FRI 11/25

Since the two gigs I've listed below are on the folky/rootsy side, I would be remiss if I didn't remind people there's free roots/folk music at Toad or Sally O'Briens (Jimmy Ryan tonight) or Bull McCabes.

And there's free jazz at Wally's.


FRI 11/25

9:15 pm
The Dejas, Sarah Blacker, Jeff Savlon
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$7 / 21+

Some bands play Thanksgiving Eve, but The Dejas seem to have a post-Turkey Day tradition. While they normally cover a lot of musical ground as an acoustic-guitar-and-percussion duo, a drummer is joining them tonight to add dimension to their clever tunes. Singer-songwriters Sarah Blacker and Jeff Savlon will attempt to burn calories by strumming and singing.

FRI 11/25

Cassavettes, Big East, Bearfight, The Autumn Hollow Band, Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion
at The Paradise, 967 Comm. Ave., Boston (near BU)
$15 / 18+

Alt-country rockers Cassavettes played a farewell gig about a year ago, however we know these breaks don't always last. Although it's over $10, it's for a good cause as singing Cassavette Glenn Yoder is raising funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs.

The Reunion show looks like a good time with a bunch of rockin' bands. The Facebook page lists a bunch of raffle prizes. Good times!
