THUR 4/21: Godzilla, Comedy, Music

If you're near City Hall Plaza around 1:30pm, there's a good chance you can get a free Boloco burrito to hear Mayor Menino make an announcement about a bike-sharing program.

Better than a kick in the head!


THUR 4/21

"Godzilla" in Japan and the World: Screening & Discussion
at Room 906, Photonics Center, 8 Saint Mary's St, Boston (BU campus)

The original Japanese film supposedly has a deeper anti-nuclear message, and I'm not sure if I've ever seen it.

Improve your film cred and hear a presentation from historian Gregory Pflugfelder (Columbia) who is writing a book on "Godzilla" around the world.

THUR 4/21

8pm to 10pm
Comedy Mixtape
at Arts at the Armory Cafe, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville (Spring Hill)
$5 / 18+

Feat: Mike Abramson, Niraj Shah, Jacob Simon, Max Fox, Sean Wilkinson, Ken Reid, Shawn Carter, Al Park

There's a new monthly comedy night (every third Thursday) hosted by Dan Burgess inside the strange white building of Highland Ave (FYI: #88 or #90). I recognize several of these names, and there should be many funny things said.

If I'm correct, beer and wine should be available -- because they loosen your laugh muscle...

THUR 4/21

Girls Rock Camp: Volunteer Mixer & Benefit
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / 18+

Feat: Sister Spaceman (8pm), Apple Betty (8:20pm), Banditas (8:40pm), Bunny's A Swine (9pm), Carolyn Castellano & Sandy Z (9:20pm), Cathy Cathodic (9:40pm), Mary Lou Lord (10pm), The Nose Jobs (10:20pm), Pinecone Teeth (10:40pm), Scarce (11pm), Shepherdess (11:20pm), Ajda and Tony (11:40pm), Aerochix (Midnight)

You don't have to volunteer to show up, hang out, and listen to the tunes. On the other hand, you may want to help by the end of the night after hearing lots of women rock to support future generations.

Remind yourself that being there and paying the cover is helping.

THUR 4/21

Bury Me Standing: Residency w/ Sweet Soubrette, Now You
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+

At the core of Bury Me Standing, one finds the drummer from Humanwine and the marimba player from Goli who forge their own dark, strange, psychedelic Balkan music. They did a previous residency at Lizard Lounge in October; you can either be surprised when you go or take a video glimpse.

Different guests have been opening each week, and there are a couple goodies tonight with Sweet Soubrette's folk-rock-with-ukulele and violin-percussion duo Now You.
