Nickel & Dime Band. Rick Berlin's songs are so raw and visceral that you won't be sure if it's the booze or the lyrics that's causing the disorientation.

Berlin will be backed by Nickel & Dime Band who used to host the live-band karaoke at the old Milky Way (and have resumed at the new location). They might even let some people sing with them on this night.

They're scheduled to play next Wednesday too.
