TUES 2/15: Talk, Film, Rock

It's the 15th of the month, and Anna's Taqueria is giving out a freebie to their customers in celebration of their 15th anniversary. If you buy a burrito, taco, quesadilla or a 'plate'; you'll get free chips & guacamole today.

Maybe next month's giveaway will be an "Et tu" Caesar salad...


TUES 2/15

Wendy Kopp, "A Chance to Make History": Discussion
at Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

With, Director of Center for Public Leadership at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and CNN Senior Political Analyst

Hats off to Wendy Kopp for conceiving of the Teach for America program as her senior thesis in 1989, and over the subsequent decades there have been thousands who spend 2 years teaching in low-income communities to improve 'educational equity' in the country.

If you want to hear some ideas about improving our educational system, it would behoove you to hear Kopp speak to David Gergen about her new book. (Her proceeds from book sales will sponsor TFA corps members in urban and rural communities).

There is a chance to RSVP, but it doesn't guarantee a seat. Maybe you get priority access when the doors open at 5:15 pm.

TUES 2/15

"Mystic River": Screening
at The Modern Theatre, 525 Washington St, Boston (Downtown Crossing)

Although "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" is the granddaddy of Boston crime novels, novelist Dennis Lehane has created an impressive oeuvre by taking trips to the dark underbelly around us.

I missed "Gone Baby Gone" last night, but there are still a few nights in this Lehane retrospective -- including "Shutter Island" tomorrow and an "Evening with Dennis Lehane" on THUR 2/17.

TUES 2/15

"The Crushers Take the E-Room"
at Enormous Room, 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

This kind of extravaganza actually deserves an enormous room, but the Enormous Room will have to do...

Awesome local music blog Boston Band Crush is thowing one helluva party that includes the 'world premiere' of the "One Night Band 2010" video.

Some of the participants will reunite for live acoustic sets: the trio of ladies from 10 Hours of Chaos, a couple of Voltron ForceFlex (so no full Voltron power?) who'll be joined by Sidewalk Driver's Tad Mckitterick, and a few players from I Like Your Leather. Of course, the DJ will play local tuneage and audio from One Night Band.

For all you lovers of free stuff, there will be a chance to win (I assume?) giveaways like free tickets to several cool shows in the next couple months, a Boston Band Crush t-shirt, and maybe a kiss from BBC dude Richard Bouchard...


Want to see something creepy look at the full-size image of the flyer. (Those are human eyes on the Muppets!)
