Hey, I thought I put up the events on the calendar earlier. Oops.
The Stereo State, Banquets, Great Lakes, Yale MA
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$7 / 18+
Is it bad that I might want to go to brunch on a Sunday instead of a punk-rock matinee? If you're young, young at heart and/or more hardcore than me, then you'll hear good selection of loud 'n fast. Am digging the pop-punk of The Stereo State and Yale MA. Maybe it's because they're from NJ, I hear a little emo
Bubbe & Avrom Honig, "Feed Me Bubbe: Recipes and Wisdom from America's Favorite Online Grandmother"
at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St, Brookline (Coolidge Corner)
These two could be a Saturday Night Live sketch, but the grandma is pretty adorable -- and the over-enunciating grandson doesn't interject nearly enough to make it a full-on comedy. It seems like Avrom really enjoys spending time with his Bubbe, and it's not where the guy is pushing her to do it.
I think there could be a big crowd for this one...
Winter Opera Scenes
at CFA Concert Hall, 855 Comm Ave, Boston (BU campus)
The thing about watching "opera scenes" is that you don't have to sit through a whole opera. I assume you'll get the highlights from a mix of well-known works and the less-familiar. They say "staged scenes", so it should a bit more than students singing on a bare stage.
Bunny's A Swine, Shepherdess, LadyBust
at Radio, 379 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)
$5 / 21+
If you're into fuzzy, catchy rock that make bob your head or do a silly dance, then Bunny's A Swine has potential to be your new favorite band.
messy indie-pop of Bunny's A Swine
I think it's been a while since I've mentioned that Shepherdess frontwoman Hilken Mancini has been making cool music for years in various bands since Fuzzy and other cool projects like Punk Rock Aerobics and Girls Rock Camp. Shepherdess is more sweet, alt-rock with a twist.
It's also a CD release party for indie-pop Bunny's A Swine, and why not have a puppet show at a party? That may be LadyBust...
