SUN 5/29: Campfire, Chapel, Rock-Talk, Rock-Rock

If you feel like going to Marshfield Fairgrounds, there is a Native American Spring Planting Pow-Wow ($5 / $2 ages 4 to 12) from 11am to 6pm.

As for tomorrow, there's a MFA Open House and trivia and more to come...


SUN 5/29 (and MON 5/30)

Noon to Midnight
"Campfire Festival"
at Club Passim, 47 Palmer St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$10 per day

Sure, you can pass an acoustic guitar around a real campfire. You know someone is going to butcher a Tom Petty (or Eagles or Sublime or whatever).

My guess is that you won't hear a Petty cover all weekend, but there will be wall-to-wall folky goodness for the next 4 days -- as well as some folks that'll be more rocky, bluesy, or left-of-center in one way or another.

Sunday schedule:

Noon -- This Frontier Needs Heroes
1pm -- Michaela Anne, Haley Shaw, Amy Reagan
2:15pm -- só sol
3pm -- Megan Lui, Jenna Nicholls, Haroula Rose
4:15pm -- Sweet Soubrette
5pm -- The Capitalist Youth
6pm -- Chris North, Kate Klim, Dietrich Strause, Rhianna LaRocque
7:30pm -- Alex Wong
8:15pm -- Abbie Gardner
9pm -- Chris O'Brien, Julia Easterlin, Courtney Brocks, Melissa Czarnik
10:45pm -- Sarah Levecque, Erin Harpe, Josh Buckley, Peter Squires
Between you and me, I think today and tomorrow are the most interesting lineups of the weekend.

SUN 5/29

1pm to 4pm
Bigelow Chapel Open House
at Mount Auburn Cemetery, 580 Mt Auburn St, Cambridge

On a trip to the cemetery, the door to the chapel was open and I snapped a photo. If you've been there and wanted to take a look around, today is your chance (or on 7/31 and 9/25).

SUN 5/29

"This Has Been A Disaster - Thanks For Having Us": Discussion & Performance
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

Feat: Marissa Nadler, Matt Parish, Steve Mayone, Mr Sister

I have a feeling the place is going to be packed for the inaugural edition of a monthly series that will have author Steve Almond and Hallelujah The Hills frontman Ryan Walsh talk to musicians about musical horror stories.

Mr Sister will play afterwards, and hopefully everything will go well...

SUN 5/29

The Honors
at Hennessey's, 25 Union St, Boston

According to the calendar, The Honors are going be there tonight. No guarantees...

I will say if they are playing, you should hear some ridiculously catchy and rock with style.

SUN 5/29

Sea Monsters (10pm), Brothers McCann (9pm)
at Precinct, 70 Union Sq, Somerville (Union Sq)

For about 3 years, Christian McNeill and Jesse Dee made Sunday nights something to almost look forward to with a regular gig at Precinct.

Making good on their pledge to play on 3-day weekend Sundays, the guys are celebrating the release of a 7" single that is a golden rock 'n soul nugget that'll have yearning for more.

As usual, the band and horn section gets bigger with plenty of guests such as Nicole Nelson & Tim Gearan.

Brothers McCann open with an acoustic, but you may want to show up early. I have a feeling this could be a packed house too.
