MON 9/5: Fest/Music

Let's hope you have the day off. And that you don't work hard if you don't.


MON 9/5

Noon -- Americana Ensemble
12:45pm -- Beggar's Ride

3pm -- The Boxcar Lilies
3:45pm -- Jean Rohe, Carmel Mikol, Katerina Polemi, Mare Wakefield

How many campfires did you sit around this year? Most of us are counting on one hand, if not one finger or a faint wiggle.

No need to bring marshmallows or graham crackers, it's a campfire minus the fire yet exceptionally more acoustic instruments than usual. These people are much better than the usual crowd that trade songs around a fire pit.

On the bright side, beer and wine is now sold at Passim after 50+ years. On the other hand, tomorrow is Tuesday. No reason you can't enjoy the day with a variety of folky/bluesy tunes all day long.

MON 9/5

Noon to 6pm
Bread and Roses Heritage Festival
at Campagnone Common, about 200 Common St, Lawrence

Celebrate Labor Day in one of the landmark sites of the Labor movement, such as the Bread and Roses strike of 99 years ago.

All sorts of music, dance, activities, historic presentations (12:20pm to 4:15pm), and food will abound all over the Common.

Some performance highlights include Raging Grannies (2:20pm), Ten Tumbao (3pm), and Bread & Puppet Theater Company (5pm).

MON 9/5

Magic People, Zbornak
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

Maybe you can stick it to the man by staying up late on Labor Day and showing up to work hungover.

I recently reevaluated my distaste for Magic People and realized I was thinking of another band. These guys are actually brash and quirky in a good way. I assume Zbornak will rock out at a reasonable volume as well
