SUN 2/27: Art, Cookies, Rock

Looks like it snowed just enough the cover the dirty stuff...


SUN 2/27

11am to 4pm
Family Day
at Bakalar & Paine Galleries, South Hall, MassArt, about 621 Huntington Ave, Boston (The Fens)

Does a young person you know still want to have more fun before the vacation is over? You can take them to MassArt for some art and activities (materials & refreshments provided).

They note: "Please be advised that astatic contains some graphic content that may not be suitable for younger audiences."

So it's a 'bring the kids and don't let them look at the walls' situation...

SUN 2/27

The Cookie Takedown
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$10 / 18+

There are prizes and prestige at stake for the cookie-meisters. I don't know how many competitors will be there, but it's supposed to be a full roster.

There's probably a couple dozens to eat for the admission. Go early before anyone runs out, then vote for your fave.

Milk will be for sale, but beer goes great with raspberry almond chocolate peanut butter turtles -- or whatever...

Warning: These events do sell out.

SUN 2/27

SXSW Boston Preview
at Brighton Music Hall
$7 advance

Feat: : Static of the Gods, Endless Wave, Mean Creek, Mystery Roar, The Dirty Dishes, Viva Viva, Banditas, more

For those of us who aren't going to SXSW, this is a chance to experience a scheduled Boston showcase a few weeks in adavance. You don't need to be reminded that there's an array of bitchin' bands in town, but enjoy the variety.

I bet the Converse store on Newbury Street doesn't have anymore free tickets for this gig, but it looks like advance tix are still available.
