12/5: Monday Briefly

It was 78 years today when the American people made it official that the alcohol Prohibition experiment was a failure.

I didn't put 'em on the calendar, but Bukowski's Tavern (Inman Sq) is having a "Fuck Prohibition!" party will be giving prizes to the best prohibition-era attire starting around 7:30pm.

And the Milky Way/Bella Luna has Stump Trivia at 8pm, and Batch 19 will be "buying beers" for folks (25-cent wings from 7 to 9 pm).

For my fellow X-lovers, John Doe is doing an electric gig at Brighton Music Hall ($15) tonight.


Bach, Mahler, and Brahms are on deck tonight at New England Conservatory's "First Monday" monthly series (8pm / Free).

There's a free art/dance party at Middlesex Lounge (art 8pm / dance 10pm) with a bunch of decorated skulls -- and there should be a "Narragansett tasting"...

BU theatre and dance groups at present their annual free "Aurora Borealis" show tonight (8:30pm - open dress rehearsal) and tomorrow (7pm & 9pm) at the campus Dance Theater. (Watch a clip.)

Kathryn Calder has been singing and playing keyboards with The New Pornographers since the "Twin Cinema" album. She's at Church with her slightly gentler solo stuff (8:30pm / $10 / 21+).

There are few Mondays at Charlies Kitchen that I wouldn't enjoy. For Repeal Day, there are going to be a bunch of rootsy/twangy acts -- and probably some free 'Gansett (9:30pm / $5 / 21+).

At Great Scott, Gauntlet Hair is a Chicago/Colorado duo with loads of reverb and crazy drumming to fill the room. The delightful Dirty Dishes and Birthdays open (9:30pm / $10 / 18+).

Things are rarely what they seem at Jacques Cabaret, it is true that "Perestroika", the Monday night drag show is celebrating its 5th anniversary (10:30pm / $7 / 21+)...
