WED 7/13: Music, Talk, Comedy

Again, keeping it brief in hopes of getting the weekend stuff up sooner.

(Lots of Thursday cheapness on calendar.)


WED 7/13

6pm to 9pm
at Children's Wharf Park, 300 Congress St, Boston (outside Boston Children's Museum/Fort Point)
FREE / 21+

Kids won't be welcome outside of the Children's Museum as Waitiki performs their loungey, Polynesian grooves known as exotica.

Drinks will be available including cocktails by Scott Marshall of the nearby Drink.

There are two more world-music concerts in this series for grown-ups on 8/3 ("Afro-funk/pop") and 8/17 ("Zydeco").

WED 7/13

Landmarks Orchestra, "Heavenly Mozart"
at Hatch Shell, Storrow Dr, Boston (Charles River Esplanade)

Program: "Magic Flute Overture", "Exsultate jubilate", "Mass in C Minor"

The New World Chorale joins the orchestra for some really wonderful music.

Some guy recently said something like, "People should love The Magic Flute in the same way people love a sunset," as if it's a basic part of humanity.

WED 7/13

Summer Dance Lecture Series: James Whiteside
at Seully Hall, 4th Fl, Boston Conservatory, 8 The Fenway, Boston (The Fens)

If I was interested in ballet, I'd like hear a principal dancer of Boston Ballet talk about dance and maybe ask him a question.

There's another dance talk tomorrow night too.

WED 7/13

Comedy at the LP
at The Lily Pad, 1353 Cambridge St, Cambridge (Inman Sq)

Feat: Laura Crawford, Sharkee Katz, Cam MacNeil, Sean Wilkinson, James Creelman, Will Noonan

I haven't noticed before that the Lily Pad hosts comedy on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays that intends to showcase New England and NY comics. It is really happening, because I was sent a Facebook link...

From the several names I recognize, you have a strong likelihood of laughing. They don't serve drinks, so budget some time to pound a couple pints at The Druid next door.

WED 7/13

Jeff Rowe, Dan Webb & The Spiders, Ghost Robot Ninja Bear, The Fake Boys
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$8 / 18+

It's mainly a night of punk and rock with loud guitars that might end with Jeff Rowe, his acoustic guitar, and his manly folky songs.

Gotta a give Rowe some kudos for touring Russia & Ukraine last month. There's a video of him on stage over there (and it looks loke some dudes are drinking tequila? to the side).
