THUR 4/7: Talk, Drama, Film, Rock

Like Wednesday, this is another (mostly) one-sentence version to get weekend cheapness together in a timely manner.

If you want to try seeing "Hanna" at the Regal Fenway, print a PDF pass for two (doesn't guarantee entry).


THUR 4/7

6:30pm to 8pm
"Weather at War": Discussion
at C. Walsh Theater, Suffolk University, 55 Temple St, Boston (Beacon Hill)

Panel: Dr. Rachel Kleinfeld, Carl Ferenbach, Harold Naughton, Jack Wrobel

Let's not argue about what's causing climate change. Let's consider that food supplies and coastal real estate will be in jeopardy -- we need to think about this as a national security issue.

Registration requested.

I think that the Ashley Judd appearance on Friday might be more appealing...

THUR 4/7(thru SAT 4/9)

"Rabbit Hole"
at Loeb Drama Center, Experimental Theatre, 64 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

The movie with Nicole Kidman movie was originally a play about grief and how it isn't 24/7 sadness.

Send an email to reserve free tickets. (I assume you should include your name, date, and number of tix.)

THUR 4/7

"Birth of a Party": World Premiere
at Kendall Square Cinema, One Kendall Square, Cambridge

It's hard to figure out how much of this documentary is performance. The subtitle is "Booze, Pot & Tea Party Politics in the Big Easy." I think Jesse Haskell and the other delegates are in on the joke, but they probably did engage real teabaggers at the convention in New Orleans.

Watch the trailer... If you go, the film folks are going to Tommy Doyle's after the screening.

THUR 4/7

Rock n' Roll Rumble Preliminaries: Night #4
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Feat: The Acro-Brats (11:45pm), Mellow Bravo (11pm), Static Of The Gods (10:15pm), Triple Thick (9:30pm)

Dang, I don't have a good guess who will win this Rumble preliminary.

Triple Thick is a fun shambles of garage goodness, Mello Bravo channels rock glory, The Acro-Brats punk out with a good attitude, but I'm picking Static Of The Gods for having cool songs and the whole package with a contemporary wrapping. Anything can happen...

Check out Boston Band Crush's coverage of this year's participants including a 24-song sampler from Rumblers.
