MON 4/11: Film, Talk, Music, Theater

Okay, it's another abridged post.


MON 4/11

"Precious": Screening
at Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

It's an intense story; life can be intense. Precious doesn't have any advantages in life, and most days are not uplifting.

Of course, watching in a library basement will help with the gritty vibe.

MON 4/11

Steven Schlozman, "The Zombie Autopsies": Reading
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

As a doctor, Steven C. Schlozman was able to write a novel that makes a realistic case for zombies -- and that sounds scary.

MON 4/11

NEC Philharmonia with David Lockington
at Jordan Hall, 30 Gainsborough St, Boston (New England Conservatory/Fenway)


Liszt, "Piano Concerto No.1, S.124, E-flat major"
Wagner, "Orchestral Excerpts from The Ring of the Niebelungen"
Liszt is all over the place since he was born 200 years ago this year. The Philharmonia with guest conductor David Lockington will also play quite a few chunks of Wagner's epic opus.

MON 4/11

"The Last Will": Staged Reading
at The Modern Theatre, 525 Washington St, Boston (Downtown Crossing)

This is the third in playwright Robert Brustein’s trilogy of plays about Shakespeare. It's been mentioned that Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham would be participating since he's in town for a production of "The Merchant of Venice", but it'll be the same play if he isn't there.

"This event is free; however tickets are required."

MON 4/11

Overnight Lows, Tampoffs, Puppy Mill
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

It's Monday night, so punk rock is blasting away at Charlies. Nothing fancy tonight especially Overnight Lows who are touring from Tennessee.

MON 4/11

Brian Gordon Art Opening w/ Streight Angular
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

The guy who designed the current cover of the Weekly Dig will have some of his collages up at Zuzu, and Streight Angular will play a set.
