WED 8/17: Art, Film, Stories

There's two performance art events on a hump day? While one seems more "serious" than the other, you could so.

By the way, there's a lot of cheap fun happening tomorrow including something in Lynn...


WED 8/17

6pm to 8pm
Yassy Goldie & Bru Jø, "Close Distance": Performance Art
at Mills Gallery, Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St, Boston (South End)

The "Close Distance" exhibit (through SUN 8/28) presents pieces in various media by Boston-area Latino artists that includes: Daniela Rivera, Raúl González III w/ La Die, María Guest w/ Rafael Rondeau, Anabel Vázquez Rodríguez, Vela Phelan, Ricardo De Lima, and Dave Ortega.

Yassy Goldie and Bru Jø are contributing performance art to the fiesta. Since the exhibit intends to explore the impact of the artists' "place of origin" with their current situation, these two will "touch on the construction of cultural identity."

I can tell you that they've performed together before, and it looks like fire was involved.

WED 8/17

7pm to 9pm
Logan Faerber: Live Art w/ Bombay Sapphire
at Globe Bar & Cafe, 565 Boylston St, Boston (Back Bay)
FREE / 21+

So Bombay Sapphire is sponsoring art competitions and the like such as this events where Logan Faerber is going to create something while people watch and sample some gin drinks. And it should be something wild and colorful.

It seems like these sort of events require an RSVP, but I didn't see one.

I assume this will be in the upstairs area in the back.

WED 8/17

"Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl"
at Community Boating Boathouse, 21 David Mugar Way, Boston (Esplanade)

Like many movie franchises, the first one is the best. Community Boating invites salty dogs and landlubbers alike to watch our first adventure with Jack Sparrow on outdoor 20' screen. Popcorn is even complimentary.

They say:

Due to licensing restrictions everyone who attends must have a ticket, and tickets are limited.
You can reserve a meal at the Eventbrite page (and bringing your own food is fine).

WED 8/17

StoryLiars: "Rage"
at Milky Way Lounge/Bella Luna, 284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain (The Brewery Complex)

Feat: Ryan Douglas, Tawanda Gona, Dana Jay Bein, Will Noonan, Gary Petersen, Matt D

The idea behind StoryLiars is relatively simple: A group of comedians -- in this setting -- each tell a story based on the evening's theme. All of them are true except for one, and the audience members can win a prize by deducing (or guessing) correctly.

"Rage" should be fun, but most of the true stories have "You're not going to believe this" elements.

Apparently Gary Petersen and Matt D are going to do stand-up instead of telling stories.

Co-hosted by Rob Crean & Walter Cornelius.
