Oh, jeez. I hope other people went out and did more than lay on the couch and watch the Pats. There were some good gigs last night.
Before it gets later, something for tonight.
Am planning to get back in the saddle.
"Comedy With Wings"
at Milky Way Lounge / Bella Luna, 284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain (The Brewery Complex)
Feat: Robin Maxfield, Marcy Goldberg Sacks, Shari Vanderwerf, more
As someone with a Y chromosome, the idea of more than a handful of female comedians in "an all female comedy lab" may seem a bit daunting. It can be stand-up or humorous spoken-word, and I have to believe there will be more than female-centric issues.
Madi Diaz (10:45pm), Lucy Schwartz (9:45pm), Micah (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)
When Madi Diaz was at Berklee a few years ago, she would play around town and being in the documentary that inspired Jack Black comedy "School of Rock" was one thing I noticed besides the great songs and vocals. She lives in Nashville now and still sounds great.
It turns out that Lucy Schwartz has had some cinematic success having written songs for several movies including one of the "Twilight" episodes. Micah lives here and does the singer-songwriter with aplomb.
David Champagne & Friends
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)
With: Amy Correia, Treat Her Right, Kimon Kirk, Jess Baggia, more
Almost every night at Toad is a damn-good rootsy time. I get the feeling this is probably going to be a people-singing-with-people, having some laughs kind of gig.
Bon Savants, Marconi, Eldridge Rodriguez
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$9 / 18+
It seems like the Bon Savants make appearances now and then, but their new stuff sounds fantastic. Marconi and Eldridge Rodriguez are not slouches either.
Trabants "Go Go Surf Party"
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+
Yeah, we got some surf bands in town. The Trabants have a new album that they'll play along with some of their face surf records. They'll also do a live set.
They don't say it, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some actual go-go dancing.
