TUES 6/28: Draw, Laugh, Rock

Well, folks...

Trivia with Team CTB was a success -- in regards to the fun quotient and the score!

If there's any modest way to say it, I don't want to waste my time: We kicked ass in almost category.

A rag-tag tem of Trivia Ninjas (Trivi-ninjas? Ninj-ivias?) joined me at Club Oberon to finish with the highest score going into the "Lightning Round".

So I took the mantle to represent "The Log Ladies" on stage with the other top-3 finishers, and I couldn't ring in fast enough -- and I couldn't think of "Cougar Town".

So we tied for 2nd place, and everyone with at least something whether a book, DVD, a Cafe of India gift card or tix to "The Donkey Show". Thanks to Sophia, Mike, Jessica, and Raymond!

The next Big Quiz Thing at Oberon is MON 7/25.


TUES 6/28

7:30pm to 9:30pm
Dr. Sketchy Boston: Evening Session
at Club Cafe, 209 Columbus Ave, Boston (South End)

Feat: Walter Sickert's Bunny Collaborative

Whether it's the Sunday afternoon or Tuesday evening edition, I doubt there has ever been so much for the crowd to draw. If you've seen Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys, you may have also noticed a whole bunch of people non-musically performing and/or being arty.

Could there be a dozen models? Maybe more, probably less.

These are a couple of tips I copied from the Boston branch at some point:

Come on time to get a seat up front. Keep it small so others can crowd in around you. Bring your stuff in a milk crate so you have something to sit on or put your stuff on. (we have lots of seats, but more is helpful) There will be some fancy paper for you to buy if you want.
Even if there's too much for your art skills, it could be a creatively stimulating... No proficiency required -- just draw and have a good time.

TUES 6/28

Comedy Night
at Enormous Room, 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Feat: Lucas O'Neill, Corey Tenchara, Mike Abramson, Rob Crean, Laura Crawford, Sameer Naseem

Of the places where I occasionally suggest non-comedy-club comedy nights, the Enormous Room is probably the most comfortable (and the smallest).

There's a good chance for laughter with line-up. I think Lucas O'Neill is Lucas Lewis who I'll remember fondly for a hilarious townie character I saw one time.

Unlike Great Scott etc, the drinks wouldn't be described as cheap -- but it's free to get in.

TUES 6/28

Bomb The Music Industry!, Cheap Girls, The Fragments
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / All Ages

Kudos to Bomb the Music Industry: I read on the interwebs that they only play all-ages shows with covers of $10 or less. While I didn't want to just describe them as ska-punk because there's other stuff going on, but I'm tryin to keep it short.

They do seem to put on a good live show and have loyal fans.

It's punky fun all night with Fragments and Detroit's Cheap Girls.
