TUES 6/14: Loops 'n Roots

Okay, the Bruins just have to win one on the road tomorrow. The Pru expresses my sentiments...

Yeah. There is other cheap stuff happening tonight, but these would be my top two things to do.

I bet you can still RSVP for the Phoenix Music Awards party (see below)...


TUES 6/14

"Wobbles, Womps, and Wizardry with Ableton Live Suite 8"
at Berklee Media Lab, 150 Mass Ave, Boston (Back Bay)

Feat: Ben Cantil

While this is geared towards people that want to make music, it might be interested for the lay person who wonders, "How DO you make music with a computer program?"

This is a demo using a particular software that is geared towards being used in live performances. I've seen Ben Cantil fiddling with the laptop in-person, and he can get into it like a headbanger.

I assume Ben (who studied Electronic Production & Design at Berklee) will be somewhat subdued since he should be trying to be informative.

TUES 6/14

Nash Satterfield (7pm), The Blue Ribbons (10pm)
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

Whether you go early or late, there is some seriously interesting twangy music going on most Tuesdays at a great little spot to grab a beer even when there's no live music.

I think I've seen "Nash Satterfield" and thought it was some dude with an acoustic guitar. That's totally wrong.

It's a group. With a female singer. With a beautiful voice. And their stuff is a hopped-up, swingy alt-country that careens between the speakers. I could be wrong, but it seems that some of the regular band will be substituted by The Blue Ribbons.

Then they'll do their own fresh, wide-ranging yet rootsy rock thang almost until it's time for you to go home (or leave the bar)..
