TUES 7/12: Music, Science, Music

Keeping it brief today.

Wednesday stuff is on the calendar, and some cool stuff is happening on Thursday.


TUES 7/12

The E-Water Band
at Elma Lewis Playhouse, 143 Seaver St, Dorchester (Playstead/Franklin Park)

A funk/dance/jazz covers band (who does weddings, etc) opens the series of Tuesday night music & movies in Franklin Park through 8/19.

Whether you take the #16 bus or walk from Forest Hills or whatever, it should be easy to see the action when you get to the open green space.

TUES 7/12

7pm to 9pm
Science by the Pint: "Engineering Life: Learning from Models"
at Tavern on the Square, 1815 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

Read the event title again, because I doubt fashion models will be explaining about applying engineering to biology research.

Jim Collins and people from his BU Applied BioDynamics Lab will be there to discuss their work. If it sounds like a dry subject, these are the some of the people who are creating new drugs and energy sources.

(Bring some friends, so you won't be bored... Oh, there's a raffle at the end for a Tavern gift certificate.)

TUES 7/12

Bess Rogers, Allison Weiss, Ryan Harris Brown
at Cafe 939, 939 Boylston St, Boston (Back Bay)

The two Brooklynite singer-songwriters are quite good and have been growing on me. Ryan Harris Brown doesn't sound bad either.

TUES 7/12

The Wooden Birds, The Okay Win, Eldridge Rodriguez
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$9 / 18+

The band that's passing through town is The Wooden Birds who's fronted by the main guy from American Analog Set and has been involved with Broken Social Scene. Listen closely to their folky indie-rock because they don't play very loud -- and there's plenty of good things to hear.

Eldridge Rodriguez and The Okay Win will also be somewhere in quirky/rootsy territory.
