WED 4/6: Talk, Drama, Poetry, Music

Last week, I was almost relevant in providing weekend info before Friday.

I think it could happen this time, so I decided to write one-sentence descriptions to get the cheapness rolling ahead.

I was almost successful. Stay tuned...

Btw: I checked Big Quiz Thing out for a couple rounds last night, and it's a good time. The questions may be slightly harder than your average pub trivia, however I laughed more than usual. Good room, good crowd, good trivia -- and it's going to be free again at the end of May (Thanks, Tim Bear Surprise.)


WED 4/6

Jonathan Kozol: Lowell Lecture Series
at Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

A longtime education & social justice activist's first book about his early teaching experience was called "His Death at an Early Age"; his recent book was called "Letters to a Young Teacher".

WED 4/6

6pm to 9pm
Demo Camp Boston: "Top 10 Things Entrepreneurs Should Know"
at Hult Intl. Business School, 1 Education St, Cambridge (near Museum of Science)

Keynote Speaker: Brad Harkavy of Harkador Partners

For someone who wants to be their own boss -- hear about start-up successes, ask business questions, and network.

WED 4/6 (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.)

WED 4/6

Cantab Slam Team Preliminaries
at Cantab Underground, 738 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Central Sq & Harvard Sq)

If you didn't see the slam poetry competition on Friday, this should be almost as competitive with a shorter than usual open mic. Proceeds go to help run the National Poetry Slam that will be held in Boston this year.

WED 4/6

MV & EE w/ Mick Flower (11pm), Flower-Corsano Duo (10pm), MMOSS (9pm), Chris North Dream Quartet (8pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$8 / 18+

A mix of noise, psychedelia, and folkiness is going down tonight, and I think it's going to make sense as a whole.

WED 4/6

Shepherdess, The Great Buriers, Marissa Buschmohle
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE-ish / 21+

Some cool indie-rock and a autoharping singer-songwriter just for the heck of it. Maybe $5, but get there at least an hour early to get in for the price of your drinks.
