TUES 5/31: Party, Folk, Rock

So this is the cheap stuff tonight. Maybe people are expected to lie low after an action-packed long weekend.

There will probably be some comedians at the Enormous Room tonight around 9pm (Free), but I didn't find the details.


TUES 5/31

6pm to 9pm
Stuff Boston: Summer Fashion Issue Party
at Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles St, Boston (Beacon Hill)
FREE w/ RSVP / 21+

It looks like the RSVP is still open for a chance to wait in a line to get in for some complimentary Ketel One drinks and appetizers.

Kudos to Stuff for throwing these events for their new issues. I've been to a few of these, and it's not a bad stop after work.

TUES 5/31

Spider John Koerner
at Sally O'Brien's, 335 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)

You're not going to easily hear classic '60s folk music than when Spider John Koerner comes to town.

Koerner plays a fingerstyle blues and folk guitarist much in the same as when Bob Dylan bumped into him on the '60s folk club scene. Dylan even mentions being impressed in his memoir "Chronicles, Vol. 1".

TUES 5/31

Chandler Travis Philharmonic, The Catbirds
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$7 / 21+

The fifth and final Tuesday of the month brings an end to the CTP residency. Like I said last week, I suspect they'll be a scarce sight in Boston since the band's core spends summertime rocking the Beachcomber in Wellfleet.

Doesn't it feel like summer already? The basement-level lounge is dark and cool. The tunes will be mixed in a quirky, breezy musical cocktail.

The opener also features Philharmonic members in a heavier rock setting.
