WED 6/15: Huh, All Free Except for One

This is the last month of Anna's Taqueria's 15th anniversary celebration, and it looks like people can grab a free iced coffee even if they don't want anything else. (But you want a burrito, don't you?)

There are a couple things happening tomorrow that you might want to RSVP; they're on the calendar.

Go Bruins!!!


WED 6/15

5pm to 8pm
"Summer Evenings"
at Concord Museum, 53 Cambridge Turnpike, Concord

Have you ever thought about visiting the Concord Museum and its trove of Americana art? Did you know the Concord Museum was even there?

If you keep going on Route 2, it's there in Concord. It's free to get in tonight as well as 2 other Wednesdays in July and August (7/20 and 8/17).

This is a little out of my usual range, but it might be a nice stop if you feel like going for a ride...

WED 6/15

"Mighty Uke": Screening & Discussion/Clinic
at Berklee Media Lab, 150 Mass Ave, Boston (Back Bay)

Feat: Tim Mann

Watch a documentary about the ukulele's resurgence, then get a little talk demonstration.

WED 6/15

6pm to 8pm
Beto Torrens, "RompeStereotipos": Artist Talk
at Villa Victoria, 85 W Newton St, Boston (South End)

Puerto Rican artist Beto Torrens will discuss his exhibit examines stereotypes with sound+vision installations.

If you arrive thirsty, "Refreshments will be served."

WED 6/15

7pm to 9pm
Science in the News: "The War on Cancer: Where we are in the battle, and why we haven't won."
at Pfizer Auditorium Hall, Mallinckrodt Bldg, 12 Oxford St, Cambridge (Harvard campus)

In other parts of the country, people probably wish they can get into Harvard. For us, we can attend free lectures from world class researchers.

Out of the series, this was the one I really wanted to hear. This is the question I ask about every disease that hasn't been cured since we beat polio last century!

WED 6/15

Boston Phoenix "Best Music Poll" Awards Party
at Brighton Music Hall, 158 Brighton Ave, Allston
FREE with RSVP / 21+

Feat: Bodega Girls, Freezepop, Moe Pope, Mean Creek

Show at 8pm -- First come, first served.

There is still some time to RSVP, but they're expecting a more-than-capacity crowd.

(Hey, I even tried to tell you about this in advance...)

WED 6/15

"Woman. Bicycle.": Staged Reading
at The Factory Theatre, 791 Tremont St, Boston (South End)

The two words make me think of the feminist saying (and later U2 lyric). There's a brief description of the play; maybe it's enough for you to attend and join the conversation afterwards.

"Tickets are free but seating is limited. Reservations recommended."

Oh, and: "The entrance is through the parking lot on Northampton St, between Tremont and Columbus."

WED 6/15

Brian Carpenter & The Confessions (10:30pm), Guillermo Sexo (9:30pm), Mr Sister (8:30pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$8 advance / $10 day of show / 18+

I remember expressing preference for Night #1 of MySecretBoston's shows at Church, but this one is really damn good too.

If you like Beat Circus, you should dig singer-songwriter Brian Carpenter's new project even though it's a bit of a detour. Both Guillermo Sexo and Mr Sister create dark, mysterious music -- one is loud, and one is not so much.
