WED 1/4: Talk, Film, Music

Okay, I'll be brief...

There may not be any space, but BCAE is still offering $12 single-session classes tonight and tomorrow. Not a bad price to get you acquainted with Photoshop, Illustrator, or chess...


WED 1/4

6pm to 7:30pm
Ron Della Chiesa, "Radio My Way": Reading
at Stellina Restaurant, 47 Main St, Watertown (Watertown Sq)

Longtime Boston radio legend Ron Della Chiesa has released a book about his life and love of jazz and opera.

They, say, "Free apps; cash bar"

WED 1/4

Radical Movie Night: "The Wind that Shakes the Barley"
at Lucy Parsons Center, 358A Centre St, Jamaica Plain

Director Ken Loach has more than a knack to link personal drama to social issues, and this is one of his best as we watch the fight for Irish independence in the '20s.

I assume there will be some post-film discussion.

WED 1/4

7:30pm to 10:30pm
"Now For Something Completely Different": Part 2
at All Asia Bar, 334 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 18+

Feat: Jesse Friedberg, Adrian Emberley, Lance Riley, Brian Burke, Aaron Shadwell, Nick Consone

When you mix singer-songwriters with Monty Python videos playing in the background, it may not be completely different. It should be good fun for free!

WED 1/4

Red Abbey (11pm), Axemunkee (10pm), Today Junior (9pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$8 / 21+

An interesting mix of hard-driving, female-fronted hard rock from Red Abbey, the superb instrumental rock and guitar heroics of Axemunkee, and shift into indie-rock with Today Junior who don't really have links to their music, but there are YouTube clips like this one.

WED 1/4

The Grateful Dread
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+

A lot of people like reggae, and a lot of people like The Grateful Dead -- so this goes down as a clever idea whether you want to hear the musical love child or not.

WED 1/4

Primordial Sounds: See Thru Band, Olden Yolk
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)
FREE / $5 Donation / 21+

When you have a beautiful flyer like that, why not check out two new, strange, trippy bands along with the usual psych/soul DJ's of pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS.

It's also free, but there's no harm in supporting the bands with a few bucks.
