MON 10/17: Info, Stories, Songs

Shenandoah Davis, tonight at ZuZu
As of today, you can RSVP for the Peabody Museum's Dia de Muertos Fiesta on WED 11/2. The art and culture is much more interesting (and cooler) than Halloween. When I went a few years ago, the food and drink was a nice touch too.

There is is also a StuffBoston RSVP party (6pm to 8pm) at The Greatest Bar on WED 10/19 where you'll probably get free rum cocktails.


MON 10/17

6pm to 9pm
Rock Shop #12: "Marketing That Doesn't Suck"
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston

Panelists: Sooz, Kevin Hoskins, Ben Maitland-Lewis

Again, these sessions are aimed at bands however other creative types may hear some good information about marketing.

MON 10/17

7pm to 8:30pm
"Literary Firsts"
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)

Feat: Janaka Stucky, Danielle Dreilinger, Catherine Parnell, Elizabeth Gormley

I've met (and read material by) a couple of tonight's participants, so I doubt it will be a boring reading. There's also a variety since each "Literary First" includes a poet, essayist, fiction writer, and someone who tells a story about their early sexual experience.

At least there's a bar...

MON 10/17

7pm to 9pm
MassMouth Story Slam: "Wheels"
at Club Passim, 47 Palmer St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$10 / $5 students

Hosts: Richard Fries, Norah Dooley

If you feel like telling a story, ten people will do more than listen at the story slam. Tonight's tales must give their spin on the theme of "wheels".

MON 10/17

Audrey Ryan, Shenandoah Davis
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

If you can handle staying out 'til Midnight (or later) on a Monday night, you'll be rewarded with the fantastic music from two of the finest, most original singers from Boston and Seattle.

Shenandoah Davis is touring with a cellist and drummer/guitarist while Audrey will loop herself into a one-woman band.
