No offense to the people below, but it feels like a pretty thin day for cheap fun.
Someone asked me what is happening on Friday 4/1, so I hope to have a weekend post of some kind later today.
TUES 3/29 (thru THUR 3/31)
13th Annual Boston Underground Film Festival
at Kendall Square Cinema, One Kendall Square, Cambridge
$10 / $8 w/ student ID
Boston hosts a handful of independent/underground film festivals. BUFF offers some movies that are on the cusp of art-house cinema distribution and some that are just too far out. I've seen some shorts and trailers in the past, and there's a lot of good filmmaking even if the production values aren't as slick as you're accustomed to.
3:30pm -- "CineMental Gets BUFF"Take a chance on shorts program, a set of music videos from local artists and beyond, and a handful of feature-lengths.
5:30pm -- "Where the Music’s At"
5:45pm -- "Lucid Dreaming"
7:15pm -- "The Corridor"
7:30pm -- "Chop"
9:30pm -- "Helldriver"
9:45pm -- "Profane"
The Brothers O'Reely (7pm), The Blue Ribbons (10pm)
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)
FREE / 21+
Two top-notch singer-songwriters, Ryan Fitzsimmons & Greg Klyma, get together as The Brothers O'Reely in March for a month of St Paddy's Day celebration. This last Toad gig of the month shopuld include a mix of their own material as well as a few Irish tunes.
The Blue Ribbons will satisfy your late-night Americana cravings.
"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"
at Zack Box Theatre, Downstairs, 8 The Fenway, Boston (Boston Conservatory)
I think a group of college students came to my elementary school and performed this musical based on the Peanuts gang, and I recall enjoing it.
It's hard to say what to expect from this student production other than the hero will still be a lovable sadsack.
at Enormous Room, 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
This monthly gig usually seems to have skimpy details. I did notice that comedian Matt D. listed it on his website, so there's a strong chance that people will be telling jokes. Hey, there is comfortable seating and no cover charge.
